The irony of what he has to say is so sweet. Lecturing fans that they should be grateful when their team spends nothing on an under-sized squad, this coming from somebody who put Liverpool on its knees with a disastrous few months in the transfer market.
Excuse my French, but on Saturday I found myself experiencing an episode of Deja Vu. Only the location differed. This time the venue was St James’, not Anfield. It was the teamsheet that gave it away. I saw that we were fielding six defensive-minded players. I knew I had seen this before somewhere, Dabizas playing in midfield if I remember rightly.
Dalglish succeeded Keegan as a player at Liverpool and then ruined the team that Kevin built as manager at St.James’ Park. It is little comfort that he may have possibly done an even worse job at Anfield.
I don’t go for this ‘Liverpool fans should have the final say on standing in football grounds’ as they stand as much, if not more than anyone. How many sat down at Wembley the other week and how many will be seated in St James’ on Sunday?
‘Fraser Forster looks ungainly and can be a bit slow off his line but on the flip side he has a growing presence and is a surprisingly agile shot-stopper. He’s had plenty of critics among our support but he’s really won them round this year’.
