Posted inNews|Comments Off on This is typical of the 1000s of messages I get every month about Jimmy, especially since he has been so I’ll. this one is from comedian Lester Crabtree talking about Ronaldo and Messi who are currently around 70 goals each behind Jims longstanding all time record of 366 European league goals. Jimmy Greaves was and is a total legend and one of the nicest people I’ve worked with…and again they wouldn’t beat his record on the pitches he played on or the defenders that were gouging his legs…Genius.
Posted inNews|Comments Off on Just received this from a really nice guy, we have had thousands like it , illustrating Jimmys greatness as a person. I had the pleasure of meeting and playing with the great man at Caster holiday camp near Yarmouth on1961 when he left AC Milan to join spurs. He was there for a week being filmed by Anglia television. The camp picked a team including Jimmy and Bobby Smith and I and two mates had the pleasure in playing too. We had a fantastic week with jimmy he is one of the most genuine people I have ever met and I pray and wish him all the best for a speedy recovery. Love and regards from a Arsenal fan. Peter McGill. PS please pass this onto Jimmy.
Posted inNews|Comments Off on Jimmy Greaves appeal. Terry Baker appeared on ITV main news in London region today 26.8.15 to try and help the justgiving.com/jimmygreaves appeal to raise money for Jims long and arduous rehabilitation programme. Any small donations gratefully received. Jimmy is still very unwell and needs if we can praise some funds, virtual round the clock care. If you feel able to help in some small way we would be grateful. He is unlikely to appear in public ever again and it is so sad but we are fighting hard to at least try and get him on his feet again for the future
