Great to see the re-run on BBC2 tonight of the Bill Shankly documentary.
I'm sure SoW will be drooling all over it. Laughing
Those of us of a certain age well remember the glory days of 1960's football revolving around Shankly, Stein and Busby.
God! I remember Ron Yeats playing for Dundee Utd as a young centre half when they were still in the old Second Division. And Ian St John in the Motherwell 'Ancell Babes' team in the late 50's/early 60's. Embarassed

I saw the documentary the last time it was on but have recorded it this time and will watch it this week.Shanks is and always will be not only a Liverpool legend but also a Scottish one.He is the reason Liverpool as a club have been built up over the years.My mother in law comes from the next village to where glenbuck used to be and always says they would take me to see shanks memorial but so far THEY HAVENT Confused

Another re-run of the brilliant Shankly documentary on BBC Scotland tonight from 7.30 - 9pm.
Great memories and at times emotional ones from an era in football that'll never return due to the way the top clubs and leagues are now steeped in millions.
I wonder what Shanks would have to say about the current team this season?

The Three Kings by Leo Moynihan.The makers of modern football. A Christmas present still to be devoured.

On the dust jacket:-

BUSBY: i was determined to put Manchester United at the top of the football tree.

SHANKLY: I knew the crowd was here at Liverpool and the people were just like me.

STEIN: I liked the fans here at Celtic and I was egotistical enough to think I could make a difference.

Three men born within a 30-mile radius of each other in the central lowlands of Scotland.
