The madness at Anfield must have the rest of Europe wondering how on earth English sides continue to dominate on the continent.
Last week, following Liverpool's 4-4 draw with Chelsea in the Champions League, Irish pundit Eamonn Dunphy described that game as "like two drunks fighting in a back alley throwing punches at each other".
If that's the case, then last night's 4-4 draw with Arsenal was akin to two stiletto-heeled slappers rucking on a nightclub dance floor, too busy grabbing a handful of hair or reaching for the nearest bottle of WKD to adequately defend themselves.
Liverpool may have played out two of the most memorable matches in recent memory in the past seven days, but the brutal truth is that it has been a week of failure for Rafa Benitez and his side.
The draw at Anfield means that Manchester United can go six points clear if they win their two games in hand starting with Portsmouth tonight, while even Chelsea will still believe they have an outside chance when they take on Everton.
The Spaniard has enjoyed great success in the Champions League with a tight, pragmatic system that has seen Liverpool fail to kill off domestic opposition on countless occasions.
The logical conclusion could be drawn that, in radical change of tack, he's sacrificed that frugal approach in exchange for more goals, that would not be giving due credit to the rank incompetence of both teams' back fives.
Even Javier Mascherano, a midfielder whose name prompts almost universal sage nods of approval, took his turn to join the list of players personally culpable for goals last night.
George Gillett and Tom Hicks may have sat together and put on the most strained showing of unity this side of a photo call for the G20 leaders, but they could only look on as Andrei Arshavin banged in all four of his and Arsenal's shots on target, rounding off each of his goals with increasingly stupid facial expressions. The man is football's equivalent of a Jim Henson muppet.
On that subject, what exactly do you call a four-goal haul? A double-brace? A fat-trick? Answers on the proverbial postcard please. Whatever, any Fantasy Football players with Arshavin in their side won't be cursing his loss of a win bonus too much.
A lot has been made of Alex Ferguson's decision to field a team of infants against Everton, but Arsenal fans must be wondering what might have been had Arsene Wenger played the rubber-faced Russian against Chelsea from the start of their own FA Cup semi-final.
Unless, of course, Wenger paid homage to his club's history and dropped him for being 'too talented' for the system he wanted to play, the reason former Gunners boss George Graham once cited for leaving Anders Limpar on the bench.
The blatant disregard of defence at Anfield last night must have had Graham pulling out what little hair he has left.

Nobody went up or down anywhere last night, but the Football League delivered some crazy stoppage time action of its own.
Already relegated from League One, Hereford were playing with the pressure off and caught struggling Yeovil flat-footed as they took a 2-0 lead, only for Luke Rodgers to reduce the deficit before goalkeeper Chris Weale scored a header in the last minute to earn a point that should secure the West Country side's place in the division.
As a story it's not quite Jimmy Glass standard, but the joyous sight of a goalkeeper running around with no idea how to celebrate a goal is always a great sight.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: John Paintsil claims he was given a hefty bonus for marking Cristiano Ronaldo out of the game when Fulham beat Manchester United 2-0 - "I remember hearing our fans in the stands who were surprised at my refusal to join the attack shouting and urging me to go forward. But I refused and it paid off in the end. Ronaldo couldn't score, we won the match and my coach gave me £10,000 for a good job done." Fulham have denied the claim.
FOREIGN VIEW: "Epic comeback... and to three points: To see is to believe" - Marca is foaming at the mouth over Real's dramatic 3-2 win over Getafe courtesy of a Gonzalo Higuain wonder goal in the 93rd minute, after Francisco Casquero did his Berbatov impression by dinking a late penalty right into the arms of Iker Casillas. Real are now just three points behind Barcelona, who play tonight.
YOUR VIEW: riccyjay - "Uninformed rubbish ED. I have it on very good authority that Sepp Blatter never eats mini kievs. In fact he's allergic to them. He much prefers Finders Crispy Pancakes and has them served with Alphabites at every formal FIFA get together (along with one small plate of Curly Fries for Jack Warner who isn't allowed Alphabites because he uses them to make rude words)."
