Career years: 1969-1990

Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish retired 23 years ago, but an entire generation of older Liverpool fans still hold onto Dalglish dearly. And unfortunately for the Internet, they bought iPhones and learned how to tweet. When American owners Fenway Sports Group, led by John Henry (they own the Red Sox too) sacked Dalglish from his managerial post at the end of last season (he spent over £100 million on player transfers and guided Liverpool to a 7th place finish), some fans channeled their once closeted xenophobia towards Henry and FSG and unabashed hatred towards current manager Brendan Rodgers, all in the name of stanning for "King" Kenny.
