Book Description

I just hoped that after the trials and tribulations of my early years in management, someone up high would smile on me and guide my hand...

’Those were the words of Bob Paisley, the reluctant genius who was handed the unenviable task of following Bill Shankly as the manager of Liverpool Football Club.

A stunning array of nineteen trophies in nine seasons was his incredible response to accepting a job he never wanted. The most successful Liverpool manager of all time and the only British man to guide a team to three European Cups, no manager before or since has matched his remarkable achievements.

Now, 40 years on from climbing into the Anfield hotseat, comes this anniversary edition of his definitive biography, updated with newly unearthed unseen images of Paisley from the archives.

Written by trusted author John Keith, it is the only account of Paisley’s life to have been given the family’s full blessing. Keith originally wrote the best-selling life story at the turn of the Millennium and it is viewed by many as the closest fans will ever get to reading the autobiography that Paisley sadly never penned.

With reflections and reminiscences from many football legends including Kevin Keegan, Billy Liddell and Alan Hansen, ‘Bob Paisley: Smile On Me And Guide My Hand’ is the compelling story of one of the greatest managers the game has ever seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional!! 5 Aug. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What an exceptional read about an exceptional man! It is a must read for any Liverpool fan :)

I thought Mr Paisley was quite a placid manager, but this book shows how ruthless he was in his determination for LFC to become dominate in both domestic and European football.
