Sad to hear of the passing of the greatest 'keeper that ever lived. And to think, if Ron Greenwood had not be such a gent GB might have played domestically alongside fellow 1966 heroes Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters - had then-manager Ron Greenwood not refused to renege on an agreement to sign Bobby Ferguson from Scottish side Kilmarnock.

Greenwood, who had been in discussion with Leicester regarding potentially signing Banks became frustrated at how long negotiations were taking and with the need for a new goalkeeper to replace Jim Standen becoming ever more urgent, turned instead to Ferguson.

Discussion with Kilies boss Malcolm MacDonald - a former team mate of Greenwood's at Brentford - were short and successful, at the end of which Greenwood agreed to pay a world-record fee of 65,000 for the Scottish stopper just as soon as their Fairs Cup (a forerunner of the Europa League) campaign had ended.

Yet shortly after the two shook hands on the deal, Leicester boss Matt Gillies contacted Greenwood to say that Leicester had agreed to sell Banks to West Ham for just 50,000 - little more than a year after the 'keeper had starred for England in the 1966 World Cup Final.

In retrospect Greenwood's decision to reject Leicester's offer may appear short-sighted but always a man of principal, Greenwood had already given Kilmarnock and Ferguson his word - hence the Banks deal was cancelled.

Banks, who had been keen to team up with his three World Cup-winning team mates signed instead for Stoke City - and instead of playing behind behind Bobby Moore, was to face him as an opposing goalkeeper when West Ham and Stoke met in an epic four-game League Cup semi final in 1972.

Thanks to those knowledgeable people at KUMB for the story
