    Listening to the tributes today, that seems to be the universal consensus

    I was nowhere near alive at the time but I don't understand the hype around that particular save against Brazil, it looked pretty routine stuff, you know where the balls going to go before hand and Pele's header bounces taking any and all power away from the ball?

    Well there were some textbook rules in football years and years ago in my day lol..how to kick a ball,how to trap a ball etc.One of the textball ways to head a ball at goal was to head it down away from the keepers hands. Pele did this perfectly against Banks [He generally did everything perfectly] As can be seem that save was just out of this World IMO...
    It's just what makes football Magic!
    RIP Banksie.

    Well even Pele said it was the best save he had ever seen so i would think he knows better then the rest of us.

    One of those great historical figures of the game that you automatically associated with nothing but complete class.

    Astonishing save vs. Pele at the '70 World Cup.

    Before watching the save back over the past few days, I always thought it was overrated. But now I notice how Gordon Banks throws himself backwards collecting the ball behind him. The camera angle makes it difficult to appreciate just how good the save was. Had it been today, we would have seen it from different angles, making it easier to appreciate just how good that save is.

    As usual, it is easier to appreciate someone's efforts when they have passed away.

    Sad news. An underrated band, The Monkees - and a staple of my morning viewing during school holidays when I was a kid.

    I think ‘Great’ might be overstating it slightly.

    Although everyone likes that ones they sang about old monkey head Peter Reid though.

    I don't think that it needs to be qualified. They were a great pop band.
