I miss him so much.
If he had said it's dark during the day and light at night, I'd have been going to school in the dark and going to bed at sunrise
God bless Bill
I really think that collectively we have not awoken from his spell.
We still crave him and seek him out in our manager, and in the idealised relationship with the club and our leader that we all have in our minds.
The affection and devotion that we show to Rafa is part of this. Our relationship with our boss is still shaped by the relationship we had with Shanks. We want our manager to be in his image. To inspire us and make us dream and have the same kind of swaggering wit and intelligence and messianic belief in us as a club, as fans, and as a city.
We are known as a manager's club. It might even be a weakness sometimes. But more often than not its about wanting to see the club personified in a single figure that we can show immense devotion to. And that is all because of the magic weaved by Bill Shankly. We're still living in his afterglow and he has moulded the minds of all of us, even the Liverpool fans who weren't born when he retired.
Like I said, we are still in his spell. Almost forty years have passed and we are still mesmerised by him.
