McParland: Kenny Keen On Youngsters

Liverpool academy chief John McParland says manager Kenny Dalglish remains interested in the youth system.

Liverpool academy chief John McParland says manager Kenny Dalglish remains interested in the youth system.

In his column for, McParland explained that Dalglish attended some youth matches just 24 hours after the first team had lost to Stoke in the Premier League:

“A couple of weeks ago, Kenny Dalglish was down here to watch some of the younger teams in action. That was the day after the first-team’s unfortunate 1-0 loss at Stoke. It was fantastic to see him there as he could have decided to give it a miss after the frustrations at the Britannia.”

“But the boss still loves coming to the Academy and having him visit from time to time gives us all a big lift.

“We also had Ian Rush here last Monday. He ran an indoor session with the U15 and U16 strikers and gave them tips on how to improve their finishing. It’s not bad being able to call upon the club’s record goalscorer in all competitions, is it?”

    Referees H. Webb and M. Atkinson are both god refs. And also 100 % anti-Liverpool!

    They have been hurting LFC tremendously for a very long time by interpreting the rules harshly against LFC, which is unlawful according to the rules of fairness!

    Yesterday (15 May 2011) Webb did this in the 0-2 defeat to Spurs:

    9 minute: goal – possible freekick to LFC?

    26 min. : P. Crouch acting, gets a freekick – destroyng a LFC pressure

    28min. : LFC contra L Suarez kicked from behind but no freekick no yellow card

    29 min. : Rose clearly commits penalty against Kuyt – not given

    45 min. : P. Crouch commits freekick against L. Leiva – results in a chance for Spurs


    46 min. : S. Pienaar should have been booked for a freekick against D. Kuyt

    47 min. : P. Crouch commits freekick but not given – results in a chance to Spurs

    54 min. : SCANDAL: Flanagans lawful shoulder tackle gives Spurs a penalty – outside of box!

    77 min. : Danish commentator: ” Webb has had many fifty-fifty decisions against Liverpool”

    83 min. : D. Kuyt`s acting gets LFC wrong freekick, danish commentator:”you could say LFC

    has had such a freekick in coming”
