Mike, I was at the game that night against Stoke as well, which was I think the 1st or 2nd leg of the League Cup semi final as it was called then? I was at the opposite end to the penalty, I thought Geoff Hurst shouldn’t take it as Banks was familiar with Hurst from the England squad, I couldn’t bare to watch so turned my back knowing the crowd would let us soon know, then heard a massive groan from the crowd so knew he had missed. I watched the highlights that night on TV and Banks’s save was magnificent, Hurst was a great striker of a penalty and most times he would bulge the net, but he hit it with venom high to Bank’s top right hand corner, Banks saved brilliantly by guessing which side Hurst would go and tipped it over the bar, bloody depressing end to the night, out we went 👎👎.
