The unwanted Man United record Liverpool are close to matching

first_imgLiverpool were so close to ending their long wait for a league crown last season.Having not won the title since 1990, the Reds were suddenly odds on to finish the 2013/14 campaign as winners, but it wasn’t to be and Man City proved themselves to be the best team in England.However, with the current 2014/15 season approaching the halfway point and Liverpool 18 points behind the leaders after just 12 games, the Reds are on the verge of matching the title drought endured by bitter rivals Man United.When Liverpool’s north west neighbours won the Premier League in 1993 it ended a 26-year wait to be crowned champions again, something they had achieved on seven occasions prior to their previous success in 1967.Liverpool’s previous longest title drought was 24 years, between 1923 and 1947 (and there was no league football between 1939 and 1946, due to war).Man United: 20 titles: 1908, 1911, 1952, 1956, 1957, 1965, 1967, 1993, 1994, 1996, 1997, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2003, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, 2013Liverpool: 18 titles: 1901, 1906, 1922, 1923, 1947, 1964, 1966, 1973, 1976, 1977, 1979, 1980, 1982, 1983, 1984, 1986, 1988, 1990So, it looks like Liverpool have one more season before they match Man United, not in the way they would like.25 years and counting… Will Liverpool wait for a title as long as Man United had to? 1center_img 1last_img read more
