Thank You, Kenny

I’ll never forget the supporters chanting the name of Kenny Dalglish during the short-lived Hodgson era. There were some though who were afraid that an unsuccessful return could tarnish his impeccable legacy at the club. I say there is no way you could tarnish the record or image of such a dignified man.

Kenny has always been a servant of Liverpool. The Scot adopted the city that provided him with years of success and continues to be available whenever and wherever he is needed. He is a fan of the club and a champion of his players. The only thing wrong with Kenny Dalglish as manager this past season were the results. Ending a 6 year trophy drought was not enough to keep him in the manger’s seat. At other clubs, this might have been a success, but Liverpool expect more and deep down, Kenny knows this.

There will be debate in the coming months as to whether this was the right move by FSG. Most of that debate will take place at a time when hindsight is 20/20. I say it was a good move to bring him back because seeing Kenny on the touchline week after week gave me a fuzzy feeling. Sentiment can only take you so far and maybe as a manager, Kenny is also too sentimental. But as a person, he is in a different class.

Thank you, Kenny Dalglish, for taking on a huge task that was begged of you by the fans. I wish this journey had a storybook ending, but that is not the reality of the situation. You will always be the King of the Kop and no job or role or win/loss record will change that.

    Like to second that Kenny hold your head high you are still the King. When the club was spiralling out of control, you came back and steadied the ship. Hope you stay as part of the club somehow. but wouldnt blame you if you decided enough was ehough. we live in a fickle world these days.

    Liked your comment on TIA though it was immediately down-voted to hell lol. People don’t seem to have manners or understand respect.

    FSG will regret this, despite the results, you could see signs, some of the play was brilliant, Kenny should have been given another year, shame on FSG, they have lost a lot of people who trusted them because of this.
    I wish the players would show their allegiance to Kenny, a mass transfer request would do it, and the fans that supported Kenny should boycott the first game of next season.
    This is a terrible mistake, KK is like Carra and Gerrard, LFC through and through, now we do not have a manager to take the fight to Man U, how wrong it is that Ferguson got so many years before getting it right, Kenny doesn’t get the same.
    I supported LFC since 1977, but this is the end for me, the last hope LFC had has now gone, we are just another Villa, Everton, mid table team that will not acheive greatness again in my lifetime, I cannot bear to see Liverpool go that way, but that is now the reality, and I would prefer to walk away than carrying on supporting LFC when such bad decisions are made.
    RIP Liverpool’s Heart and the last manager to ever care about Liverpool above money.

    Wonderful post!!! I can’t understand some of the fans who belittle him. 

    He loves the club so much. He came to our rescue in time of desperation. He whole heartedly support his player and not bow to the media / Fergie’s ploy. Whatever happened, Kenny will always be our King and stay in our hearts forever. All the very best to you, our King!
