Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish says that the club need to get back to the pass and move style of play from their glory days if they want to be successful again.

The Scot has been in charge for three games, and while he is yet to taste victory there has been a marked difference to the style of football played under Roy Hodgson.

The club’s success of the late 1970s and through the 1980s was built on the pass and move principle instigated by Bill Shankly and Bob Paisley.

Dalglish flourished as a player under such a system and told reporters: “It would be nice if we could get back to that, on the pitch especially.

“Pass and move isn’t old fashioned, it’s the Liverpool way.

“That’s the way I was brought up and I don’t think I could change. I think that’s the way the players would like to play as well.

“It’s great for the fans to watch and you can’t underestimate their role in it as well.

“If the players know that the fans are behind them it doesn’t half help them.

“Everyone has to play their role. We have to lift the fans.

“If the staff, the owners and everyone else sing from the same hymn sheet, which we are doing, then I’m sure we have happier days ahead of us.”
