  • RIP Jimmy Greaves

    Tottenham Hotspur legend and my boyhood hero died last night aged 81. I'll be joining him soon. I have lung cancer.

    Sorry to hear about Jimmy Greaves and your own illness, Pussywilow. My late mother had the disease and died from lung cancer as well, although she had smoked for decades.

    Did he really say "it's a funny old game" or was that the impressionists that concocted that?

    Anyway, in addition to football, Greavesie was also TV-am's television critic and also hosted programmes for Central TV. He wore his Sporting Triangles sweater on Saint and Greavesie once which was funny.

    Ironically enough, I happened to start the Ian St John thread on here last year when he passed away but it was deleted for some strange reason - thought that I would mention that here for obvious reasons.

      What words can I use to describe Jimmy? As Gary Linekar said - he was great in the Box and on it -and that is right 1000%

      Saint and Greavsie was so funny as these 2 but made their show so fashionable by talking utter rubbish and pulling it off .... and as for Jimmy's Career ... par Messi and Ronaldo nobody would be near him these -particulary Hat-tricks wise and his performance in the 9-3 England win over Scotland in 1961 with a Hat-trick

      Rip jimmy greaves - a real real legend

          Have a look at the Christmas 1990 edition of Saint and Greavesie where Jimmy was unwell and so they had to bring in his Spitting Image puppet in instead - should be on YT.

            It's still a terrifying thing though - not having it in the first place is better than getting it and beating it.
