Friends Of Liverpool

With the sad departure of Kenny Dalglish from Liverpool today, Liverpool’s owners FSG are looking to appoint a new Manager as soon as possible.

Among the early candidates are:

Roberto Martinez of lowly Wigan.
Paul Lambert of Norwich.
Brendan Rogers of Swansea.
Rafa Benitez, former Reds boss.
Fabio Capello, highly successful manager.
While it is sad to see Kenny Dalglish go, he is, to some extent, the author of his own downfall.
The failure to bring in a quality forward in the January transfer window when the team badly needed one is possibly the biggest mistake in his 18 months in charge.
He persevered with Andy Carroll at the cost of goals, wins and points that would have guided Liverpool up the table and would have kept Dalglish in his job.

The fact that Carroll, belatedly found his form is of no consequence to Kenny now.
Anyway, looking to the next Liverpool Manager, the 4th in 2 years, I would go for Fabio Capello.

His CV as a manager is impeccable, he has won the League title with every club he has managed.
He won 4 Seria A titles with AC Milan and a Champion’s League v Barcelona in 1994.
He joined Real Madrid and they won La Liga in his first season there.
He then went to AS Roma and won them their first League title in 18 years.
He won the League twice with Juventus.
He returned to Real Madrid and they won the League again in 2006.

He has amassed Seven Titles in 16 years around Europe and said only last week that he would love to return to England and manage in the Premier League again.

So John and Tom, if you are watching, sign Capello up to the Liverpool job as swiftly as possible.
