Liverpool Information

From the most humble of beginnings, Liverpool have grown to become one of the mightiest clubs in English football. Liverpool now have 19 First Division/Premier League titles to their name, and only their rivals Manchester United have more.

Nicknamed the Reds on account of their playing colours, Liverpool’s existence has their neighbours Everton to thank – a fallout at the Toffees in 1892 allowed Liverpool to form and take up residence at their famous Anfield home, where they still play to this day.

The club is famous for its anthem ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’, which addresses the players as they take to the field at Anfield. It has regularly been sung by fans after some of Liverpool’s most famous wins in the Premier League and European competitions.

Liverpool History

It’s amazing to think that Liverpool have their bitter local rivals Everton to thank for existing at all!

In the late 1800s, the Toffees rented their ground from John Houlding, the Mayor of Liverpool. However, after a disagreement, Everton moved to Goodison Park, and Houlding decided to form his own club to use the land that he owned – Liverpool FC were born.

Fast forward 130 years, and the Reds rightly take their place as one of the most decorated teams in the land. Nineteen top-flight titles have followed, as well as 13 trophies on the continent, seven FA Cups and eight League Cups.

Liverpool have enjoyed several periods of dominance in domestic football. The first came in the 1900s, when their manager Tom Watson led the club to the First Division title in 1901 and 1906.

The Reds would win back-to-back league titles in 1921-22 and 1922-23, but they would have to wait until the 1960s for their next spell of dominance. Remarkably, Liverpool didn’t win the FA Cup for the first time until 1964, and that triumph was sandwiched by another pair of victories in the First Division. They also lost in the final of the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup, and that era of Liverpool’s fine history is indebted to the inspirational manager Bill Shankly and his ‘Boot Room Boys’.

One of those, Bob Paisley, took on the managerial reins when Shankly retired, and he continued his predecessor’s fine work. Liverpool won the FA Cup, the UEFA Cup and the First Division title in 1973-74, and from 1975, they embarked on an incredible period of dominance – winning 10 more titles and two FA Cups in the next 15 years.

At this time, English clubs were beginning to establish themselves as a major force in continental football, and Liverpool were at the forefront. They won the UEFA Cup in 1975-76 before claiming the European Cup, the top prize, on four occasions between 1977 and 1984. If they weren’t already, the Reds were now established as one of the biggest football clubs on the planet.

However, then followed a surprisingly fallow period. Other than an FA Cup and a League Cup, Liverpool enjoyed a decade of despair in the 1990s, before the appointment of Gérard Houllier saw the Reds return to their best. In 2000/01, they completed a unique treble by winning the UEFA Cup, FA Cup and League Cup.

Houllier was replaced by Rafa Benítez, under whom more success came in the FA Cup and the Champions League – the first time that they had won the continent’s top trophy in more than 20 years.

However, the Reds’ modern history was completed by Jürgen Klopp, the charismatic manager who achieved something that nobody had done in nearly three decades: a Liverpool Premier League triumph. His team finally got their hands on the trophy in 2020, ending a 30-year wait for the honour.
