    Think that last one was the longest-serving Twitter thread we've had

    George Patterson (2nd term)
    Birthdate: 1887
    Birthplace: ?
    Other clubs as manager: None
    Arrived from: Liverpool secretary
    Signed for LFC: March 1928
    First game in charge: 07.03.1928
    Contract Expiry: 06.08.1936
    LFC league games as manager: 348
    Total LFC games as manager: 366
    Honours:


    Manager profile

    When Patterson returned to being just Secretary, David Ashworth came from Stockport County to take over as manager. Patterson was pleased by his successorís progress as the club scored 18 goals without reply in five wins in the league and three in the FA Cup from the middle of January to mid-February. ĎThe interest in the club is enormous, and their run of league and cup successes is quite natural under the circumstances,í Patterson said in the Liverpool Echo. ĎThe boys are playing fine football and for long enough the people of Liverpool have recognised this and have stood by the side although we started rather badly. It was one goal against us week by week. We turned the corner in December and confidence and good football have done the rest. The boys fear no team.í

    Having already worked at Anfield for 20 years at the time Ashworth's successor, Matt McQueen, decided to retire, it was no surprise that Patterson was asked to take over the reins with the title of secretary-manager, thus becoming in fact, the first man in Liverpool's history to manage the team in two separate eras, not Kenny Dalglish as so far has been believed by Liverpool FC historians. As things turned out, the eight full seasons during which Patterson was in charge were some of the quietest years in the clubís history, quiet in that nothing really sensational happened good or bad. They retained their place in the top division but never finished higher than fifth; they twice finished low enough to cause concern but not enough concern for relegation to be a serious possibility. But after finishing seventh in 1935, there was an alarming slump the following season with the team being victorious in only three of the last 20 league games. They eventually escaped relegation by three points but it had been a close call. The pressure of managing a First Division club where results were not good when added to a serious illness forced Patterson to resign from the managerial side of his double-post, although he continued as the clubís secretary. It was another George (Kay) who was persuaded to leave his post at Southampton and head north to take over at Anfield.

    Some man city moose on talk sport claimed that he was reliably informed..... I know, they all are, that VVD will sign in Jan along with Sanchez. Wouldn't surprise me if it did happen to be honest.

    Will be soooo peeeved off if VVD signed for any other team than us. And if he went to City that would give them one pretty awesome team if they arenít already.

    Itís going to sound like Iím being bitter but Iím genuinely not. Iíve watched VVD a lot lately and I know heís probably still getting up to speed but I havenít been impressed. If Man City want him then they are gonna have to pay massive money for him 60-70 million, Iím it sure heís worth that

    There were rumours over the weekend I recall. Not sure I believe them.
    If we are however, I bet Salah has tapped him up lol

    City wanted him in the summer too but he wanted to come here. Unless he's changed his mind I don't see what's different.

    I don't think his mind will change unless City are the only ones who'll bid for him.

    Dunno, got to be tempting to play in that Man City team.

    Be amazed if he wasnít at least tempted if they are in for him.

    He might of changed his mind though. We left him to rot at Southampton in the summer. And lets be honest it would be hard to turn down a gaurenteed premier league winners medal.

    Who even knows if we've changed our stance with waiting for Southampton to get back in touch with us.

    Read that he wasn't in London to discuss a transfer but to visit his son. Think it was from the mail online.

    Sam Allardyce to remain behind on Merseyside rather than go to Cyprus with Everton. Craig Shakespeare and Duncan Ferguson will take young squad.

    BBC Gossip section has this:

    Messi wants Barcelona to drop their interest in signing Liverpool's Brazil playmaker Philippe Coutinho, 25, in favour of a defender instead. (Diario Gol via Express)

    I always knew there was a reason I liked him more than Ronaldo
