Sir Kenny Dalglish

Recommended Posts

A disgrace he hasn't been knighted when other football men have been that don't have an ounce of his integrity, and didn't do what he did for the families of those lost at Hillsborough. For that alone he should have been knighted. A gent and a football genius.

Personally hoped he'd say "no thanks". Top bloke regardless.

Just waiting for Vinjay to rock up and somehow turn this into an Anti Sir Alex/Man United thread :lol: :lol:... Fully deserved though, Sir King Kenneth of Dalglish.

It will be a long time before we get a manager of his calibre again at Ewood. Maybe the Riverside could eventually be renamed Sir Kenny Dalglish Stand.

Always made me laugh when Nick Collins or whoever would try and get a rise out of him by asking his opinion on a Ferguson mind game.

Cue a shrug and ‘we concentrate on ourselves’

Compare that with Keegan.

Wouldn't have minded either. I'm not sure whether to recognise it or not as I have strong Republican views. UK Republic that is though I'm certainly in preference of US Republican politics over Democrats and certainly idiot liberals. Maybe I'll just use the "sir" prefix if I mention Ferguson in the same post as a way to take a "not very veiled" dig.

Since you're being so blase about it I'll go one further shall I? How about a dig at...erm...Fred Walker! Apparently Jack turned down a knighthood as far back as the 70's because Fred wasn't offered one. Probably because Jack was the talented Brother and the one with the sales skills whereas Fred was a glorified health & safety floor supervisor. To be fair I've never heard any cases of Walkersteel (the original not the pale imitation Howard Walker lent the name too) being sued on injury malpractice, etc. I'm pretty sure even back in the 60's and 70's there was a bigger market for industrial accident lawyers even if people were not generally quick to sue on more trivial matters. I've also heard that Jack was the one pushing for the sale and driving it forward. Fred probably wanted to wait (or just let his Brother do all the real work) but the consensus at the time was Jack got the better end of the deal. Not to mention there was a steel recession not long afterwards.

That’s all very nice, but what does it have to do with King Kenny?

It's about knighthoods so it's completely relevant. That said I only made that comment because someone decided to take snide digs at me. Maybe you should say something about that?

I'm guessing since so many people refer to him as "Sir Kenny" anyway he's probably just given in to them. Still think the whole concept is ridiculous and beyond antiquated. I'm glad Jack didn't take one because he was better than her in every possible respect. Working with Jack for 5 years was a far bigger honour than this could ever be even if he wouldn't buy Geoff Thomas. 🙄

Dalglish has claimed he never went back to Hillsborough. Even as a manager? 

BBC article is pathetic. Can't even refer to the club as "Blackburn Rovers". Don't tell me I'm being petty I saw people complaining because Shearer was pictured in a Newcastle shirt while showing his 95-96 goal stats. Compared to that this is much worse. Maybe I'll just stop paying my damn license fee.

That bit is about knighthoods. The rest is just babble.

Nothing but respect for Kenny even if you take away the Rovers connection.

Part of me hoped he hadn’t become a “sir” already because he’d told the establishment to shove it up their arse. Hillsborough was the biggest establishment cover up of our time let’s not forget that. Ultimately though it’s his decision and if he’s happy with it so am I, who am I to judge such a great man.

Apart from plenty of arguments about why a constitutional monarchy provides some things Presidents don’t....

Before it spirals into an entrenched argument though. You are entitled to your opinion as much as anybody; I just don’t happen to share it (like plenty of others).
