No matter whether or not he was the right man (he wasn't) he did not deserve the downright viscous, bitter and disgusting vitriol that he had to put up with.
The man, rightly or wrongly, was chosen as manager of this club and to see what he was subjected to was, quite frankly embarrassing and disgusting coming from so called Liverpool fans. We stooped to Newcastle-esque levels and it has left a bitter taste in my mouth over the way that the campaign against him was waged and how some have conducted themselves on here and elsewhere.
That said, I have and always will be a devotee of Kenny and welcome him back with open arms. He has always been and always will be the greatest player and manager we have every had in my eyes, but I have a horrible feeling that some on here will turn on him if things don't turn around overnight, as I am getting the feeling that a lot on here think that Kenny is a guaranteed Silver Bullet for all the ills with this club - he's not. He will improve things, but I believe that what Kenny stands for will not be taken on by some of the players in the squad and will make his job difficult. I hope I am wrong, but there are some players that are seemingly very powerful and have their own agendas. Kenny will root them out, but how long will it take to right and get the side to gel?
Bear in mind, he is only here on a contract until the end of the season and as such, I don't expect that he will have the free reign that people are expecting to bring in players/staff/etc. Time will tell of course, but all Hail King Kenny and Roy - I hope that you get back into management again and all the best for the future - you were the wrong man at the wrong club, but you didn't deserve what you got.
