    Just watching this now. I have no idea how a top side never signed him, I wish we had.

    I presume you mean Gordon.

    Big Mal wanted to buy him and left Sir Joe to sort it out. Joe tried to do a deal, but in the mean time, Stoke came in and offered the full £50 000 and Leicester accepted.

    Madness. I remember him single handedly holding us at bay in a 1-2 defeat at home to Stoke, Easter 1972. We absolutely battered them but he was everywhere, save after save, probably cost us the title that year.

    I was at that game, and yes he did stop us winning the title.
    Top keeper.
