Dynasty: Fifty Years of Shankly’s Liverpool



Fifty years of unparalleled success: an incredible 35 major trophies in five decades. But how was that success achieved? And how can those successes (and failures) be measured against one another? “Dynasty” sets the context for such analysis, examining the obstacles each manager faced and the fortune they had along the way. Which manager did the best job? What situation – and what players – did each inherit? What state was the club in, politically and financially? How expertly were they…
