Jimmy Greaves joined West Ham from Tottenham in March 1970 in an exchange deal which saw Martin Peters go the other way. His battles with alcohol are well documented but, in the days when a drinking culture was prevalent at a lot of clubs, Hammers' fan Vic told me of the time Jimmy and the team were up in Blackpool for a third-round FA Cup tie on January 2nd, 1971.

Believing that a frozen pitch would prevent the match from going ahead, Greaves and other members of the squad went to a nightclub the evening before and were a little worse for wear when the game was given the green light, resulting in a heavy 4-0 defeat to the seaside club in what was manager Bob Stokoe's first game in charge. The quote on the mug is Vic's favourite.

Glossy white finish 10oz mug, dishwasher and microwave-safe, looks great on any desk in any home, office, kitchen, workshop, studio, factory or garden.
