    Peter Beardsley is going to interview him.
    That's like asking the sports correspondent for the Klingon home world, to interview the brightest minds on TOWIE
    Ever since I was a young boy, I've played the silver ball.
    From Soho down to Brighton, I must have played them all.

      And I'm glad he did. But there are people who do great things in their everyday lives who don't get the recognition of Kenny Dalglish. If Dalglish had done the same thing without being a famous footballer, you'd probably never have heard about it. In the same way, I'm sure there are people who did as much or more for Hillsborough families as Kenny Dalglish but who won't get a knighthood. I'd rather see awards given to people like the heroes who dedicate their lives in hospices who often don't even get given a decent wage. But instead, the awards most often get given to people already in the limelight who are have been lavishly rewarded. Actors and sportspeople get far too big a share of these gongs, it's obscene.
      “Whatever” though?

      Intend to agree with you on this topic but feel in this case Sir Kenny is well deserved , understand exactly what you're saying though.

      Shouldn’t he now be known as Sir Kenneth Dalglish?

      It doesn’t sound right to have a formal title and an informal first name.

      Precisely, download the film Kenny on BBC iPlayer he really was a giant rock to that city during Hillsborough.

      Except that through no personal obligation, he attended literally dozens of funerals of the victims of Hillsborough. People he never knew. And it was a process that by several accounts, changed and overwhelmed him forever.

      So yeah, there IS a difference.
      Every funeral.

      Fully deserved, absolute legend of a man.

      The only question I’d ask is why it didn’t happen years ago?!
