As has already been said, there's a difference between thinking Stewart Downing, Jordan Henderson and Charlie Adam wouldn't be bad additions to the club and thinking that they are worth well over £50 million collectively.
And in no way, shape or form did Dalglish have any real say in the Carroll signing. A caretaker manager, who had been in the job about three weeks, being allowed to spend £35 million on one player? Nope, not having that. He may have passed a quick judgement over him but there's no way that can be counted as his
signing. Same with Suarez too.
That's not even getting into the increadibly fishy manner in which Carroll signed for us. Or of course there was the ridiculous "buy English" mentality of our owners.
Dalglish got it wrong a lot last season. He shouldn't have played Henderson as much as he did and he probably should have give Carroll more chances early on but he was a manager working underneath a (shit) Director Of Football who the owners foolishly trusted, so to think that he was to blame for all the shite is just wrong. Or that the trend would have continued if he had stayed on.
