What would the late, great Bill Shankly have made of the current Liverpool side? There’s a great deal he would have hated about the modern game, but there’s a lot about today’s Liverpool he would have liked. With Jürgen Klopp instilling a team ethic and re-engaging the fans, the Reds have restored something of ‘Shanks’s Holy Trinity’ - that union between players, manager and supporters - at least as much as a 21st-century conglomerate will allow. Although he grew up as a socialist during the Great Depression, Shanks was never shy to spend big and used methods ahead of his time. Shanks, Yanks and Jürgen shows how the values he acquired from his pit-village background formed key elements of the Liverpool way. When wounded by tragedies and tricked by con men, the club briefly lost direction. Recovery was started by Liverpool’s astute new owners and completed by an inspirational manager, but also by returning to aspects of Shankly’s template - albeit in a modern context. Bob Holmes explains how Shanks’s philosophies still resonate today.
