    Dalglish to hold talks with Anfield owners at end of season over Kop future

    Talks: Kenny Dalglish will discuss his Anfield future at the end of the season
    |

    Kenny Dalglish has revealed will discuss his Anfield future with the club's owners at the end of the season.

    The Scot, who is not under any immediate pressure from Americans John Henry and Tom Werner, will keep to his pre-planned schedule of assessing the Reds' season once the Barclays Premier League is over despite Saturday's 2-1 FA Cup final defeat to Chelsea.

    With the Merseyside outfit anchored in mid-table, their final two matches - against Chelsea at Anfield on Tuesday and at Swansea next Sunday - will have nothing at stake but pride.

    However, there will be no summit meeting with Henry to discuss a season which has brought some silverware in the Carling Cup.

    But while Dalglish failed to get the Reds nearer to breaking back into the Premier League's elite, it is understood he will be given more time to turn his team into top-four challengers.

    'The owners will do the same as us,' said Dalglish.

    'They will sit and analyse the season when it is finished.

    'That is what we said before a ball was kicked and there is no reason to change that.'

    The major positive for Liverpool on Saturday was the performance of substitute Andy Carroll, who almost managed to turn the game on its head.

    Carroll scored one excellent goal, when he turned John Terry inside out before rifling past Petr Cech, came agonisingly close to grabbing an equaliser and then had a shot turned away by Branislav Ivanovic that would have brought the Merseysiders level.

    It was a performance that is sure to have been filtered back to new England boss Roy Hodgson.

    And allowed Dalglish to underline exactly how much faith he has in the much-maligned forward.

    'We have been happy with what big Andy has done since he came to Liverpool,' said the Scot.

    'If the ones who were critical of him are going to be fair and honest, they might have to re-write their pieces.

    'If they don't want to do that, fine. It's not my problem.

    'It doesn't change our opinion. He came on and lifted the team. He got the goal and was unlucky not to get another one.'

    BR: "other priorities" meant Liverpool did not follow through interest in Depay

    Rodgers on Depay: "It wasn't something we were ever interested in. We already have 4 wingers at the club. We have other priorities."

    Rodgers on striker search: "Young Divock coming in will be a great asset for us. We will see what the summer brings."

  3. I obviously disagree. It doesn't excuse the abject shitness of our season but it paints a picture and goes a long way to helping people understand why we were so shit. Lamenting what we didn't/don't have is pointless when looking at the causes. Hindsight is always 20/20, we should've recruited better - there's only so many times we can go over that, everyone is in agreement.

     

     

    But we never learn from it.

     

    We knew what we wanted going into the summer, we pissed the money up the wall.

    We knew what we needed in the winter, we didn't spend a penny.

     

    How many times have we gone into a transfer window knowing what we needed, yet getting everything but what we needed.

     

    We're stuck on repeat.
