boot room
 n.— «Bill Shankly began it when he became Liverpool manager in 1959. Bob Paisley and Joe Fagan, who went on to win four European Cups between them, spent long hours during their formative coaching years under Shankly discussing the beautiful game in an Anfield cubby-hole. The boot room became a metaphor for Britain’s—and one of Europe’s—most successful schools of football.» —“Anfield’s new boot room boys” by Andy Hall UEFA.com Aug. 12, 2005.
