It's a funny ol' game, well it is according to that legendary scoring machine James Greaves (426 goals), but to William Shankley OBE it's not a matter of life an death, it's far more important!

The first professional football match he saw was at Brentford in the 1950s when the funniest thing about football was the shorts the players wore and the cap the keeper had on his head.

Richard supports Spurs... who will have a top 3 finish this season.
