Dalglish’s Golden XI vs Current LFC Side

Dalglish’s Golden XI vs Current LFC Side
February 23, 2011 Paul Tomkins

Yesterday marked the 20th anniversary of Kenny Dalglish’s resignation.  First time around, his obvious high was 1987/88. Although 1985/86 – his first season in charge – led to more silverware, the ’87/’88 team remains the benchmark for footballing brilliance at the club. But how does it compare to the current strongest XI?

A team is always something other than the sum of its parts: sometimes, as often seen at Real Madrid in the past half-decade, and arguably at Manchester City too, it does not match up to the sum of its parts; other sides exceed them, with Barcelona arguably offering even more than their individual brilliance in the way they understand each other’s play.
