Jimmy Greaves Update

Former Hammer Jimmy Greaves remains in hospital but his condition is not related to the current global health situation or his previous stroke.

Speaking on his official JimmyGreaves.Net his agent said: “I did promise a statement mid morning today when I posted a statement last night . All I can say is no news is good news at the moment. Jimmy has spoken to Irene by phone. During the course of the day he will be having tests and when we find out any news I will post it on here. So watch this space and have a good thought for Jimmy as you go about your current daily routine. His problem isn’t virus related and doesn’t seem to be related to his previous illness. Hopefully he won’t be in hospital for too long. Thanks for the 1000s of you showing concern. England’s greatest ever goalscorer is still with us and here’s hoping he’s home soon”

Greaves suffered a serious stroke in 2015 and was confined to a wheelchair but it appears he is undergoing tests and is likely to return home.

Claret and Hugh say:

In a time of global bad news it good to hear some positive news that 80-year-old Greavesy is not suffering from the virus or another stroke.  I am sure we all feared the worst when we heard he was admitted to hospital last night but he is a fighter and appears to be undergoing tests for an unspecified illness. If this statement is anything to go by Jimmy could be home soon with his family social distancing like the rest of us. Good luck Jimmy!

  1. I saw my very first match at Upton Park way back on 28th Mstch 1970 which just happened to be Jimmy’s home debut ! We beat Liverpool 1-nil thanks to a goal from Patsy Holland. I can still remember the match as though it was yesterday !
    Wishing him a speedy recovery of course.

  2. I saw his first game for us at Main Road two chances two goals
    What on earth would he be worth now

  3. Jimmy Greaves = the greatest ever English forward (even if he did play for the Spuds)!

  4. Same as Stephen says about the game and wishing the great goal poacher all the best whtid.

  5. I have his Autobiography (2003) that my dad just gave to me. He knew him when we lived in Upminster. I’ve only leafed through it for now.

    Of his decision to move to West Ham (with Martin Peters going the other way to Spurs): “It is also one I have regretted ever since”

    On training: “I found training at West Ham and the general running of team affairs to be lax, at times disorganised and occasionally shambolic. Fertile ground for a disenchated footballer who had begun to drink more heavily that was good for him” <—probably why he knew my dad 🙂

    It is signed:

    "Be Lucky! – Jimmy Greaves"
