Diplomacy is the ability to tell a man to go to hell so that he looks forward to making the trip

Ouch - I hadn't realised he'd had a stroke. How sad :cry:

I BELIEVED It's still coming home. Just not quite sure when.

Yes,sad to see him like this.
A great goal poacher for Spurs and England and his TV programme "Saint and Greavesie" was legendary !

He might not have held the outright England goal record, but 44 goals in 57 games says it all - Spurs record goal scorer as well (220 in 321 appearances) and for Chelsea an amazing 124 goals in 157 appearances - a goal scoring legend.

Now the real Jimmy Greaves shows he was born 20 February 1940, so maybe it's his alias whose birthday we should be raising our glasses to?
:cheers:
