The truly legendary Gordon Banks.

We have that Chesterfield production line to thank.

That he didn’t win even more England caps is a mystery.

The save from Pele will go down in history.

Gordon Banks a World cup winner.

Remembered fondly from Stoke to Pinner.

Gordon Banks you lived the dream…

Played for England’s greatest ever team.

Under the stewardship of Alf Ramsay.

Gordon Banks, many thanks. R.I.P

Emilio Sala never kicked a ball….

For Cardiff city. His plane crashed into the English channel.

He could’ve taken the Premiership by storm.

But for the good to die young, is the norm.

Now, in a small Argentinian town, they grieve.

Life sucks sometimes. This is what i believe.

Emilio Sala never even kicked a ball….

For Cardiff city. But he left his mark on supporters one and all.

Emilio Sala….

May have been a huge star.

We’ll never know.

At Nantes they felt the body blow.

Emilio Sala never even kicked a football….

In the Premiership but made an impact on us all.

Emilio Sala never even kicked a football for Cardiff city….

He could’ve won “Goal of the month” on “Match of the day”. More’s the pity.
