      Joe Fagan: 100th birthday
      Mar 12, 2021 09:27:39 am
      Today would have been Joe Fagans 100th birthday.

      Joe will be best remembered for leading the club to the treble of league, European cup and league cup in 1984, his first seadon as boss.

      Sadly his second season would be his last as Heysel was too much for him.

      He joined the club in 1958 working on the coaching staff and under Shanks took the reserve team. And remained a vital component under shanks and then Bob before taking charge himself.

      A born and bred scouser. Another humble nan who achieved brilliance.

      Happy 100th birthday club legend Joe Fagan

      Considering he was literally what we would call a caretaker manager,  what a first season winning the treble.
