Kenny Dalglish has been sensationally sacked by Liverpool football club following a miserable run of form since he took over. Since taking up the reins at Anfield on Saturday the Reds have lost against their arch rivals Manchester United, not scored a goal and had their captain sent off in every match.
“The time had come for a change” said American owner John Henry. “We had a negative score early in the first quarter when they got one in the score bag to make it one zip. Our goal tender had no chance from the penalty play from offensive hitman Brian Giggs. Then our ringleader Stefan Gerrard got a Card Red rejection for stud checking. Our speed play wasn’t in the hit zone and as Manchester had a shut out I went to our locker room and told the Top Coach he was fired.”
Fellow owner Mike Ashley, Chairman of Newcastle football club explained how he would have done things differently. “I wouldn’t have let things drag on as long as they did. I’d have nipped it in the bud at and sacked him at half time. He’d had a full 45 minutes to turn the team around and that should be ample.
Other managers, however, claimed the situation was farcical and that they should be given more time to turn around a team’s fortunes. Harry Redknapp said “I’m as sick as a parrot about this, it’s a funny old game and we take it one match at a time, but that is all Kenny has been given. By the way do you know what won the 2.30 at Ascot?”
