How long can Dalglish’s feel-good-factor last at Liverpool?

|

Just how is Kenny Dalglish supposed to earn his long-term Liverpool contract?Stabilisation, confidence, Sexy football, new era and club principles are just some of the words being mentioned to coincide with King Kenny’s short six month reign as caretaker manager/manager, however the bigger question is can he sustain it over not only the next twelve months, but over the duration of his new three year contract given to him by the fans “saviours” Fenway sports group.

Kenny Dalglish is a winner, fans would argue the minimum is to equal Harry Redknapp who did a similar job with Tottenham taking them from relegation candidates at the start of the season to a top six finish followed by Champions league finish the season after. Liverpool fans will also look at the fact that Redknapp done this with no distractions of Europe, similar to the clubs current predicament.

Kenny Dalglish finished the season very impressively with figures to more than match top European coaches in Ferguson, Mancini, Wenger, Ancelotti and Redknapp.

Since Kenny took charge Liverpool finished with 33 points only three points behind Ancelotti and Ferguson who finished with 36 points. The much troubled early season away form was washed away with Dalglish earning 13 points despite playing a game less than Ferguson’s Manchester United who gained 12 points and lifted the premier league trophy.

The expectations have gone through the roof, mainly because fans are clinging and exaggerating next season’s results and trophy chances because they have had little to cheer about in a time where there was little enjoyment in attending games at the football cathedral that is Anfield.

Recent mass links to quality young English born players like Blackburn Rovers commanding centre back Phil Jones and Sunderland’s midfield general Jordan Henderson have exited the fans.

Already Signed Raheem Sterling, Alex O’Hanlon, Jonjo Shelvey, Danny Wilson and Suso Fernandez have whetted the appetite.  Liverpool’s fans previously had to endure the top young English and British talent slipping through their hands, as their was a continental focus on recruitment at the club.

Fenway sports would need to spend at least sixty million pound if they are to fulfil the fans and Dalglish’s expectation of not only improving the league position but challenging for the three major honours not to mention making sure they gain a place next year’s lucrative UEFA champion’s league tournament.

That is what is needed for the once superior club to regain its reputation across the world. Despite the ease at which such statements are dismissed inside the club, the feeling across the globe is that Liverpool Football club have to win trophies to take away the tarnish that has stuck to the club on and off the pitch within the last two football seasons.

    the feel good factor is a myth, what we feel is relief that everything is back to the way it should be, and the feeling of relief will grow into a crescendo of euphoria when we get the new signings up and playing kennys way wait and see this is the beggining of the new liverpool

    No wonder ThisisFutbol.com are seeking new writers to join the team! If this is the quality of the regular team. Our problems of the past few seasons were caused by poor directors, lack of investment and lying cheating American crooks.

    The future is bright with John Henry, Kenny and and the true fans.

    I do beleave kenny dalgish is the man to lead us to a successful season i just hope we bring in Scott Dann,Aaron Lennon, Jordon Henderson, Charlie Adam, Ashley Young and Connor Wickham. We then Should Sell Degen, Kyrgiakos,Konchesky,J Cole, Poulsen, Aqualini and Ngog to bring in the extra funds to help bring them in. Hopefully if this happens we should atleast come close or even win the league, o wait i almost forgot we should try changing to a 443 formation for example->
    Goalkeeper- Reina
    Defence- Johnson Carragher Dann Aurelio
    Midfield- Henderson Gerrard Adam
    Strikers- Lennon, Carroll, Young
    Subs- Jones Skrtel Agger Meireles Suarez Rodriguez etc.

      R u for real? Where is our player of the year. Oh,there are so many issues to raise with your ideas so I will not bother.

    • Dan says:

      Meireles and suarez on the bench??? Off ya head!!

      • Jack Colman LFC Fan says:

        mate it was just an example i would prefer Strikers Kuyt Carroll Suarez with meireles over henderson in mid, with lennon henderson young rodriguez on bench but i just wanted to name the players we bring in more its all about rotation after all to win matches against different teams.

    • M. says:

      Sorry, but I have to tell that you are biased (I am avoiding the word racist) to British players? You are trying to say that Henderson & Adams are better than the 2 regular starters of Brazil & Portugal? And an England back bencher is better than Luis Suarez up front?

      Have you seen the standard of England team where Henderson or Lennon can’t get even on the bench. Not to compare Scotland vs Portugal where both Adams & Raul are starters respectively. Just to add, Lucas played 70 mins. for BRAZIL against Holland last weekend.

    • Septimus_Red says:

      You obviously know nothing about football if you are going to put Suarez on the bench for Carroll.

      The Mad dash for British Players at the expense of quality foreign players is embarrassing and will not get into the CL places.

      If any of you have any doubt about the lack of quality in Britain tell me how many would get into the Spanish….Brazil or German national teams.

      STOP DELUDING YOURSELVES

      If you think Charlie Adams is anywhere near Alonso..Mascherno… then we deserve whats coming
