Detailed manager profiles with transfers, articles, quotes and the works

Similar to player archive on LFChistory, we have opened a manager archive. Click a manager's name, Shankly and the ones following him, and you will get a detailed profile written mostly by Chris Wood (c[email protected]), a list of the players the managers bought and sold, a stats overview of wins, draws and losses in each competition and a selection of quotes and articles.

Let's look at Bob Paisley as an example. You will get 7 articles, including his unique opinions on Wark, Johnston, Mølby and Dalglish (more on the way) and 13 quotes amongst them this priceless one from 1950:

“Though I hope to have a few more seasons still in senior football, I am studying to be a physiotherapist and masseur when my playing days are over. We married men have to look to the future, you know.”

You will see Paisley bought 24 players and sold 40 and boasts a 57.38% winning record in his 535 games as Liverpool manager.

We include a profile of every manager before Shankly as well and we WILL add to them in near future, but the further you go back the more difficult to get details about their careers.

Keep your eyes open for interesting articles that will be published in the manager archive. We aren't done yet!
