A severe stroke so going to be unlikely but let's hope he was seen to quickly, sometimes reversible, sometimes function comes back with therapy and naturally in time.

Very sad. Will never forget the early shows in my youth with Ian St John and the crew cracking up over their jokes

Jimmy Greaves was probably the greatest striker not to really get the international recognition he deserved. Gayle could be a lot like him, hanging round the box. Also a great character and I hope he can recover.

If Gayle was half as good then we would be very lucky. Greaves was no doubt the greatest English goalscorer in the past 50 years.

He played over 50 times for England, including the World cup

Gayle, couldn't be anything like him he doesn't have 10% of Greaves ability

I met Jimmy last month at a sporting dinner where he spoke for forty five minutes. He gave me his autograph for my boy.

He was amusing and did a good job. His best line was about Jimmy Case. He was explaining what a hard bastard Case was and said his face was all gnarly and covered in warts etc. He said he hit a football at his face once and it got stuck.

Get well soon Jimmy.

What a record

Quote:
Greaves scored 266 goals in 379 matches for Tottenham, with whom he collected two FA Cup winners medals in 1962 and 1967. He was also part of their side that lifted the European Cup-Winners’ Cup in 1963.

During his international career he scored 44 goals in 57 appearances and was part of the England squad which won the World Cup on home soil in 1966.
Get well soon Jimmy

Checked this its 57 games in which he scored 44 goals with a record of 6 hat tricks , something like the 4th highest scorer for England. Began his career as a teenager in 59 and retired in 67. He fell victim to injury in the World Cup of 66 when Hurst came in and scored despite being fit he missed the final. It really also ended his International career playing only 3 times more. Until then he was the number one choice.
He was not though an Alf Ramsey favourite and retired himself in 1967 refusing to be a fringe player. I think its also fair to say Jimmy was not a big fan of Ramsey.
In his prime he was one of the great natural goal scorers with a few other Law Charles Baker led a move to Italy driven by the wages then on offer. Soon though was back in England and Spurs having failed to settle and the abolition of the max wage in England. His record Chelsea as a teenager young striker 124 goals in 157 appearences 9 goals in 12 games in Italy for Milan. Then 220 in 321 games for Spurs. In my early years of following football I cannot think over ten years a more prolific striker.
He was not a Pele or Eusebio because of the failure injury in that 66 World Cup. But remember also he played in the 62 World Cup in four games and scored only once. Best remembered for his capture of a dog than his goal scoring from that competition.
From my perspective a great player his career for Spurs finished on the pitch at Selhurst in the 1-0 Cup victory over Spurs he never played for them again.
He was though without doubt a great character TV with Ian St John and then the after dinner speeches which I saw him on a great entertaining and insightful speech particularly regarding England and Bobby Moore.
Your probably right in differing circumstances and a differing manager he may of been more Internationally known but within England he was always a star throughout the late 50's and through the whole of the 60's

I first watched Jimmy playing for Chelsea when they had a fantastic youth side when he along with players like Peter Brabrook David Cliss (who was the star man at a young age). Greaves went on to be a superstar and must have been gutted when he lost out to Roger Hunt in 1966.

Soon after he returned from Italy and Joined Spurs he lost a youngster to cot death.

How he would get on in today's game I am not sure .. not a grafter but a great player.

Going back to Brabrook who spent most of his career at West Ham,one of my mates playing for Palace against him was asked the question about facing Brabrook and said have you tried marking an express train.

Come on Jim another victory is needed.

Great player and so good on the ball, like Don Rogers, but a more prolific goal scorer.

Wasn't he the first million pound player?

44 goals in 57 international appearances.
