Subject: Best Save?

As much as I admire Gunok's save for his positioning and athletisism, I still think Gordon Banks save was better. Pele's header was lower on the bounce, more powerful and steered much nearer towards the post. The ball would have been heavier and Banks's gloves inferior. The ball was almost behind the line so he had to scoop it up and out. Baumgartner's header bounced nicely within Gunok's range of reach. If he'd missed it the commentator's would have said he should have saved it. Not sure the same could be said of Banks. Still a great save though.
