    I grew up with Shanks, Paisley, Fagan and Dalglish giving us the Glory days

    we went off the rails after that and it wasn't until Houllier rebuilt that we had the players who produced a mini revival

    but that faded and we are where we are...

    He loves discussing previous managers as it's supposed to relate to the present.

    Lost in the semi final of the old Cup Winners Cup to PSG
    For that era when we were still possibly the biggest club around, it was a poor return.

    I still cannot understand why he didn't sell James much sooner, say we signed somebody like Nigel Martyn we might have won the league.

    How was James allowed to continuously make error after error?

    True. But also a lot of the players we bought were not ideal at that time with the pulling power we had. We could have got a few class proven players rather than what he bought.

    Yes a few solid signings like Martin, Speed, sherringham, Southgate etc. We could have won the league. Also we did not go for internation stars when we had the pulling power.

    Migs isn't perfect but James was an absolute clown, he was at fault for all 3 goals in that famous match against Newcastle in 1996, the FA cup final as well blunders against relegation struggler's Nottingham Forest & Coventry in the run in unquestionably cost us the league title that we have waited so long for at the time. The spice boys under Roy Evans = too much partying, playstation playing and modeling.

    It was yeah, Babb revealed that it was James who came up with the idea, as he was modelling for Armani at the time.

    Initially the players got fitted with navy blue suits.

    Joe Fagan does get overlooked. He gets overlooked by the 'Everything pre 1992 doesn't exist brigade". Joe Fagan won the first treble in 1984. It was not Baconface in 1999.

    like other posters on here I grew up with Bob Paisley Joe Fagan and Dalglish so I never really seen in my eyes Joe Fagan has been overlooked

    P.s as for Bill Shankly I used to watch every video I could get hold of of his style of football and documentaries about him

    Try reading my post before commenting. Not once did I say Joe Fagan gets overlooked by Liverpool fans. He gets overlooked by the 'Everything pre 1992 doesn't exist brigade". Every Liverpool fan acknowledges his achievements. Every Liverpool fan acknowledges his work prior to getting the top job. In fact he's recognised as being the brains in Shanks coaching staff. Shanks was the motivator, Bob was the tactical genius and Joe was the brains.

    Again miscommunication I was just trying to say that I grew up with Joe Fagan

    And I never saw him as someone I overlooked

    Sorry

    Yeah you're pretty right with what you're saying about the 1992 brigade

    I heard that saying so many times growing up about shanks Bob and Joe

    Thank you for the memories peace out

    I think Fagan is overlooked Especially by the media.
    To say he won a treble ...youd think hed get a mention much more often.

    He's only in the news when they talk about heysel

    Agreed.

    Exactly.

    According to the 'Everthing before 1992 doesn't exist because there was no Sky" brigade the only manager to win 3 trophies in the same season is the referee buyer. That's why Joe Fagan gets overlooked.

    Yeah Joe won the first treble and gets overlooked. Difference is that his treble was the League Cup not the FA cup Fergie won in his treble. Both hard to do.

    We also won a cup treble under GH too. Again not an easy thing to do. Those memories of us doing that were special for us I think too.

    Overlooked by who, when?

    He had basically one very good season - but that was his entire frontline managerial career. He's one of our legends, and if he'd been a manager for longer and repeated his success he'd no doubt be more widely recognised - but he didn't.
