HistoryEdit

Liverpool won their first Football League championship in 1901, and their second in 1906. They played their first FA Cup final in 1914, losing 1–0 to Burnley. The last trophy they won was the EFL Cup in February 2012, after beating Cardiff City. They have also won the Champions League five times, the most of any British side. Their 5th success was in Istanbul in 2005. The game was won after Liverpool tied 3–3 with A.C. Milan, after being down 3–0 at half-time. The Reds then won the penalty shootout, partly due to goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek's saves. Liverpool F.C. have won England's top football league 18 times. The club's last league title win was the 1989/90 season.

Liverpool has had two tragedies in their history. The first was the Heysel Stadium disaster of 1985 and the second was the Hillsborough disaster in 1989, which lead to the deaths of 96 Liverpool fans.

Liverpool are widely regarded as one of the best clubs in the world.
