Pat Jennings should be number one. If any of the above had played for Northern Ireland they would have not been even notice as a top keeper. This is the man who also scored for spurs in his prime. A legend and a saint Patrick Jennings all hail the messier. Eat your words joe

Too many people are taken in by Yashin's 152 penalty saves there is only penalty misses. Any professional player who can't score from the spot isn't worth his money. If they were told a week's wages would be deducted if they missed a penalty, many more would be scored. That said Yashin was a great keeper. However I personally think Banks was better.
