Kenny Dalglish is having a tough time at Liverpool at present
Kenny Dalglish is adamant Liverpool will stick together in order to arrest their slump in form.
Dalglish has brought silverware to the club this year in the form of the Carling Cup, while they are still in the hunt for the FA Cup, but their Premier League campaign has fizzled out on the back of a dismal run of form.
Defeat to Newcastle on Sunday has left the Reds 16 points shy of fourth place and the run has left some questioning Dalglish's position at the club.
Dalglish is aware of the problems but feels he has the players to turn the club into a Premier League force.
"I just think we have got to stick together," Dalglish said. "They (the players) will stick together because they want to get it right, and the best way to do it is to stick together and believe in what they are doing.
"It's not as if they don't work hard, it's not as if they don't have the determination and effort to put it right.
"It's up to us to harness the frustration and disappointment properly, work on it and take it as a positive because if they start to enjoy losing games, we'd have a problem."

King kenny for me is very loyal and commited to his job at lfc. But he is using very old tactics like his old times. the game is much faster and multidimentional. his signings are not very good either, so his knowledge looks to be not up to date. he might get things better but at this pace it is going to take 3 to 4 seasons least, which i think gerrard etc dont have in them to wait for the title.
Do the players look at the game, after the match and learn from their mistakes.
I wonder if they would buck up their ideas if they were on performance rated pay.
For the wages they receive, they should play top class and behave like sportsmen, liverpool players in the past were the top of the league, but there seemed to be a different belief in the game. Nowadays players have big egos. Some young local Liverpool Lad would love to play for this team given half a chance, and for less money.
Sorry Kenny you made liverpool a cup team but a mediocre mid table league team. I said it in the summer that we should have reappointed RAFA instead of Kenny. Had Benitez been given £128 million to spend he would have got us players like : Alonso, Torres, Mascherano, Pepe, Arbeloa, Lucas...etc instead we have another load of dead wood hendo, adam, carol, downing...etc.
RAFA still lives in Liverpool, PLease Mr Henry Bring back the master tactician who humuliated Alex Fergusson at Old Trafford and kept us for years in Champions league (2 finals, 2 semis, 1 quarter...etc), FA cup, Only team to finish second with 86pts behind Man U of Ronaldo, Tevez, Rooney, Giggs, Scholes..etc.
Sorry Kenny u need to go.
kenny should get rid of dead wood like henderson and carrol, ever since carra has played we have lost, he has passed it now and should leave it to the younger ones,too slow for this type of football. stick with kuyt on wing or as a forward, carrol just a six foot bag of c###, should have been shot on sunday looking for a foul. got passed keeper then fell over SHOCK . should try scoring .
WOW ...after reading all these posts how can we be in so much trouble with all this fantastic football knowledge at our disposal? I suggest you all get on the phone today to Melwood and let Kenny and Steve into all your wisdom.
"We need a clearout and sign 5 better players"... Oh my lord thats just brilliant, brilliant how long did it take you to think that one up?
Corluka, Pavlyuchenko, Modric, Bale, Kaboul, Assou-Ekotto, Berbatov all players who have helped spurs get where they are now and some of these would fetch a great price if sold...just look at Berbatov. This is the side of the coin that some fans forget....the book is still open on Comolli as far as i'm concerned.
The rest of your post is hard to argue against. Although we should have had a pen no Sunday with Newcastle possibly down to ten....this was a crucial decision as Newcastle scored against the run of play and their second was offside. Any wonder our heads went down.
I don't see 'winning' teams giving in. The Australian cricket team doesn't give in. Manchester United don't give in. If Liverpool is giving in, because of its 'lack of confidence', they might as well give up now. What are they hoping for - that someone's going to hand it to them?
Get real. (That's aimed at the team, not at you John.)
Mrs Dalglish will be begging Kenny to call it a day, she doesnt want him cracking up again,
"Kenneth ! get back in this house NOW !" do it K, play golf ,chill.
Manchester United : WWWWWWW
Manchester City : WWWLWDD
Chelsea : LWLWLDW
Liverpool : ROFLMAO
