Wasn't sure where to post this but it's a cracker that some of you may have heard before. I got this from a former Rangers player I met this summer.;


To set the scene, Shanks is giving his team speach just prior to kick off in Liverpools dressing room at Old Trafford before playing United.......


Shanks proceeds to go through the whole United team one by one and tell his players their opponents weaknesses. He starts with Alex Stepney saying " he's useless going to his right and very weak on crosses and corner kicks." Shanks proceeds with players like Crerrand "no left foot" and on and on he goes right through the team.....

As he finishes, a young and naive Emyln Hughes realizes Shanks has only spoke about eight players and remarks.." Hey boss, what about Best, Law and Charlton"..

To which Shanks replies.."If yea cann eh beat three men, what kind of team are you.."

MAGIC... :D

Cheers

I guess the one that comes right to my mind was his famous quote:

"...if you're not interfering with play you shouldn't be on the pitch"

Daz :D

when shanks met ron yeats for the first time he sent him back to the dressing room and told him to wear red shorts socks and shirt and when he came back he said it made him look "7 feet tall , a colossus so thats our new kit from now on" so they switched from red and white to all red supposed to be a true story

"If you're in the penalty area and aren't quite sure what to do with the ball, stick it in the net and we'll discuss your options afterwards!" --Bill Shankly

Here's some more famous quotes from Bill Shankley :

" Referees know the laws but they don't know the game "

" There's 2 teams in Liverpool...Liverpool & Liverpool reserves "

In the dressing room after a particular game , Ray Clemence was appologising to the team for letting in a goal through his legs...
" Sorry lads " says Ray " I should have kept my legs closed "

To which Shankley replies " if your mother had done that we wouldn't be in this mess ! "
