Ray was the best goal keeper at the club since Pat Jennings.
He was immense and strangely the greatest match I saw him play was against us.
It was early 70s and we got a draw at Anfield, so we got a replay at WHL. We threw everything at him and he saved it. Don't remember the exact result, but I think we lost 0-1. I went home that night and absolutely hated him.
However I was overjoyed when he signed for us and even when he let one slip through his hands against Barcelona, the crowd cheered him because he had saved us so many points. Great loss today, so soon after Martin Peters.

Incredibly sad. I'm of an age where I only remember him as a Spurs player but he had an incredible career before that too, even with Shilton around.

That Barcelona mistake and one he made against Coventry at home are the only 2 I can remember ... 2 mistakes in 6 years, pretty good!
