Liverpool F.C.

Liverpool Football Club is the most successful English football team, having won 4 European Cups and 18 league (English Premier League, formerly First Division) titles. Their home ground is Anfield , about three miles from the city centre of Liverpool. The club was founded on March 15, 1892 by John Houlding, the owner of Anfield. Houlding decided to formed his own team after Everton FC moved away from Anfield.

The club was especially dominant from the late 1970s into the 1980s. Great players from this time include Ray Clemence[?], Mark Lawrenson[?], Graeme Souness[?], Ian Callaghan[?], Phil Neal[?], Kevin Keegan[?], Kenny Dalglish (102 Caps) and Ian Rush[?] (335 Goals).

The club was also present at two of the biggest tragedies in European football - at Heysel in 1985 and Hillsborough in 1989.

They completed an unprecedented treble of two domestic cups (the League Cup and the FA Cup) and the UEFA Cup in the 2000/01 season.
