Lmfao Nearly spat my pop oot...Big Grin

Bob Paisley was at Liverpool football club as a player, physiotherapist and then Assistant Manager to the great Bill Shankly for 35 years, before taking over as manager of the club in 1974.

Shankly, as we all know, got Liverpool promoted from the second division in 1962 and really built the Liverpool club, as we know it today – full of pride and passion. When Bill surprisingly resigned in 1974 Bob Paisley took over.

Here was a man, very much like Chris Hughton at Newcastle today, who had always worked in the background, so nobody was quite sure how he would do, and of course he was taking over from a Liverpool icon in Bill Shankly. And how did he do? In short, he did fabulously well and ended up with a better record than even that of the great Shankly.
