Liverpool FC's progress won't be measured by Twitter standards, warns Dalglish

Kenny Dalglish has warned that Liverpool's progress will not be measured by Twitter-like standards.

The microblogging website has become an integral tool within the game, with the current Reds manager and several other Anfield personnel, both on and off the pitch, among its registered users.

Last weekend's defeat to Wigan Athletic saw Dalglish face something of a social media uprising, with several disgruntled fans tweeting their frustrations at a fifth reversal in six league games.

But Dalglish does not believe that his side should be judged by instantaneous demands.

He said: "I think there's a demand on everybody in any walk of life, whatever their profession is or whatever they're working at. It's the modern idiom, isn't it? You've got social media, that's instant. If you want to know a question, you want an answer, you get an instant reply.

"Everything's instant now, even the coffee, so there's no way it's anything other than that. But what hasn't changed at this football club is the desire of the players and everyone at it, whether it's as a supporter or an owner, to move it forward and I think that's what we're trying to do.

"I don't think it'll be done overnight or it'll be done on the Twitter. It'll be done over a lot of hard work, and that's what we're trying to do."
