Lord of the wingBy doc1234 (9 reviews) from GLASGOW , 26 Jun 2008Fantastic film about a magical footballer born in times when football riches were a pitance compared to modern times.
Jinky had the lot and would put to shame your so called wonder players being paid kings ransoms now a days for pretty much medriocracy on the pitch. (A few exceptions to the rule to be fair).
His simplistic working class nature and attitude combined with a 'well I have this illness but there are people worse of than me' ethos is an example of a person who is one in a million and thinking about him brings nothing but a smile to my face.
On the wing with a prayerBy FaTandy (2 reviews) from Mitcham , 25 Jun 2008God bless wee Jinky. The footage in the video really makes one miss the great days of football in the 60's and 70's. Mayne it's watching the wee man that makes you feel young again. What surprised me though was the grace of Jimmy in the interviews when - maybe fearing the worst for his health - he came over as being positive. He obviously took on the challenge of his condition with the way he treated the best defences in Europe. He took the challenge head on. he real surprise was just how well Jimmy came across and I loved the moment when he met up with Eusabio and his genuine admiration for a fellow footballer.
Pure magic was the wee man!
