The team was nothing special, and it wouldn't be until December 1959 that things really started to change. December 1959 signalled the beginning of the reign of whom many people believe to be the best football manager to have ever lived - Bill Shankly. When he took over, Liverpool were languishing in the old Second Division, but by the 63/64 season were in the First Division. That wasn't the only change, either, Shankly decided to scrap the blue kit and bring in an all red kit. He believed that the team looked defiant in their new colours. It took only two seasons for Liverpool FC to conquer the First Division, and many more titles were on their way. After Bill Shankly came another hugely influencial manager in Bob Paisley, who carried on with Bill Shankly's success and also took Liverpool to European success. Unfortunately in 1981 Paisley died suddenly of a heart-attack and the team was left with another one of the "boot-room boys" - Joe Fagan. He was successful, and won the 4th European Cup with Liverpool, but tradgedy in Heysel saw his reign come to an end. Liverpool's form started to slump with the arrival of Greame Souness as manager, and soon Liverpool's dominance of English football ended. It wasn't until Gerard Houllier was appointed in the late 90s that Liverpool started to show glimpses of their previous success.
