Liverpool manager calls for patience after poor Premier League season
Kenny Dalglish has seen his Liverpool team lose five of their last six Premier League matches, although the Reds manager has a long-term plan and is ignoring criticism of his team’s recent results.

A 3-2 defeat at QPR was followed up by a 2-1 home reverse against Wigan, effectively ending any hope of Liverpool finishing in the top four of the Premier League although the Scot is railing against the demand for instant success.
“It is a modern idiom; you have social media which is instant and when you ask a question you get an instant reply,” said the Reds boss.
“Everything is instant now – even coffee. There is no way it is anything other than that.
“But what has not changed at this club is the desire of the players to take the club forward and that is what we are trying to do.
“I don’t think it will be done overnight, it won’t be done on Twitter, it will be done with a lot of hard work and that is what we are trying to do.
“There is no success in football which is instant – you can forget instant.
“They won the Carling Cup because they deserved to win it and it was fantastic.
“But that is not us finished and we want to progress the club as far as we can.
“I wouldn’t let the Carling Cup get in the way of anything – and it hasn’t done.”
Dalglish went on to say that Liverpool have made progress over the year although declined to be too specific about where that progress has been made.
