Read a book about Shankly last year, what a character! R.I.P.
Not just a character, I'd say almost God-like when you see pictures like those of Him standing by Lime Street with all the fans behind him or him walking round the Kop with the League Championship trophy and the fans mobbing him.
HScRed1's sig is absolutely right about the man!
"The socialism I believe in is everybody working for the same goal and everybody having a share in the rewards. That's how I see football, that's how I see life."
Bill Shankly didn't just invigorate a football club he invigorated a whole city.
