‘Football – it’s not a matter of life and death – it’s much much more important than that.’ Bill Shankly, ex manager of Liverpool (and Huddersfield) FCs.:
‘Le foot, ce n’est pas une question de la vie ou de la mort – c’est beaucoup plus important que ça.’
In an interview Bill Shankly also quoted: ‘Foist is foist and second is nut’n’ which I can translate into English only: ‘First is first and second is nothing (!)’. After which a gun was produced and a man shot dead…don’t be alarmed: this is from an American film/movie Shankly had once watched.
