    Another shock. Why is so many well known people dying this year, is it related to the pandemic or is just coincidences.

    Rest In Peace Ray. Memorable for Tottenham and Liverpool and England.

    Rest In Peace Des O’Connor who has also sadly passed away.

    Yeah, very sad news about Clem. He had just started at Liverpool when I went to my first game, and for ten years he was pretty much an ever present. He was one of the first keepers who almost acted as a sweeper for his defenders. But he was also responsible for probably the best save I ever saw live. My first game in the Kop against Wolves and I was right behind the goal, and the Wolves striker John Richard caught a volley so sweet from about 12 yards out, and Clem flew across the goal and tipped it round the post. A phenomenal save I was in a perfect position to witness it.

    It was strange when he left Liverpool as we were very much top dogs at the time and it seemed a downward step to go to Spurs, but of course he went on to have a great career with them also. I was always biased of course but I considered him a better keeper than Shilton. A sad loss, but thanks for the memories, Clem

    Straight out of Wiki.

    Clemence died on 15 November 2020, after 15 years with prostate cancer. He was 72. Very sad.
