    The Impossible Job – Managing LFC in the 1950s

    By TTT Subscriber Andrew Mckay (orton929000). The world of football media is filled with discussions and debates about the greatest or best ever, but the darker realms of the worst are usually overlooked, apart from an occasional sneering article about a club’s most untalented players.
