The Greatest: Jimmy Greaves

Posted on 17 February 2003  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

The voting is over - Jimmy Greaves is our greatest modern-day striker according to fans in the first of our new series, The Greatest.

Greaves, seen by many as the greatest striker football has seen, won the final vote against Gary Lineker with a 76-24 percentage.

We started the week with 10 Lane legends - Greaves, Lineker, Jurgen Klinsmann, Teddy Sheringham, Clive Allen, Bobby Smith, Martin Chivers, Alan Gilzean, Steve Archibald and Garth Crooks - and whittled the list down to two via daily votes.

It capped a week's vote where 10 Lane legends were eventually whittled down to the top two by daily vote

This occasional feature will give you the chance to vote for your Greatest - whether it's our Greatest striker, midfielder, goal, match, foreign signing, winger...the list is endless.

The vote will take a week and the final will be between the last two candidates remaining.

It will work like this. We will always try to list 10 candidates for any one vote and we will lose the bottom two every day, Monday-Thursday, until the last two are standing. You will then be able to vote over the weekend and we will announce the winner on the Monday.
