Jimmy Greaves has better scoring record than Ronaldo & Messi

Started by the wes,

For now... in 4 years time probably not. He is one of the greatest English player though.

You think either will catch up him? I honestly doubt it. Messi is over 100 goals away and Ronaldo is 30 this season.

Of course, the records can't be compared because of the completely different eras, though...

Greavsie is the best forward England have produced since the second world war. I only saw him play for West Ham right at the end of his career but if you look at old clips of him for Spurs and England he was something special. If only Chelsea could have kept him.

ON THIS DAY IN 1960: 20-YEAR-OLD JIMMY GREAVES BECOMES YOUNGEST PLAYER TO SCORE 100 LEAGUE GOALS

Spending the whole of his career to that date playing for a relegation calibre team I might add. Simply the best - by a mile.

One of the greatest of any nationality.

First of all, congratulations to Ronaldo. Those are remarkable numbers.

It's a shame for Jimmy that he ruined himself with alcohol. As early as 1961 he was hitting the bottle to a degree which damaged his fitness. There's a story told of his time at Spurs when a teammate complained to Bill Nicholson that Greaves was, "Standing around on the half way line doing nothing again." The Spurs manager replied, "Yes, and when you score 40 goals a season you can go and stand there with him!"

The truth hidden by that anecdote, is that Jimmy couldn't have worked harder even if it was his inclination. The booze sapped away his fitness and his record, as amazing as it is, does not do justice to his talent.

Something else to remember about Renaldo's record compared to Greavsie's is the fact that when the Madrid striker broke Jimmy's record, he was already a year older (32) than the age at which Greaves retired (31).

It was sixty years ago yesterday that the greatest footballer ever to grace this club was given his first team debut. Seventeen year old Jimmy Greaves made his first appearance away at White Hart Lane against Spurs. He scored of course.

Here is a nice article from TOCWS.
