Yes, England's greatest striker by a country mile.
Always had good banter with the crowds too.

I loved watching him. Very sad news.

RIP

Not a spurs fan ,but what a player ,the greatest natural scorer this country has ever produced. Remember the back pages of the sunday newspapers showing him scoring and leaving players on the floor after dribbling round them. Also a great laugh on Saint and Greaves Saturday morning. You really dont get any players like him anymore.If anyone gets the chance watch the BBC film on him recently made.

He was just slightly before my time but I heard stories of how good he was. Not 100% sure but was told he did sweet fa most of the game then he would get the ball and come alive. He had tremendous acceleration and an eye for goal. Generally regarded as the best goal scorer we have ever produced. A funny guy and successful businessman.

R.I.P. Jimmy

Rest In Peace, Jimmy.
I finished reading the Alan Gilzean biography last night.

My memory of Jimmy Greaves is Spurs losing 1-0, it is late in the game, and Jimmy has been doing nothing.
Then Jimmy scores two goals, and Spurs win 2-1.
That game probably never happened, but that is how I remember him - goals from nothing.

The modern day player that imo had a similar style to Jimmy was Romario.
Interception, drift past the defender, roll the goal past the keeper into the goal.

i saw him a few times live,
had a great goal record for england anyway but martin tyer just said on sky that jimmy told him he was englands pen taker and they went 50 games on bounce without getting a pen, NO DIVERS/CHEATS in those days obviously Devil

and Greaves scored with what Moynihan described as “devastating nonchalance”. The magnificently patrician Geoffrey Green of the Times came close, however, observing on another occasion that when Greaves slipped the ball into goal, “it was like someone closing the door of a Rolls-Royce”.
