Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers survived the clubs end of season review after the Merseyside clubs owners flew into town on Tuesday to discuss what had happened the previous season, but some others were not as lucky.
Long-time assistant manager to Brendan Rodgers Colin Pascoe was fired along with Coach Mike Marsh, as club chairman Tom Warner criticised the fact that over £100 million was spent on new players following the departure of Luis Suarez, and yet all bar one or two failed to make any impact.
Next on the hit list could be head of recruitment, Dave Fallows and chief scout Barry Hunter with the club possibly turning to former Liverpool stars Robbie Fowler, Steve McManaman and Rob Jones to take over some of the coaching duties.
It remains to be seen how aggressive Liverpool will be in the transfer market this summer, but if they are to have any hope of a top-four finish they need to bring in some quality players.
Meanwhile Rodgers knows he has dodged the bullet, but should the Reds fail to start the season in winning ways it might not take the men in Boston long to decide that the Northern Irishman promised more than he could deliver.
