He looks more strong 5'7" with Rob, rather than just 5'7".

I instantly Googled him to make sure he had passed away....but he hasn't. Why is he listed at his peak height?
Editor Rob: he's more out of public eye last few years, had a bad stroke a couple of years ago.

He was usually listed at 5'8" although in a Tottenham Hotspur year book in the late sixties he was listed as 5'7.5" and he looks about half an inch shorter than Rob in that photo.

Did he mention the 9-3 win in 1961? He spoke at length about Wolves so I was happy. Ex Chelsea full back Ron 'Chopper' Harris was also at the show, he was slightly shorter than Jimmy, Harris was 5'6.5", possibly 5'7" at a stretch.....
[Editor Rob: not enough time, more celtic talk.]

Jimmy did a show at the theatre I work in, he was really good, very funny, and a nice guy too. It was fascinating for me to listen to a man talking about my favourite subject with so much knowledge about the game.....how did you find him Rob? I got to meet him up close and estimated 5'7.5". I also saw Iain St. John walking through the bar the same night, he had just met up with Jimmy for a chat on his way to another event....he was in my opinion 5'9". Any ideas what Saint was in his playing days Rob?
[Editor Rob: he was a bubbly guy, talked a little about scotland/celtic as there was hardly anybody there at that event. Used to watch saint and greavesy growing up. Not sure about St John's height.]

I heard he was 5'7.5" in his playing days an this photograph confirms that to me. He is at least an inch shorter than Rob.
