Happy Birthday, Liverpool Football Club! 125 years and you don’t look a day over 60.
To mark this huge milestone, the club made this two-minute (or 125 seconds, if you prefer) video montage highlighting the club’s history. From blue and white shirts and Everton Athletic, to the first FA Cup Final, to life in the second division in the 50s, to Shankly and Paisley and European Cup glory, to Kenny and Rush and Barnes, to Heysel and Hillsborough, to Gerrard and Carra and Torres and Kuyt, and all the way to the Klopp Era, the video is a soft-focus tour through the glory ‘round the fields of Anfield Road.
These kind of once-in-a-generation milestones are a good way to reconnect with the foundations of the club we support, beyond the immediate concerns of transfer rumours and front office movement. It’s also a good time to reflect on why we’re fans of this club.
Happy Birthday, Reds. We were made for Liverpool and Liverpool was made for us.
