Reasons why you should support
Liverpool FC. (or not support Manchester United)
Liverpool is the most successful club in Britain. No argument about that. No matter how Manchester United fans rave about their team, they cannot deny that Liverpool FC has won more silverwares than the rivals from the Manchester. The 18 league championships Liverpool FC has won is still an English record, 7 more than Manchester United. Besides that, the Mersey Reds have also won the European Cup 4 times, thats 3 times more than United.
Liverpool FC has won the league championship in every decade since the 1960s, the only team to have achieved this feat. Manchester United's title in 1993 was their first in 26 years (OH MINE! that is real long)
Liverpool FC is not the only good side on Merseyside, Everton's the other. However, LFC has won MUCH MUCH MORE honours than their neighbour across Stanley Park. Liverpool and Everton has been fierce rivals for more than a century now.
LFC has won every available European trophies except one. The only European trophy that the Reds have failed to capture is the European Cup Winners' Cup.
For 36 years, Liverpool has not finished lower than 8th in the top division. During this duration, they won 13 League championships and finished second on 8 occasions.
Kenny Daglish, Ian Rush, Kevin Keegan, Roger Hunt, Graeme Souness, Tommy Smith, David Fairclough, Emlyn Hughes, Ray Clemence and Alan Hansen are just a few distinguised players who have donned the famous Red jerseys.
"You'll Never Walk Alone" has been Liverpool FC's anthem since the sixties. Click for the lyrics of the stirring song sung at every Anfield match.
Kevin Keegan once said,"The only thing I fear is missing an open goal in front of the Kop. I would die if that were to happen. When they start singing 'You'll Never Walk Alone' my eyes start to water. There have been times when I've actually been crying while I've been playing".
When asked about the "This is Anfield" plaque which greets the players when they come out of the tunnel onto the pitch, Bill Shankly said, "It's there to remind our lads who they're playing for, and to remind the opposition who they're playing against."
Joe Fagan is the only manager in the history of English football to win 3 major trophies in one season. He did it in 1984 by winning the European Cup, League Cup and the League Championship.
