Yes, it is completely fair to say those 2 league games were meaningless. Kenny Dalglish was sacked long before two games coming off the back of a cup final which had no baring on anything in terms of, well, anything.
And again, you are taking Kenny for an idiot. Gerrard has, as reported, been taking painkilling injections to get through games he shouldn't have been playing in. Him not playing in the last 2 games was only good for Liverpool, nothing else. Kenny Dalglish realized this, any fan without an agenda knows this. I'm happy our captain missed our last 2 games, games he didn't need to play in, so that he can a) captain his country, a great honour for him, if not you and b) remain fit ahead of the Euros and come back to us fresher than if he had not had an extra week off
