Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson remained in defiant mood today, as his side languished in the bottom three, after their worst top flight season start since the 1964/65 season.
After a humiliating home drubbing by Holland - sorry, Blackpool - Hodgson announced his five year plan, which involves having the club relegated two divisions in successive seasons - sort of like Leeds and Manchester City - before bouncing straight back up and winning the treble in season 2014/15
As Manchester United did in 1999 - win the treble, that is, as opposed to making a complete bollocks of everything - but they don't talk much about that on Merseydive.
Apparently Hodgson's choice will reinvigorate the club, take them to pastures new, like Huddersfield and Hartlepool, Doncaster and Bristol City, and see them emerge with new trophies, unseen at Anfield for years, before going for the big one - the treble.
In what is being widely viewed as a reworking of the Shankly era of the 1950s/60s Hodgson promises that the club will rise phoenix like from the ashes singing "We won it five times..."
The first part of the plan is to get rid of Gillett and Hicks - and probably have Kenny Dogleash mysteriously incapacitated in some nefarious manner.
Manchester United fan, Jarbo the Killer was reported to be laughing so hard that he had to be administered oxygen.
Sometimes, the beautiful game can be ever so cruel.
More as we get it.
