Dallgish will not be the one deciding on his fate. That would be in the hands of FSG. He will most probably get one more season though the way he and Comolli spend their money will certainly be much more scrutinised and questioned this time, if the owners had a smidgeon of sense, which they certainly do.
See,it may so happen that we finish woefully in the league and win the FA cup.Dalglish could easily step down,citing the 2 trophies and some steadiness as success.And we can be grateful for his role in the transition,and for preventing us from getting relegated under Roy.That wouldnt be a bad thing to do.
Although another season wouldnt be bad at all,but how much money he gets is another big question.If we have to continue with this team next season,another 9-12th place finish may well be on the cards and we may not even have success in the cups.
It could be pleasantly surprising if Kenny and DC are given money,and asked to clear out the mediocre dross and change strategy.Think it could very well work,because the fault is more with the players than with the manager.
A manager capable of winning thrice at the Bridge,twice against United,at the Emirates,Etihad,and leading us to a cup win and possibly another cant be bad at all.His players havent done the job,and the newcomers have done fuck all.Infact a certain player sold in August did more in 3 months than the expensive flops have done all season,combined.
So if the owners give him the chance to change the strategy which is now Buy British,and give him time,it may well work out.
But our freefall in the league may leave Kenny in a position where he might have to take an ultimate step himself.He is too legendary a figure to not admit that things went wrong in the league.Given the chance to manage next year,I dont think he'll refrain from removing underperforming players.
