Tottenham Hotspur Message Board
Just found this on another site and I thought I'd put it on here. Especially those who were unfortunate not to have seen him play. Bit choppy and some repeats but some idea of how balanced and controlled he was. Scored with left foot, right foot and head, brilliant player would love him in the current team!!!
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'

It's, Derek, you're talking about a real legend and a man who displayed the art of goal scoring and the supreme confidence of one's own ability. Gazza possessed some of his traits apart from not hitting the onion bag anywhere near as often. Jimmy Greaves and Gazza in their prime, 2 of Spurs greatest, and apart from their personal acclaim they both loved the club.
H---up north but looking down south and smiling.
