"For me Bob was the best manager of all time. His record speaks for itself. I have been a life-long follower of Liverpool, and am probably a bit biased! I do get slightly cheesed off with the idea that the current manager of Salford plc is not only his equal, but better! Shanks was in a different category, having rebuilt Liverpool and putting into place a winning philosophy and infrastructure which forms the basis of the "Liverpool ethic", and from which future success would flow."
