The Journey Of Liverpool Fc In The Premier League

Liverpool Fc is one club whose credentials precede them wherever they go. They have scooped the most trophies in European football tournaments, a record yet to be broken by any other English football club. The clubs home ground is Anfield, a stadium they have played in since they came into existence as a club.



The success story of Liverpool FC began in 1892 when the club was formed and later joined the European Football League in 1893. It didnt take them a while to rise to prominence in both European and English football. This was around 1970 through the 1980s when the club managed to bag 11 titles in the English league and about 7 trophies in the European football tournaments. It is this long and continuing success record that makes liverpool fc match tickets prized possessions of the fans that can get hold of them especially for the home games.

But life has not always been smooth for the club. Initially it was founded from a dispute between the then Everton club president, John Houlding, and the board overrunning Everton. A stalemate was reached, and Everton relocated to a different ground leaving Houlding behind and his property, Anfield. It was from here that he started the Liverpool FC and recruited shrewd managers like Bob Paisley and Bill Shankly, who saw the club through several wins.

Unforeseen disasters that have befallen the club include the 1985 collapse of Heysel Stadium wall that claimed lives of 39 fans, mostly Italian and Juventus fans, who were watching a match Liverpool was playing. A second tragedy occurred when 96 Liverpool fans died in at Hillsborough when too many fans were let into the grounds. This led to the adaptation of the clubs slogan, Youll Never Walk Alone, as a tribute to the fallen fans of Liverpool.

After that solemn moment in history, Liverpool picked itself up from the ground and surged forward. In their history, they have managed to scoop over 5 European Cups, 3 UEFA Super Cups, 3 UEFA Cups, 7 FA Cups, 18 League titles and 15 Community Shields (FA). By 2014, Liverpool was ranked 9th as one of the highest earning clubs in Europe. By 2015, their net worth was well over $982m, giving the club position 8 in the most valuable clubs in Europe.
