I’m torn, I mean seriously torn, about whether Kenny should be given the opportunity to stay for another year to show exactly what he can or cannot do at Anfield. I just don’t want to have to suffer another season of frustration and disappointment like the one we just had to endure, especially in the league, and be no better off 12-months from now and fall even further behind the likes of Man City and Man United.

So the wait is over. Liverpool have won their first major trophy in six years and the League Cup for a record eighth time and it feels damn good. It wasn’t easy of course, Liverpool finals never are, but this one is hugely significant, especially as Dalglish has managed to win silverware in his first full-year as manager. It’s a tremendous achievement for Kenny who becomes only one of seven managers to have won all three of England’s domestic competitions. And the critics wondered if Kenny still had it. Anyone questioning him now?
I’m also not buying any arguments from other teams supporters that it’s “only the Carling Cup”. (more…)

It’s an obvious and critical question. It’s one all Liverpool supporters have been asking themselves since the beginning of the season. Qualification for the Champions League, the only European tournament to be involved in, puts Liverpool back amongst the footballing elite plus it’s worth millions in additional revenue. I’m pretty sure a top four finish was the minimum target set by John Henry and Tom Werner at the beginning of the season. I mean they will have a new stadium to fill and pay for after all.

I’ve been a strong advocate for Kenny Dalglish to become the “permanent” manager even before Rafa departed in the summer (click here to see May article). Who else was better qualified, had a better track record and knew how to get the club back to being run the Liverpool way? No one.
Well, according to the Sunday Express & the Daily Star the great news is Dalglish becoming the permanent manager is going to become a reality within the next few weeks as negotiations between Dalglish, Henry and Werner have been taking place. (more…)

Kenny Dalglish has turned things around at Anfield way beyond anyones expectations. This was crowned (pun intended) by Liverpool’s fantastic 1-0 win over Chelsea yesterday which just a few weeks ago would have seemed impossible to imagine.
Dalglish has taken Liverpool from 12th in the league to 6th and now all the talk is that we’re challenging for a top 4 spot vs. relegation, as was the case under Roy Hodgson. (more…)

Like the majority of Liverpool supporters I was delighted when NESV purchased the club. Finally, intelligent, savvy business people who knew how to create a winning sports team. Within hours of taking ownership John Henry’s mantra was he and his team were going to listen to Liverpool supporters and learn.
My question is: “Are you listening now Mr. Henry?”
Roy Hodgson’s appointment as manager was surprising to say the least. Many felt he was likely a stop-gap while the ownership situation was sorted out as no manager of any pedigree would accept the job without knowing the future of the club. However, I for one was willing to give him a chance to prove what he was capable of. That was the right & fair thing to do. But now we have the proof and it’s not good, in fact it’s disastrous and so John Henry and Tom Werner et al need to show they are listening to the collective voice of the Liverpool supporters and act quickly.
Roy Hodgson isn’t the right manager to take Liverpool forward. Instead of blaming the greatest supporters of any sports team in the world, never mind Liverpool, Hodgson needs to take responsibility for the current situation and move on but most importantly NESV need to show us they are the real deal and do what’s best for Liverpool FC and act now.
