Can only echo the others, lovely read, PoP, missed those analyses.
The courts, the rich, the powerful or those in authority never lie. It has been dealt with 'by the courts' nothing to see here run along.

Fantastic read, Shankly really was ahead of his time.

I read Inverting the pyramid this summer and there's a section on the Red star Belgrade game and how they influenced Shankly.

Here's his quote in full

ďWe realised at Liverpool that you canít score a goal every time you get the ball. And we learned this from Europe, from the Latin people. When they play the ball from the back they play in little groups. The pattern of the opposition changes as they change. This leaves room for players like Ray Kennedy and Terry McDermott, who both played for Liverpool after I left, to sneak in for the final pass. So itís cat and mouse for a while waiting for an opening to appear before the final ball is let loose. Itís simple and itís effective Ö Itís also taken the spectators time to adjust to it.Ē

As a 20 year old I'm always keen to read and learn about shanks, so this was a great read, thanks again PoP.
