Ed001, do u think Kevin Keegan gets the credit he deserves from liverpool fans?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know, depends on what you mean. He left before he should have done, which cost him a chance to write himself in to the record books. He should have held on. As it was he was completely overshadowed by the great man who ended up replacing him - Dalglish.}

As they say Edo1, "Timing is everything" and in this case, "Everything happens for a reason". Had Keegan not felt the need to leave at the time that he did then maybe the history about the finest player to ever play for LFC in the person of Sir King Kenny, doesn't get written.

Btw has anyone seen the clip on Youtube of Klopp reading the story book about King Kenny like a kids story book, created by the club? Awesome to watch. Check it out if you don't already have.

{Ed001's Note - Dalglish was being brought in to partner Keegan anyway, if Keegan stayed.}

Sorry ed. The question should be how much do u think Dalglish overshadowed kevin Keegan's achievements for liverpool?

{Ed001's Note - in that case massively overshadowed him. Deservedly so, Keegan jumped ship for the money, Dalglish stayed and made himself a legend.}

Would u put him in the same bracket as Owen?

{Ed001's Note - god no. Owen was a multi-millionaire and had no need of money. Keegan was in an era where they earnt little. I can understand his choice to leave for the money, even if I do disagree with it.}

27 May 2020 23:33:05
Cheers ed. Have a good night mate.

{Ed001's Note - you too mate.}

I've always felt that Keegan was as important and impactful to the team as Dalglish was, even though their styles and positions were different, and they never played together. Circumstances dictate how you are seen. While in the UK Keegan is seen as someone who went for the money (I've come to accept it as a fact of life since loads of players have done it and do it, since) there's no denying that Keegan's standing amongst his peers and the footballing world peaked after he left Liverpool. He came in second for Ballon d'Or voting in 1977, and won it in 1978 and 1979, while playing for Hamburg SV. Would he have won those if still with Liverpool?

If we assume that he left for personal fame and fortune, then he achieved his goal.

ed002 did Owen leave for money or did he not all ways want to play abroad. now for the Keegan do you think he would have worked with Dalglish as good as Rush,

{Ed001's Note - Owen was only ever interested in money. He was a money grabbing leech and still is.}

Do you think Dalglish and Keegan would of been as good as we dream about Ed? I can’t remember anyone not shining when Dalglish played with them.

{Ed001's Note - it would have been a dream team mate. Keegan would have been perfect alongside Dalglish. It is a shame but we all did ok in the end. Keegan was a star in Germany and we dominated Europe. But put the two together and it could have been so special.}

Only three years later Rush came in. Maybe would not been if Keegan had stayed. Who knows aye.
we all know what Dalglish did for Rush
Dalglish. LEGEND.

Keegan was an absolutely brilliant player. He doesn't get the acclaim of other British stars.

I think the comments about utd while at Newcastle helped to ridicule him, as did football its a funny old game. Footballs a game of two halves. He doesn't help himself. But one of the best players this country has ever produced.

This sounds like something we had a few years ago when we signed Suarez to play with Torres and he left for the money, it was a pity cause it would have been some partnership.
