England could do with Hart developing and last night might have the happy effect of dispelling some of the hype that's built up around him. Mind you, there are plenty problems in other departments of the team.
Seems like we are the same age. Shilton of course was good but I remember Clemence from his Liverpool days. Always thought Ray was the better goalie.

Plus (as mentioned in a later post) Seaman was NOT a really good goaltender. Banks was but not Seaman. He was always an okay goalie. Nothing special.

I've always had a soft spot for you guys though I'm German.
