Ed001 sad news about Jimmy Greaves England's greatest ever goal scorer arguably the greatest player ever. Was the only player Shanks use to change his tactics for because he was that good.
God knows what his goal record would be in today's game playing on the pitches and the rule changes would love to see what Ronaldo and Messi would do back then they would be lucky if there goal record was half of what it is now.

{Ed001's Note - I don't think anyone would have ever argued Greaves was England's greatest player ever, he wasn't even the greatest in his era. A brilliant goalscorer though. For me though, it is his personality that is going to be most missed. Saint and Greavsie was essential watching as a kid.}

I wish I’d seen him play.
His goal record is amazing.
A lad in the office, 10 years older than me, always said that Jimmy Greaves was the best striker that Britain has ever had.
He looked sharper and more mobile than Kane.
He seemed a great guy too, you’re right there Ed.
Legend for sure. RIP Greavsie.

I was very fortunate to grow up watching players like Greaves, Stjohn, Best, Law etc. Different generation of players performing on what today would be called Sunday park pitches. My dad took me to lots of games and he always said Greaves was one of the greatest strikers he ever saw play, with the exception of Duncan Edwards who sadly never reached his potential.
RIP Greavsie.

In my younger days you had Greaves and Law, you either supported Greaves, or Law, but never both. My favourite player was Greaves.

{Ed0666's Note - I never got to watch him play unfortunately but jeez Louise he was special on Saint & Greavsie. What a show that was. Easily the best football show ever. And a lot of the success of the programme was down to the off the cuff hunour of the late great James Greaves. RIP.

Just have a look at the goals he used to score. He was no tap in merchant, he had pace, skill, technique and a hell of a shot on him. True legend of the game and I’ll always fondly remember Saint and Greavsie. Far better than rubbish like Soccer AM.

As Ed0666 said S&G the best football show EVER.

I just tried to explain to the wife about Saint and Hreeves on Saturday TV… I loved it. they were like a comedy act but talking football.
If only we could have something like that again.
As others said I too never got to see him play live… but he wa an out an out goal scorer…

RIP Jimmy a comedy / football genius.
