I'm stumped with this one.
Is it related to Shanks' overall record at Wembley?

No. Only the 38 and 74 finals are relevant

Is it related to something that didn't occur in both finals?

I'll guess at it being the biggest gap between a person winning FA Cups, albeit one as a player and one as a manager.

Keeper tips the shot round the post. I think that record is held by Billy Walker, as a player with Villa in 1920 and as a manager with Forest in 1959.

But I think you're thinking along the right lines

This one seems to be either so obscure that nobody is realising the relevance, or so straightforward that nobody can believe it's the answer.

As an extra clue, Oxford Stone is right to be thinking along the lines of a longest/shortest/oldest/youngest/first/last/fastest/slowest type of e/o.

You should have all of the information you need now, you just need to work out the significance.

A quick recap:

- We are looking for a record/milestone/sequence type of event involving Bill Shankly.
- The record/milestone/sequence relates to his involvement in the 1938 and 1974 FA Cup Finals. None of his other matches at Wembley (or indeed anywhere else) are particularly relevant
- There is no connection to Huddersfield Town
- It doesn't relate to his retirement (or being asked to retire), nor does it relate to him displaying a scarf
- It doesn't relate to the losing side wearing stripes (though I love that stat, thanks Paul!)
- It has nothing to do with the 74 Final being his last game in charge, nor to do with supporters bowing at his feet
- t's not the longest gap between Cup wins by an individual, but longest/shortest/oldest/youngest/first/last/fastest/slowest is the type of e/o that you should be thinking of

I think that's about it.

Let's try a cryptic question

Could Billy Walker (post 58) have potentially set this same record/milestone/sequence at the 1959 Final?

Hypothetically that is. I wouldn't dream of asking for a trawl through records Smile

Yes. Had I asked the question in the early 60s, it would have involved Walker rather than Shankly.

If you had asked this question before the 1974 FA Cup Final would the answer have been Bob Stokoe?

As long as it was asked after 5/5/73, yes.

I don't have a question I can use and I'm away for the weekend so trying to provide a tap in for some else but if my theory is right the person prior to Shankly and Stokoe would be Don Revie.

Bobby Gould could be on the list (after Shankly) but he was an unused sub when he got an FA Cup winners medal.

Then again, I could be completely on the wrong track and making a right arse of myself.

Would Shankly also have been the answer after the 1965 final?

Yes, to Revie, yes to Gould not being on the list, and no you aren't making an arse of yourself.

Your theory is correct. All I need to know is why its Shankly (and not Gould or anyone else)

If I ever get a spare 15 minutes today I'll hopefully figure it out! Til then, is the fact that Shanks won both finals an essential part of the answer?
