    Posthumously maybe?

    RIP Gordon.

    Wonderful goalkeeper and a nice fella to boot.

    He really was the best 'keeper I've ever seen. His positional sense was staggeringly good and like all the great players he made it seem all too easy. Calm. Assured. Only occasionally spectacular. One of England's very great players.

    Thanks for the memories Gordon and for 1966.

    The greatest GK I ever saw. An icon throughout the football world. A family man who was loyal, modest, self effacing, generous, fair, honest, focussed, successful and above all else nice, the nicest of men. Men of his calibre are rare jewels. As a schoolboy whenever Gordon Banks was playing for England I felt safe, and happy that we would win. More often than not, we did. It is always a sign of our mortality when those who the gods blessed, the heroes of our childhood, pass away. Gordon Banks, a life well lived, a memory to be treasured, a man of integrity.

    Lovely tribute Essex, spot on. One of the few who seemed completely unaffected by the fame the game brought him - a lovely guy. Rest in glory Gordon, always a hero.

    You had hair ?

    RIP , seemed a genuinely nice bloke as well as being one of the greatest if not the greatest keeper ever.
    Every single member of the 66 squad should of been knighted it's a travesty he wasn't.

    Sad news indeed. All of the tributes that have been paid to him seem very genuine rather than the usual platitudes you hear after some "celebrity" deaths.
