I remember teaching English to a class of West German schoolchildren back in 1981/2, and talking about London football clubs. As soon as I said the words "Tottenham Hotspur", they yelled back the words "Ray Clemence!" He was a real rarity in those days - an English footballer so good everyone, everywhere, knew and respected his name.

Great keeper

Just read he played 800 games for Liverpool and Spurs plus 61 games for England, thats some career, could hardly ever have been injured, great shame.

sr   I started off watching Liverpool behind The Anfield Road goal in the late 60's probably about time Ray Clemence started playing for the first team. I think I got behind the goal about 12ish when the gates opened. Happy days..

same for me billy except in the stretford end in for 12 stood there for 3 hours as you say happy days.

He was such a nice guy from the interviews I've seen him give over the years.

After playing he became a dedicated coach at the highest level (England/FA)

Truly someone you could look up to.

jim nast, I remember the excitement playing Man Utd, Leeds, Everton and City. Stepney, Best, Charlton, Law, Sprake, Bremner, West, Ball, Kendall, Ray Clemence, Keegan, Toshack, Emlyn Hughes, Corrigan, Franny Lee, Bell, Summerbee, Shankly and Bob Paisley, Busby, Catterick, Joe Mercer. I can name more players from fifty years ago than I can name now.

but always behind ray and peter any other era he would
be number 1 without a doubt

Because Corrigan was such a giant physically, people maybe overlooked his skill.

I think you'll find Utd v Spurs was the game of the season back in the 60s.
Report jimnast November 15, 2020 6:07 PM GMT
when i saw you had posted loper i had a feeling you would say that fair point spurs was always a game to look forward to although i was meaning the 70s really.

the pat jennings goal at old trafford loper can you remember the reason for the fixture ?

no whatyourlookingat the other side although as my dad is a city fan it was maine road i went to before old trafford but once allowed to go on my own the lure of george best won,i have never been anti city and always liked joe mercer ,colin bell and of course the best friend of george mike summerbee,later in life i became a friend of mike doyles great players great characters sadly in some ways for them born 40 years to soon when you think they all had 2nd jobs .

hey billy remember peter barnes he was special
never seen anybody like him when he first came to city
Report jimnast November 15, 2020 6:33 PM GMT
to be honest billy we all apprechiate what we had back then great characters pulling there tripe out for the fans ,whilst franny like to dive around a bit most players were honest there were so few injuries only a broken leg would make them miss a game,the united team travelled by train with fans and the public to euston for the 68 european cup final ,they made there own way to piccadilly some by bus some by taxi some just dropped of by family,can you imagine telling a premier footballer today been told to meet at the station were on the train with joe public not a chance.and of course the biggest factor is every team has numerous cheats.

RIP Great Keeper could never make up my mind if Clemence or Shilton was the best and think England manager couldn't either.
Report BARROWBOY November 15, 2020 11:11 PM GMT
Personally I think Shilton was a slightly better keeper but Clemence was often favoured because of his familiarity with the play of England’s Liverpool defenders Hughes,neal & Thompson.anyway,rip he was a class act

Hi Jimnast,

was it the Charity Shield?

I remember being at OT for the FA Cup when Best nicked the ball from Jennings' grasp and stuck it in the onion bag!

I got beaten up by a cowardly group of Utd thugs on leaving the ground. Coincidentally, Peter Cook suffered the same fate.
