Liverpool hit rock bottom last night as they stumbled to a 1-1 draw with Basel in the Champions League, meaning they missed out on qualification for the last 16 of Europe's top club competition.
Instead they'll drop down to the Europa League - which boss Brendan Rogers tried to convince himself and anyone who will listen that it's a "prestigious tournament" - following a dire Champions League campaign in which they won just one game.

Things aren't much better in the Premier League either. They're down in ninth and are six points adrift of West Ham who currently occupy fourth spot. To make matters worse, they take on fierce rivals Manchester United at the weekend, and a loss in that game is almost unthinkable.

"Just £3 will help make Brendan Rodgers life a little easier at Christmas' goes the voice over while images of the Liverpool boss looking down and out flash up. We're starting to think that £3 might not be enough actually.
