90th anniversary of a legend

Today marks what would have been the 90th birthday of Liverpool’s most successful manager and one of the most well decorated football managers to have ever graced the game.

After Bill Shankly’s surprise retirement, it was Bob Paisley OBE who made the first step up from the boot room in what would help Liverpool dominate English football for the next two decades.

His 9 seasons in charge brought 6 titles, 3 European Cups, 1 UEFA Cup, 3 League Cups, 5 Community Shields and a UEFA Super Cup. 19 trophies in 9 years.

Sir Bob, as he rightly deserved but was never awarded, is never far from discussions on the world’s greatest managers and only last year Liverpool supporters raised funds and helped unveil a commemorative plaque in the town of his birth in Hetton-le-Hole.

YNWA ‘Sir’ Bob.

  1. Sir Bob was the greatest manager ever, and also a wonderful gentleman, we really had the GLORY years with Bob, there will never be another like him, much loved and highly respected, what would he make of the carry on now? I dread to think….. God bless Bob and thank you for all those fantastic games and Trophies xxxxxxxxxxxx

  2. A Legend if ever there was one.

    Bob, you will always be number one in my eyes. I saw the best of you and Liverpool in the late 70’s early 80’s and they were awesome days that I will remember for ever.

    Bob, you were a winner and a gentleman at that.

    God rest your soul.
