Well - I'm going to come out and say that I'm liking what he is doing at the lane. Initially I didn't like what he was doing at all - then I got a sense of what he was trying to do and I think that he is starting to succeed. I believe he is implementing what might be considered a 'successful European style of play" - we're certainly no Barcelona, but I see him trying to implement a structure and style that is going in that direction. So as a long term investment I think he is definitely doing a good job and trying to take the club to where we need to be if we are to be a successful EPL and European Club.
He would still be of the greatest value - I was also lucky enough to see him play in the glory days. He simply scored goals - maybe he coasted through the game and then had a few moments of brilliance - but what magical moments they were!! Nothing but fond memories of Greavesy - and many more of the great Lilleywhite players from that era at the Lane. Brown Peters Henry Blanchflower Norman Mackay Jones Greaves Smith White Dyson. I was 8 when I went to my first game and while I can't remember the detaisl of the game I will never forget the magic feel!
