The most emotional Bob Paisley quotes that may be undiscovered and unusual

One of the things I keep reminding players is that when you're lost in a fog, you must stick together. Then you don't get lost. If there's a secret about Liverpool, that's it.


Mind you, I've been here during the bad times too - one year we came second.


The sort of lad I am looking for is a kid who will nutmeg Kevin Keegan in training, then step aside him in the corridor


At the highest level the first two yards are in your head.

My policy is to ideally have five or six men around the age of 26, a couple of youngsters, a couple round the 28 mark and one or two in their 30s. But the nucleus of the team should be experienced and not too old.


The physio side probably stemmed from the knocks I got as a player.


No, but you've got to be here in case something does happen.
