Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has told anyone who believes the Reds have had an unsuccessful season to get their head tested, The
The Scotsman has seen his side lift the Carling Cup and head into today’s game with Stoke looking to book another trip back to Wembley in the semi-finals of the FA Cup. Dalglish believes that is proof of the progress made since his return 14 months ago and Liverpool fans should be happy with the progress. However, the Reds finished sixth last season and have slipped one place so far this year with Champions League qualification looking a distant prospect on current form.
Dalglish disagrees with the apparent lack of progress and believes that the club are better off both financially off the field and with performances on the field. The Liverpool boss was delighted with his side’s performance against Everton in Tuesday’s Merseyside derby and wants more of the same to silence any critics of the club.
“I think people should take an intelligence check. It’s not true that you only look at the league table. Some people will look at that, but there’s a bigger picture than that. There are two other competitions which people say are treated with disrespect. Whatever way you look at it, I think we’re better off than 18 months ago. The greater incentive is to finish high up in the league, but we wanted to do well in the cup competitions as well”, Dalglish said.
