With Liverpool owner’s John Henry and Tom Werner due in England later this week for the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Everton on Saturday, it is believed that there will be something of a show-down between the owners and Manager Kenny Dalglish.
An end-of-season report is required of the Anfield boss by FSG, who must be very concerned at Liverpool’s dismal Premiership performances this Season.
Here is what Kenny may say in his defence of his reign:
I have engaged in a major re-building process, bringing in good young British players who will stand us in good stead in future years.
A lot of my key players have been injured for long parts of the Season; Steven Gerrard, Lucas Leiva, Glen Johnson, Daniel Agger, Martin Kelly and Charlie Adam.
We have had some very bad luck, hitting the wood-work 34 times this year.
Luis Suarez being harshly banned for eight games didn’t help us.
If we win two cups, it will have been a sucessful Season.
I need more funds to buy new players to finish the rebuilding job here at Liverpool.
This may well be a convincing argument to keep the job at Anfield, however the owners of Boston Red Sox demanded 4th place as ‘a minimum requirement’ for this Season.
With Liverpool sitting joint 8th alongside Fulham and Norwich, which is totally unacceptable, Kenny may aswell just hold up his hands and say:
“Sorry John and Tom, I wasted £100 million on crap players.”
