Historic sports franchises

Though the Boston Celtics or UCLA Bruins or New York Yankees won't surprise anyone, there's a good handful of history here.


4. Liverpool FC

Achievement: 10 Division 1 Championships (1975-1990)

Liverpool would win a major title in nearly every year between 1975 and 1990. In addition to the 10 League Championships, the club also bought home 2 FA Cups, 1 UEFA Cup, 4 League Cups and 4 European Cups. Bob Paisley, Joe Fagan and Kenny Dalglish shared the managerial duties, with the latter pairing up with the great Ian Rush to become one of football’s most dynamic partnerships on the field. Other players immortalized during Liverpool’s run of greatness include Alan Hansen, Kevin Keegan, Graeme Souness and Bruce Grobelaar.

  • I hate the Yankees, but in America there's NO sports franchise that can compare historically. What other team had someone like Babe Ruth, who transcended baseball and became a national icon?
