      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.

      The socialist ideology Shanks brought into the club, got everyone singing from the same song sheet.
      It generated a fanatical fervour of support not seen anywhere before or since.  It's that togetherness coupled with his individual genius and man management which eventually overcame all obstacles.
      There wasn't a club in the world at the time who wouldn't have swapped their manager for him.
      Unforgettable, irreplaceable.

      I doubt he is resting in peace he would be furious to see how his club has developed and how football in general has been taken away from the ordinary working man and his family.

      I lost my wedding photos in the crush in Castle Street.

      She has never forgiven me.


      Mr Shankly- what a man. The greatest motivator of players I've ever seen.

      I was in Lime Street on the Sunday they brought the CUP home,I had my lad who was 3 on my shoulders and the CITY OF LIVERPOOL was so alive.I was also at Anfield for the Inter Milan match and it was electric.Do you remember the raffles the club ran for the semi final against Chelsea,I was one of the lucky 10 winners and that was also a day (and night) to remember.

      Can't believe it's been that long since my hero passed, loved the man and everything he stood for, my old grandad was exactly the same, he believed in the same socialist views that everyone working together would achieve more, no bullshit, told you how it was, honesty, loyalty, like my grandad I wish I knew him better, I wish I could have shared a beer or two with him and absorb his wisdom,

      They broke the mould when Bill Shankly was born. What a man, what a legend and a absolute Gentleman.

      God Bless you Bill Shankly, RIP

      YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE

      Just re read your opening post September last year on this thread saying "How we could do with him now".

      I think your prayers were answered Debs .

      I am sure that Shanks would be proud of Jürgen  ...... making the people happy.

      Question: the statue of Shankly, was it paid for by the club or Carlsberg?...trying to find the article in which it was written that Carlsberg paid for it...

      Edit: found it...

      Pretty bold statement, but one I agree with.
      Affable in public, but has a real ruthless streak, and always ready with a quip and a grin.
      Gotta love Klopp.

      Great news. BBC to screen football documentary that isn't about Phil Neville's kinky obsession with turnips or whatever pathetic excuse they can find to screen something Manc related.

      There was Bill Shankly, the Kop chorus, a pulsating Anfield and success guaranteed,  Seems light years away.
