I'd like to think he was acknowledged for being a world cup winner as well but yes, people do still talk about THAT save.

A hero in many England footie fan's eyes.

Couple over the last few days:

Bruno Ganz - German actor, face of a million memes after playing Hitler in Downfall

John Stalker - odd career arc, from deputy head of Manchester Police to advertising garden shades on daytime TV. Presented various crime programs after he retired.

Peter Tork from The Monkees RIP.

Often dismissed as being a "boy band". They were good after they shed the TV company/record label shackles.


One of the first Proto Hard Rock bands. They even had Jimi Hendrix as their support act.

As an example this is from 1967.
