My boyhood footballing hero, one of the greatest. Just been catching up on a few Saint and Greavsie shows - thanks Jimmy for all the enjoyment you brought to football.

His goals-per-game scoring ratio for Spurs is better than Harry Kane. Only Nat Lofthouse has a better ratio for England.

World class striker that never got the recognition his talent deserved.

And sadly Jimmy sold the medal for 44k to fund his care, apart from the lifelong disappointment of missing the 66 final, he also missed out like many other great players, on the huge influx of money into the game.

I came across this link which has Greavsie talking about his great friendship with Bobby Moore and the things they got up to while playing for England....
