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 won the Lancashire League before joining the Second Division League in season 1893/94. In his first season in Division II Premier League, Liverpool FC became an instant champion and reserve the right to promotion to the Premier 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 and 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 it won the league title to 5. 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 Bill Shankly as manager in December 1959. Shankly overhaul a massive team with 24 players off the old and use a room at Anfield stadium to hold a meeting of coaching. This room is on call 'The Boot Room' which successfully gave birth to the legendary Liverpool managers at a later date. 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 of Liverpool FC are the envy of the enemy team. The results of the renovations done by Bill Shankly coming to fruition when the successful promotion to Division I in the 1961/62 season and won the league in season 1963/64. After winning the first FA Cup in 1965 and won the League in the 1965/66 season, Bill Shankly managed to dedicate League title and UEFA Cup in 1972/73 season. The next season, Bill Shankly managed to present 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 of a sudden Bill Shankly decided to retire. Players and Liverpool (the nickname for fans of Liverpool FC) tried to persuade, even the workers at Liverpool threatened to strike. But Bill Shankly remain on the managerial position and handed the stick to his assistant of Bob Paisley. Bill Shankly eventually retired in 1974 and joined Liverpool in the stands the Kop.
As the successor to 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. This achievement makes Liverpool FC as a British football club that won three titles at once in a season. Unfortunately, it's a little golden record tarnished by an 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. Liverpool FC and barred from all European competition for 10 years finally reduced to six years. In addition, 14 Liverpudlian admitting guilt for the incident known as the Heysel tragedy. After that horrible incident, Joe Fagan decided to retire and provide managerial baton next to Kenny Dalglish who was appointed as player-manager. Joe Fagan hand over managerial duties to Kenny Dalglish of Liverpool FC who by then had become a great player but still have to prove the capability as a manager.
During the leadership of Kenny Dalglish, Liverpool FC won the Premier League was taken 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 terrible events of Hillsborough tragedy. In the game the FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forrest on April 15, 1989, hundreds of spectators outside the stadium burst into the stadium which resulted in Liverpudlian who was in the stands sandwiched stadium railing. This resulted in 94 Liverpudlian died at the scene, a Liverpudlian died four days later in hospital and a Liverpudlian others died after a coma for 4 years. As a result of the Hillsborough tragedy was the British government conducted a study back on the safety factor of football stadiums in the country. Known as the Taylor Report, states that the cause of the Hillsborough tragedy was a factor that exceeds the capacity stadium crowd because of lack of anticipation of the security forces. Eventually the British government passed legislation that requires each division I England to abolish the stands stood up. After becoming a living witness of the tragedy of Heysel and Hillsborough terrible, 'King' Kenny Dalglish never be separated from the trauma upon himself. Finally on February 22, 1990 he announced his resignation as manager of Liverpool FC. The announcement is very shocking the football world at the time, because Liverpool FC is competing with Arsenal in the Premier League title race. Reasons mentioned by Kenny Dalglish when it is no longer able to face pressure in menahkodai Liverpool FC. Over the past few weeks are handled by the Liverpool FC first team coach Ronnie Moran before 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 a player and manager.
The departure of 'King' Kenny Dalglish and 2 terrible tragedy (Heysel and Hillsborough) seem to provide trauma, punishment or curse deep for Liverpool Football Club. The arrival of Graeme Souness did not change the fortunes of Liverpool FC. Although Souness could give the FA Cup in 1992, but with the transfer policy is less good players and implementation strategies are a little confusing to make Liverpool's inconsistent season. Another thing that ties between 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 the exit from the League Cup and FA Cup. Coach Roy Evans was appointed as the next manager of Liverpool FC. Liverpool FC is at number eight league worst result for 29 years. Although winning the title champion 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, Liverpool was ranked fifth 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 the time this is not balanced enough determination and aggressiveness of the players, so the Liverpool during the Roy Evans is often called the 'Spice Boys'. In addition to the more mature players such as Robbie Fowler, Steve McManaman and Jamie Redknapp, during Roy Evans appeared coaching young talent called Michael Owen who scored 18 goals and became the PFA Young Player of the Year Award in 1998.
In season 1998/99 Liverpool FC draw the Frenchman Gerard Houllier in a partnership with Roy Evans as a 'joint manager'. But Roy Evans was not suitable in collaboration with Gerard Houllier, so resigned in November 1998. After becoming sole manager, Houllier overhauled the team by including players such as Sami Hyypia, Stephan Henchoz, Markus Babbel, Dietmar Hamann, Gary McAllister and Emile Heskey.
