      Bob Paisley

      Happy birthday Bob,

      Bob Paisley our most successful manager would have been 100 yrs old today, this man served LFC as a player, Physiotherapist,  trainer, and manager,

      Bill Shankly built the foundations and Bob took over the helm when Bill resigned in 1974 although he was reluctant to do so,

      In his tenure Bob won 6 league titles, 3 European cups,  1 Uefa cup, 1 Uefa super cup, 3 league cups, and 6 charity shields,

      20 trophies in 9 years as manager,  in his first season as gaffer he finished second and until 1981 Liverpool FC under Bob never finished lower than runners up  in the league.

      The Man was a complete genius, and yet so humble,  they don't ' Makem' like Bob anymore.

      HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOB

      Most successful manager ever, year for year.
      No other manager can match what he won, over a similar period of time.
      I recall in a pressie, he said,
      “There have been times when we’ve struggled as well. We came second once”
      Or words to that effect. The interviewer was just stunned 😂

      The greatest tactician, the best "reader" of a game of football. The best judge of a players capabilities and positions. He understood the physics of football more than any other. The most modest man in football. Simply the best football manager year for year, man for man EVER.

      I liked Bob as a player (left half in old money) and I liked him as a physio and trainer.I still recall Bob running on to the pitch with his bucket and sponge to treat an injured player (no fancy gadgets in those days)There is not a manager who could come anywhere near Bob for his loyalty and achievements with L.F.C. Happy Birthday Bob and rest assured number 19 is on it's way back to Anfield.

      Well remembered by all who were alive in those great days. Used to talk to him regularly when he went into my mates garage every morning to pick his horses  for the day. Lovely man, and a treat to talk to. Thanks for everything you did for the Reds, Bob.

      Why have the club not commissioned a statue of Paisley alongside Shankly?..

      I know the Shankly statue was commissioned & financed by then club sponsors Carlsberg...Maybe it a finance issue or image rights etc etc..

      I’ll ask the question.
