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!"
