I'm not putting no blame on Dalglish. Downing, Henderson and Adam are still shit. However, I don't think, if he had his choice, he would have paid the same money for them.

I don't give a fuck who we played in the competition, we still won it, I still got to go to Wembley for the first time. We were in three competitions last season, won one, came 2nd in the other and did poorly in the league (in part because we ended up focussing on the cups). But trophies don't matter anymore apparently because now we must all bow down to the God of Fourth Place and all his monetary promises.
For the Cup runs alone, Dalglish deserved another summer without
