No Way To Treat A King
Kenny Dalglish has flown over to the States to meet Liverpool’s owners in Boston with speculation rife.
Liverpool’s owners should have cleared the air by issuing a statement to prevent the speculation surrounding Kenny’s trip over the pond.
With Liverpool’s league form so poor this season, the nation’s media is scaremongering that Dalglish could be axed.
No doubt this meeting in America is a pre-planned visit, not a showdown like the media would like it to be.
Dalglish will be given more time in charge, especially after steering Liverpool to two cup finals and bringing one trophy home to Anfield this season.
It would be ludicrous to sack Dalglish as he has brought the club some stability and has everyone pulling in the same direction.
The league form has suffered due to some bad luck in front of goal and some injuries to key players.
Gerrard was missing for the early part of the season and Lucas has been a massive loss for Kenny.
Suarez being banned was a big miss and his absence resulted in a disjointed strike force, with Suarez struggling a bit with his form on his return from his ban.
The number of new players added to the squad this season has made it difficult for the team too, as it takes time for players to gel into a new side.
Kenny just needs a couple of players and his team won’t be far away.
Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez are starting to look like a good partnership at last and this can only be promising for the new season.
Liverpool has always been a patient club with managers and the owners need to be patient again with Kenny as Rome wasn’t built in a day.
Liverpool have proved they can compete with the best, like when they beat Manchester City in the semi-final of the Carling Cup and when they beat Manchester United in the FA Cup.
They just need to get it right and find the consistency against the “lesser” clubs to improve their league position.
But to get rid of Dalglish would just cause mayhem at Liverpool with the supporters who back Dalglish, who would replace him, and the club would be unstable again, with so much insecurity once again.
So the American owners have to do the right thing and let Kenny continue his work and not get trigger happy in this situation.
The sooner Liverpool’s owners come out and issue a statement regarding Dalglish’s future, the better for all concerned, especially for the supporters, who deserve reassurance of Kenny’s future.
