Does anybody think they haven't already gotten their man?
Seems to me this isn't some kneejerking from FSG, and that they now are implementing their plan after a (prolonged) assesment period.
The sacking of Comoli et al, and the swift dismissal of KK the day the season ended all points toward a bigger plan that is being executed know. Would be very surprised if they haven't sounded out their man months ago, and now only put up a show out of respect of Kenny and us (and maybe some employments laws i know nothing of), and is waiting the appropiate time to appoint him.
Kenny wasn't their man, or at least not manager, and to be honest if he hadn't been at the club when Rafa was binned, he probably wouldn't have been on a list of 25 possible candidates. Hodgson threatened to relegate us, so FSG had to react, they had not made their plan yet, so Kenny was an easy choice, and since avoiding relegation and maybe unify the club once again was the only real aim, a risk free one.
Kenny worked miracles and almost got us CL, so they simply had to give him some sort of chance. They still wasn't gambling on him, so they roughly gave him what was raised through playersales and what was saved on interest payment, they only risked a year, but gained time to really get a plan in place if the miracles didn't continue.
To some of us and probably and definately also to FSG (who know him as Kenny and not King) this season raised more question than it answered and since Dalglish originally didn't tick too many of the boxes of their idea of a manager, if any, they are implementing their plan.
First time they really show their hand, it is going to be exiting to see what they are about.
