Publisher Description

Kenny Dalglish's relationship with Liverpool Football Club is one of the great love stories of sport. From the moment he first set foot in the Anfield dressing room nervously asking for autographs while having a trial at the club, Dalglish felt a passion for Liverpool stir within him. After joining from Celtic in 1977, the supremely gifted striker was embraced by Liverpool fans, for the goals and the glory, and most especially for the three European Cups. The Kop's adoration of King Kenny has never ebbed. Every game, they still sing his name. Liverpool fans have never forgotten how Dalglish held the club together through two tragedies, the first at the Heysel stadium in Brussels in 1985 and then at Hillsborough in 1989. Both disasters are explored at length and in emotional detail by Dalglish in My Liverpool Home. Eventually, for the sake of his health and his family, Dalglish resigned and Liverpool have not won the title since. Although Dalglish walked alone, away from Anfield, in his heart he never really left and has now finally returned, playing a pivotal role in this turbulent period in the club's history. My Liverpool Home is the story of Dalglish's epic love affair with Liverpool, tracing the highs and lows, the characters, the laughter, the triumphs and the many tears. For football fans, this revealing book about one of the game's greatest players is a must. For those fascinated by how a very private man suffered after very publicly supporting his community, Dalglish's emotional story makes compelling reading.

Simply Brilliant!

There is no-one in the world who loves Liverpool FC more than King Kenny and it is an absolute joy to see him back where he belongs. Welcome back, Kenny! And thank you!

Regarding the book... if you support Liverpool FC then you love King Kenny. If you don't have this, what are you waiting for??!

An uplifting story of how football was and should be. I found the truth behind all I had seen to be poignant, emotional and funny. Thanks Kenny. You are a king amongst men.

Good book

Great book if you are a Liverpool fan
But why has it gone up on price by £12
From £6.99 to £18.99 come on iTunes
It only went up when he became Liverpool's boss again
