About Liverpool - Football Memorabilia
Liverpool Football Club was formed in March 1892, following a dispute between the committee of the Everton FC and Athletic Grounds Ltd. and the owner of the land at Anfield, John Houlding. The Everton committee took their club across Stanley Park to Goodison Park, whilst the newly formed Liverpool FC became members of the Football League three months later.
Liverpool FC has a long and illustrious history. The club colours were originally a light blue and white halved shirt, with blue shorts and socks, but changed in 1894 to red shirts, white shorts and red and white socks. In 1959, Bill Shankly became manager of Liverpool FC. Shankly, famous for his 'boot room' style of management, decided in 1964 to change the main playing kit to all red, believing that red signalled to the opposing side that Liverpool were not only a powerful side, but they were dangerous too. Liverpool FC away and third kits feature different colour schemes and styles, and are changed almost every season.
Liverpool FC has a global following, and the club is marketed accordingly. Memorabilia from past seasons are highly collectable, including scrapbooks of newspaper cuttings and 'retro' shirts. Signed shirts and match balls are also eagerly sought after. The famous 'This is Anfield' poster, replicating the imposing stairwell original which is always touched by Liverpool players en route to the pitch, is one of the club's bestselling items. Liverpool FC branded merchandise range from playing kits to dog water bowls, key fobs, polo shirts, baby wear and many other items, and make superb gifts for the devoted Liverpool fans worldwide.
