Kenny Daglish out
why?????Speculation has raged this week over Dalglish's future at Anfield after he and assistant Steve Clarke travelled to Boston to meet with the club's owners, Fenway Sports Group.
On Tuesday it was suggested the Scot was on the brink of leaving the Reds, and 24 hours later it emerged his second stint as Liverpool boss had come to an end.
An official announcement over Dalglish's exit is expected on Wednesday at 17.00 BST, when the details over his exit are expected to be revealed.
^Not a shocker. For a club that has a sizable financial power, it is pretty bad to finish 8th (behind everton), and considering that Arsenal and Chelsea were pretty vulnerable this season. Now that they are under American ownership, results are pretty much expected right away. He might be popular with fans, but his decisions are pretty poor.
Although, I believe that he deserves one more season to see whether he can correct the mistakes.

i would like king kenny to have one more season. but hey, that is how the world works
YNWA. thank you for the carling silverware and fa cup final
...and steve clarke walked with the king

I don't understand why managers such as Dalglish are easy scapegoats for the owners. The man deserved at least another season in charge.
Disappointing news to wake up to . Like others I thought they would have given him another year to try and sort things out.
thanks again KD, always will be an Anfield legend. YNWA

LFC part company with Dalglish
FENWAY SPORTS GROUP AND LIVERPOOL FOOTBALL CLUB PART COMPANY WITH MANAGER KENNY DALGLISH
Search for new Manager begins immediately as owners pay tribute to 'legend' Dalglish
Fenway Sports Group (FSG) and Liverpool Football Club announced that Kenny Dalglish is to leave his post today as Manager after having his contract terminated.
After a careful and deliberative review of the season, the Club came to the decision that a change was appropriate. It is not a decision that was reached lightly or hastily.
The search for a new Manager will begin immediately.
Principal owner John Henry was fulsome in his praise for the outgoing Manager.
"Kenny will always be more than a championship winning manager, more than a championship winning star player. He is in many ways the heart and soul of the club. He personifies everything that is good about Liverpool Football Club. He has always put the Club and its supporters first. Kenny will always be a part of the family at Anfield.
"Our job now is to identify and recruit the right person to take this Club forward and build on the strong foundations put in place during the last 18 months."
Liverpool Chairman Tom Werner said it was a tough decision, but ultimately one that needed to be made.
"Kenny came into the Club as Manager at our request at a time when Liverpool Football Club really needed him. He didn't ask to be Manager; he was asked to assume the role. He did so because he knew the Club needed him. He did more than anyone else to stabilize Liverpool over the past year-and-a-half and to get us once again looking forward. We owe him a great debt of gratitude.
"However, results in the Premier League have been disappointing and we believe to build on the progress that has already been made, we need to make a change.
"We are committed to delivering success for our supporters and our ambition remains resolute to return this great Club to the elite of England and Europe, where it belongs."
Kenny Dalglish's departure brings to an end his second spell at the Club where, as a player, he won numerous honours, including six English league titles and three European Cup trophies. As Manager he won three league titles, two FA Cups and of course this season, the Carling Cup.
Dalglish said he is proud to have served such a great Club.
"It has been an honour and a privilege to have had the chance to come back to Liverpool Football Club as Manager. I greatly appreciate the work that Steve, Kevin, the players and all of the staff put in during my time and feel proud that we delivered the Club's first trophy in six years winning the Carling Cup and came close to a second trophy in the FA Cup Final. Of course I am disappointed with results in the league, but I would not have swapped the Carling Cup win for anything as I know how much it meant to our fans and the Club to be back winning trophies.
"Whilst I am obviously disappointed to be leaving the football club, I can say that the matter has been handled by the owners and all concerned in an honourable, respectful and dignified way and reflects on the quality of the people involved and their continued desire to move the football club forward in the same way as when they arrived here.
"I would like to thank all of the staff at the Club for their effort and loyalty. I said when first approached about coming back as Manager that I would always be of help if I can at any time and that offer remains the same.
"Finally, I want to put on record my heartfelt gratitude to Liverpool's fans, who have always given me and the Club their unwavering support. Without them neither the Club nor I would have achieved anything."
problem with owners they think it is really easy to achieve those goals because of additional new players for one season. Daglish invested on young players. it won't happen in a blink of an eye. tsk tsk tsk
now the players would adjust again to a new manager.
Looks like Roberto Martinez is top contender to become the next Reds manager.
