Peter (The Cat) Bonetti

Recommended Posts

The sad death of Chelsea great Peter Bonetti has been reported today.

Sadly pilloried for one mistake in the 1970 World Cup Final against West Germany in Mexico whilst standing in for an ill Gordon Banks. The blame rested entirely with Alf Ramsey and his substitution of Bobby Charlton.

At the time England had an enviable choice of world class goalkeepers, Forest's Peter Grummitt among them.
