OT: "Kenny"

Finished watching the doco "Kenny". Wow!

As a teenager during the 80's, 3 of my best mates were Liverpool fans - was a very tough time as a United supporter :lol: . Regardless, you simply had to admire that Liverpool side. Nothing more ... they were in a class of their own.

On the man ... Incredible footballer with a sublime touch. Superb manager too. He also appears to be an amazing man - amazing couple actually he and his wife! Another wow! Blessed, deserved so, to have a family like that too.

On the doco ... it was very, very well done! Was not expecting the emotional roller coaster ride - will be honest. I remembered watching the Hillsborough semi-final - from afar on telly. Couldn't quite understand initially what was going & later it was somewhat surreal seeing/hearing what had happened. Still haunting seeing the images today. Watching them discuss this ... in his own words ... won't lie - had tears in my eyes - minutes after the doco ended still.

Highly recommend it, for any football fan. Fantastic watch. No matter what rivalry there may be, you simply cannot but respect Kenny Dalglish.

    "Got what he deserved".

    Are you aware that he was playing during the Heysel disaster? That he watched on as manager during the Hillsborough disaster? He then attended numerous funerals and acted as a go between the club and the families?

    I'd suggest he's probably never managed to get over what he's been through thanks to football and that would afford him a little respect for any decisions he's made since then.

    All the players he's ever managed loved him, he's won leagues and cups, he was a quality player.

    To suggest he's a small time manager just simply shows how uneducated you are when it comes to football in all honesty.

    @Vinny1979 ... go watch it before commenting further.

    Not one of us is perfect, but the Hillsborough disaster is a tragedy, regardless. Heysel too. This shows how much he was affected by this, and resigned a year-odd later.

    Superb doc, saw it when it first came out. A hero of mine when I was a kid. Probably Scotlands last world class player.

    Yeah I know all about it

    You never got Sir Matt Busby pulling silly stunts like that, Bobby Charlton, Bill foulkes, Harry Gregg, proper football men, these guys survived the Munich Air disaster, taking nothing away from other disasters but what these guys went through,

    They kept their counsel, Dalglish was always a bitter person even when young.

    Suarez incident was hard to swallow

    Kenny looks like a homeless dude, he lost it towards the end and was righly sacked / quit (2nd liverpool stint)

    never got over liverpool being knocked off their perch by utd

    :)

    talking of heysel, I also recall the "munich 58" flags on display during the match

    so

    Again, watch it.

    Just remember that the media will do everything to make people in these positions, look worse than what it is.

    Man you proper hate this guy. Fact is he was the best player in a Liverpool team that was the best team in Europe for years. Won the 3 European Cups ffs. Didn't really get a shot at winning in europe as manager due to the English clubs ban. Sill won plenty though.

    Thing is Man Utd were still to win the league for first time since the 60s when Dalglish resigned. Certainly weren't knocked off any perch in his time. He clearly had never got over Hillsborough, didn't look well when he left. Going to every single funeral and seeing what he saw would have a lasting affect in anyone. Did not bad at Blackburn when he came back though.

    About a month back I was walking home from my parents house an I saw this old chap with his grandson on his shoulders, I gave the little guy a high five and continued to walk. I then looked back to say what a great grandson he had.

    A double take an in complete shock I said "You are Kenny Dalglish!"

    I've met some famous people in my time and never been that star struck lol, we had a little chat and he was gracious to let me have a selfie. Of which he helped me do because I hadn't done one before as the camera was the wrong way round haha.

    Despite being a United fan he's a legend end of.

    I had to tell him I was a big fan of his mate Sir Alex.

    He did chuckle, I expected to be a wee bit dour, fair play though he was a gent.

    Turns out his daughter lives up the road from me.

    His footballing achievements aside, what he did for the Hillsborough families make him a legend in his own right.

    Him and his wife do a hell of a lot for charity as well. How that man's not been knighted I do not know.


    That's before you even consider that he was the best player in one of the best club teams ever, and one of the few successful player managers.


    The man is simply a legend.

    He didn't do all 96 because some overlapped, but he made sure someone from the club was at every funeral.

    But he pretty much attended one every day for a 3/4 weeks, 4 in one day once.

    Basically went to as many as physically possible, go knows what that does to a person mentally.
