Liverpool fans were finally treated to the news they have been waiting for months on Thursday afternoon, as Kenny Dalglish was finally given a permanent contract at Anfield.

Dalglish signed a 3 year deal with the reds and his assistant Steve Clarke was also given a 3 year contract. Dalglish has transformed Liverpool since he took over from Roy Hodgson in January with 10 wins from his 16 matches in charge, including a 3-1 win over Manchester United at Anfield.

It seemed inevitable that the 60 year old Scot would be given the job on a permanent basis but it took some time for the announcement to be made, but now finally every Liverpool fan can look forward to what promises to be a bright future for the club under the tenure of ‘King’ Kenny, if the end of this season is anything to go by.

Dalglish has guided Liverpool to fifth in the Premier League and on the verge of a place in Europe next season, something that seemed impossible early on in the campaign. The Scot has also been integral in bringing through some young players who have really impressed for the reds. Players such as Jay Spearing, Martin Kelly, John Flanagan and Jack Robinson have come into the team and not looked out of place as Dalglish has given his trust to them, which bodes well for the future of Liverpool football club.

Liverpool’s record under Kenny Dalglish:

16 Games

10 Wins

3 Draws

3 Losses

34 Goals Scored

14 Goals Conceded

33/48 Points

“I’ll donate my ribs”, “He has 18 ribs” – Some Liverpool fans relieved star player doesn’t have major injury

Published

Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Southampton was marred by an injury to Virgil van Dijk. The Dutch defender had to be replaced in the second half with Joe Gomez coming on.

Van Dijk looked exceptional at the back once again as he had a number of interceptions and clearances. The former Southampton man looked comfortable with Joel Matip but Gomez had to take over from the Dutchman.

Liverpool’s next clash is against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup and we shouldn’t risk playing the defender.

The 27-year-old had a bruised rib, as per a release, from the club and Jurgen Klopp claimed the defender got hit there again.

“He already had a bruise in the ribs before the PSG game, which is very uncomfortable and today he got another hit there.

“It should be absolutely OK, hopefully. I didn’t hear anything different.”

This would come as great news for the Liverpool fans and their relief was plastered all over Twitter.

Liverpool granted permission to host music concerts at Anfield

Liverpool’s plans to host major music concerts for close to 50,000 people have been accepted at Liverpool Town Hall, according to Liverpool Echo.

The Reds were dealt a blow when their plans to host other events at Anfield were shot down by the Planning Committee. Although Liverpool have received approval, certain changes need to be made, as per the report.

The report adds that a number of residents raised issues regarding noise, lack of parking and anti-social behaviour. In response, Liverpool decided to reduce music events from 10 to 6 and accepted a two-year temporary license.

Chief Operating Officer Andy Hughes further shared plans to create a community fund, which would be raised via parking fares, to help the residents around Anfield.

Another measure includes the appointment of a “dedicated local resident liaison officer”, who will deal with any issues residents might face during the events.

The report adds that there were objections to the proposals, with some wanting the plans to be put on hold until we made life easier for the neighbours.

However, the Reds were granted permission on a temporary basis and will be able to host combat sports at the stadium from next summer.

This should come as great news for the club as we must maximize our revenue from Anfield. The stadium isn’t used much after the season is done but if we host some big fights and music events, it will only help the club’s finances.
