Boss' fan plea
Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has urged the club's supporters to keep their nerve as they plot a path back towards England's elite.
The Reds are in line for a trophy double this term after booking an FA Cup final appearance at Wembley on May 5 with a 2-1 win over Everton at Wembley on Saturday. Yet even that would not be enough to satisfy some critics, who point to Liverpool's eighth-placed position in the Premier League as evidence that a £100million-plus outlay on the likes of Andy Carroll and Jordan Henderson has not been particularly successful. However, Dalglish is convinced his team are heading in the right direction, and wants the fans to keep the faith. "We need to be confident enough in our own beliefs and the people who support us have to be strong in their knowledge that what we are doing is correct," he said. "This football club is a fantastic example to anybody else that wants to run a football club. When there is a wee bit of mud flying about we come together. That is the football club I used to know and that is the football club we are getting back to."
