Probly the most succsessful manager ever
Shanks lay the foundations for Bob Paisley's success. It is probably unlikely that Shank's would have achieved the success that Paisley did. Shank's was right for his time and Paisley was for his. My memories of Bob will always be of him sprinting onto the field in his old fashioned tracksuit bottoms with his sponge. A great manager who should have been knighted!
"SIR Bob Paisley"
LIVING IN ADELAIDE, AUSTRALIA, I CANNOT EXPERIENCE FIRST HAND OF THE SUCCESS OF BOB PAISLEY. I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO SEE LIVERPOOL PLAY TWICE IN 1974/75 SEASON. THEY WON BOTH MATCHES, 2-0? AGAINST LUTON AT ANFIELD AND 2-0 WITH SPURS AT WHITE HART LANE. FROM AUSTRALIA WE KNEW WHAT A GREAT JOB BOB DID AND PROVED THAT HIS TEAM WAS THE BEST OF THE BEST TO EVER PLAY OUR GREAT GAME. I HAVE A VIDEO OF THE FIRST HUNDRED YEARS OF FOOTBALL AND THE LAST HALF HOUR IS MANY ON LIVERPOOL AND ESPECIALLY THE PAISLEY ERA. THE BEST FOOTBALL EVER PLAYED. GREAT GUY AND HIS MEMORIES WILL LIVE ON FOR EVER AND EVER, THANKS BOB.
I have no memories as such,but the mans record speaks for itself,as against "sir" alex fergusons'!?
Without doubt the greatest manager ever because of what he won.
Also unlike some managers of other clubs today he was a gentleman who on the rare occasion Liverpool lost he would be gracious in defeat.
I met him and spoke to him once in the late John Smith's room at Anfield .I got invited in because My friend was the stepson of the Southampton chairman.I was left on my own and suddenly I spotted an old fellow with a jumper underneath his suit all on his own.I went over to him and said hello and I he talked to me about Liverpool FC. as if he had known me for years.What a lovely man and how disgusting that he never received a knighthood for his acheivements.
Put ye knighthood where the sun dont shine. The footbaling world knows Bob Paiseley was "The Man
A true working class hero. A humble colossus. In an era of real men he was head and shoulders above the rest.
MR Paisley kicked the
door open and all the Liverpool Legends have followed ever since.......he was the king in Europe and in England..the best!
it should be lord paisley not sir
Bob Paisley had everything that the game is now lacking. Class and Integrity amongst managers and basic humility which has now been lost to the game.
He will forever be remembered and honoured by the people who really matter.
His like will never be seen again,unfortunately.
he was a lefal manager just like rafiel benitez he was cool and he could do anything he wanted one of the best manager well ever see in a long time
Bob Paisley is a legend and it should be SIR Bob Paisley, come on the powers that be.
What a legend, A true football fan who di what he did better than any other manager could ever do
Modesty and self effacement do not hide his genius. Sometimes the things you do not do are more important than the things you do.
My home was on the opposite side of the road from Bob's in a cul de sac in Woolton.
I well remember the day he was promoted to manager, some friends were wondering how he would get on in the job. My father had always maintained that Bob had masterminded behind all of Bill Shankly's succeses. I told them what he had said. When some of them stopped sniggering I said don't worry from what I've seen of Bob I'm convinced he will be the best manager ever. History speaks for itself.
Great man and this from a Everton supporter. John Lennon airport my goodnes what a insult to great men like Bob.
leaves all others in his wake...rip sir bob
What can you say...! Just look at his record....It t ells you everything..!
without doubt the greatest.. and at a time when money had know relevance in the game,and creating a team from scratch
Modern awards are handed out like toffees. Let's just remember the greatest manager in British Club football for his three Eurpopean cups. A modern day knighthood wouldn't do his achievements justice.
i was b p gardener towards the end as jessie was recovering after being in hospital +bp would wander and chat +i found bp abrill man +humours at times . he thought it amusing me telling him how great he was and telling him im a everton fan . he still spoke to me afterwards .so he forgave. he never saw himself as a great man . he just talked with passion for sport +football all teams not just l.pool.
We shouldn't worry about Bob being knighted. He was always a humble man, proud to be one of the people. A working class hero not an aristocrat.
He should be given a posthumous knighthood.
How Bob Paisley was never knighted is an absolute disgrace. The best manager in British Football history. He has the respect of the football world now it's time he was respected by the powers that be, even though it is too late.
steve chorley u. s. a.
when you compare the achievements of bob paisley to alex ferguson who should really be the sir.
As a blue, I have to say that the man was a huge figure in football, and it is a disgrace that his achievements have never formerly been recognised. We gave the cricket team honours for winning a single ashes series...
the greatest manager of all time.with the greatest club team of all time.should be knighted
