    RIP Gordan Banks.

    Have always thought his save that stopped the world was vastly over hyped and could name a handful of DDG saves alone from last few years that would beat it hands down.

    It was.
    He was English and it was against Pele in the WC.
    It was without doubt a fine save and looked more spectacular because Banks put it over the bar.
    Pele to this day does not know how Gordon got it up.

    "Last week, it appeared that a British man had been arrested in the UAE for wearing a Qatar football shirt, unaware that even seeming to promote Qatar in the UAE is punishable by a prison sentence and hefty fine. Issa Ahmad claimed to have been beaten after his arrest, but the UAE authorities have since claimed he beat himself up. They duly charged Ahmad with wasting police time and making false statements and he is now awaiting trial, where he faces up to 15 years in prison."

    Crikey. Very unusual rules in the middle East. A very strange world cup awaits us in Qatar.

    Barca had 20 shots on goal in the game yesterday. He had 12 of them and assisted the other 8.

    He must be a decent player. We should consider signing him.

    He'd probably do a job alright:)

    In all seriousness though,I really hope he never plays for any other club. There's not much romanticism in football anymore,but the best player in the history of the game spending his whole career at the same club would be nice to see.

    No game intelligence either.
    Just puts his head down, beats 10 players and shoots.
