Kenny Dalglish, King Kenny, Our famous number 7.
He’s an emperor, a football man from the days when football was about two things solely, Football, and the fans. Us. He’s bought back the joy to Liverpool FC in the short time he’s been back in charge with us.
That joy is what I believe the majority of fans wanted. That buzz back, that buzz that fills the Kop, the city of Liverpool and the heart of every single passionate supporter out there. A dark cloud has floated over magnificent fortress for the last couple of years, and suddenly, in a matter of days not months those clouds are dispersing and that familiar feeling is seeping back into the hearts of the Reds.
Suarez, Carroll, our two new men both quite obviously want to be here, and that’s what its all about, Kenny bringing that passion and aura back to Liverpool, the world’s very best want to play for us and we’ll greet them with open arms. If Kenny and Steve Clarke can’t get the best out of these 2, no one can and I thoroughly expect them to be lighting up the Premiership for many years to come.
Familiar faces, Gerrard, Carragher, Lucas, Agger and Kuyt all seem to be reinvigorated and it is quiet obvious that passion is flowing fully through every single player at Liverpool. Poulsen, the much maligned CDM has said he wants to become a great player with us, that is the sort of spirit we want at our club, especially after the time he’s had, which in all honesty and I’m sure he’ll admit it himself hasn’t been great. Yet he wants to reignite his Reds career and I for one will be behind him every second of the way. Kenny… again… PASSION.
Mereiles, where do I begin, the Portuguese is on fire, the Liverpool fire that resides above our great crest. Wonderful performances from a brilliant player. Yet there on the bench with a wry smile, is Kenny Dalglish, the man who can surely be partly thanked for this, Roy signed him and we must thank him for that (I’m no Roy hater, he just was not right for our club but is an absolute Gentleman and I wish him all the luck in the world at the Hawthorns) but Kenny has re inspired Raul in a magnificent way.
With Kenny and his team I see a future that can be great and can be Red. It’s too early to guarantee success, but the foundations have been built, and with the backing of our New owners (whose influence in this cannot be underestimated either) NESV/Fenway I think we can have an amazing Liverpool Red future. Whatever happens, that passion is back among us, and I for one haven’t been this happy or excited about the prospect of my club in years. Kenny the emperor.
