Philip Henry Taylor (18 September 1917 - 1 December 2012) was English professional footballer and manager. He played for Liverpool from 1936 to 1954 and managed the club from 1956 to 1959. He played as a wing half, making a total of 343 appearances and scoring 32 goals.

Liverpool career Edit

Taylor joined Liverpool as a young inside-forward with a lot of potential but was reverted to wing-half by George Kay where he developed into a stylish, composed defender. Taylor was a member of Liverpool's 1946–47 Championship winning team making 35 league appearances scoring once.

Taylor was handed the captaincy during the 1949/50 season and led the side to the FA Cup final on 29 April 1950; he appeared 7 times in the cup run. Arsenal ruined the day for the Reds by beating them 2–0.
