Liverpool To Confirm Kenny Dalglish As Manager ‘Within 10 Days’

Word on broadsheet street this afternoon is that Liverpool are all but set to offer Kenny Dalglish the full-time manager’s gig at Anfield, with the Independent going as far as reporting that the news should be forthcoming at some point within the next ten days.

The consensus seems to be that a contract is all but drafted, though there are still a couple of loose ends that need tying up – with Dalglish apparently adamant that he should have the final say on the club’s transfer dealings and John Henry and co. not so keen to hand over the purse strings.

However, the Indy also reckon that, because the King has transformed Liverpool from a bunch of bumbling clouts into a half-way watchable side in the space of five months, it’s almost a foregone conclusion that the Scot will get his way before next weekend rolls around.

Kenneth’s full-time appointment may have been an inevitability after such a grueling start to the season anyway, but I suspect that this may be sweet, sweet music (think The La’s crossed with Echo & The Bunnymen crossed with Shack) to the ears of the red-hued Scousers of this world.

    If this is true, and not just tabloid gumph, ABOUT BLOODY TIME!

  2. Red Peter says:

    Mad love for the Shack reference. One of the most criminally underrated bands of the late 80s/early 90s, just ask Noel Gallagher.

  3. SuaRed says:

    I don’t get it! Why do we need to confirm Dalglish now? He’s caretaker manager until the end of the season. He doesnt want to go anywhere else. If we confirm him in the summer after the season ends it will give everybody a massive lift going into next seaason which will help us hit the ground running!

    Lets not lt the press dictate to us when we should install the king as manager full time. Like Kenny says! When we got something toi tell the press we’ll let them know!
