At the start of the season, it appeared that the world was Liverpool's oyster, as some pundits tipped them to be potential title contenders, with even the most cynical observers forced to concede that with their off the field troubles behind them, and a new manager at the helm with a fine European pedigree (mainly achieved) with limited resources - Liverpool looked all set to have a cracking season.
But then the season started, and it all went wrong.
Then it got worse. In a big, big way.
Wednesday night, as the reds went down 3-1 at Blackburn Rovers, residents claimed that a micro-storm developed over Anfield. But an indicator as to just how low things have sunk could be seen in the closing stages of the home game against Blackpool.
Thousands of fans in a crush to get out of the stadium as they lost 1-0, wanting to stop the suffering, leaving the team to finish the game in a deserted stadium, as calls rang out for Kenny Dalglish to roll into town on a white stallion and save the day.
Roy Hodgson insists he isn't worried about his job. Which clearly demonstrates that either he knows something which we don't, or that he lives in cloud cuckooland.
Manchester United away in the FA Cup this weekend. Many United fans feel that now is as good a time as any to put the boot in, and really rub the Scousers' noses in it while they're there for the taking.
We asked a Liverpool fan to comment on the current situation at Anfield, and even though the headlights were on but nobody appeared to be driving, he told us: "We won it five times. Eighteen titles. Most successful English club ever. Shankly Gates. The Kop. The Fields Of Anfield Road..."
At which point we told the silly bastard to 'fuck off!' Christ, do they ever stop to draw breath?
But then, we are Skoob Sports News, established Manchester United suppurters, who wouldn't give a fuck if all things Scouse spontaneously self combusted overnight.
Bloody good riddance.
More as we get it.
