Based in Merseyside, Liverpool have gone on to become one of the most successful clubs in English football, having won a record five European Cups, three UEFA Cups, three UEFA Super Cups, 17 League titles, seven FA Cups, a record eight League Cups and 15 FA Community Shields. The Reds were founded after a dispute between the Everton committee and club president as well as land owner of Anfield, John Houlding.
The Merseyside club have played at the world famous Anfield since their formation and people come from around the world to embrace the experience of the atmosphere and quality of performance on show. They were only a club for a year before joining the Football League, whilst Everton relocated to Goodison Park.
Liverpool won the Lancashire League in their first season and joined the Football League second division in the 1893-94 season, where they also took the league by storm, finishing top of the league and been promoted to the first division.
They then went on to win the First Division in 1901 and 1906. Liverpool won back to back League titles in 1922 and 1923, but despite this, did not win another trophy until the 1946-47 season where manager at the time, George Kay, guided them to another League title. However, in the 1953-54 season they were relegated to the Second Division and had a change in manager in club legend Bill Shankly.
They returned to the First Division in 1962, and then quickly went on to win it again in 1964 and in 1965, won their first of many FA Cups. Liverpool completed the League and UEFA Cup double in 1973, followed by the FA Cup again the following year.
Shankly soon retired and was replaced by his assistant at the time, Bob Paisley. In his second season, brought another League and UEFA Cup double and had more success the following season, retaining the league and finally winning the European Cup.
Paisleys achievements continued throughout his role, winning a total of 21 trophies with the club and retired in 1983 becoming one of the best managers in the club’s history. He was then replaced by his assistant Joe Fagan who was also successful, being the first ever English club to win the League, League Cup, and European Cup treble.
However, disaster struck in 1985 after what was meant to be an exciting European Cup final against Juventus at the Heysel stadium, fans charged down a fence which separated fans. This caused a retaining wall to collapse leading to 39, mostly Italian, deaths prior to kick off and is now known as the Heysel Stadium disaster.
Liverpool went on to lose the match 1-0. Because of the incident, English clubs were banned from the competition for five years, whilst Liverpool received a 10-year ban, although it was reduced to six. After Fagan announced his retirement, Kenny Dalglish was appointed player-manager and despite winning five trophies, his tenure was overshadowed by the Hillsborough disaster on 15 April 1989.
Overall 96 people died after the incident against Nottingham Forest, as hundreds of fans crushed others into the fencing and leading to them losing their lives. Because of this, the all-seater stadium for top-division clubs was introduced to ensure the disaster does not happen again.
Due to the disaster, Dalglish retired and was replaced by Graeme Souness and went on to win the 1992 FA Cup. After a couple of managerial changes, Liverpool landed Gerard Houllier as their boss, and won a treble in his second full season in charge in the way of the FA Cup, League Cup, and UEFA Cup, but after failing to mount a real title challenge in the 2003-04 season, he was replaced by Rafael Benítez.
Under his managerial control, Liverpool took part in one of the most exciting games in UEFA Champions League history, famously beating AC Milan on penalties after coming from 3-0 down to draw with the Italian side. They then won the FA Cup the following season in yet another entertaining final, also beating West Ham in a penalty shootout.
In the 2006-07 season, Liverpool were taken over by American businessmen Tom Hicks and George Gillett but failed to win a Premier League title under their ownership. After Benitez then guided Liverpool to one of their worst league finishes since the Premier League began and failing to qualify for the Champions League, he was sacked and replaced by Roy Hodgson.
The club then went into more financial trouble and were on the verge of bankruptcy at the start of the 2010-11 season and therefore the owners were forced to sell the club to John W. Henry. Hodgson however left the club shortly later after a poor start to the season and was replaced by Dalglish for a second time.
Despite winning the League Cup and reaching the FA Cup final, an eighth placed finish led to his dismissal and former Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers took over. Rodgers mounted a real title charge in the 2013-14 season, which came as a shock to football fans, but the famous slip by club legend Steven Gerrard and a loss of momentum restricted them to settle for second to Manchester City.
In the following season, disappointment continued as they finished sixth and Rodgers was dismissed early in the 2015-16 season. The charismatic Jurgen Klopp was given the job and guided them to both the League Cup and Europa League Finals respectively but failed to win either. He brought an intense passing and pressing style of play to Anfield, which is admirable to watch when it is perfected.
Liverpool had a slow start to the 2017/18 campaign but have quality with in their ranks with electric players like Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino. Liverpool continue to be one of the most successful clubs in England and they hope to mount a title challenge to silence the doubters of Klopp’s ways. The Reds are bound to excite for years to come.
After returning to the Champions League following a third-place finish in the 2016-17, no one would have expected the season Liverpool were to have in 2017-18. It all started with a handful of interesting signings in the summer of 2017 – Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Andrew Robertson and Dominic Solanke all joined from Arsenal, Hull City and Chelsea respectively.
But the new addition that caught the most eyes was of Chelsea flop Mohamed Salah, who arrived at Anfield for nearly £40m on 1 July. Many would have laughed if they were told that the now-named ‘Egyptian King’ was to go on and score 44 goals throughout the campaign whilst breaking unthinkable records along the way.
The PFA Player and Players’ Player of the Year helped Liverpool to a place in the top four to confirm Champions League qualification for next season, but the club’s performance in the European competition is what grabbed all the headlines.
Liverpool impressed as they beat Hoffenheim 6-3 on aggregate in the play-offs before topping Group E on 12 points in which they achieved two 7-0 wins against Maribor and Spartak Moscow. Then there was the knockout stages and the goals kept on coming.
A 5-0 aggregate win against AS Roma, where all five were scored in the away leg, saw them move on to the quarter-finals against runaway Premier League champions Manchester City. The spirit continued to grow amongst supporters, more chants were being made and then came a 5-1 aggregate win following a stunning 3-0 first-leg victory at Anfield.
Jürgen Klopp’s side avoided a major cock-up as they defeated Barcelona’s conquerors AS Roma 7-6 on aggregate in the semi-finals, despite the Italian side winning 4-2 in the second leg and going one goal away from dumping Liverpool out, and then their place in the Kiev final was secured versus none other than Real Madrid.
Liverpool were going for a sixth trophy; Real Madrid were chasing a record-breaking third success in a row. But on such a momentous occasion, it quickly turned into a nightmare for ‘keeper Lorius Karius as he made two major blunders, on either side of a Gareth Bale wonder-goal, to help the Spanish giants to a 3-1 win.
The £75m signing of Virgil van Dijk certainly helped Liverpool’s achievements throughout the campaign, and Jürgen Klopp’s squad will be even stronger when August 2018 comes around following the anticipated arrival of Naby Keita and new Brazilian Fabinho bolstering the midfield – two important signings after Emre Can departed on a free transfer to Juventus.

Anfield information and facts
Liverpool’s home at Anfield is situated on Anfield Road, Liverpool; Postcode: L4 0TH.
It’s capacity of 54,074 makes it the sixth largest football stadium in England and the largest outside of London and Manchester.
Since being opened in 1884, the stadium has been used primarily as a football venue. However, for its first eight years of use, it was the home of the Reds’ local rivals, Everton, who played their matches there until 1892, when Liverpool became the occupants of the ground. In fact, Everton became the first team to win a league title at Anfield during the 1890/91 season, a year before the creation of Liverpool Football Club.
Anfield is positioned less than a mile way from Everton’s current home at Goodison Park.
The stadium’s record attendance of 61,905 was set in February 1952 during a 2-1 FA Cup victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers. Anfield’s lowest crowd is believed to be of 1,000 spectators during a match against Loughborough in December 1895.
Liverpool and Everton are not the only two teams to have used Anfield as a home venue. The venue hosted four matches during EURO 1996 and has held several England and Wales international matches. In 1971, Manchester United were forced to play their opening match of their league season against Arsenal at the stadium, after being banned for two matches from their Old Trafford home due to a hooliganism-based incident.
Several different sports have been played at Anfield throughout its history, including basketball, tennis, rugby league and boxing.
It was also used during Liverpool’s 2008 celebrations of becoming the City of Culture, with The Zutons, Kaiser Chiefs and Paul McCartney all performing in front 36,000 spectators.
There is no parking available at the stadium for non-permit holders, meaning that the best way to travel to the ground is via the use of public transport.
The nearest train station is Kirkdale Station, located just under a mile and a half away and takes around 30 minutes to walk to the ground from. Liverpool Lime Street station, which can be directly accessed via London Euston, is also only two miles away and is walkable in just under 45 minutes.
