I am 67 years of age and have supported Liverpool F.C. since I was 6 years old. I am a current main stand season ticket holder.
How can you love a man you never really met? For 50 years I have treasured a letter which is framed and is displayed proudly in my office to this day. It is on official Liverpool Football Club headed notepaper, it reads;-
Dear David. “Find enclosed for derby game as requested.” Best wishes; and is signed BILL SHANKLY manager.
This was in response to my letter pleading for a ticket as I had crashed on my scooter and injured myself to the extent I could not queue for hours as was required in those days to obtain a ticket. Mr Shankly had also previously sent me a ticket for an F.A. Cup semi-final against Leicester City, following a similar demise when I broke my collar bone and cracked some ribs. Unfortunately I do not have any correspondence to back this up. It was only years later that I fully realised how unique this gesture was. Beyond doubt a true man of the people, Mr.Shankly would have paid for those tickets from his own pocket without really knowing that the requests made were truthful. I never paid for the tickets (I was never asked to) but along with so many in the City of Liverpool I would like to think I repaid him with love. It would be interesting to write to all current Premiership managers with a similar request today. I doubt that you would even get a reply from most of them never mind a free ticket.
I have some other memories. When travelling to away games, the fans would stop on the way home and often the team coach would pass by, the players were usually playing cards. Only Mr. Shankly would stand up and acknowledge every one of them. Also famously Mr. Shankly asked for volunteers to go to Anfield and clear snow from the pitch and stoke the coal braziers in order that a match could be played. I was one of those volunteers and in my hazy memory, Mr Shankly came round with cups of tea for the volunteers, this though I cannot recall clearly but I may just have met the man I have loved for so many years.
