Dalglish wants return to Wembley days of old

When Liverpool meet Cardiff City in the Carling Cup final on Sunday, it will be their first appearance at Wembley for 16 years and somewhat surprisingly their debut at the New Wembley. Gone are the days when England’s national stadium was a home from home for the Red’s with it being affectionately named Anfield South in the 1970’s and 80’s.

Manager Kenny Dalglish has represented Liverpool at Wembley 21 times as player or manager over his career, and tells the Liverpool Daily Post how he would like a return to that period for the club: “It was a place which we visited pretty regularly and everybody at the football club is trying to get back a bit closer to those days.”

Dalglish also defends his side’s poor recent appearance count at Wembley: “People say it is 16 years since we were there but it was getting reconstructed for a long time, so it isn’t too bad.”

Liverpool go into Sunday’s clash with Cardiff on the back of one defeat in the last six games, that being away to Manchester United in the last Premier League outing. However, just one win in their last six league matches sees the Reds sitting in seventh place in the league, three points behind Newcastle in sixth.

A Carling Cup victory will no doubt improve the spirits of the Merseyside club, who will still be looking to finish in the lucrative fourth spot in the Premier League, just four points above them at present.
