Bonetti emerged as a key figure in a talented young side which included Bobby Tambling , Terry Venables , John Hollins and Barry Bridges ; the team went into the penultimate match of the season needing to beat promotion rivals Sunderland to have a chance of going up. Chelsea won 1—0, with Bonetti making a brilliant last minute save to deny George Mulhall and maintain his side's promotion chances; a 7—0 win over Portsmouth secured instant promotion back to the First Division.
The new Chelsea side challenged for honours during the s, with Bonetti a key figure throughout, although more often than not the team narrowly missed out.
Chelsea won the League Cup in with a 3—2 aggregate victory over Leicester City. Leicester put Chelsea under heavy pressure in the second leg at Filbert Street , but an inspired performance from Bonetti helped secure a 0—0 draw for his side and thus the trophy. For most of the same season, Chelsea were on course to add both the league title and the FA Cup but ultimately missed out, they were beaten by Liverpool in the FA Cup while the title challenge was ended with a few games left after a bust-up between Docherty and several of his first-team players — though not Bonetti — meaning that a much-weakened team was fielded in a key match against Burnley , in which Bonetti conceded six goals.
Bonetti played in every game of Chelsea's Fairs Cup run the following season, putting in a series of impressive displays against the likes of AS Roma , AC Milan and FC Barcelona , though the side were eventually knocked out in the semi-finals, as they were in the FA Cup for the second consecutive year; the signing of Alex Stepney at the end of that season briefly threatened his position as Chelsea's first choice goalkeeper and he considered putting in a transfer request, but Stepney ultimately played only one game for the club and was sold to Manchester United a few months later.
Chelsea eventually reached an FA Cup final in , where they faced Tottenham Hotspur , but the team got outplayed on the day and Bonetti could do little to stop Spurs winning 2—1. That was the closest he came to winning another trophy with Chelsea until , by which time Docherty had been succeeded by Dave Sexton. Over the two fiercely contested games, Bonetti had what was perhaps the finest moment of his playing career. Chelsea were outplayed for large spells in the first final at Wembley and he made a series of crucial saves to help them emerge with a 2—2 draw.
Shortly into the replay at Old Trafford , his left knee was badly injured after a challenge from Leeds' Mick Jones , he returned to the field after treatment, but was effectively playing on one leg for the rest of the match and was powerless to stop Jones scoring the opener a few minutes later.
In spite of the injury, and being targeted by the Leeds forwards, he made crucial saves throughout the match, denying both Peter Lorimer and Terry Cooper , and resisted more pressure from Leeds after Chelsea had taken the lead in extra time to help secure a 2—1 win; such were Bonetti's performances that season, he was voted runner-up in the FWA Footballer of the Year awards. Chelsea took a 2—0 lead in the replay, but Real dominated for much of the second half and it was another inspired performance from Bonetti, who had missed a large part of that season through injury, which helped them hold on for a 2—1 win.
That was his last trophy with the club, although they narrowly missed out on more in the following years, losing in the League Cup final to Stoke City and in the semi-finals of the same competition to Norwich City a year later. Financial and disciplinary problems within the club prevented them from building on their success. Bonetti left on a free transfer in , joining the St.
That year, he played 21 games for the side and helped them top the Central Division that summer and reach the play-off semi-finals. He then returned to Chelsea, where his experience proved invaluable in helping new manager Eddie McCreadie 's young side gain promotion in — Two years later, in May , he played his final game for Chelsea, a 1—1 draw with Arsenal , having made a total of appearances for the club in nineteen years — only Ron Harris has made more — and kept over clean sheets , he conceded one goal or less in two-thirds of his games for Chelsea.
Bonetti had a somewhat unlucky international career, he emerged in an era of talented English goalkeepers and thus faced stiff competition for a place in the side, particularly from Ron Springett and Gordon Banks , and later Peter Shilton , which limited him to just seven caps.
He was a member of England's successful World Cup squad , but didn't make an appearance, his career with the England national side is also largely remembered for one match — the FIFA World Cup quarter-final against West Germany in Mexico , when he was thrust into the starting line-up as a late replacement for Banks, who was suffering from a stomach problem. During the match England relinquished a second-half lead and lost after extra time. Bonetti was one of the scapegoats for the loss, with critics faulting him on the first and second goals, although it is debatable to what extent he can be blamed for either, he conceded one goal in his other six international matches.
In the World Cup final only the 11 players on the pitch at the end of the 4—2 win over West Germany received medals.
Following a Football Association led campaign to persuade FIFA to award medals to all the winners' squad members , Bonetti was presented with his medal by Gordon Brown at a ceremony at 10 Downing Street on 10 June After leaving Chelsea, Bonetti moved to the Isle of Mull where he became a postman. While living in Scotland, he briefly came out of retirement to play several games for Dundee United as understudy to Hamish McAlpine.
Following his retirement from playing, Bonetti moved into coaching and had spells with Chelsea and the England national side, as well as working with Kevin Keegan at Newcastle United , Fulham and Manchester City. At one time he held the record for the most appearances for a single club by a goalkeeper, but was overtaken in the s by Portsmouth 's Alan Knight.
Since , Bonetti has made several appearances for an Old England XI in various charity games, notably against celebrity sides, usually coming on for the last 10 minutes of each game. Totals include one Charity Shield appearance in — It has a seating capacity of 80,, making it one of the largest stadiums in Europe , the largest in Italy. Construction of the stadium commenced in in the district of Milan named San Siro, with the new stadium named Nuovo Stadio Calcistico San Siro; the idea to build a stadium in the same district as the horse racing track belonged to the president of A.
Milan at the time, Piero Pirelli ; the architects designed a private stadium only for football, without athletics tracks which characterized Italian stadiums built with public funds. The inauguration was on 19 September , when 35, spectators saw Inter defeat Milan 6—3. The ground was home and property of A. In , who used to play in the Arena Civica downtown, became tenants and the two have shared the ground since. From to , engineers Armando Ronca and Ferruccio Calzolari developed the project for the second extension of the stadium, meant to increase the capacity from 50, to , visitors.
Calzolari and Ronca proposed three additional, vertically arranged, rings of spectator rows. Nineteen spiralling ramps — each metres long — gave access to the upper tiers. During construction, the realisation of the highest of the three rings was abandoned and the number of visitors limited to , On 2 March the stadium was named for Giuseppe Meazza, one of the most famous Milanese footballers.
Milan winning both matches; the reaction of Inter's fans to impending defeat in the latter match earned the club a large fine and a four-game ban on spectators attending European fixtures there the following season. Apart from being used by Milan and Inter, the Italian national team plays games there. It was used by Juventus for their'home' leg in as they decided against playing their biggest matches at their own Stadio delle Alpi at the time. On each occasion, apart from , the second leg was played at San Siro and the winners lifted the trophy there.
However, the stadium has not yet been selected as the host stadium since the competition changed to a single-match final format in — Milan; the city was the venue for the edition of the Latin Cup, but those matches were played at Arena Civica. As part of the renovations, the stadium became all seated, with an extra tier being added to three sides of the stadium. This entailed the building of 11 concrete towers around the outside of the stadium. Four of these concrete towers were located at the corners to support a new roof, which has distinctive protruding red girders.
In a museum was opened inside the stadium charting A. Milan and Inter's story, with historical shirts and trophies, art objects and souvenirs of all kinds on display to visitors; the stadium held three matches.

He played two last seasons in the United States for the Fort Lauderdale Strikers in and , despite only having vision in one eye, was NASL Goalkeeper of the Year in after posting the best defensive record in the league, he entered management with Telford United , but left the game in December Banks was born in Abbeydale and brought up in the working-class area of Tinsley; the family moved to the village of Catcliffe after his father set up a betting shop.
This brought greater prosperity but misery. Banks left school in December , aged 15, took up employment as a bagger with a local coal merchant, which helped to build up his upper body strength. He spent a season playing for amateur side Millspaugh after their regular goalkeeper failed to turn up for a match. His performances there earned him a game in the Yorkshire League for Rawmarsh Welfare , however a 12—2 defeat to Stocksbridge Works on his debut was followed by a 3—1 home defeat, he was dropped by Rawmarsh and returned to Millspaugh.
Still aged 15, he switched jobs to become a hod carrier, he was scouted by Chesterfield whilst playing for Millspaugh, offered a six-game trial in the youth team in March Banks was posted to Germany with the Royal Signals on national service, won the Rhine Cup with his regimental team, he recovered from a fractured elbow to help the Chesterfield youth team to the final of the FA Youth Cup.
Banks was given his first team debut by manager Doug Livingstone , at the expense of long-serving Ron Powell , in a Third Division game against Colchester United at Saltergate in November ; the game ended 2—2, Banks kept his place against Norwich City in the following match. With no goalkeeping coach to guide him, Banks had to learn from his mistakes on the pitch, he soon developed into a modern vocal goalkeeper who ordered the players in front of him into a more effective defence. Banks faced competition from five other goalkeepers, including year-old Scotland international John Anderson and year-old Dave MacLaren , he started the —60 season as the reserve team's goalkeeper.
This in effect made him the club's second choice, ahead of four of his rivals but behind first team choice MacLaren. He had played four reserve team games when MacLaren picked up an injury, manager Matt Gillies selected Banks for his Leicester debut against Blackpool at Filbert Street on 9 September; the match finished 1—1, with Jackie Mudie's strike cancelling out Ken Leek's opener.
With McLaren fit again, Banks was sent back to the reserves but, after the first team conceded 14 goals in the next five games, he was recalled and became the first-choice goalkeeper for the remainder of the season; the defensive record did not improve at first, with Banks conceding six in a heavy defeat by Everton at Goodison Park , but he improved in each match and the Foxes settled for a comfortable 12th-place finish. In training, he worked extensively such as coming for crosses, he put in extra hours during training and came up with practice sessions to improve his skills — this was unique in an era where there.
