Liverpool's most recent, fifth, Champions League title came in the 2005 competition.
Liverpool won their fourth European Cup in 1984. Liverpool have won the European Cup 5 times (the 5th in its present format as Champions League).
came back from 3-0 down to 3-3 and then won it on penalties
I think you are on about the Champions League final in Istanbul in 2005..... The match was the best Champions League final game ever it was AC Milan V Liverpool FC and AC Milan took a 3-0 lead at half-time but in the second half Liverpool scored 3 goals to draw the game and take it to pens were Liverpool won and took the European cup home to Anfield for the 5th time.
in 2005 Liverpool won but finished 5th in the EPL. They were allowed in at the first qualifying round with the 4th place team in at the 2nd qualifying rouns (Everton). So why not this year also?
None of the current Liverpool first team has a birthday in February.
Liverpool are the most underated side in England - people need to acknowledge the power that they possess and Rafa Benitz 5 year plan - this year is the 5th year and we will be crowned champions - We have also won the most trophies of any premiership team since the turn of the millennium - Overated I think not!!!
2004-05 they were 5th. 2004-05 they were 5th.
Im trying to find this out myself to settle a debate, under my belief you don't as this no longer applies anymore after Liverpool finish 5th but won it. they actually never worked out this could happen they allowed Liverpool the chance to qualify but changed the ruling the season after.
they had finished fourth in the 2004-05 season......and that is the same season when Liverpool finished 5th in the premier league but on the other hand the Champions league was also won by Liverpool ......so after the finals it was decided that the champions league holder has to play in the champions league on a mandatory basis and thus liver pool were part of the 2005-2006 champions league..... Everton on the other hand after finishing fourth had a chance to play in the champions league, but at that time of the decade the rule said that the teams finishing third and fourth in the league has to go through a qualifying round, and thus Everton did not beat the team which was pitted against it and thus did not play in the champions league.......
Liverpool went into great unemployment, and went from one of the richest cities in the world to about 5th richest in England.
