Dalglish: Please let Liverpool play rubbish and win!

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is tired of dominating games with no end product and would just be satisfied to claim the three points with an average performance. "We want to win games but it would be nice if we were rubbish and won a game," said the Reds boss, who insists finishing above near neighbours Everton, two points ahead, should not be the primary motivating factor for his players.

"Our incentive is to get as much as we can from every game we play.

"We want to finish with as many wins and points as we possibly can and the incentive we have is just representing the football club as much as anything else.

"We have always set ourselves high standards in terms of the level of performance and there are not too many times when we've let ourselves down on that front.

"But winning is what it is all about and points on the board is what it is all about."

The Reds have hit the woodwork 30 times this season and have dominated many games without delivering the killer blow to opponents.

"There is no one happy with what has happened in games and we've said that in our post-match interviews.

"But nothing changes in the week to what we have said after the game.

"The less you have to change the easier it is and it is great credit to the players that they continue to get in there and try their best to win the matches.

"They show great resolve and determination - but I am repeating myself.

"We know that they are good players and that is not being arrogant or big-headed.

"There is not much more we can say and there are no answers coming up.

"Their performance level is very high so if they continue to play at that good level then eventually it is going to work for us."
