Thank You Kenny Dalglish

Deserves its own space, away from debates over individuals who, albeit decent human beings, are not in the same category of my affection as one Kenny Dalglish.

 

Deserves to be thanked for the joy he gave me as a player. For really making the #7 special. For winning goals in European cup finals and on the last day of the season at Stamford Bridge. For winning the double and producing one of the most exciting teams in the whole of history. For my glee for the man when he lost at Anfield and yet still won the league. for the way he never, ever, ever, never, bad mouthed this club, its staff or players ever in the media. For wanting to put smiles on people's faces. For making me as excited as a 10 year old when I heard he was our manager again. For adding another trophy to his legend. For being, quite simply, the greatest player in our history. For being up there with Shanks in terms of his identity with who we are. For being...

Legend and King

 

Thanks Kenny

 

f*** off FSG

 

I thoroughly agree with him being a legend and a king, and I love him as much as anyone who was around to watch him play and manage us in the 80s.

 

However, blaming FSG is a bit silly. It was a poor season.

Bit late now isn't it?

 

bit late for what? Thanking Dalglish and chanting his name? eh...

 

tbh... not sure if you're seeking to turn this into a 'who-supported-Kenny-the-most' thing or not, but if you are then you can take a run and jump. I'm not here to debate who's the most loyal or disloyal fan with anyone, or even to comment about what I think about FSG for that matter...

 

I'm posting because this day a legend is no longer the manager of this beloved football club and I want to say thank you. Anyone who wants to start any other agenda can start their own thread or get on the other one.

 

Just to repeat

 

Thank you Kenny Dalglish

Thank you, Kenny. I feel honoured to have seen him in charge of our club. Didn't really get it the first time around.

Thanks for saving the club from Roy Hodgson. And just as much, thank you for restoring the identity of Liverpool FC at a time when the club was in a limbo of having been near destroyed by G&H/CFP/RFH and were looking for a direction under new ownership. The way you stepped up and showed the way and how things are done at LFC was a joy.

 

I hope whatever else that he will have helped leave a legacy in this regard for the club to keep up with.

 

Won't blame FSG. I wanted him to stay, but I can't say this was harsh or unjust.

The man gave his all for decades and sometimes all he got from the club were snubs or sacks. Without him putting us back on track after the owl days, we could be in an even worse state. He mightn't be the man (in the owners eyes) to get us to where we wanna go, but he has done a heck lot more good than bad since he came back. Hope he is still up for some role with the club

My mate was playing in an exhibition school match once at right back. He did a little inside turn on the touchline to beat his man and laid it off to the midfielder, and he heard 'well done son!' from behind him. It was Kenny Dalglish. My mate says it was the greatest single moment of his life. He beams when he says this sat in his front room, and his wife and his kids gather round him and go 'aaaah', all made up for him.

Kenny Dalglish today paid tribute to the supporters and staff of Liverpool Football Club after his second spell as manager came to an end.

 

 

Despite feeling a sense of disappointment at leaving his post, the Scotsman revealed the pride he has felt at leading the Club over the past 16 months - and thanked Fenway Sports Group for the way in which his departure has been handled.

 

"It has been an honour and a privilege to have had the chance to come back to Liverpool Football Club as Manager," said Dalglish. "I greatly appreciate the work that Steve, Kevin, the players and all of the staff put in during my time and feel proud that we delivered the Club's first trophy in six years winning the Carling Cup and came close to a second trophy in the FA Cup Final. Of course I am disappointed with results in the league, but I would not have swapped the Carling Cup win for anything as I know how much it meant to our fans and the Club to be back winning trophies.

 

"Whilst I am obviously disappointed to be leaving the football club, I can say that the matter has been handled by the owners and all concerned in an honourable, respectful and dignified way and reflects on the quality of the people involved and their continued desire to move the football club forward in the same way as when they arrived here.

 

"I would like to thank all of the staff at the Club for their effort and loyalty. I said when first approached about coming back as Manager that I would always be of help if I can at any time and that offer remains the same.

 

"Finally, I want to put on record my heartfelt gratitude to Liverpool's fans, who have always given me and the Club their unwavering support. Without them neither the Club nor I would have achieved anything."

I really wanted to say something to show support when I ran into him & I should have.

It made me realise I wanted him to stay on and give it another shot.

 

Nobody in their heart wanted to see him go. I'm devastated, completely f***ing gutted.

 

Thank you Kenny, and hope you stay at the club.
