Fairly articulate mind, and a form studying opportunity awaits: "Greaves was due to be inducted to Tottenham’s hall of fame last May, but the event was postponed due to his health. The ceremony will now take place on April 20th, alongside fellow icon Steve Perryman."




Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.maryport2if5.jpg

Oh, right, so we're down to spotting him out on wheels with his sons, then.

 

Either way, he's still talking a good fight.

We are visiting Jimmy at the weekend . If you tweet or message for him I will show him on Saturday. He's still fighting but it's over a year since the stroke and he's not really any better despite his and our best efforts. We love him and we know so many of you do. Thanks for the messages of goodwill for him

Sounds grim.I wonder if the footage of him from Alfie`s Boys was pre-recorded.He had no difficulty speaking at all which I assume is not the case since his stroke.

Former Spurs stalwart, and Greaves mucker whilst at Chelsea, johnny Brooks dead at 84


http://www.tottenham...-brooks-080616/


Hopefully reminds him of his mortality.
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?


So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again.
The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older,
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.
