Fantastic player with a quick mind.
My Stoke City hero. Like so many I was devastated when he had to leave us. Englands greatest uncapped player.
Great player - makes me smile thinking of him playing for united
He was lovely to watch but better to play with, absolutely delightful, yeah if only Tony Waddington had been England manager (that's the difference) he'd have lorry loads of caps, best regards Alan Hudson
Im sitting here in Wexford Ireland reminiscing and Jimmys extra time winner in the 79 FA cup semi-final against the Pool comes to mind. What a player, what a goal. Jimmy G one of the greats
We had a holiday in Great Yarmouth in 1986 and Jimmy was coaching the kids on the camp. A true gent and happy to share some of his memories over a pint. Great guy
We watched Jimmy playing for Stoke City for nearly 7 years and he was a fantastic footballer. Why he never played for England we never could understood that. It was a sad day Stoke City had to sell him to Man Utd because the wind blew off one of the stands and we had no money to repair it ! A lovely person as well.

Great player at Birmingham City . Pity he was far to fast for the rest of the team. Good luck Jimmy
In the summer of '77, I took my six-month-old son, resplendent in a red and white Babygro, to The Cliff where pre-season training had started. Jimmy was injured and on crutches. I asked him if I could take a Polaroid photo of him holding my little boy who was crying. Jimmy immediately put aside his crutches and obliged. I really appreciated that. I think my son did, too, as he stopped crying!
Forty years later I was delighted to see Jimmy at the annual dinner of the Association of Former Manchester United Players at Old Trafford and had the opportunity to thank him again and be photographed with him.
Jimmy has had more than his fair share of misfortune since he left United but he remains a true gentleman, as well as being one of the finest players never to play for the full English team. He was truly a gem.
Very sad to hear things have not been good for jimmy of late i was lucky to meet him years ago at a supporters club do an absolute gent smashing guy one of the best
I think Jimmy's first games for Blues was against PNE which I went to at DEEPDALE. We lost 4-1 but still great. Best uncapped England player by far.

Far too fast for the blues team, but great memories all the best Jimmy.
