    Running home from Saturday morning football as a kid to catch Saint & Greavsie starting. Or if I was in Glasgow for the game, I watched it in the pub on London Rd. R.I.P. Jimmy Greaves.

    Would still score a lot of goals in today's game with his style of play. He was ahead of his time.

    Not to shabby when you look at it lol..Gazza before gazza was even born, but with a brain,that probably spawned the pundits of today tbh. * of a record as a player.


    Former England striker and Tottenham's record goalscorer Jimmy Greaves has died at the age of 81.

    Greaves began his career with Chelsea before spells at AC Milan, Spurs and West Ham.

    He scored 44 goals in 57 games for England and was a member of the 1966 World Cup-winning squad.

    He holds the record for most goals in the English top flight with 357, and scored 266 in 379 matches for Tottenham.

    Greaves' 41 goals in 1960-61 remains a record in a season for Chelsea, and he also holds the Spurs record with 37 in 1962-63.
