FROM THE SUMMER OF '62. FROM THE SECOND DIVISION. ONE MAN'S VISION TO REBUILD LIVERPOOL FC...WE THINK we have learned all we can about the one and only Bill Shankly. His famous quotes live long in the memory. His autobiography, penned after he had dramatically called time on his Anfield reign, gives us a real insight into the passions that motivated this remarkable football man. Now comes a new discovery from deep within the archives of the Liverpool Echo newspaper. Shankly rarely gave in-depth interviews to journalists, but in the summer of 1962, the time was right to speak his mind. Liverpool had just finished as champions, achieving promotion from the Second Division and Shankly was looking forward, full of confidence, clear about the next step in a rebuilding job that would restore the sleeping giant of Liverpool Football Club back to the summit of English football within two years. Over the course of a tortuous football-free few months, he agreed to a series of in-depth personal columns revealing his innermost thoughts on the great Anfield masterplan. This is the real Shankly talking to you once more. Published again for the first time in 50 years.
A rare find and a must read for every Liverpool fan.
