Quiet Genius


Availability: Out of stock


'Painstakingly researched and beautifully written, this is an evocative, intimate portrait that at last shines a light on one of the most compelling, most successful figures in English football's history.'  Rory Smith, New York Times

We are hurtling through the age of the box-office football manager, in which the most ordinary of that number assume the significance of international statesmen, the best are considered divinely gifted, and someone as undemonstrative as Bob Paisley, with this propensity for flat caps, Brylcreem and cardigans, is considered an anachronism.  But he showed there was another way.  The quiet man broke a football management mould.

'A brilliant read and a great insight into what made Bob Paisley one of the true greats.  He is a Liverpool legend, of course, but in reality he should be a European and world legend and known about far beyond Liverpool.'  Jamie Carragher


'One might get the impression that Bob is a very quiet person and yes, I would agree with that.  But he is prepared to give anyone else the limelight, rather than himself.  This is a very rare thing.'  Sir Matt Busby

'He knows how to be hard without being too loud.  He had a smile as wide as Stockton High Stree but he's hard.  Oh yes.  He's as hard as nails and as canny as they come.'  Brian Clough

'I don't think he was ever comfortable one-on-one.  But he was very quick witted.  Often too sharp for those around him.  Graeme Souness

'After playing his team at Anfield I knew I didn't have to say another word to my players about keeping the ball.  That was a part of my education.'  Sir Alex Ferguson
