Liverpool – You’ll Never Walk Alone

Introduction

Liverpool F.C. was founded following a dispute between the Everton committee and John Houlding, club president and owner of the land at Anfield. After eight years at the stadium, Everton relocated to Goodison Park in 1892 and Houlding founded Liverpool F.C. to play at Anfield.[7] Originally named “Everton F.C. and Athletic Grounds Ltd” (Everton Athletic for short), the club became Liverpool F.C. in March 1892 and gained official recognition three months later, after The Football Association refused to recognize the club as Everton.

Anfield is famous for its atmosphere with the Spion Kop stand behind one of the goals often being the catalyst for the impressive wall of noise that greets the teams as they come out on the field.

The stadium is replete with memories and is a veritable museum to the club’s long and distinguished history. One such example is the ‘This is Anfield’ sign that hangs about the stairs that leads the players out on to the pitch from the dressing rooms. Installed by legendary manager Bill Shankly in the 1960s to bring good luck to his players before each and game and to intimidate the opposition, it was tradition for the Liverpool team to reach up and touch the sign as they headed for the pitch.
