Short History:

Liverpool FC actually began life as Everton in 1878, formed by John Houlding, a local businessman, and playing at Anfield. In 1892 Everton left John Houlding with Anfield and no football team. With the aid of a loan Houlding then proceeded to build Liverpool FC with a team of Scottish players, nick named the 'Macs'.

John McKenna was appointed the clubs manager, who continued to build the team. After their first year McKenna decided it was time to apply for entrance into the Football League. Although attaining promotion to the first division during this time, Everton FC continued to out perform Liverpool and at the end of the first season was relegated to the second division.

It was not until 1904 that Liverpool began to perform. After a number of years relegation they won their second championship in 1904 and in celebration of this the club directors built the Spion Kop. Two seasons earlier Liverpool had ridded themselves of their blue and white quartered shirts in favor of their famous red shirts.

Bill Shankly is of course part of the Liverpool FC legend. Serving the club from 1959 to 1973 and doing it his way. For the next 14 years he turned Liverpool FC into one of the worlds greatest clubs

By 1963/64 they won their sixth championship, and the following year added the FA Cup to their list of titles, beating Leeds in the final. They continued their run of success with another league title in 1965/66.

Shankley gave way to Bob Paisley gain the club the League Championship and the UEFA Cup. Next came Joe Fagan, the club gaining their third League Title, Cup and European Cup under his managership.

The clubs first player-manager was Kenny Dalglish who followed Joe Fagan. During Dalglishes managership the club won the League and the FA Cup. Wining the League again in 1987/88 followed a number of year lean playing time.

Graeme Souness was the clubs next manager and some believe that it was during his managership that the club performance declined. This disastrous period was due to turn during 1995 when Roy Evans took over and immediately won the League Cup in his first full season in charge in 1995. Although the team began to expand with new players he failed to gain any major trophies. Then in 1998 Gerard Houllierwas recruited in a joint managerial role with Evans who resigned from the position early in the season.

Houllier went on to develop the team. He was rewarded with five trophies in 2001 as Liverpool remained unbeaten in all cup competitions that season and qualified for the Champions League. Under the managership of Houllier, by the historic treble winning season of 2000-01, and the League Cup in 2002-3! Houlier was replaced in 2004 by Rafael Benitez ( manager todate) The most recent addition to the trophy cabinet is the European Cup after the amazing win in the 2008 final. As only the third club ever to win the trophy five times Liverpool will now keep the cup for all time.
