Forget trophies or championships or glamour or fanbase or whatever, it's a team like this [in all sports] that should be the most respected.

The club was name-checked in a celebrated British advert for milk, from the 1980s. The scene was two boys with thick Scouse accents in Liverpool F.C. football shirts in a kitchen, looking for something to drink after a game of football. The dialogue ran as follows:

Boy 1 enters shot, puts ball on top of fridge, and opens it

Boy 2: "Got any lemonade?"
Boy 1: "If you want!" (he takes a bottle of milk from the fridge)
Boy 2: "Milk.....Ugh!"
Boy 1: "It's what Ian Rush drinks."
Boy 2: "Ian Rush?"
Boy 1: "Yeah, an' he says if I didn't drink lots of milk, when I grow up I'll only be good enough to play for Accrington Stanley!"
Boy 2: "Accrington Stanley? ... Who are they??!"
Boy 1: "Exactly!"
Boy 2 tries to get to Boy 1's milk.

Boy 1: "Nah, gerroff!"
Boy 2: "Gimmie some!"
