It is just my own personal expression of (some of) the esteem and affection I have for Kenny Dalglish. No more and no less. It came out the way it did in a big tumble.. I'm not religious, but I do consider Kenny Dalglish the nearest thing I will have to a God. And it was because a few were taking the usual snide digs at the man, then ducking. Well, they blew my cover so I shot back. And got a warning off a great mod. But I was angry. How dare these people consider they can bollock Kenny Dalglish?? Its fucking appalling behaviour. The 3 greatest disasters in British football, and he was present at each and every one... as an apprentice, player, then manager.
Religious or not, that gives me a chilling feeling. Is he something even more than we lucky ones think?
To be honest, I feel sorry for those who criticise him. Truly I do. They must never have been lucky enough to see what he did, or else they really have no joy in their hearts. And furthermore, they can't even learn from the lessons of our own very recent history. To me, this combination warrants pity as much as anger.
Fats, you know i didn't want the man to take on the permanent job either. You and me discussed as much at the time. He was a patsy, and this was always going to happen. Fortunately his Legend does appear to have survived. Thats the greatest thing of all.
And to the usual suspects (Montys, Doc, Fats, John mac, Roy,viva, kdorg I'm adding you, as well as others), thanks for your kind words. Don't derail it, its just my thoughts. I tried to attack nobody, I can do that other places.
