A brief history of Liverpool

Foundation and early years

The birth of Liverpool FC

Liverpool began its history because of a controversy. This shows us that sometimes disputes bring happy consequences. The Everton FC committee and club president John Houlding, who also owned Andfield Stadium had a controversy and the Everton club moved to Goodison Park in 1892, resulting in Houlding having an empty Anfield Stadium with no tema to call it home.

The happy consequence, as we have said, was the foundation of Liverpool FC, which was initially called Everton F.C. and Athletic Grounds Ltd, although The Football Association, FA,refused to acknowledge Everton Athletic having already recognised Everton FC and Houlding had to rename the team. Liverpool FC was born in March 1892 and got promotion to the First Division in their third season.

The first sixty years of the club

Liverpool would have been unrecognisable to modern fans however, as they wore blue and white quartered shirts until 1896, when they finally adopted their classic red shirts and white shorts.

Tom Watson was appointed to manager in 1896 and he was the first ever manager to steer Liverpool to sustained success, winning the First Division in 1901 and 1906. It was in 1901 that the club decided to make the famous liver bird its badge, although this was not incorporated onto the Liverpool kits yet.

First Division victories followed in 1922 and in 1923 after a first appearance loss to Burnley in the 1914 FA Cup Final. In the inter-war years, Liverpool mostly finished in the middle of the league, only winning the league again in 1947.

This victory was short-lived, as performances slumped and relegation came in 1954. The Liver bird, which was in the badge already, was incorporated into the kit in 1955.  The Liverpool team stayed in that second level division for five seasons before a certain man was appointed as manager.

The Bill Shankly Era

The Boot Room

That man was Bill Shankly and he was appointed in 1959. During his first season, Shankly released a whopping twenty four players and transformed a boot storage room into the most important room ever for Liverpool FC: The Boot Room.

The Boot Room became a meeting place for the club’s most important people. The original members were Bill Shankly and Reuben Bennett, Joe Fagan, Ronnie Moran, Bob Paisley and Tom Saunders. Of these six, only two were never managers of Liverpool, Bennett and Saunders, showing the importance that this room truly had.

The members were able to rebuild Liverpool football team thanks to the relaxed meetings in the Boot Room, where each person had a specific role to play and area of expertise. It was the start of the second period of sustained success for the club, and many attribute it to the magic of the room.

The building of a massive club

Promotion to the First Division came in 1962 and the title came to Anfield two seasons later, also earning them European football for the first time ever. At this point, around 50,000 Liverpool faithful were turning up to Anfield every week and the famous chant “You’ll never walk alone” was also adopted around this time.

Shankly had another club defining moment of genius in 1964. In a game against Anderlecht, the players wore a full red kit from socks to shirts. When Ronnie Yates first wore it, Shankly allegedly said “Christ, Ronnie, you look awesome, terrifying. You look 7 ft tall.” The classic Liverpool shirt was born.

The next few years were stable for Liverpool football team. The 1964-65 FA Cup victory against Leeds, 2-1, in extra time was a highlight as well as the European Cup Winners Cup final in 1966.They won the first division title once again in 1966, the first in their completely red historic Liverpool kit but the next few years, they were less successful.

Kevin Keegan

In 1971, a young midfielder was signed to Liverpool Football Club by the name of Kevin Keegan and he was soon to be a Liverpool legend. He cost 33 thousand pounds and came from fourth division team Scunthorpe United.

At training games, Shankly quickly noticed Keegan’s free movements in midfield so he decided to play him up front next to target man John Toshack in a training match and immediately a deadly strike partnership was born.

Keegan has said that their understanding on the pitch, despite very little socialising off the pitch, was almost unnatural and their strike partnership was very profitable for Liverpool’s team.

On the 14th August 1971, Keegan made his debut in the iconic Liverpool kit and scored his first goal after only twelve minutes. He scored nine goals that season as well as several assists and many thought he would bring the First Division title back to Anfield.

Two years later, he did, and Liverpool were champions in 1973. Still wearing the all-red kit, Keegan was an integral part of the team, as was a Liverpool Academy graduate, Phil Thompson.

The amount of talent that was in the squad as well as being managed by the great Shankly was more than enough to be crowned champions in England and they were also successful in Europe, winning the European UEFA Cup with Keegan scoring two goals in the final.

That season, Shankly’s most successful, Liverpool made it 21 successive home league wins, a record that stood until Liverpool, under Jurgen Klopp, beat it in 2020.

In 1974, the Scottish manager’s Shankly's last season, they came second in the league and won the FA Cup. The Scot was hailed as a hero by fans and will go down in the history of the club as its greatest manager of the twentieth century, by quite a margin.

Fifteen years of continued success

The end of the seventies

Bob Paisley was the next manager of the Liverpool team, an original member of the Boot Room and recommended by Bill Shankly. His first season, unsurprisingly, did not yield any trophies but his second season was a lot more successful.

In the final game of the season, Liverpool were a goal down against Wolves with fourteen minutes left and needed a result to clinch the title. Kevin Keegan, John Toshack and Ray Kennedy stepped up to the plate and scored the goals that brought a ninth league title to Anfield.

In the same season, Liverpool beat Barcelona in the semi final of the European Cup set them up with a final against FC Bruges. The Liverpool team went 2-0 down in the first half of the first leg but a three second half goals and a 1-1 draw in the return game meant they lifted their second ever European UEFA Cup trophy in 1976.

Paisley’s tenure was very consistent, and Liverpool won for the first time the European Cup, the Champions League in 1977 and then in 1978 and 1981.

Kit Sponsors

In 1979, Liverpool made an historic step and became the first professional English team to get a sponsor on the chest, and Hitachi made it to the front of the famous all red Liverpool shirt.

They also introduced a third kit for the first time, meaning they had the completely red kit as the home kit, white shirt and black shorts as the away kit and a completely yellow kit for their third kit.

Over the next seasons, the white shirt became the third kit or was not included at all, while the yellow kit became the away kit. The kits also went through small modifications over the decades, for example narrow white stripes being included on the iconic red Liverpool shirt in 1983.

Ian Rush

The 1981-82 season proved to be a successful one for Liverpool football team as they won the League Cup and the First Division.It was the breakout season for several big Liverpool players, most notably Ian Rush.

He scored 30 goals in all competitions that season and it was the beginning of a prolific goalscoring spell at Liverpool. The next season, Liverpool football team defended their title, Rush scoring a whopping 24 goals in the league.

He is one of Liverpool’s greatest players ever and is still currently the top scorer with 346 goals. Few sights were as great for Liverpool fans as Ian Rush in the historic red kit running with his arms outstretched, and a moustache sat atop his broad smile.

His best season came in 1983-84 when he scored an incredible 47 goals in all competitions, including 32 in the league. This was the first season that an English team completed a treble, as Rush’s goals led to the Reds winning the League Cup, the First Division and the European Cup, their fourth.

Kenny Dalglish

There was one other player who featured for Liverpool heavily in the eighties who could rival Ian Rush as the fan favourite, and his name is Kenny Dalglish.

An attacker, the reason he was so loved by Liverpool fans as a player was not necessarily his goals, but rather his general play, his ability to glide past opponents and make so much space for his teammate.

He formed a potent partnership with Ian Rush that led to several trophies. He would create space and draw defenders and Rush would get in the hole and finish his chances.

In an official poll called “Top 100 players who shook the Kop”, it was not Steven Gerrard or Ian Rush who topped the rankings but the Scotsman. To be valued over every other player in the history of such an illustrious club as Liverpool speaks volumes about the player Dalglish was.

With him the Liverpool team won three Champions League and two FA Cups, among other competitions.

Last First Division title

In 1987, Liverpool introduced a grey kit instead of a yellow kit as their away kit. The classic all red kit was still the undisputed symbol of Liverpool football team.

In its first season, Liverpool won the First Division and lost the FA Cup final and in its second, they lost the First Division on the final day and won the FA Cup.

Then in 1990, they won the First Division for the last time. Kenny Dalglish was the manager and John Barnes, a Jamaican born left winger, was the star man. He is also in the running for best Liverpool player in the club’s history and only lost out to Dalglish in the poll of best ever Liverpool players.

He was Liverpool’s most technically gifted player in history and his powerful dribbling were a joy to watch. Sadly, he faced racism throughout his career, but he dealt with it with genuine grace and good humour. An incredible photo exists of John Barnes, in the classic all red kit that he did so much for, casually backheeling a banana skin that was thrown at him, and he was a proper role model.

The Premier League era

Steven Gerrard

Although the Premier League has been difficult for Liverpool football team, one player has been an incredibly loyal and talented servant to the football club. His name is Steven Gerrard, a box to box midfielder who spent his entire career with Liverpool.

It is impossible for any Liverpool fan not to remember him with the famous red kit on, kissing that bird on his chest. He scored so many important goals for the club, carrying his team singlehandedly sometimes, and he is top of the list of footballers who have never won a Premier League title but deserve to.

Miracle in Istanbul

Gerrard’s favourite match in a Liverpool shirt is undoubtedly that special, special night in 2005. Playing against AC Milan, who were favourites, in the Champions League final, Liverpool were trailing within the first minute and were three down before half time.

All looked lost, but Liverpool football team did not give up, and an unbelievable six minute spell brought the score level thanks to goals from Gerrard, Smicer and Xabi Alonso. Extra time was goalless, and Andriy Shevchenko’s penalty was saved by Jerzy Dudek to complete the unlikeliest of comebacks and possibly the greatest ever comeback in one of football’s biggest games.

Recent success

After a long of time of disappointing Liverpool teams, Jurgen Klopp was appointed and he has slowly been building Liverpool back up to its previous grandeur. In 2019, they defeated Tottenham to claim their sixth European title and finally won in 2020 the Premier League thanks to players like Andy Robertson, Jordan Henderson and Sadio Mané.
