Hey I’m not doubting he deserves one for the all the Hillsborough stuff and for being an elder statesman of the game etc, but that doesn’t mean he didn’t taint his legacy with all that Suarez defence stuff, it was ridiculous and beneath him and it shouldn’t be forgotten. Only the most one-eyed Liverpool fan would deny it.
Pointing it out on the day he is knighted is rather gooseberry fool thing to do though considering all the great things he did for Liverpool’s community as a whole. Only the most one eyed Manu fan would deny that.
Maybe check out 5 lives Hillsborough documentary to educate yourself on who you’re criticising over a bad PR decision.
This thread really is a cesspool.
Nonsense, it is absolutely relevant to bring it up when it has been announced that he is being knighted. The Suarez incident stands out as a huge error of judgement and something that casts him in a negative light, the way Liverpool football club handled themselves throughout that incident was an absolute disgrace. Of course in Dalglish's case he has done an awful lot of good things and the way he supported families after Hillsborough was superb and he thoroughly deserves a knighthood for that. I don't think anybody is disputing that.
I'm sure if Ryan Giggs were to be knighted then his character and history of affairs would absolutely be brought up despite his services to the game and his significant charity involvement and rightly so. It is perfectly normal to discuss the merits of a knighthood because it should be a huge honour and there are lots of deserving candidates who don't have one, Harry Gregg for one.
Also, while you're telling people to educate themselves maybe you should take your own advice and look in to why Manchester United fans take offence to the use of the term 'Man U' and kindly refrain from using it in future.
