    Peter Bonetti

    Ex Chelsea and England keeper has died aged aged 78. He took a great deal of stick for England losing the QF to West Germany in the 70 World Cup, but considering Gerd Muller smashed in the winner from only 5 yards out, there was no saying Gordon Banks would have stopped it either. Some on here will remember the game, others won't. Ramsey decided to replace Bobby Charlton, who up to that point had kept Beckenbauer quiet and were leading 2-1 when he went off and the latter controlled the game from then on. Had we won that I think we would have got to the final, but beating Brazil would have been really difficult, the best international team many people have seen. Going back to Bonetti, many thought Stepney should have replaced Banks instead of him, for me Bonetti was a better keeper than Stepney, but that's by and by now.
