Robert "Bob" Paisley OBE (23 January 1919 - 14 February 1996) was an English football half back turned manager. His association with Liverpool was to span nearly half a century including his contribution to the club, first as a player, then as a physiotherapist and coach, and finally as manager.

In nine years as manager between 1974 and 1983, he took Liverpool to six League Titles, three European Cups, one UEFA Cup, three League Cups, five Community Shields and a UEFA Super Cup. He is often regarded as the greatest Liverpool FC manager of all time, due to his year-to-championship record.

Paisley is the only manager in history to win three European Cups.
