Tampabay.com's live chat with Tampa Bay Rowdies coach Paul Dalglish is big news in England

Rowdies coach Paul Dalglish's comments on this week's Tampabay.com live chat have made news across the pond.

Dalglish conducted a live chat Wednesday afternoon on Tampabay.com to talk about the Rowdies, the World Cup and anything other soccer-related topics that came up.

EPL team Liverpool FC is searching for a new manager after Rafael Benitez's departure to coach Inter Milan, and Daglish's father, Kenny, is a popular choice to be the successor. Kenny Dalglish was arguably the best player to don a Liverpool uniform and also had great success as a manger, but he hasn't coached in a decade and currently serves in an ambassador role for the club.

In the live chat, Paul Dalglish made his father's desire for the job known. He also campaigned for his father to get the job, even over frontrunner Roy Hodgson, the current manager for Fulham. Kenny Dalglish hasn't publicly made his desire known.

It's a topic that has torn at the hearts of a strong Liverpool fan base. Would Kenny Dalglish's return tarnish his legend, should Liverpool start fresh or should the Reds turn to its most popular figure to rebuild?

And Paul Dalglish's comments made waves across the United Kingdom. BBC reporter Nick Parrott said the story was broadcast on the network's TV and radio sports reports on Thursday.

Numerous UK newspapers, including the Times of London , the Daily Mail, and the Liverpool Echo plucked the Tampabay.com quotes in follow-up stories on Thursday and Friday.

Back in the states, Paul Dalglish's Rowdies host Montreal Saturday at 7 p.m. at Steinbrenner Field.
