Dalglish with league and cup trophies
Kenny Dalglish succeeds Joe Fagan in 1985 after the Heysel Stadium Disaster. As player-manager, Dalglish enjoys a fantastic first season, guiding Liverpool to the Double, thwarting Everton in both the old first division and the FA Cup

After a trophyless 1986-87 campaign, Dalglish reshapes the side and brings in England internationals John Barnes (left) and Peter Beardsley (right), as well as John Aldridge and Ray Houghton. They lose just two games in the 1987-88 season and win the title with four games to spare
Dave Beasant saves John Aldridge penalty
Liverpool are deprived another Double, though, as underdogs Wimbledon shock the champions in the 1988 FA Cup final. Dave Beasant saves Aldridge's penalty and Lawrie Sanchez grabs the only goal at Wembley

Ian Rush scoring the winner in 1989 FA Cup final
The 1989 FA Cup final is an all-Merseyside affair, and a classic. Aldridge makes up for his miss a year ago by bagging early on. Stuart McCall grabs two for Everton, but Ian Rush is the hero as Dalglish's men pick up another FA Cup

After nearly 20 years since his last game in charge, Dalglish return to the helm after the sacking of Roy Hodgson. His first game ends in defeat though, as Liverpool are beaten 1-0 by Man Utd in the third round of the FA Cup
Dalglish signs Andy Carroll (left) and Luis Suarez (right)
It doesn't take long for Dalglish to splash the cash, bringing in Andy Carroll (left) from Newcastle for a club record £35m and Luis Suarez (right) from Ajax for £22.8m. Exiting Anfield is Fernando Torres, who joins Chelsea for a British record £50m. In the summer of 2011, Stewart Downing, Charlie Adam and Jordan Henderson all arrive

The two big-money signings do not quite work out. Carroll fails to find the net on a regular basis, while Suarez is embroiled in a race row with Manchester United full-back Patrice Evra. The Uruguayan is found guilty and receives an eight match ban
Dalglish wins Carling Cup
Dalglish delivers Liverpool's first trophy for six years when they beat Cardiff on penalties in the 2012 Carling Cup final. They fail to win a cup double though, losing 2-1 to Chelsea in the FA Cup final

Liverpool lose to Swansea on the last day of the season. They end the season with their lowest ever Premier League points total and their fewest wins (14) in a top flight season since 1953-54. Three days later, Dalglish is sacked, leaving with a record of 35 wins in 74 games during his second spell
