Re: Liverpool vs West Ham

To be fair, a rare error from Ray Clemence, as was Shilton's in 1973 against Poland at Wembley ... Scotland's goalkeepers, however, are deserving of their own thread, I think ! How Adam Blacklaw only won 3 Caps is beyond me, although I understand the S.F.A. were reluctant to pick Anglo-Scots at tha...
