Gordon Banks – A Goalkeeper with Magic ….

Gordon Banks – A Goalkeeper with Magic ….

Paul Vance reflects on childhood memories of Gordon Banks, who died last Tuesday, aged 81. August 1970 – I’m a starry-eyed 7-year-old, who can barely believe he’s on his way with dad to watch an English First Division club play. Back then it was the stuff of fantasy, only visible on black and white TV. Now I was going to see the real thing, not only in color, but within touching distance. And the star attraction was England’s peerless goalkeeper, Gordon Banks, who they all said was, “… the best in the World!” Just weeks before, I was watching the great man play in the...

Who you’ll see when Sounders face Nacional of Uruguay

Schmetzer is using rotation to build fitness, so this is who we think will get the most minutes. While the core group of likely starters is on a Saturday-Saturday pattern, the friendly against Nacional is in front of the home crowd, and it is Nicolas Lodeiro’s boyhood club.

But Seattle Sounders coach Brian Schmetzer can also use the 90 minutes against Nacional to get a handful of players closer to fitness and to increase the...
