Paul Walsh has just released his autobiography that is in turn entertaining and shocking.
Bob Paisley was a great judge of players and in the 1986/87 season he looked at the players of Liverpool FC and treated us to his point of view on them.

Paul Anthony Walsh profiled in Shoot! in 1986.
"The medical facilities were unbelievable in those days. The treatment room was like a museum. I remember in the 1986 title-winning season I was going along nicely until I picked up an ankle injury against Manchester United. There’s a picture of me on my wall at home of me in the dressing room with Roy Evans dabbing my ankle with a sponge. I’ve ruptured my ligaments and I’ve got Roy giving it a dab and wiggling it about saying ‘It’ll be alright’ I was hobbling around for months.
The funny thing is, eventually this fella comes round to test the ultra-sound machine and it turns out it’s not even working. I’d been having the ultra-sound on my ankle religiously three times a day for three months and it wasn’t even working."
"For the first three years, life at Liverpool was brilliant. It didn't worry me that I was in competition for one of the striking places with Kenny Dalglish, Ian Rush, David Hodgson and Michael Robinson. I was confident in my own ability by this stage and I was absolutely flying. Unfortunately for me, the Heysel Stadium disaster came on the night when I should have been playing in the European Cup Final. Of course, 38 people lost their lives that night, so what happened to me is insignificant, but it should have been one of the highlights of my career.
In the year afterwards, I had scored 18 goals in 24 games when I was injured during a game with Manchester United at Anfield when my ankle became got caught in between Kevin Moran's legs as we challenged for a ball. I was out for seven months and, by the time I was ready again, Kenny Dalglish had bought John Barnes, Peter Beardsley and John Aldridge. I think he wanted his own men in."
Paul Walsh on his Liverpool career
"Kenny had just signed Peter Beardsley and Roy Evans came to me and asked how would I fancy playing right midfield. I said no because I wanted to play up front but looking back in hindsight I should have stayed at Liverpool and taken that on because I could have done a decent job there."
Paul Walsh reveals why he may have left Liverpool rather prematurely in 1987 when he moved to Terry Venables Tottenham. On liverpoolfc.tv in October 2006
