As we wait this morning to find out if Roy Hodgson is going to get the sack and who would take over from him, I have been going down memory lane and thinking of the possibility of Kenny Dalglish taking over from Roy Hodgson until the end of the season.
Dalglish’s last game as manager of Liverpool was in an FA Cup tie against Everton. The game ended 4-4 and will go down as one of the greatest FA Cup games ever. It was a shock to all of us when we heard after that game that Kenny had decided to step down. Now 20 years later, we have the prospect of Kenny coming back and taking over the reigns again.
If Hodgson is to be sacked in the next day or two and Dalglish is the man taking over, then Kenny would have his first game in-charge of Liverpool on Sunday as we take on Manchester United in the FA Cup. There is no better game for Dalglish to be in-charge of on his return than against the old enemy in the FA Cup.
So if Dalglish is in-charge come Sunday, wouldn’t it be a pleasure to have another 4-4 classic, or better yet a win at Old Trafford to kick start our season again.
Going down memory lane, I found a video with the highlights of that amazing 4-4 game courtesy of YouTube user tonyyeboah08.
