With a documentary film on Jimmy Greaves' life being broadcast next week by BT Sports the Mail has started a campaign to get Jimmy Knighted.

With scoring record in Europe's top leagues that is only surpassed by Cristiano Ronaldo it is amazing that he has not been recognised already when many of his peers have.

I have been told the documentary is wonderful and has tributes from the best in the game. I am lucky enough to be going to a friends and family viewing this Thursday so I will rate in the film thread ahead of its release next week.
In the past Jimmy hasn't been to bothered about a knighthood but I am reliably told he would be very happy to accept the honour if he were to receive it.
