As we get to the end of the season with only one game left against Aston Villa away on Sunday, Kenny Dalglish has told us that no matter what happens on Sunday, Liverpool have surpassed all expectations.
“They (the players) have played brilliantly since January, gone about their work and surpassed all expectations,” Dalglish said.
“We are dependent on other people now (to finish fifth) when we could have finished it but it has been a fantastic effort to get close.
“We can only look after ourselves.”
I agree with Dalglish 100%. Who can forget in early January when we were languishing at the bottom of the table and sitting just above the relegation zone? Some had even come out and said that Liverpool will do a Leeds and get relegated. To be honest, I was fearing the worst but thankfully Roy Hodgson was released by the club and Dalglish was appointed as manger to save us.
To be honest, in my own opinion, if it were not for Dalglish, we may not be where we find ourselves today. So credit is due to Dalglish for pulling us away from a relegation scrap to edging us to within a whisker of a Europa League place and if we had a few more games left in the season, who knows, we could have clinched a Champions League place.
