Dave, I'm not singling you out or meaning to be inflammatory... but in your last post you said about Kuyt "should not be sentimental". What was the reason we all (me included) clammoured for dalglish's return to management with us... admit it, it was sentiment! It certainly was on my part.
Ive been like a dog with a bone on this, I'm going to try to step away from it now. NOT EASY!!!
Actually Spittle, I was not one who was overly vocal to have Dalglish return. Kenny is a personal hero to me, as his first arrival at the club as a player was only a year or so after as a kid I started really taking an interest in football and because my best mate was a Scouser becoming a fan of LFC.
I really did worry, even as a grown man, that my childhood hero would in some how be tarnished if he took on the job which was always going to be hard.
But once he took the job, he had my full support, not out of sentiment but for two simple reasons. First any manager is going to get a good helping of honeymoon time from me (I tried to support Roy longer than most on here) as I believe in loyalty. But second, I do honestly think he's moved us forward on multiple fronts. It maybe hard to be as critical because of sentiment, but the improvements made I think are concrete.
