The Liverpool fans here in the Transfer Tavern are resigned to the concept of another season without Champions League football next season, with their only realistic hopes now resting on their success in the Europa League.
The group of passionate Reds are weighing-up who might be moved out in the summer to make way for Jurgen Klopp to bring his own signings to the club.
Our landlord has spotted some potentially exciting news for those of a red persuasion in the Daily Star, via Italian outlet Il Milanista, who are claiming that Mario Balotelli could be set to join Jiangsu Suning in the summer.
The Italian flop scored just one goal for Liverpool during a torrid spell last season and was loaned out to AC Milan this campaign, where he has also struggled to prove his worth.
One Liverpool fan is sat chatting with the landlord about this news and he thinks the Italian is simply not good enough for the Reds, stating that his work rate and commitment leave a lot to be desired for.
Liverpool fans, where does Balotelli rank when it comes to naming the worst players to ever play for your club?
