Gabriel, Jimmy As an Evertonian, Jimmy was and still is my most favourite footballer ever. He was the player I wanted to be, he had the ability to take the game by the scruff of the neck and change it. Rest in peace big man, you gave me so much pleasure.

Gabriel, Jimmy Remember the lovely times Jimmy, WIFE Pat, and I used to go to the top Rank every Thursday with Ann Magrath and Sylvia Davis. Larry my ex used be at Jimmy's waiting for us. We used to have a laugh
The good old days.

Gabriel, Jimmy I remember JImmy playing for Southampton,although mainly a midfield player,I saw him turn out in every position except goalkeeper! He could be trusted to give an exceptional performance no matter where he was asked to play. He was without a doubt the most complete all round player I have ever seen in my almost 70 years of following football.Marvellous memories of a truly great player.
