    A particular attribute of Mr Banks is that he seemed to have the amazing skill of diving for a ball and actually holding and collecting it as opposed to palming or punching it away. Even to this day, few goalkeepers seem to have this skill.

    I've only seen clips of him but it seemed to me his positional play was so good that he didn't have to dive much but just catch the ball

    I have to be honest in that memory is a very nebulous thing and nostalgia is a very strong force. Maybe it's difficult to be objective....

    David Marshall's Villa save was an amazing reaction save.

    Schmeichel was an exceptional keeper, nowt better than him in the 90s. Even more remarkable because of his size - and I don't mean his height.

    I'm too young to have seen him play so only seen the best bits really where he just always seemed to be in the right place, personally just based on highlights as I wasn't even born when either was playing but I would prefer Jennings

    Jennings was a superb keeper who seemed to dominate his area and had excellent handling skills. I couldn't even try to compare the two but, along with Shilton, there were a few superb keepers around.

    Agree. He was reaching backwards and still pushed it away. Phenomenal.

    Big Nev used to catch it a lot too.

    I wonder if its coached out of them now. Too risky to drop it so get it as far away as possible.

    Nostalgia also plays it's part and Pele was considered the best player ever.
    (note that this was the first time I'd ever seen a football match in colour!)

    I still think it was a special save and as was mentioned in another thread, it would be special even today.

    I am therefore of the opinion that it is the best save of all time
    Posh ba5tard. We managed a colour TV rented from Redifussion in about 1979 I think.

    Re: "That" save

    I can remember mitching off school for the afternoon to watch something like Crown Court and racing from Cartmel on the day we had our first colour telly - I was in the sixth form, so I reckon it was 1973.

    Re: "That" save

    Think we had our first colour telly in about 1974. We'd been to the Monico on the Saturday morning then my dad picked us up and took us to get it. First thing I remember seeing was horse racing on World of Sport. Was disappointed though the Champion the Wonder Horse and Tarzan were still in black and white.

    This I agree with. I can't understand why keepers palm it away these days, when catching it would be just as easy and a lot safer.

    Posh?

    I didn't say it was OUR colour telly. My old man took us over the docks and we watched it in the pub!

    No, we had to wait until 1974 for ours, also a rented rediffusion and, coincidentally, we got it just before the Germany world cup tournament. I remember loads of 'mates' round, very popular I was

    You try telling t'youngsters that today... they won't believe ya!

    Surprised there's been no mention of Peter "The Cat" Bonetti. I didn't realise he made 600 appearances for Chelsea.

    Schmeical (I could never spell that correctly) came from a background of playing handball didn't he?

    Looks like you're right. There was an article in 442 in August 2003 which mentions it.

    I didn't know, but up until he was 7 years old, he was Polish.
