The best thing we shared today

The letter written by the legendary Bill Shankly when he tendered his resignation from Liverpool has been revealed.

On the record

“You hear most managers and coaches talking about a player-driven environment. I think that managers get far too much credit when things go right and far too much criticism when things go wrong. Sometimes, with the players, it is not that you want them to take over, but they are the ones that sacrificed a huge amount. They just made a promise to each other that this 35 minutes, they will put everything into it. They are like every other inter-county team. They have worked extremely hard since last October and that brings a certain amount of pressure on you too when you could be out after this 35 minutes. They delivered under that pressure, which is a very good sign.”

Waterford senior hurling manager Derek McGrath explains why he stepped out of the Deise dressing at half-time in yesterday’s All-Ireland quarter-final win over Dublin.

The fixture list
