It's funny that United come within a whisker of winning the League, and actually win the League Cup, 1 of 4 trophies available to top teams at the start of the season.
This, to a Liverpool fan is a failed season.
On the other hand, Liverpool players (Mascherano) dream in January of doing the double... winning the Europa League and getting [b]4th position!!!
Liverpool are indeed in a mess - we need a buyer in the next few weeks or next season (and beyond) could be even worse. If we do get one and retain our best players then I think we'll be back competing next year.
I wouldn't be that happy if I were a ManU supporter either. VDS, Giggs, Scholes, Neville all need replacing. Ferdinand is fast becoming as injury prone as Hargreaves and Owen. Vidic apparently wants away, big clubs are circling Evra. Berbatov looks even more cheesed off than usual and I simply don't rate Anderson, Carrick or Valencia (not as first teamers anyway).
Fergie won't go on forever and if he leaves before refreshing this squad then ManU might have to spend a season or two rebuilding under a new manager who may or may not have cash to splash.
I can see Chelsea dominating next season.
