“When you walk through a storm
Keep your chin up high
And don’t be afraid of the dark.
At the end of a storm is a golden sky
And the sweet, silver song of a lark.
Walk on through the wind,
Walk on through the rain,
Tho’ your dreams be tossed and blown.
Walk on, walk on with hope in your heart
And you’ll never walk alone.”
–Oscar Hammerstein II (Nettie Fowler: Carousel: You’ll Never Walk Alone)
Ronnie Moran (28th February 1934 - 22nd March 2017)
Anfield legend Ronnie Moran sadly passed away in the small hours of this morning, aged 83.
The player, captain, coach, mentor, twice assistant-manager and Boot Room original lived much of his life in a comfortable bungalow in Crosby.
In the mind’s eye of Liverpool fans from all over the world however, Moran’s spiritual home was a claustrophobic corner of Anfield known as the Boot Room, where three decades of unprecedented footballing success were plotted by some of the sharpest football minds of the time.
He’s now back in the Boot Room with Bill Shankly.
A real football man, a credit to Liverpool Football Club and a true gentleman.
Wishing all his family and friends well at this sad time.
