The Style of Shanks

There’s always a bit of needle between local rivals: Spurs and Arsenal, Man City and Man U – even Preston and Burnley. So it is with Liverpool and Everton.

Into the mix recently has been pitched the comment by Liverpool manager Rafa Benítez that Everton were a “small club”.

Call me old fashioned, but if I object to one thing about that remark, it’s that it’s lacking in style. Bill Shankly delivered a far better dig at his rivals, without even mentioning them.

Shanks simply said “There’s two great teams on Merseyside ... ehh ... Liverpool ... ehh ... and Liverpool Reserves”
