Kenny Dalglish celebrated the end of Liverpool's six-year trophy drought and stated his intention for it to be the start of another glorious era for the Merseyside giants following his side's Carling Cup triumph over Cardiff at Wembley.
Less than 14 months after Dalglish answered the SOS call of owner John Henry, the Scot guided Liverpool to victory. That they had to come from behind before drawing 2-2 and then survive the shock of failing to convert their first two penalties in a shoot-out that saw them squeeze home 3-2 matters little.
"Although we have won something today, that is not us finished," he said. "We don't want to stop here, we want to keep going. It (Liverpool) means an awful lot to a lot of people."
