Dalglish: Fans taken for granted
Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish believes fans are "taken for granted" when it comes to the scheduling of big events such as the FA Cup final.
Rail maintenance work over the Bank Holiday weekend, coupled with a 5.15pm kick-off on May 5, means thousands travelling from the north-west will have to find alternative transport to the FA Cup final against Chelsea.
It adds more misery on supporters who have been allocated 25,000 tickets for the final - almost 7,000 fewer than their semi-final against Everton last weekend.
"Sometimes that is the problem when fans are taken for granted - not just our fans but those at all football clubs," said Dalglish.
"That is the decision which has been made and it's been made outside of our control.
"It could have been made a bit easier for them but they are fantastic fans and they will get there."
