Liverpool FC: Five Reasons to Sack Dalglish
Liverpool FC fans are divided on whether or not to sack Kenny Dalglish. Some wish to stay the course because he deserves more time, while others degrade him and call for his termination. There is a middle ground though, one that provides Liverpool Football Club with a positive future while remaining reverent to someone who has contributed so much.

Eighth place is not good enough for LFC. The team show no promise of getting better and actually look more likely to continue falling in the tables. Forget about the money that comes with finishing higher in the table. Continuing this downward spiral in the table leads to the continued degradation of the reputation of Liverpool Football Club.
A change of manager can definitely be a positive for results, just look at Chelsea's appointment of Roberto Di Matteo. I believe many Chelsea fans would agree that the change of manager was a great improvement for their club in terms of results.

The desire of Dalglish to build a Liverpool FC team that becomes the basis of the next generation's England squad is a fatal flaw. Focusing on less than one percent of the world population for a club's player pool doesn't make too much sense, honestly.
Not to mention, his Anglophilic transfer policy doesn't exactly quell the racism speculation surrounding his support of Luis Suarez.
Building the Team

The first step in the building of any team is retaining talent. However, Reina's outburst at the April 1st clash with Newcastle United could very well be the culmination of internal frustration at the current direction of LFC. It is doubtful, too, that this frustration is localized to just Reina. Replacing Dalglish could serve to quash those frustrations and possible desires for LFC players to play elsewhere until the teams form changes for the better.

Seeing Liverpool FC fall apart isn't isolated to the fans and those within the club either. Players at other clubs will be well aware of the downward sliding status of Liverpool FC. Players at top four teams in Spain, Germany, Italy, France and England will likely see a move to LFC as a step down. Bringing in top talent becomes near impossible, but a new manager with a new philosophy could well do better than the current gaffer.
Retain Kenny's Services

Diehard Liverpool faithful still remember that it was King Kenny who last lead LFC to the league title as manager and contributed much to the success of Liverpool Football Club during the 1970s and 80s both as a player and a manager. He is revered for his contributions to the club, but it is evident that his services are not best for the club in the role of manager. Kenny could still have a positive effect for the club in a front office or ambassador role. Having such a prestigious player around the club can only remind players and staff of the glory days and instill the desire to return to prestige.

Having King Kenny step down isn't a sign of abandonment or ostracizing him from the club. He will always be held in high regard for his contributions. King Kenny will know as well as everyone else around the club that his resignation is what is best for LFC.
