Cup double seekers Liverpool need dosh, patience, stability – AND King Kenny
SACK Kenny Dalglish. He’s past it, a dinosaur of a football manager – a man who should have stayed on the golf course.
He’s spent badly, his tactics are shite, he’s lost the dressing room.
Speaking out against his poorperforming players after the Bolton balls-up was a big mistake, the final straw. Sack Dalglish. Words like these appeared in newspapers and on websites just a week ago.
Liverpool are their first final years and in round of the FA
Dalglish has handedly ended city of Manchester’s hopes of success in a cup competition this season.
Now the calls for another change at Anfield look like words typed by a drugged-up monkey.
In many cases they probably were.
A cup on the sideboard in his first full season back in charge should keep the monkeys off his back.
Not that Dalglish will be too bothered.
Whisper it to the Kop faithful, but Dalglish has got a touch of the Alex Ferguson about him.
The 60-year-old is shitty with the media men and doesn’t seem to give a f*** about the world outside Anfield.
So the world outside Anfield find it easy to hate the man they call King in the postal district of Liverpool 4.
Par for the course, the keen golfer may say. alglish is not Liverpool manager to be liked by opposition supporters or gentlemen of the press.
He’s there to win football matches.
And let’s get this right, he’s struggled to do that at times – his side have drawn seven times at Anfield and goals have been harder to find than a fat bird’s fanny.
But those drawing the knives for the Scot have ignored all that has been good about his second coming.
This season Liverpool have won at Stamford Bridge (twice), the Emirates and the Etihad.
The style of football is vintage red wine and a blowjob from a supermodel compared to Roy Hodgson’s Kestrel Super Strength and a rough w*nk in the rain from Tracey the divorced barmaid.
Sacking Dalglish a year into the
Dnow in for five the next Cup. singlethe job after backing him to sign nine players makes no sense at all.
Anfield is still washing the walls from a bloody financial fight with their previous owners that took them to the cliff edge of bankruptcy.
That led to an exodus of talent, including world-class stars like Xabi Alonso, Javier Mascherano and Fernando Torres.
Torres left weeks into Dalglish’s reign – but the seeds had been sown long before.
The Spaniard the broken Those players been replaced top stars nent the
simple – was sick of promises. have not as for many on the contiequation is out of Europe equals out of mind.
Dalglish has spunked £100million – but it’s buttons compared to the side he sent spinning out of the Carling Cup – Manchester City.
Andy Carroll, Stewart Downing and Jordan Henderson all cost top wedge.
All have shown glimpses of talent but have lacked a consistent threat.
But even if they prove to be flops, should that signal Dalglish’s exit? an City have the bulging vaults of the richest man in football to thank for their rise to the top.
It’s taken them a billion quid and four years to mount a serious title challenge and their fans have witnessed more flops than Pele’s bedroom.
Robinho (£32.5m), Emmanuel Adebayor (£25m), Jo (£18m), Roque Santa Cruz (£17.5m) are just a few examples of the cack they’ve signed.
But City have just kept on spending – and for the last three years they’ve kept their manager, too.
Liverpool need the same approach – dosh, patience and stability.
It’s a lock on the still spinning manager’s door at Anfield that’s required, not an ejector seat with Dalglish’s name on it.
Liverpool will lose more games this season and Dalglish will make more mistakes – just like every manager.
But with a Wembley double to aim for, Luis Suarez set to return after his ban and signings starting to shine, it’s POSSIBLE Liverpool could build up a head of steam to railroad their way to fourth place and the golden ticket to the Champions League.
