Shankly: From Glenbuck To Wembley

Phil Thompson, Steve Hale

Regular price £12.99

Tax included.

From the publisher:

Bill Shankly is the man who shaped Liverpool Football Club. His legendary status on Merseyside and within the history of the game cannot be overestimated. Renowned for his commitment, restless energy and laconic aphorisms, he followed a respectable career as a player with an incredible one as a manager.

Having been in charge at Carlisle, Grimsby, Workington and swiftly Huddersfield, he arrived at a struggling Liverpool in 1959 and transformed the club into one of the most successful in British football. This, together with the force of his incredible personality, ensured Bill Shankly would be remembered forever as one of the all-time great figures in football. With superb photography from sports photographer Steve Hale, prolific Merseyside writer Phil Thompson records Shankly’s life in this delightful biography – from his birth in Glenbuck to the glory days when Shankly laid the foundations for Liverpool’s rise to domination of the domestic and European football scene.

From the author:

Merseyside writer Phil Thompson has written many football books for many publishers, is a life-long fan of the Reds and lives in Liverpool. His previous books for Tempus include the Shankly: From Glenbuck to Wembley and Liverpool: The Trophy Years.
