Lee became a regular from 1980 onwards and, although small in stature, he established a reputation as a sharp-passing and strong-running midfield player who could also hit a decent shot.


In the 1981 League Cup final, Lee was at the centre of a controversial incident which left opponents West Ham United feeling slightly cheated. Lee had ventured forwards in an attack and ended up flat out on the turf following a challenge. The West Ham defence pushed out of their area to leave Lee in an obvious offside position but when Liverpool full back Alan Kennedy scored with a follow-up shot, the goal stood. The rules about "interfering with play" were still vague back then, and there is no doubt that a similar goal now would also be allowed to stand without complaint. West Ham did equalise but Liverpool won the replay with Lee in the side. The Football League Cup, commonly known as the League Cup, is an English football competition. ...

In that year's European Cup semi-final against Bayern Munich, Lee was unusually asked to do a man-marking job on Paul Breitner, the strong and skilful West German player. It was the first instance Liverpool players recall of worrying at all about an opponent, normally preferring to let the opposition do the worrying, but Lee did the marking job to perfection and Liverpool went through to the final against Real Madrid, which they won 1-0 with Lee again in the side.

Injuries took their toll in 1985 and Lee struggled to regain his previous form. With Jan Mølby in the side, there was no longer a place for Lee at Liverpool. He left during the August of 1986 joining QPR.

This was to be a role that he would remain in for a year, but in June 2005 he made a return to league football with Bolton as the assistant-manager to Sam Allardyce following the departure of Phil Brown to Derby County. In August 2006 he was offered the full-time role of England U-21 manager (held by Peter Taylor who divides his time between Crystal Palace F.C. and England), but Lee turned it down; he also stepped down from his England role to concentrate full time on his club commitments with Bolton.[3] On 30 April 2007 he was appointed full-time manager of Bolton Wanderers in succession to Sam Allardyce.[4] Please sign the Sir Nat Lofthouse Petition : http://petitions. ...
