STARS ENGLAND BOB PAISLEY Portrait Drawing Soccer Football Khaled3Ken Gallery
Robert Paisley OBE (23 January 1919 — 14 February 1996) was an English footballerand manager who spent almost fifty years with Liverpool as a right-back, physiotherapist,coach, and finally manager. In nine years as manager, Paisley led Liverpool to win twenty honours – six First Division Championships, three League Cups, six FA Charity Shields, three European Cups, one UEFA Cup and one UEFA Super Cup. He is often cited as one of the greatest football managers of all time, and is to date the only manager in history to have won three European Cups.
Paisley had left school in 1933 to become a miner, and was later apprenticed as a bricklayer before turning to professional football. He married his wife Jessie in 1946 and they had two sons, Robert junior and Graham, and a daughter, Christine.
Having first signed for Liverpool in 1939, Paisley's managerial career came to an end at the end of the 1982-83 season after spending 44 unbroken years at the club. He was replaced by Joe Fagan, another of the Boot Room old boys.
He worked as a consultant and advisor to Kenny Dalglish for two years from his appointment as player-manager in June 1985, before being appointed as a director.
In early 1986, aged 66, he was interviewed by the Football Association of Ireland, discussing coming out of retirement to take charge of the Republic of Ireland national football team. However, Jack Charlton was soon named to the Irish post instead.
He continued to serve Liverpool as a director until he retired in early 1992 due to ill health, having been diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease, which became apparent in his early seventies when he was unable to remember his way home when driving from Anfield.
He died on 14 February 1996 at the age of 77, and after his death he was honoured by the club with the opening of the Paisley Gates at one of the entrances to Anfield, complementing the existing Shankly Gates. He had spent the final months of his life in a nursing home.
He was buried in the churchyard of St Peter's Church in Woolton, Liverpool.
His son Graham Paisley is the rector at this church.
Paisley was made an Inaugural Inductee of the English Football Hall of Fame in 2002 in recognition of his impact on the English game as a manager.
Among the memorials to Paisley is a sheltered housing complex in Hartnup Street, Liverpool, which was opened in 1998 and named Bob Paisley Court.
There is also a small commemorative plaque on the front of the supermarket on Front Street in Hetton-le-Hole town centre.
He was survived by his wife Jessie, a school teacher four years his senior. She died in the early hours of 8 February 2012 in a Liverpool hospital as a result of a heart infection, aged 96
