Watched the film on iTunes this morning. The man has been my hero for over 40 years and I thought the film portrayed him brilliantly. Shed as wee tear hearing everyone talking about him and Marina at the end.
Kenny dalglish was the player i watched when i was little. I wanted to be ian rush and score goals but kenny had me spellbound. He made me want to play football. They detest him at manchester united. Must be because he routinely humiliated them. Its not like dalglish isnt a nice normal chap.
I have a feeling that he would have turned it down, don’t they ask the person first whether he wants to be considered for it? I’m not sure.
How can he be anointed by the queen he is the king of liverpool already!!!
Saw him play for Celtic as a young boy in Scotland (not a supporter of Celtic). Different class. He came down to England and thrived, no surprise. I don't think Scots truly appreciated how world class he was. A classic number 10, eyes in the back of his head and like all greats, was always two or three steps ahead of the game.
This may well be posted elsewhere, but just in case.....the documentary 'Kenny' is on next Saturday at 10.35pm on BBC1. Hopefully the match will have finished in our favour and those watching at home can enjoy a trip down memory lane
What a fantastic documentary this was. Genuinely insightful and moving. Tough watch seeing KD visibly upset when talking about Hillsborough. He doesn't give much away normally so it was a bit of a jolt to see him so emotional after all these years. Great footie clips as well, of course.
Congratulations Sir Kenneth, well deserved for a man who has been a true ambassador and football legend not just for Liverpool but for the world and in my opinion the greatest player to ever wear the red shirt.
Congratulations to Sir Kenny Dalglish on his Knighthood. This has been too long overdue and well deserved honour to a unique, amazing human being and humble man. There are not enough words to describe the tireless work he has done for our club and during the Justice campaign and for the city of Liverpool.
He will always be our King as well.
Made up to hear this. Thoroughly deserved. Top player, top player-manager, top manager, top man. What he did in the aftermath of Hillsborough was immense. With hindsight I wish the club could have somehow agreed a lengthy sabbatical with him, and he could have gone away for a while, then say 6-12 months later come back.
I hope it is true that the late timing of the Knighthood is down to Kenny previously refusing it while the truth about Hillsborough was still being covered up by the authorities.
Get a new S-I-R on the stand! Well done to a truly great man who embodies the very best of what this club is all about.
