50 Years Ago Since Winning Promotion And Resemblances to 2012

Many Liverpool Football Club supporters are too young to remember those times, but from the tales of my grandfather who has supported the club since the early 1950s, I drew on a few conclusions. The current Liverpool Football Club team is going through the same agonies and anxieties of the class of 1961. This current team can play the most wonderful attractive football, looking at their statistics this season in most of the games they have played, the only lacking attribute is in their finishing off this beautiful football.

So I had a talk with my grandfather the other day and he told me, we the fans of Liverpool from today do not know the feeling of true suffering as Liverpool Football Club supporters. My grandfather was lucky enough to witness Bill Shankly's Liverpool team. Back in the late 1950s, Liverpool Football Club were in the second tier of English soccer, the club were in total shambles and had no opportunity of returning top flight football to their fans, that was until Bill Shankly took over as manager of the club.

As soon as he took over he got rid of all the players that no longer deserved to play in the famous red shirt. According to my grandfather, Shankly gave the Liverpool fans a team that they could follow and be proud of. However it was not as easy to get the club back into the top division of English soccer, it took Shankly roughly 3 years to get a side that would gel and play a brand of soccer that would return the team back to the top division. Shankly had a plan, to not only return the club back to the top division but to also mould them into champions of England as well as Europe.

So how does this compare to the current Liverpool Football Club scenario ? Well simply put Kenny Dalglish who learned from Bill Shankly's colleagues, Bob Paisley and Joe Fagan, understands that the first hurdle the team needed to overcome is to start winning trophies again. This team had to qualify for the UEFA Champions League, however this did not happen. Now for many supporters this team is not worth the famous old red shirt, but when you compare the trials the team faced 50 years ago, you can see similarities, in the late 1950s, the team almost won promotion but only managed to do so in 1962.

Yet after their promotion they never looked back and went on to greater things, similarly this Liverpool team have been very unlucky in the league,but managed to win the Carling Cup and are in the FA Cup Final. So perhaps greater things could happen in the future under the stewardship of Kenny Dalglish. The current team's problem is that they can't score goals, so should Kenny add a few players that will bring the finishing touches to this team, Liverpool Football Club could return to greater things in the future.
