A goalscoring legend. One of the game's great characters. A man who faced down the demons. A top television pundit and columnist. This is the story of James Peter "Jimmy" Greaves, one of the all-time greats of English football.
Jimmy Greaves was born in east London in February 1940, and from humble beginnings began to rise to the top of the game. He scored on his Chelsea debut, aged seventeen, and became the first player to score 100 goals before the age of twenty-one.
'Greavsie' is a gripping and truthful autobiography, the story of a remarkable life laced with Jimmy's trademark wit. It is a fascinating account of the golden era of football, the characters who populated it, and the goalscoring machine at the centre of it all.
