Christmas With The Shankly Family

Every household has their own special Christmas traditions and the Shankly family are no different.

Despite his unwavering commitment to football; Bill Shankly was a big family man and loved to spend Christmas with his loved ones.

One of 10 children born to John and Barbara Shankly, his siblings were Alec, James, John Jnr, Bob, Netta, Elizabeth, Isobel, Barbara and Jean. Shankly placed a lot of worth and tribute to the family unit and carried these values into his own family when he married Nessie and had his own children.

We spoke to Jeanette Shankly, Bill’s second daughter, about what Christmas was like in the Shankly household with Bill, Nessie and her sister Barbara.

A Shankly Christmas

Christmas was a very traditional affair in the Shankly household. Every year, the Shankly’s would spend Christmas at their home and Nessie would cook their traditional Christmas dinner.

Shankly’s young family did a lot of moving around in their early years, and it wasn’t until 1959 when Bill became the manager of Liverpool F.C that they eventually put down permanent roots in the West Derby area of the City, an area the family never left to this day.

family and nessies dad

When she was young, Jeanette remembers their very traditional, happy family Christmases. However, on occasion, Bill would have to work.

“When we were younger, sometimes we were lucky if he was at home to spend Christmas with us. This was because depending on fixtures, he was usually playing or managing a team on Boxing Day. As a result, sometimes he would have to go away Christmas Eve or failing that, Christmas night.”

If by luck he wasn’t involved in football one way or another, he would spend the festive period with his family.

To celebrate this he would stretch to having a bit of whiskey in his tea. Shankly wasn’t a big drinker but on the rare occasion he did, it would always be a small whiskey.

Jeanette also remembers when Bill was managing Liverpool, every Christmas the Shankly family would receive a huge hamper full of festive food for the family to enjoy. Always a treat!

Bill and Agnes Shankly

As the family grew in size when both Barbara and Jean grew up to find partners, the whole family would usually go round to Bill’s on Christmas Day or Boxing Day and celebrate the festive season together.

However, it was still always touch and go whether he would be able to stay, as of course, football dominated his life!

Barbara gave Bill and Nessie their first grandchildren in the form of Karen, Pauline and Emma, and Jeanette soon followed suit with Jenny and Claire. Jeanette would go on to give birth to a sixth grandchild, and Bill’s first and one and only grandson, Chris.

Right up until the end, Bill Shankly’s family was the most important thing to him. Before his death he said: “There’s nobody closer to you than your own kith and kin; your own blood. I’ve got my wife, my daughters, grandchildren, and my sons in law. They’re the closest to me and I would die for them.”

The History of Football at Christmas

Of course, The Shankly Family weren’t the only ones who knew that Christmas Day and football went hand in hand.

Today, Christmas Day is football free, however up until the 1950s football was once as much of a Christmas Day staple as the Queen’s Speech and pigs in blankets.

One of the great festive traditions that began in 1889 and remained very popular until the end of the 1950s, the Christmas Day home fixture was often the occasion when clubs attracted one of their highest home gates of the season.

But throughout the 1950s, attitudes changed towards playing sport on the 25th December.

Christmas Day 1957 saw a near full round of fixtures: 37 out of a maximum 46 games took place; in 1959 there were just two games.

christmas footall

Understandably, Christmas Day football was very unpopular with the players, who felt it meant they could not enjoy the festivities and see their families.

As transport systems declined and crowds began to dwindle, the fixture eventually disappeared from the football calendar.

The final December 25th programme of games in England was in the 1957/58 season.

Today, games are still played on Boxing Day but Christmas Day football is a thing of the past.

We’ve hope you’ve enjoyed our look inside the Shankly family Christmas.

Shankly’s Liverpool will be taking on Swansea City this Boxing Day 2017, with hopes they can maintain their top 4 place in the league!

The Merseyside Derby

friendly derby

It is the longest running top-flight derby in England, having been played continuously since the 1962–63 season and is known around the world as the ‘friendly derby’.

Liverpool host the Blues in the 229th Merseyside derby this Sunday, looking to secure a fourth straight victory over their local rivals under Jurgen Klopp.

Saturday’s victory took Liverpool into the Premier League’s top four, with Klopp’s side having won five of their six fixtures since their 4-1 defeat to Tottenham in October.

However, the Blues will visit Anfield in good form, having recorded back-to-back victories to coincide with Sam Allardyce’s arrival as new manager.
