    Brian, they’ve made a film about Bert Trautmann coming out in a few months if you’ve not heard. Broke his neck in the cup final and kept playing didn’t he?

    Mikus, thanks for the info, yes I did know, I have also read Trautmans book, this probably inspired the film, it should be a good story if the film makers do not make a hash of it. Yes , he did break his neck in that Final. I guess in City’s history we have had , mostly, good keepers. I do not like compareing players and I can only go on what I see as plusses and minus, For me Trautmann was more athletic, brave and a supberb keeper. Swift was more a showman BUT he had ability beyond most in his era and I have yet to see a keeper to match him, keeping in mind the heavy leather balls and ground conditions he played under. He was throwing the heavy ball out to Maurice Dunkerley on the centre line long before to days fashion and he was accurate. He also made you laugh at some of his antics, the crowd loved him
    The penalty area was truly his domain

    GJ sorry for your loss bud, glad the footy cheered you up a bit.
    Beni, tough times mate, seeing anyone deteriorate health wise is always difficult but when it’s immediate family it’s painful beyond words. Football really is insignificant in comparison, take care mate, stick with family & get each other through the tough times. I went through similar recently & family will get you through.
