Is it me or is King Kenny beginning to look a bit suspect on his Mersyside throne? First the blatant lie regarding the Suarez handshake that never was in the Man United game when he ‘never knew he never shook his hand’. At that same match he alone in the whole world somehow failed to register the altercation in the tunnel at half time.
If the Suarez affair has not done enough damage to the reputation of a great club does Kenny really need to be stoking the famous siege mentality at Anfield? Well, with his latest outburst against another of his peers it appears he does.
Arsene Wenger has complained that Suarez had dived to get the penalty against Arsenal earlier this month suggesting that the Liverpool striker went down too easily and made a feast of the incident by rolling around like a stricken tart (or words to that affect). Now, like a schoolboy running to the teacher, Dalglish wants the FA to take action.
I remember Dalglish as a player, a fearless man who would carelessly throw himself into the fray, he witnessed the horror of the Ibrox and Hillsborough disasters and has faced tough times in his personal life and nobody would question his bravery. How disappointing then that it should be him who denies the opportunity to tell the truth?
Too many managers ‘have their view obscured’ when a contentious decision goes in their favour only to have amazing telescopic clarity when the reverse is true and Wenger certainly has ‘previous’ in this context. How refreshing would it be to hear a manager damning the play-acting and downright cheating of his own players? If we are to be rid of this curse surely the answer must start at the top and shouldn’t that mean the king?
Kenny Dalglish was a great player at Liverpool and also previously a great manager there but if its one thing people dont like its the manager who sees no bad that his team does but everything wrong that a player or team does to his team or players. He is heading towards the Scottish version of Wenger.
