A win in the Carling Cup could not save Kenny Dalglish's job at Liverpool after their poor league showing. Liverpool finished eight in the league which was one of their lowest finishes and only for the second time in the Premier League era they finished behind derby opponents, Everton. Of course, Liverpool did have great cup runs winning the Carling Cup and reaching the finals of the FA Cup losing to Chelsea. What do you think of the sacking? And who do you think will replace Kenny? Cheers! Ram

yes, i think it was unfair for Kenny Daglish.. give the time for King kenny.. who can be blamed if King kenny only get a second player?? he only get 1 or two worldclass player like Sebastian coates and Luis suarez.. with respect, i think stewart downing, charlie and adam are not the worldclass player which can give many contribution for liverpool

Yes, the summer transfer dealings were not great. Add to that his big money signing Carroll had a very poor year in the Liverpool shirt. These in the end cost Kenny his job. Cheers! Ram

I believe that Carroll is only beginning to shine in a team which he is taking some time to adapt to. He did make some heroic acts towards the end of the season and in the FA Cup final though Liverpool was unable to get pass the Chelsea's defence. There are more disappointing big-name signings who did not live up to expectations.

So they want to keep Suraez but not the manager? Ok! will this help? Unless this manager can get the Whole club to work as one , next year they will be in the same position!

Personally I do not think it was a great move. I thought King Kenny should have been given one more year. Of course, I will admit, that the year was really disappointing for Liverpool especially at home. Now we need to see who takes this position. Cheers! Ram

Liverpool manager job is one of the top managerial positions in football. It is akin to managing LA Lakers in the NBA. Currently ex-Chelsea manager Andreas Villas Boas seems to be the firm favorites for the job as he was interviewed last year, but fan pressure made the club make Kenny the manager. So now the owners get their chance to put in their first choice manager at the helm. Cheers! Ram

Obviously as a Liverpool fan, like many others out there, I was sad to see a legend walk through the doors faster than he entered the great halls of Liverpool. The owners do not share the same views as the supporters who believe that he needs more time to prove that he is able to bring the team up to a higher level. But poor league results, and an 8th placing in the standings, have caused Dalglish to lose his job. Hopefully, the owners will seriously consider Rafa Benitez. He will certainly be glad to return.

I differ with your opinion. I hope they do not consider Rafa again. I thought Liverpool disintegrated under Rafa rather than improve and what we see is because of a lack of a long term vision during his tenure. How about Pep Guardiola? :) Cheers! Ram

great teams need great expectation, n if manager in great expectation can not give it, better to be sacked the exchange will be manager from middle club, i still cannot predict it, coz great manager will need a lot of cash, like maurinho, fergie, or guardiola..

Actually, this might be one job Guardiola might take up after the Barca job. Liverpool is a great club with a great history. It has a great academy and fan following. So this could be one job Guardiola could be interested in. Cheers! Ram

Liverpool had a torrid season despite them winning the Carling Cup and reaching the final of the FA Cup. The fact that Everton finished above them does not help. When KK was appointed as the manager, the fans will hail the return of Kop's favourite. After spending almost 100million pounds, the fans has every right to expect them to be challenging for the league title. But the new players failed to live up to expectation. Thou the sacking is a surprise, one would have see that coming. As for the replacement, a few names have been suggested, Roberto Martinez, Rafa Benitez, Andre-Villa Boas, Jurgen Klopp. And apparently, Martinez is on the way to US to meet the club owners.

Yes, finishing 8th was really unacceptable and to boot finishing below Everton really hurt. But having said so, I would still have thought one more season was due for Kenny. But in the modern game, patience is one virtue which is no longer there. Cheers! Ram

The King is dethroned? I am sorry to see him go. He is a great icon of the game and especially Liverpool. I feel for the Liverpool fans who are sad with the sacking. It may be inevitable with the dismayed league results they got. Great cup runs or even winning the League Cup didn't help brushing away the sense of failure in the club. They were a good team that could fight any team in the world as can be seen from their early season results when they beat a few top teams. But their inability to win consistently was the blow that got Dalglish down and eventually, out. Andre Villas-Boas is rumored to be one of the leading candidates to replace Dalglish, with the likes of Martinez and Lambert. Who knows, even Capello may even be courted. I prefer AVB to take over. I just feel that he is the right man.

Carragher has come out with a statement that he is very sad to see Kenny leave. I think the Liverpool old timers players and fans feel the same. I think at the least he deserved at least one more year at the helm. Yes, now the search is on for the successor and yes AVB would be high on the list. Cheers! Ram
