    It was really hard to see Newcastle go down last year. At least they've been top of the table pretty much all season, and it'll be nice to see them win a trophy for a change (if they can hang on). They've had some bad luck the last few years (damn you Michael Owen), but they deserve to be in the Premier League and hopefully they can move towards the upper part of the table over the next couple of years.

    I've heard about 15 different versions in the past week (the last being something about a team being able to pay $250K for an additional slot), so at this point no.

    Wikipedia (great source, I know) has an explanation of the 2010 version of the rule.

    Designated Player Rule - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I haven't really followed MLS so far, except for the occassional Toronto FC game, so I didn't know this even existed, and therefore I don't know how legit the wiki explanation is.

    Yup, and they have a Chelsea fan heading the sale!

    I hope he sells Liverpool to a very nice, and an extremely rich person

    What is there to find out?

    The new manager is going to have his hand tied and the club are going to sell their best players.

    Just look what happened to Corinthians after Hicks' ownership.

    The owners next please too....

    I think questions would have been asked of the other "big 4" managers had they finished 7th. I believe The Times has a senior Liverpool official(During a recent match-day) saying to his counter part on the other team. "Why does Benitez play two holding midfielders?" The reply was "I don't know" and the retort "Because he doesen't have three." His position had clearly become untenable.

    I think the key is who the new manager will be, Mark Hughes has been mentioned and I am not sure about that one. Kenny Dalgleish would be a sentimental choice, but he obviously has pedigree and both would come without a severance package.

    Right now I think Liverpool will have to make do with what they have got, which in my book means Roy Hodgson or Martin O Neil.

    Either way I will be interested to see how Babel, Aquilani, Lucas and Kuyt do under a new manager. Essentially there is the spine for a relly good team in place, can they hold what they have and add some good depth in the striker position and in a few other areas they will be back up there.
