The stature of Kenny Dalglish at Liverpool Football Club and the esteem to which he is held is legendary and even the word "legend" may be too small to sum up what King Kenny means to his beloved Liverpool and vice versa.
Accolades describing the achievements of the Scot would be far too numerous to mention but suffice to say, he is the club's most loved player of all time and one of its most successful leaders.
So when the chips were down and Liverpool needed a saviour, it was unlikely that they would turn anywhere else but to their talisman of old.
Many viewed this as a step too far into the club's past and pointed to the fact that Dalglish broke under the stress of management in the past and hence has been away from the sharp end of the stick for far too long.
However, John Henry and his management team came to this club on the premise, that amongst other things, they would listen to the wants and needs of the supporters and fans. Of course not everything that is sung for on the Kop would be delivered, but once the name of Dalglish began raising the roof at the most famous stand in English football, it was only a matter of time.
There is no doubting that Dalglish is an "old-school" manager. But let that not disguise a football brain that has been far from out to fodder and man-management skills that are still second to none.
Liverpool Football Club needs Kenny Dalglish, in fact they needed him once they parted with Rafa Benitez. There is no doubt that Anfield is in transition and while this time of change is being introduced, who better to look after the time honoured traditions of this most decorated of clubs than a fans' idol.
But the honeymoon period has not materialized; a second baptism at Old Trafford and a further loss on the road in his first two matches have certainly resulted in the fans understanding that Dalglish's second coming is far from a fairytale.
Although results may not have gone his way so far, Dalglish has certainly brought something to Liverpool Football Club and has very quickly been able to stamp his identity onto the squad.
In no particular order here are five positive factors that Kenny Dalglish has brought back to Liverpool Football Club.
