      As far as I'm concerned, he is to football what Gandhi is to India.

      I'd say some of the current lot could learn a few things from him. But sadly, so much of it would go straight over their heads.

      All the best Mr. Shankly.

      Apologies for the state of our Club at this moment in time.

      It'll all come good in the end.

      Growing up in Liverpool in the 60's and 70's wasn't a lot of fun but Bill Shankly made us all feel special he didnt manage just a football team he took upon himself the entire cities well being. He gave a sense of pride to everyone in the City and we all believed every single word he said because it wasnt bull sh*t it wasnt media speak it was what he believed and we all believed in him. What ever generation Bill Shankly managed in he would have been a winner. Its hard to believe its 40 years since he left the club and what a club he left and what a number two he trained in his own image. Genius of a man

      He even trained a pretty amazing number 3, in Joe Fagan.
      2 European Cup finals in 2 years as manager.

      THESE 3 and then Kenny and Rafa epitomised LFC, as far as I'm concerned.

      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.

      One of the greatest homecomings of all time was when Bill Shankly brought the F.A.CUP home to Liverpool for the first time in 1965.And what followed at Anfield on the Wednesday night against Inter Milan was out of this world.Memories of Bill and the LADs will stay with me forever.
