Liverpool History

John Houlding bought Anfield in 1892 and proposed increasing the rent of the stadium to Everton by between £100,000 and £250,000 a year. But Everton, who had been playing at Anfield for seven years, refused to pay the Anfield rent increase Houlding wanted, so Everton moved to a new stadium, Goodison Park.

Disgusted with the attitude of Everton’s managers, John Houlding founded Liverpool Football Club on March 15, 1892, to play at Anfield which was vacant. The club’s original name was to be Everton Football Club, Athletic Grounds, Ltd or Everton Athletic. Still, it was changed to Liverpool Football Club when the FA refused to recognize the team as Everton. A six-time Champions League winner, it is the most successful English club in the competition’s history, winning its first title at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome in the 1976-77 season against Borussia Mönchengladbach of Germany by the score of 3-1. The following year, he won the championship for the second time by beating Belgium’s Brugge 1-0 at the legendary Wembley Stadium in London.

After two consecutive titles for Nottingham Forest in the 1978-79 and 1979-80 seasons, confirming the English dominance in European competition, Liverpool reached the final again in the 1980-81 season, beating Real Madrid by the score of 1-0, in the Parc des Princes stadium in Paris.

Before that, however, following the tradition of European clubs, which at the time, did not value the dispute for the Intercontinental title, Liverpool gave up playing in the final of the Intercontinental Club Cup with Boca Juniors in 1978. In 1981, Liverpool played in the final of the Intercontinental Cup with Flamengo, with the final result of 3-0 for the Brazilian team. The Reds won their fourth European title in the 1983-84 season against AS Roma. The game ended in a 1-1 draw, with the Reds winning, on penalties, 4-2 at the Olympic Stadium in Rome. They faced South American champions Independiente of Argentina in the 1984 Intercontinental Cup final but were again defeated, with the score 1-0 to the Argentines.

2004-05 Season

The club won the continent’s most coveted trophy again only in the 2004-05 season, in a legendary final against Milan in the match that became known worldwide as The Miracle of Istanbul, and what many consider the best Champions League match of all time. times.

In this game, the Reds managed to take the game to the penalty shootout after ending the first half losing 3-0, with a great performance by captain Steven Gerrard, named UEFA’s best player in the same year. On penalties prevailed the star of Polish goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek, who saved two kicks, leaving the score at 3-2 and giving Liverpool their fifth Champions League trophy at the Athens Olympics. The year 2005 was just not perfect for Liverpool because they lost the FIFA Club World Cup to São Paulo, by the score of 1-0. Although Liverpool exerted pressure throughout the match, they could not avoid the Brazilian club’s third world championship.

In the season that followed their fifth Champions League triumph, Liverpool was crowned champions of the FA Cup and runners-up in the Premier League. In the Champions League, he went far from defending the title and fell disastrously against Benfica in the Round of 16 with two defeats.

Season 2007

In the following seasons, Liverpool experienced a crisis, going four consecutive seasons without playing in the Champions League. However, in the 11-12 season, he broke his six-year stint without winning a title, winning his 8th Premier League Cup title, defeating Cardiff in the final. In the 2013-14 season, Liverpool almost won the Premier League and ended the 24-year fast (at the time). Liverpool, which had Sturridge, Sterling, Coutinho, and Suarez, fought intensely with their rivals Manchester City, Arsenal, and Chelsea, reaching the leadership of the Premier League by beating City 3-2 in a fantastic game. In this way, Liverpool only needed to lift the title after 24 years, but in a game against Chelsea, José Mourinho put his team completely back (creating on this day the term “stop the bus” *stop the bus, in allusion to the formation of players inside the defence area) causing one of the biggest names in the club’s history, Steven Gerrard, to slip and let Demba Ba score a goal. Chelsea won that game 2-0, and later City would become champions. The following season Liverpool had very short participation in the Champions League and was eliminated in the group stage.

Season 2015-16

In 2015-16, under the command of Jürgen Klopp, he reached the final of the UEFA Europa League after eliminating Borussia Dortmund in a historic game in the quarter-finals, having won 4-3 in a comeback after leaving behind with a score of 3. -1 in favour of the Dortmund team at Anfield Stadium, but lost the title in a disappointing final against Sevilla that ended with the score of 3-1.

2018-19 season

In the 2018-19 season, Liverpool, after a difficult group stage where they faced PSG, Napoli, and Red Star qualifying with 9 points, made a great campaign in the knockout stage with the right to a historic comeback over Barcelona (after losing in the game first leg of the semi-final 3-0 at Camp Nou, managed to reverse the score at Anfield with a 4-0 rout), which guaranteed a return to the Champions League finals.

The 2019-20 season was marked by the victory of the Premier League that ended a long fast. Liverpool has not been English champions since 1990 and then lifted the national trophy again after 30 years of a long wait. Liverpool’s campaign was also historic. Throughout the 1st round, the Reds remained unbeaten with a record that had never been seen before 18 wins and 1 draw. The club remained unbeaten until the 27th round when they suffered an unexpected 3-0 against relegated Watford.

As the end of the championship approached, the fans were doing the math for the title. With a big advantage over the 2nd placed, Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, it was certain that the title would happen in advance. Interestingly, the title was confirmed without the need for the club to enter the field, since, with the defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, City was no longer able to reach the Reds’ score, even with 5 games remaining at the end of the championship. Liverpool ended the 2019-20 Premier League with 99 points and the following campaign: 32 wins, 3 draws, and 3 defeats.

The team completed an unprecedented trio of two domestic cups, the League Cup and FA Cup, and the UEFA Cup in the 2000–01 season. However, winning a threesome was nothing new, as in the 1983-84 season they were victorious in the Champions League, Premier League, and League Cup. This was the first trio of major titles to be achieved by an English club.
