    Did I hear correctly that it's being released on DVD on Monday. Haven't bought a DVD in years but will certainly be buying this one.

    Yeah I watched it on Monday, really enjoyed it but to be fair there wasn't a lot they could have done that I wouldn't have enjoyed given the subject.

    Had never heard of this C4 show until last week. Glad I taped it as I could skip the bits of no interest. Could not believe that it is a weekly 2 1/2 show. Looking forward to getting to watch the DVD.

    Watched the film last night, very good, hard to see the man get emotional talking about Hillsborough. Powerful bit when he's walking up the road/hill and looking out at the view when he gets to the top.

    He has his reasons for taking it im sure and thats fair enough

    Few have done as much for the city as him

    It will hurt many people though also that he's taken it


    Hes been my hero all my life and i wont slag him, but personally im gutted hes accepted it

    Hell always be king kenny to me

    It never bothered me that he was denied this recognition for all of those years.To me and I'm sure to him too,the esteem he was held in by so many was far more important and I did wonder if he'd accept it if it was offered.But he seems genuinely proud to have received this honour,and if it makes him proud then I'm very happy for him to have it. With all he's done for so many people,nobody should begrudge him this for himself and his family.I know some would have liked him to make a stand against the British establishment and turn it down,but he's stood up for the people of Liverpool so many times and will continue to do so for the rest of his life so congratulations Sir Kenny. A great footballer but always more importantly,a great man.

    I've no problem with him accepting the award, he's earned all the recognition and appreciation that he gets (and probably a lot more again).

    As for the title, I see no reason to demote him from a King to a Knight, so he remains King Kenny as far as I'm concerned :)

    Sir Kenny Dalglish took a look at the newly-updated stand named in his honour today, following the summer announcement of his knighthood.


    The former Centenary Stand at Anfield was officially renamed after the Liverpool legend last October, in recognition of his remarkable contribution to the club as a player, manager and guardian on and off the pitch.

    But the news of further acknowledgement of Dalglish’s services to football, in the form of a knighthood in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list, came in June.

    So, an addition to the signage at the top of the Kenny Dalglish Stand was required – and the man himself, along with some of his family, saw it up close before kick-off against West Ham United.

    I came across this earlier, Bob Paisley and Kenny's first interview after the transfer from Celtic.
