    Memories of Jimmy Greaves...

    My first trips to the Lane were in the late 60's (67 on) when I was still a young lad. Greaves, Jones, Gilzean... and not forgetting the legend that was to become Pat Jennings good memories eh?
    The image of Greaves putting the ball in the net, with a trail of opposing players on the deck in his wake...
    Jennings catching the ball one handed and bringing it down behind his back...Stepney being bamboozled by Jennings footwork (!) and Jennings scoring....
    Jones flying down the wing...
    Gilzean, with his flowing locks, rising majestically...

    We all agree that Jennings is better than Yashin,
    Greaves is better than Eusebio,
    and Leeds are in for a thrashin'


    ...sing along....
