Kenny Dalglish hit out this week at the methods of modern journalism and the ways they try and manipulate a story based on made-up rumours that have little or truth or substance. The Liverpool manager was undoubtedly speaking out on behalf of his fellow managers, and some supporters to be fair, who are sick of seeing an endless stream of speculation and transfer rumours.
This week at FFC we have seen a mixed bag of blogs that include Rafa Benitez deserving better; a gamble that could see Liverpool save millions in time, while Lucas Leiva is badly missed at Anfield.

“It comes as a surprise to myself, that yourselves [journalists] don’t know how the media work. It was a journalist that mentioned the list of names and it was the chairman that said ‘oh they are interesting’. It was a list of names and Suarez’s name was mentioned, but I don’t know if it was Luis Suarez. I don’t know what Suarez it is.
“Also if the guy who sends the story in, if it is not repeated anywhere else and it has no soul and is not attractive to a newspaper, they don’t get any money.So I think it will be interesting to yourselves to disclose to the general public where the story comes from, how they get there, instead of asking us questions every time somebody’s name appears in a paper.”
