Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish will keep to his pre-planned schedule of assessing the Reds' season once the Barclays Premier League is over despite Saturday's 2-1 FA Cup final defeat to Chelsea.
With the Merseyside outfit anchored in mid-table, their final two matches - against Chelsea at Anfield on Tuesday and at Swansea next Sunday - will have nothing at stake but pride.
However, there will be no summit meeting with owner John Henry to discuss a season which has brought some silverware in the Carling Cup, but got them no nearer breaking back into the Premier League's elite.
"The owners will do the same as us," said Dalglish.
"They will sit and analyse the season when it is finished.
"That is what we said before a ball was kicked and there is no reason to change that."
The major positive for Liverpool on Saturday was the performance of substitute Andy Carroll, who almost managed to turn the game on its head.
Carroll scored one excellent goal, when he turned John Terry inside out before rifling past Petr Cech, came agonisingly close to grabbing an equaliser and then had a shot turned away by Branislav Ivanovic that would have brought the Merseysiders level.
It was a performance that is sure to have been filtered back to new England boss Roy Hodgson.
And allowed Dalglish to underline exactly how much faith he has in the much-maligned forward.
"We have been happy with what big Andy has done since he came to Liverpool," said the Scot.
"If the ones who were critical of him are going to be fair and honest, they might have to re-write their pieces.
"If they don't want to do that, fine. It's not my problem.
"It doesn't change our opinion. He came on and lifted the team. He got the goal and was unlucky not to get another one."
Dalglish accepted the decision to turn down what Carroll thought was an equaliser with good grace.
But he feels it is time some assistance was offered by world governing body FIFA.
"It wasn't given," he said. "And if it is not over, the officials deserve great credit.
"But there is no excuse for technology not to be there.
"It would be really helpful to the referees and linesmen. It is not embarrassing for them in any way shape or form.
"It would be helpful more than harmful for everybody. The game doesn't need to stop.
"It can carry on and someone can just shout down goal or no goal."
