    Quiet Genius: Bob Paisley, British Football's Greatest Manager By Ian Herbert Bob Paisley was the quiet man in the flat cap who swept all domestic and European opposition aside and produced arguably the greatest club team that Britain has ever known The man whose Liverpool team won trophies at a rate per season that dwarfs Sir Alex Ferguson s achievements at Manchester United and who remains the only Briton to lead a team to three European Cups.FroBob Paisley was the quiet man in the flat cap who swept all domestic and European opposition aside and produced arguably the greatest club team that Britain has ever known The man whose Liverpool team won trophies at a rate per season that dwarfs Sir Alex Ferguson s achievements at Manchester United and who remains the only Briton to lead a team to three European Cups.From Wembley to Rome, Manchester to Madrid, Paisley s team was the one no one could touch Working in a city which was on its knees, in deep post industrial decline, still tainted by the 1981 Toxteth riots and in a state of open warfare with Margaret Thatcher, he delivered a golden era never re attained since which made the city of Liverpool synonymous with success and won them supporters the world over Yet, thirty years since Paisley died, the life and times of this shrewd, intelligent, visionary, modest football man have still never been fully explored and explained.Based on in depth interviews with Paisley s family and many of the players whom he led to an extraordinary haul of honours between 1974 and 1983, Quiet Genius is the first biography to examine in depth the secrets of Paisley s success It inspects his man management strategies, his extraordinary eye for a good player, his uncanny ability to diagnose injuries in his own players and the opposition, and the wicked sense of humour which endeared him to so many It explores the North East mining community roots which he cherished, and considers his visionary outlook on the way the game would develop.Quiet Genius is the story of how one modest man accomplished than any other football manager, found his attributes largely unrecorded and undervalued and, in keeping with the gentler ways of his generation, did not seem to mind It reveals an individual who seemed out of keeping with the brash, celebrity sport football was becoming, and who succeeded on his own terms Three decades on from his death, it is a football story that demands to be told.

    • How times have changed If a fabulously successful manager of one of Europe s top clubs were to leave at the end of the season, who would replace them Chances are it would be someone who had experience at another of Europe s top clubs It is likely they would have a big reputation and an ego to match They would be skilled at dealing with the media They are unlikely to be an existing member of the backroom staff, with experience as a physio but not as a manager, with a habit of wearing his slippers [...]


    • Great biography but a few strange errors that were so obvious it makes you wonder what else was wrong Opening page apparently Ray Kennedy scores against Bayern with his left foot and on pg 151 Neal scores the penalty in the 77 European Cup final by putting it to the left from the goalkeepers perspective No Kennedy scores with his right and Neal puts it to the keeper s right Then Paisley is described as standing top left in the milk cup picture The actual picture is included and he is top right W [...]
