Description

Bill Shankly may have come from a small Scottish mining community but he epitomised The Spirit of Liverpool. He took LFC from the Second Division to top the First Division three times, winning two FA Cups, four Charity Shields and a EUFA Cup. When he joined the club in 1959 he formed an  immediate bond with the supporters saying they were “his kind of people”.

He will always be remembered for his quotes: “We had the best two teams on Merseyside – Liverpool and Liverpool reserves.”

“I was interested in only one thing, success for the club and that meant success for the people. I wanted results for the club for the love of the game to make the people happy.”

“I worked for the people of Liverpool who go to Anfield. I’d like to be recognised for trying to give them entertainment.”

His most famous quote is in fact often misquoted. Correctly it was: “Some people believe that football is a matter of life and death. I am very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it is much, much more important than that.”
