In the summer of 2012, Kenny Dalglish left the Liverpool management role for the second time in his career. A legend as a player and in his first term in office, Kenny could not find the success he had previously had at Liverpool and Blackburn in the '80s and '90s. Many put this down to a poor league showing and his failures when dealing with the press. Indeed, as time went by his puns and quips with the journalists become more arrogant and aggressive, and he himself admitted that (via ESPN):
If it ever happened again, and I hope it wouldn't, it would be done completely differently
But where did Kenny go wrong? Why could he not lead Liverpool the way he did back in the past? Looking at his management skills from the '80s Liverpool, and the squad from 2011/12, many interesting points can be said about both squads, and why they didn't work in today's game.
