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.
