The blame for Liverpool's struggles in the Premier League can fall on many people.
Few could have expected this kind of season after the arrival of new owners Fenway Sports Group and the appointment of Kenny Dalglish as manager last year.
Unfortunately for Liverpool supporters, it's been a bit of Murphy's law in action this year. Despite winning the Carling Cup and still being alive in the FA Cup, the club sits in eighth place in the league.
The cup success can't mask the league struggles. Champions League qualification is an impossibility, as the Reds are 16 points off fourth place.
There are some with the team who are directly to blame for their poor performances this year. Others can be looked at as indirectly causing Liverpool's slide, whether it be through injury or any kind of absence.
Here are 10 men who have adversely affected the club this year and helped put it in its current position.
