Top 5 goalkeepers in England

I contacted some friends who log onto the website regularly and asked them to send me their choices for the “top 5 goalkeepers in England from 1920 - 2015”.  They duly obliged and their choices are quite diverse and yet nearly all of them recognise goalkeepers from the past. I have listed their choices below giving 5 points for the 1st choice down to 1 point for the 5th choice.
