Meath Live is sad to record the passing of arguably the greatest goalscorer ever to grace English football.

Jimmy Greaves, who passed away today, was not a scorer of great goals, but he was a great goalscorer.

If you doubt it then glance at the video below and prepare to have your mind changed.

After his playing days and following a successful battle against alcoholism, Greaves reinvented himself as the co-host of Saturday’s lunchtime football show, The Saint and Greavsie, alongside Ian St John.

They’ll have some strike force up there now as another ace attacker, Germany’s Gerd Muller, passed away recently.

For those of you who think football began with the Premier League in 1992, Greaves proves otherwise
