League Frustrations Could Cost Kenny Dalglish His Job

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 02 April 2012, 10:58

Kenny Dalglish’s job at Liverpool is coming increasingly under-threat following his side’s atrocious recent league form, which has seem them lose six of their last seven games. Despite winning Liverpool the Carling Cup and guiding them through to the semi-finals of the FA Cup King Kenny’s league shortcomings have led many to question whether he is the right man to take the club forward.

We are now over three months into 2012 and The Reds have just two Premier League wins to their name since beating Newcastle on 30th December 2011. As a result they have dropped down to 8th in the table, behind local rivals Everton, and will once again miss out on a Champions League qualification spot, making them a less attractive option for high profile players.
 
Dalglish has been heavily criticised for the expensive signings he has splashed out on, including Andy Carroll (£35m), Stewart Downing (£20m) and Jordan Henderson (£20m). The trio have managed a pitiful four league goals between them this season, with Carroll’s frustrations plain for everyone to see on Sunday when he stormed off after being substituted against his former club Newcastle. The striker has so far struggled to make an impact at Anfield and this season he has more yellow cards than goals. Meanwhile, Downing has failed to even get himself an assist in the league, whereas many supporters have questioned the amount of money paid for the Henderson.

Daglish’s odds continue to shorten in the Next Premier League Manager To Be Sacked market, with the Scotsman now priced at just 7/2 with Stan James. The club face a big summer and it will be interesting to see whether the owners decide to stick with Dalglish or instead turn to a new manager. The Next Liverpool Manager betting market currently has Martin O’Neill as the favourite, with the likes of Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho, Bolton boss Owen Coyle and Guus Hiddink also featuring high up in the odds.
