    ISJ: Welcome to another edition of Saint and Greavsie. On today's show Ronnie Whelan tells us why Kenny Dalglish is the greatest Liverpool manager ever.

    Greavsie: (says something racist about John Barnes)

    ISJ: (Laughs)Greavsie, you cracks me up.


    The football stats speak for themselves. But as a pundit and full time pisshead he rivalled Paul Merson.

    I think Colin Bell might have something to say about that.

    Yes, we all know how great Nijinsky was, but he hardly receives any recognition outside MCFC.

    Amazed how he scored those goals whilst still hungover from the night before. Surprised he’s still alive in all honesty.

    Its Guinness time any day of the week.
    I was a Spurs fan (no not a supporter) way back in 1961/62 when even my namesake Alan Oakes and slightly after my neighbour Glyn Pardoe,had just started their carers at City when I loved Jimmy in his early years at Spurs.Way back in those days the only type of true adoration for any player was via the papers.I will always remember Greavsie scoring a think it was a hat trick at White Hart Lane against the Rags in about 1963 in a 5-1 win !
    I will always remember his debut for WHU when he scored against City at Maine Road at the Platt Lane End which we eventually won 4-2 I think.
    Loved him and Ian St.John on the old ITV Saturday dinner programme when the famous saying "its a funny old game" came to light.
    City fan or not I will always remember Greavsie as one of my all time heroes and a true football legend.

    He really was EAT and he was no prima dona just a wonderful player who was adored by many true footballing fans,irrespective of who he played for.
