Shankly: 50 Years on. 1974-2024

To commemorate the upcoming anniversary of 50 years since Bill Shankly shook the world and retired from football, we are launching an exclusive range of apparel.

 Shankly was a staunch socialist; a man of the people. His politics are as relevant today as they ever were………50 years on. Our designs will focus on reflecting his socialism and his visionary ideologies, a reflection on the relevance of his ethos…………50 years on.

Man of the People

“I identified myself with the people because at the end of the day, the game belongs to the people. And if you don’t have the people on your side then you’ve got nothing. I was a working class boy. I was one of them.”

Shankly was a man of the people. His socialist principles were the bedrock for everything he did. In 1965 he famously turned up at Eldon Grove in North Liverpool to watch a grass roots game of football. The legendary Scot positioned himself in amongst the residents of the Eldon Grove flats to cast an eye over proceedings, and even ended up snagging an invite into one flat for a cup of team and a chat. He wouldn’t have wanted it any other way!

Our Man of the People design shows Shankly stood on the balcony, in amongst the residents, the people; surveying the proceedings. Current Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp instantly recognised the power of the people and how important they were to building a successful Liverpool team, something he did at previous club Dortmund, establishing an instant connection with the people, just as Shanks did; 50 years on.

Regular Fit: We recommend purchasing your normal size.
