The King and his Clarke are to reign for the next three years

The most unsurprising news story of the back-end of this football season has finally come to be. Kenny Dalglish, alongside Steve Clarke, have both been given three-year deals to continue managing and coaching Liverpool FC.

It is the news that fans have been waiting for for weeks, following Dalglish’s return as manager, but in a ‘caretaker’ capacity, following Roy Hodgson’s ill-fated time in charge.

Liverpool fans will rejoice whilst others may be wary. None more so right now that Tottenham’s fans, whose chase for UCL football ended in Manchester City’s stadium on Tuesday, and now face the prospect of coming to Anfield and realistically needing to win, if they are to have any European football at all.

Anfield is not a place Tottenham enjoy visiting, particularly in league games, famously going 73 years between wins in Liverpool (1912-1985), and where they have only won seven times ever, in all competitions!

With them down from the Man City game, and with us on a run that has taken us above Spurs – who played UCL football this season – and also now in a position to keep us above them, we have the added factor of the fervour that the crowd will have as a consequence of today’s announcement.

The signs are all ominous for Spurs, and all good for us.
