    K Gosh was my man. Then in the crucial encounter with Pakistan, chasing under 100 to win, he played a reckless shot and was caught and bowled. Ego go the best of him.

    Clemence could be right, was always better than Shilton, Tony Parks (84 Uefa cup mainly) did some good stuff occasionally, or he may have got his timing wrong and thought Jennings, the greatest 'keeper ever.

    Thanks for ringing my memory bells. Clemence would be right. I didn't find his name the first time I went looking through the archives before making my post.

    He just had this simply heroic - one man against the world game - in the FA cup one year.
