Notes[eedit | eedit soorce]
- The poseetion o weeng hauf is nou obsolete in fitbaw terminology but it wis an important role at the time o Shankly's career whan teams routinely played in a 2–3–5 formation. The weeng haufs (richt an left) played ootside the centre-hauf in the middle three. Awtho some weeng haufs war mair creative than defensive, Shankly's job wis tae win the baw (hence his emphasis on his tacklin skills) an muive it forwart, sae he wis the equivalent o whit is cried a haudin midfielder in 21st century fitbaw.
