    best goalkeepers ever?

    Totally agree.
    I saw him come for a corner, catch the ball above his head with one hand and bring it down behind his back - all while under pressure. Brilliant keeper.

    When you look back, we've had some absolultely brilliant players at the Lane..and some of the current bunch have the talent to be counted if they live up to their potential.

    • Too true, Pat is a legend.

      Who can forget the 2 penalty saves in the same match at Anfield (and his out of character response after saving the second one!).

      I also remember seeing him play against Wolves at "the Lane" the season we went down. The Wolves players were shaking their heads in disbelief as Pat pulled off one world class save after the other.

      Even when he went to the "other club" he used to get a wonderful response from the Spurs faithful (and it took us years to score a goal against him).

      All that and a kind, quiet gentleman to boot!
