Grim Reaper

28. Jimmy Greaves

Recommended Posts

So, that's Diego Maradona, Gerd Muller and Jimmy Greaves dead within 10 months of each other, and Pele's still in and out of hospital. Quite a year for footballing deaths.

 

Rest in Peace, Greavesie.

There is some goals there, sad news a true footballing legend, surprised he lasted so long, you thought he would linger on forever. RIP To England’s greatest ever striker.

As an aside, these statistics are starting to look a bit of a pattern. Most of these 8 aren't in great shape either. RIP Greavsie.

RIP Jimmy Greaves. Very under appreciated for his football talent. Wonderful player.

RIP lad, definitely one who'll be fondly remembered for years to come. Can't help but wonder who else old Grim's got on his hit list post-drought, this could be a fairly prolific year for him yet.

2 deaths in 3 days - recompense I assume?

 

In all honesty, RIP.

He'll be playing more footy with Gordon after he's buried with them.

As a Tottenham fan I'm devastated, just woke up and saw the news. RIP Greavsie, we will never forget you.

Don't know – even Horst Eckel of the 1954 team is still alive at 89, had a serious fall in december but apparently recuperated.
