Liverpool manager Dalglish sacked after no reversal of fortunes
Kenny Dalglish was sacked by Liverpool FC’s US owners following a miserable run of form, which has seen the Reds lose against arch rivals Man United, fail to score, and have their captain sent off in every match.
‘It was time for a change,’ explained owner John Henry. ‘We had a negative score early in the first quarter when they got one in the score bag to make it one zip. Then our ringleader Stefan Gerrard got a Card Red rejection for stud checking. Our speed play wasn’t in the hit zone and as Manchester had a shut out I went to our locker room and told the Top Coach he was fired.’

Mike Ashley, Chairman of Newcastle United slammed the decision, ‘These foreign owners don’t understand the British game,’ he commented, ‘I’d have sacked him at half time. A full 45 minutes to turn the team around should be ample.’
