Ray Clemence | 1977-1979

Club: Liverpool

Growth Type: Standard/Lasting


England had a hotly contested competition between their goalies in the 70's. After Gordon Banks lost the sight in one of his eyes, the competition unfolded leaving; Peter Shilton, Ray Clemence, Joe Corrigan and Peter Bonetti as contenders for the #1 jersey. As we all know, Shilton won most of the accolades in comparison to the others but quite frankly, he shouldn't of. Clemence was just as good a keeper as Shilton, if not better. For one simple reason, he had the most superb positional sense of possibly any England keeper. He always changed his position according to the intensity and level of play, he could see moves coming ahead and would just move into a decent enough position to win the ball. Which earned him the reputation of "Best England goalie" in a 2001 Total Football survey. Okay, he wasn't that good, but he should have had far more caps for England.
