One of the most successful clubs in the United Kingdom. Founded in 1892 due to dispute between Everton FC Committee with John Holding as President of the Club who is also the owner of Anfield stadium. As a result of this opposition, Everton finally moved to Goodison Park stadium and John Holding made the Anfield stadium as Liverpool FC cage until now. The club was given the name of Everton FC and Athletic Grounds, Ltd.., Or Everton Athletic summarized, but the FA refused to admit there are two teams called Everton. Finally, in June 1892 John Houlding was eventually chose the name Liverpool FC. Liverpool incarnates a serious force in English football competition.

In his first season, Liverpool FC won the Lancashire League before eventually joining the Second Division League in season 1893/94. In his first season in Division II Premier League, Liverpool FC instantly become champions and entitled to promotion to the English League First Division (now Premier League). It did not take long for Liverpool to taste the title in the league, because in his first season in Division I of this (season 1900/01), Liverpool won the Division One success and repeat it again five years later. Liverpool FC won the league two successful consecutive seasons of 1921/22 and 1922/23 seasons, but did not get the trophy again until the 1946/47 season when the league won the title of the 5th. FA Cup Final first performed in 1914, although eventually they defeated Burnley 1-0. After wading Division I for more than 50 years, finally Liverpool FC in decline and relegated to the Second Division in season 1953/54.

Liverpool had struggled before finally coming of Bill Shankly as manager in December 1959. Shankly remodel massive team with 24 players off the old and use a room at Anfield stadium for a meeting coaching. The room is called 'The Boot Room' which successfully gave birth to the legendary Liverpool managers in the future. In this room that Bill Shankly and members of the 'Boot Room' like Bob Paisley, Joe Fagan and Reuben Bennett began to build the strength that makes Liverpool FC team envious enemies. The result of renovations carried out by Bill Shankly started off when the successful promotion to Division I in the 1961/62 season and became the champions league in the 1963/64 season. After winning the first FA Cup in 1965 and won the League in 1965/66 season, Bill Shankly managed to bring the League title and UEFA Cup in 1972/73 season. The next season, Bill Shankly managed to bring the FA Cup title after slaying Newcastle United 3-0. No one expected that the FA Cup title was the last offering of a Bill Shankly. Because all of a sudden Bill Shankly decided to retire. Players and Liverpudlian (nickname for Liverpool FC fan) tried to persuade, even the workers at Liverpool threatened to strike. But Bill Shankly fixed on the managerial position and handed the stick to his assistant Bob Paisley ie. Bill Shankly finally retired in 1974 and joined the Reds in the stands of The Kop.

Liverpool's triumph continued with Bill Shankly Bob Paisley who was then 55 years old. He served as manager of Liverpool FC from 1974 until 1983 and only in the early years of Bob Paisley can not provide a title for Liverpool FC. Over the past 9 years Bob Paisley served as manager of Liverpool FC, he gave a total of 21 trophies, including 3 Champions Cup, 1 UEFA Cup, 6 and 3 Premier League champions League Cup in a row. With all the title was not wrong when Bob Paisley became the most successful manager ever deal with English club. Not only successfully give the title for Liverpool FC, but Bob Paisley was also successful in performing the regeneration in Liverpool FC's body with the appearance of the young stars such as Graeme Souness, Alan Hansen, Kenny Dalglish and Ian Rush. Although Bob Paisley will inherit a young squad who are very great and talented, but with all the nicks that title would be very hard for any successor.

As a successor Bob Paisley, who retired in 1983, Joe Fagan who was then 62 years old, managed to offer for Liverpool's treble of League championship, League Cup winners and Champions Cup winners. Raihan makes Liverpool FC as a British football club that won three titles at once in a season. Unfortunately, the golden record was a little tarnished by the incident at the Heysel stadium. The incident happened before the Champions Cup final between Liverpool and Juventus FC, killing 39 people, mostly Juventus supporters. This incident resulted in the prohibition to all British football clubs to compete in Europe for 5 years. And Liverpool FC is prohibited followed all European competition for 10 years finally reduced to 6 years. In addition, 14 Liverpudlian plead guilty over the incident known as the Heysel tragedy. After that horrible incident, Joe Fagan decided to retire and give managerial staff next to Kenny Dalglish who was appointed as player-manager. Joe Fagan handed over the managerial duties to Kenny Dalglish Liverpool FC who had by this time become a great player but still have to prove the capability as a manager.

During the leadership of Kenny Dalglish, Liverpool FC was brought into the English Premier League champions 3 times and the FA Cup winners as much as 2 times, including a double degree Premier League champions and FA Cup winners in 1985/86 season. When not exposed to sanctions from UEFA, Liverpool FC can certainly be a serious contender to win the Champions Cup at the time. Liverpool FC's success in the leadership of Kenny Dalglish again overshadowed the other horrors of the Hillsborough tragedy. In the game the FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forrest on April 15, 1989, hundreds of spectators from outside the stadium broke into the stadium which resulted in Liverpudlian who was in the stands jammed the stadium fence. This resulted in 94 Liverpudlian died at the scene, a Liverpudlian died 4 days later in hospital and 1 other Liverpudlian has died after a coma for 4 years. As a result of the Hillsborough tragedy was the British government to do research again about the safety factor of football stadiums in the country. Known as the Taylor Report, states that the cause of the Hillsborough tragedy of this is an audience factor that exceeds the capacity of the stadium due to a lack of anticipation of the security service. Eventually the British government issued a law requiring every first division club British to abolish the stands stood up. After becoming a living testimony to the terrible tragedy of Heysel and Hillsborough, 'King' Kenny Dalglish never be separated from the trauma that descend himself. Finally on February 22, 1990 he announced his resignation as manager of Liverpool FC. The announcement is very surprising world of football at the time, because Liverpool FC is competing with Arsenal in the race for the English Premier League title. The reasons mentioned by Kenny Dalglish at the time was no longer able to deal with pressure in menahkodai Liverpool FC. Over the past few weeks are handled by Liverpool FC's first team coach Ronnie Moran before finally Liverpool FC appoint Graeme Souness as the next manager. 'King' Kenny Dalglish later remembered as the greatest legends of Liverpool FC as very successful both as player and manager.

Departure of 'King' Kenny Dalglish and 2 horrible tragedy (Heysel and Hillsborough) seem to provide trauma, punishment or curse deep for Liverpool Football Club. The arrival of Graeme Souness had not changed the fortunes of Liverpool FC. Although Souness could give the FA Cup title in 1992, but with the player's transfer policy is not good and the implementation of the strategy a little confusing to make Liverpool's inconsistent season. Another thing that worsen the relationship Souness and Liverpool is when Souness told his health recovery process after a heart operation to the newspaper The Sun. As it is known that people in Merseyside boycott of The Sun newspaper that often cornered Liverpudlian about Hillsborough tragedy. On January 28, 1994 Graeme Souness resigned as manager of Liverpool FC after eliminated from the League Cup and FA Cup. Coach Roy Evans was appointed as the next manager of Liverpool FC. Liverpool FC are in the order of the standings to eighth worst result for 29 years. Although the achievement title Graeme Souness is not successful, but his tenure was born many young talents such as: Robbie Fowler, Steve McManaman, Jamie Redknapp, Rob Jones and David James.

The next Liverpool manager Roy Evans is a senior coach who has been with Liverpool FC for over 30 years. In the 1994/95 season ranked fifth Liverpool English Premier League and won the League Cup by beating Bolton Wanderers by a score of 2-1. Roy Evans managed to restore the hallmark of Liverpool's game of 'pass and move'. But the beautiful game beautifully and Liverpool FC at this time is not balanced enough determination and aggressiveness of the players, so the Reds in the Roy Evans is often called 'Spice Boys'. In addition to the more mature players such as Robbie Fowler, Steve McManaman and Jamie Redknapp, on the coach Roy Evans emerged a young talent called Michael Owen who scored 18 goals and became the PFA Young Player of the Year Award in 1998.

In the 1998/99 season draw Liverpool FC coach Gerard Houllier French to partner with Roy Evans as 'joint manager'. But Roy Evans was not suitable in collaboration with Gerard Houllier, so resigned in November 1998. After becoming sole manager, Houllier completely overhauled the team by including players such as Sami Hyypia, Stephan Henchoz, Markus Babbel, Dietmar Hamann, Gary McAllister and Emile Heskey. In addition to appearing young star Michael Owen, Houllier also succeeded in promoting young talent with incredible talent named Steven Gerrard. In 2011 the best year Liverpool FC after a slump of achievement in previous years. This year Liverpool FC won the League Cup, FA Cup, UEFA Cup, Shield and Charity Cup UEFA Super Cup. This success led to a glimmer of hope for Liverpool to reach the English League title last won in 1990. In 2003 Liverpool FC won the League Cup and was ranked 4th in 1993/94 season to be eligible for Champions League qualification. Although it managed to provide a title for Liverpool FC, but the tactics employed last seen Gerard Houllier could not compete for the Premiership title. Tactics to survive and rely on counter-attack very easily anticipated by the opponent, so that on May 24, 2004 Gerard Houllier was replaced by Rafael Benitez.

Rafael Benitez came to Liverpool FC after successfully bringing Valencia won the Spanish league 2 times and UEFA Cup winners. Hope Liverpudlian to become Premiership champions again soared after Benitez managed to take Liverpool FC win the Champions League for the 5th time. In the final, which is remembered as the greatest party of all time, Liverpool FC beat AC Milan 0-3 after lagging in the first round. But goals from captain Steven Gerrard, Vladimir Smicer and Xabi Alonso penalty managed to bring Liverpool FC to the round of extra time and penalties. Liverpool FC goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek a hero after successfully holding penalty Shevchenko. The victory in the final of the Champions League is the primary reason for the captain and living legend Steven Gerrard Liverpool FC to not move to another club. The decision was welcomed by the Liverpudlian. Liverpool FC were then taken to be a champion Rafael Benitez's European Super Cup by beating UEFA Cup champions CSKA Moscow with a score of 3-1. FA Cup in 2006 became the last trophy presented by Rafael Benitez for Liverpool FC. On the way to the FA Cup final, Liverpool beat Luton Town FC with a score of 5-3, Manchester 1-0, Birmingham City beat Chelsea 7-0 and 2-1 in the semi-finals.

FA Cup Final is referred to as the 'Gerrard Final him' and was recorded as the best final in the modern era of the FA Cup. After winning the Community Shield Cup in 2006 and managed to reach the Champions League final 2007, subsequent seasons into the season without a title for Rafael Benitez and Liverpool FC. The only encouraging news for Liverpool is the return of 'King' Kenny Dalglish to Liverpool FC Youth Academy gave birth in 2009. Rafael Benitez finally berhaenti on June 3, 2010 and was replaced by Roy Hodgson. During the leadership of Rafael Benitez, Liverpool FC has 2 times the transition ownership of the club. The first was in 2007 when it was bought by George Gillett and Tom Hicks and in 2010 when Liverpool FC take control from the New England Sports Ventures owned by John W. Henry.

At a press conference Roy Hodgson told the club are very proud to be able to handle registration for Liverpool FC and can not wait to meet with the players, Liverpudlian and wanted to get to work at Melwood. But the situation at Liverpool FC at the time was still highly uncertain because it is in the transition of ownership. Frenzied news about the bankruptcy club and a prolonged transition process greatly affects the atmosphere in Liverpool FC at the time. Liverpool FC finally started the 2010/11 season with a very bad. Until mid-October Liverpool FC in the relegation zone and lost to second division club Northampton Town. In addition, Liverpool FC to face the threat reduction 9 points from the FA if they can not resolve the internal situation. Finally in January 2011 Liverpool FC and Roy Hodgson have agreed to terminate cooperation and subsequently manager position held by the 'King' Kenny Dalglish for a 2nd time until the end of the season.

Precisely January 8, 2011 'King' Kenny Dalglish officially appointed as manager of Liverpool FC for the 2nd time. Although in their opening match defeat in the FA Cup, but the 'King' Kenny Dalglish managed to restore the performance of players and the typical 'pass and move' Liverpool FC. The proof is 'King' Kenny Dalglish managed to lift Liverpool FC from the relegation zone to a position 6 English Premier League standings. These results are not out of courage 'King' Kenny Dalglish to sell star players like Fernando Torres then bought Luis Suarez of Ajax Amsterdam and Andy Carroll from Newcastle United. Courage in the case of young players such as installing: Martin Kelly, Jay Spearing and Danny Wilson was decent thumbs up. Raihan is what makes many people insist that 'King' Kenny Dalglish on a permanent contract as manager of Liverpool FC.
