Sir Bob quote

"On returning to England I rang James Callaghan who was then the Prime Minister and told him that if he wanted to win the next election then he should give Bob Paisley a knighthood. Make him the King of Merseyside I said because this was the greatest moment in Liverpool Football Club's history and although they'll go on to win more European Cups this moment will never be repeated. What happened? John Smith the Chairman was knighted instead, Bob got nothing and two years later Labour were voted out in favour of the Conservatives!"

Journalist Stuart Hall after Liverpool's European Cup win in 1977
