So the centenary stand is now the kenny dalglish stand. Personally I'd have preferred they sold the naming rights to the highest bidder but it's not a bad option if there's no takers. What about shanks and paisley?

Not a bad option?!
The man has done so much, not just for our club, but the whole city of Liverpool.
He has inspired people the length of the country and further.
I would have the whole stadium named after him.
You want a few extra million as opposed to honouring a great man like Kenny Dalglish? Shame on you.

03 May 2017 17:28:21
I'll now sit in the lower Kenny Dalglish stand.

{Ed001's Note - I can't believe anyone would want the stand named anything but the Kenny Dalglish Stand! He is the greatest legend of the club, which says a lot when we have had Shanks, Paisley and Fagan, amongst many others. If anyone deserves this honour, it is him.}

True ed and not just for football. What he done after Hillsborough went above and beyond.

{Ed001's Note - that is the most important thing of all. His actions then have been deserving of any honour, nothing we could do for him as a club or the city as a whole, could ever truly repay him.}

03 May 2017 18:11:55
Sir kenny?

03 May 2017 18:14:38
I can not understand how or why he has not been knighted. The man will always be a Sir to me.

03 May 2017 18:07:20
Im stunned by the original post.

03 May 2017 18:08:13
For the younger fans on this site do you want to explain why Kenny Daglish is King Ed?

{Ed001's Note - I can't believe I need to! This is a man who is the greatest player ever to pull on a Liverpool shirt, to becoming the manager who continued to win trophies, our last manager to win the league. There is his total devotion to the club, taking any role asked of him just to be involved.

Most of all though, his involvement in the aftermath of the Hillsborough disaster was above and beyond any possible call of duty he could have been asked to do. He ensured that he got to as many of the funerals as he could personally, possibly do, as well as organising the players and staff to make sure they were at as many as possible. Then there was his time he gave to the families, always being there just to listen when they needed someone to talk to. He did as much as anyone for the families.}

Love king Kenny. Absolute legend and a giant of a man and human being. Total respect for him and every liverpool fan should feel honoured to have him associated with our club. Long live the king. YNWA.

03 May 2017 19:18:46
I honestly can't disagree with the original post enough. Embarrassing.

03 May 2017 19:23:27
The greatest player to don a red shirt. This is SO the right decision. Long live the King!

03 May 2017 19:29:38
Original post is a Jezza Kyle wind up post.
I'd rather Kenny wasn't knighted, I don't want him associating with some of those dirty, corrupt political cronies. He's above that.
The stand name is a fine gesture and 100% appropriate.

I'm actually laughing at the original post. And i put it down to generational differences (I hope) . It's not the first time Ed001 and other posters have explained KD's significance and importance to the history and legacy of the club. But if people don't want to pay attention or don't give a damn, then what can you do? As I said - generational differences.

03 May 2017 20:32:05
Thank Jesus for Ron.

03 May 2017 21:11:48
I was at wembley v manutd in 77. First time the chant 'DALGLISH' went up from the terrace is someting ill neuer forget. Goosebumps then and now. Little did any of us know a legend was preaent. I was a kid . now much older . Thanks kk.

03 May 2017 21:55:06
Wasn't the reason he stood down as player manager due to the Hillsborough events finally getting on top of him and he needed a break? The man comes calling for our club without question, he let his name be dragged through the mud to protect players and was treated like dirt by others but still stood alongside them to show a united front cause he felt that was best for us. He shouldn't just have the key to the city, he should have the key, bed, and possibly wife of every Liverpool fan for what he has done. We were lucky to have him and even luckier to have him love our club as much as he does.

{Ed002's Note - No. It has been dealt with over and over and I explained that very day.}

03 May 2017 22:15:25
Spot on there Ron I 100% agree. The honours Kenny already has, the freedom of Liverpool, now the stand being named after him, his European cups, his league titles and his 102 Scotland caps those are the honours that matter to me . Those honours are what make Kenny a legend and hero to me . Have you seen some of the excuses for humans that have been Knighted Kenny is better than that in my eyes.

I would call myself as a junior supporter of Liverpool, started following the club during the Rafa-Torres-Ngog years. I am not even English. And I only knew about the Hillsborough since the last few years. Questioning about naming the stand? That is so embarassing, even me know who Dalglish is and what he has done before this.

I despise some of the football fans, especially from where I come from. Not all but some. Supporting something, regardless it is a football club or anything, they chose what to support blindly based on the fame and the current success. I wouldn't argue that those usually what trigger someone to start to follow or support it, but once you did, spend some time to actually learn something from its history, traditions etc.

I knew some Chelsea supporters, who didn't even know who was the manager before Mourinho, who were the stars and legends before the likes of Drogba, Lampard, Cole or Crespo.

Please, please, please people, supporters everywhere especially the younger ones, read some books about Liverpool, they're all available on Kindle.

To find out more about KK the man, I would recommend his autobiography - My Liverpool Home. To find out more about him as a player and manager from a contemporary, I would recommend Rush's autobio. I would also recommend Carra's, Fowlers and Gerrards (first one) to find out more about him as a legend, as they all grew up locally during the years when KK was in charge (both on and off the field) .

They're all available on Kindle, so no excuse!

Also, do as much reading as possible on t'internet about Hillsborough and especially try to catch the BBC documentary from the last couple of years about it, I'm sure you'll find it on YouTube or iPlayer. Make sure you have a box of tissues to hand as I was in tears through most of it.

04 May 2017 08:29:38
Ed002 I'm not sure if you thought I was on about his second stint in charge or not? As I meant tenure during the 1990's if I'm wrong still then my apologies.

{Ed002's Note - Ok.}
