Paisley Flag

This fantastic Paisley flag was premiered on the Kop in the game vs Fulham on 22nd of November 2008. The picture above is from Liverpool - Marseille in the Champions League, which followed the Fulham game.

The flag was organised and funded by the forumites on www.onthekop.com. Dave (Souey's tache), member of the OTK donated his painting to be used.

A superb "monument" to the great man on the Kop!

Sir Bob quote

"I'm always amused how little people appreciate just how revolutionary a management Bob Paisley was! To dispense with the old fashioned centre-half (a position that had dominated English defending for 40 years), to build his central defensive partnerships around two wing-halves (Thompson, Smith, Hughes, Lawrenson, Hansen), and to have entrusted the mid-field screening job to a passer of the ball like Souness was a masterstroke!

It is a sad loss to the game that Bob didn't reveal his thoughts on the game to all and sundry. If only this man had been more vocal, he would have set in train a tactical revolution that would still influence the English game today! At a time when the English national side couldn't punch its weight internationally, and English self-esteem was at its lowest ebb, Bob Paisley managed to win three European Cups! That's greatness!"
