Dalglish is the right man for the job, says Alan Shearer

Kenny Dalglish has had his critics this year and that's mostly because he spent 4 thousand bajillion space dollars on absolute shite like Jordan Henderson and then only got the team to 7th in the league.  I actually think that's quite good.  Shearer is in your corner, Kenny - fear not!

Everyone seems to forget that Liverpool have actually won a trophy this year, and that just because you buy a whole bunch of players that doesn't mean you should automatically win the league.  These things take time, especially if Charlie Adam is in your team.  Were it not for Newcastle's ridiculous form, the Anfield side would be easily pushing for a European place and they are also in the semi-final of the FA Cup.  I don't really know what else these people seem to think Dalglish is meant to do.  Shearer said:
It's there for everyone to see that their league form has not been good enough, but if they go home with two cups then that would certainly be progress, and surely that is what it is all about for Liverpool at the moment?
"If you were to ask an Arsenal fan which they would rather have, the FA Cup and the Carling Cup in the trophy cabinet or a finish in the top four, then that is a tough question for them.
"Of course Liverpool want both. Next season will be all about winning trophies and getting in the top four, because that's the size of club they are.

Yes, getting in the top four should be easy for a team like Liverpool.  In fact, I don't know why they aren't already there.  It's not like Man City, Man Utd, Arsenal and Chelsea want to win anything and Spurs definitely haven't been slowly building their functioning team over the last few years.  They basically have no competition at all - it's like when I entered that women's wrestling competition and then just sat in the audience and jizzed all over my self.  What did they expect?  There's no way I'm gonna sit and watch two half naked hot girls clawing over each other without taking my pants off.  It does make family Christmases a little bit awkward, but hey, that's just who I am.  I'm a real catch.
