A Proud Tradition


Recommended Posts

The clapping of opposing Goalkeepers is a proud tradition, and is rooted in a historical appreciation of excellent goalkeeping displays, whomsoever they may be by - even though it has in the past brought the best out in some keepers, to our detriment. That appreciation and affection for a good keeper apparently goes back to the days of Elisha Scott and when our Telex address was 'Goalkeeper'.


So let us now add another name to a pantheon of excellence that includes the adored Banks and the peerless Jennings, and even the likes of Southall, Martyn and Schmeichel - immense respect to Iker Casillas for last night, a fantastic display that deserved better from those in front of him. Showed due respect to The Kop as well. I love Pepe, but there is no shame in being number 2 to possibly the best in the world.
