Agreed, seeing one of my idols abuse one of my most hated institutions, the British media, will always warm my heart :)

before the game against the scum, which fell on his birthday, the king was asked whether he would invite Ferguson to a glass of wine.
"it's my birthday, he 'll have what everybody else gets".

see the complete inteview here:


couldn't find the clip of the kop singing happy birthday.

i won't defend him, don't need to.
he IS the King, what ever he does, wherever he goes, i'll follow.
No one is more important than the club, but if there was ever a man who comes close, that will be him.

Sacking him was a disgrace, something I still can't come to terms with, and fsg have truly lost me because of this. We'll never go anywhere with owners lacking the elementary intelligence to see that Kenny was the right man to stabilise the club, and to take us forward from there. All which was needed was a wee bit of patience and loyalty, which they failed to give to a man who was deserving more of it than anyone else.

Now, we all have to lay down in the bed they prepared for us, and I'm ready to bet that they will bitterly regret firing him before the end of this season, if that isn't already the case.

I for one regret him immensely, because of the overall class and quality of the man, but also because we lost a huge opportunity to go back to the top rapidly. Now, we'll have to wait a long, long time before we get anywhere near I'm afraid, probably after going through multiple gaffer changes, and also probably after fsg throw in the towel and leave the club to better owners...


(I'm a miserable bastard, I know, but I have never ever witnessed such a suicidal move from football club owners, and it just shows how much they lack any clue regarding LFC)


Also really really missing that wonderful thread we had with all his sharp and witty quotes.

come on guys, kenny will always be the king but i think it was a mistake to bring him back, sure he fired up the team initially but last season he lost it again and was making some quite erratic decisions.

just the fact that he calls him 'fergie' is enough for me.

Whilst I fully support Brendan, it was too soon to sack Kenny and subsequently Steve Clarke.

The man is, purely and simply, a legend. Right up there with Shanks and Paisley, and we sacked him. It's shameful any way you look at it.

Thanks for that video. What a legend he is!
What on earth were the owners thinking?

whether Kenny was the greatest manager in lfc history? hard to say, but everybody will agree he is up there with the best of them.
was he the greatest player to pull on the red shirt ? no one can say, but again he is right up there in the top 5 ( at least in my book ).

what makes him the king, is everything else.
never knew the story on Muamba. can't say i'm surprised, though.

One of our best managers!

One of our best players!

One of our best supporters!

In my opinion the best PERSON to ever be associated with our club hands down.

i remember the first game he came back as manager. first game back, losing 1-0 away at old trafford, with 10 men - not happy about the result.

everything about that man is liverpool. the attitude, the philsophy, the way he talks, everything that comes out of his mouth is liverpool football club. if someone knew nothing about football and wanted to understand our club all youd need to tell them to do is listen to kenny speak.

in response to one of the posts as to who was the greatest manager, shankly built the club, paisley was arguably the best manager (3 european cups, 1 uefa cup and 6 titles in 9 years) whilst arguably kenny created the greatest liverpool team ever in 88.

however kenny returning as manager was more than just an individual running the day to day affairs, picking the team etc... he was the figurehead that was re-introducing the style, philosophy and know how of shankly, paisley, moran, fagan. thats what many didnt seem to get.

for me thats what we lost and pisses me off the most by getting rid of him after 1 season. we lost the opportunity to tap into that knowledge and reintegrate our philosophy back into the club.

its like reopening a book that has the blueprint for success that was kept at the back of a cupboard, having it right in front of you, and then closing the book again after chapter one.

22 years away from the club, 1 season back, 2 cup finals and a trophy at the first attempt. sacked.

I have been asked that a lot since the HIP, here's my response ..

He should be recognized for his efforts during the time of the Hillsborough disaster and after, Kenny Dalglish has shown outstanding support to all of the families concerned in the disaster, he met with them, counseled them and told them they were not alone.
Kenny Dalglish attended many funerals of the victims including four in one day and was greatly praised for the dignity and compassion he showed in the aftermath of the tragedy.
Not only did he attend many of the lost fan's funerals, he also visited their families and offered support to them and offered them guidance in letting them know they would not walk alone. In the days following the tragedy the City united. Reds and blues came together. It is important to remember that not all of the 96 were from Liverpool. The wider Liverpool community came together as one. One Scotsman made sure nobody walked alone. The role of Kenny Dalglish in the aftermath of Hillsborough was immense. He carried a football club and a grieving city.

Since then, Dalglish has organized charity matches and rose awareness for 'justice for the 96' campaign which succeeded in the revelations of a police cover up on September the 12th 2012.

And also for this:



And... a very very tiny small part of me, and some of the thousands who have signed the petition, (as the initiator of the petition I have the great privilege to read the reasons they signed it) to see the look on FSGs collective faces when he is knighted. And after that I'm going to get Bob Paisley knighted posthumously!

Very emotional video. And that last part especially, about Henry 'he doesn't seem to understand this' (how Kenny is closely linked with the club and the fans, and how much we believed in him), and then 'we can do nothing about it'. It's heartbreaking to be honest.

That's why I have been writing about fans ownership today. If we were fans owned like Bayern or some other giant clubs, Kenny would still be in charge and we would most probably be happy buns all together, happy to give him the time he needed, happy to celebrate goals with him, chanting his song, listening to his unique and sharp wit during press conferences etc.

Oh well... :([/background]

I agree, I'm a American now, and as such I get embarrassed by some of FSGs actions, but also I'm still a Brit (dual Citizenship) and I can't imagine a person such as Ian Ayre running a football club, so I get doubly charged up about the goings on at Anfield.

That bold part is very subjective these days Hope....

I still blame the players, till the day I die, I blame the players for his departure more so than the owners themselves. Here's one that the players we had don't get the hint....

I can't.

Worse than attending a funeral of a loved one, that video.

I need to collect my thoughts.

I need to think of happy moments. That moment when we won the CC.

The FAC semi against Everton.

And my most cherished moment with my son, watching us in the FAC Final.

Thank you Sir Kenny.
