Jimmy is one of the greatest footballers that England have ever produced. Greavsie, is one of the all time greats. A nice man, great tv personality and he had the great determination to fight his alcoholic addiction. I only wish he had played for my team Arsenal.
Best wishes to Jimmy, There will never be another goalscorer quite as good as him
The politicians and F.A should give him some recognition of his contribution to football.

He was one of the most prolific goal-scorers in British football and should be recognised.

Jimmy was a fantastic footballer and a gentleman on and off the pitch. I've often wondered why he hasn't been knighted...so do it now!

Jimmy Greaves is the best footballer this country has ever seen. It is astonishing after all this years that this legend has not received an honour for this. Arise Sir Jimmy...

I have followed him all my life since seeing him on the news going to Italy. As a young teenager I started my interest and that has never stopped. I along with him resented the 1966 team choice. No need for extra time if he had been on the pitch.

He was such a great player. I remember standing on the terraces at the Lane as a young lad and feeling this buzz from the crowd whenever Jimmy got the ball. Never experienced the like since. Thanks for such great memories Jimmy
