King Kenny's suffering will soon be over
KENNY DALGLISH paid a heavy price for slagging off the ref during Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Aston Villa.
His punishment is that he has to be in the dug-out for Tuesday's visit to Blackburn.
King Kenny’s return to Ewood Park will doubtless end with more points being dropped and more officials being criticised, though the only saving grace for Dalglish is that his suffering will soon be over.
It’s long odds-on that the campaign finishes before Kenny gets the chop but I doubt he’ll still be at the club come pre-season.
The only bright note forthe Liverpool chief is that Blackburn are back to being about as dependable as Lee Westwood’s putter and having hinted at something of a mid-season revival they’ve reverted to their former selves in a determined bid to stay in the relegation fight.
But then there’s the officials. They’re bound to play a part because Kenny’s getting miffed by the lot of them. He doesn’t mind the ones who get conned left, right and centre bythat diving centre forward he has got, just the ones who are on duty when they drop points.
Liverpool are definitely too short given the form they’re in though I couldn’t have Blackburn at any price.
Usually in times of crisis Stevie G steps up to the plate so I’ll have a bit of him to open the scoring.
