Can long lost birthplace of Bill Shankly be revived?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-35659252

Professor Russel Griggs, chairman of the SMRT, said: "We have people who come from all over the world to Spireslack.
"One geologist told me it's as internationally important as the Large Hadron Collider at CERN is to the particle physics community."

One of the better summaries I have had to write over the past decade and a bit (one of my clients takes Hadron Collider mentions). As a physics fan, that geologist is not wrong...

I remember he huge disappointment when we first paid it a visit not knowing beforehand that it no longer existed.

This sounds like superb news.

I'll definitely be giving the programme a watch tomorrow.

Here you are folks for the radio documentary Cradle of Football. Fascinating it is too.

A superb memorial to Shankly. If I'm passing through that area I'll certainly pay a visit.

It's great to see the achievements listed on the memorial - these are all trophies won for the Reds.... I think one his greatest achievements however, was not silverware, but that he gave a football club, and a while city, belief again and he set the scene for a dynasty of dedicated folk (Paisley, Fagan, Evans et al) who have created the greatest football club on earth. Thanks Bill
