It is a game which many believe has been forgotten.
But for anyone who has been following the history of the League of Ireland, its success is worth remembering.
In 1920, there was only one team in the League, the Dubliners.
But with their brilliant coach, George Dolan, they became one of the most successful sides in the world, and were even crowned champions of the European Football League.
Then came the League’s first trophy in 1929, when they were runner-up to Liverpool in the final.
The following year they were crowned champions, the first time an Irish team had done so.
In 1935, the team was taken over by Liverpool.
In 1936 they were promoted to the top flight and won the league, the Cup and the FAI Cup.
After that, things went a little bit haywire.
In 1937, a year after they won the title, they lost the European Cup to Arsenal.
In 1938, the following year, they won again but fell to Arsenal in the semi-finals of the Champions League.
By 1939, there were two more titles to fall before the title could be reclaimed.
In 1939, they had beaten Barcelona and Bayern Munich to reach the final of the FAIR Cup.
In the FA Cup, they were beaten in the third round by Juventus.
By 1940, they missed out on a place in the Champions Cup final by the first team to defeat them.
In 1940, Liverpool had won the League.
But it was not enough to secure them a place at the European Championships in the following season.
The following year in the World Cup, their first European appearance since 1926, they failed to score a goal in a 3-1 defeat by Germany.
And then, in 1946, Liverpool won the FAF Cup.
That was the last time Liverpool had qualified for the European Cups.
The team were given an extra year of training, and their first manager, Brian Mullen, was given a five-year contract.
After two years of turmoil, Mullen left to take up the managerial job with the Northampton Saints.
But by then, Liverpool were in their fifth season in the top division and had been playing consistently for two decades.
They had won two European Cups and reached the semi finals in every season since 1926.
The League is so successful, and so successful in so many ways, that when it comes to its success in the transfer market, it is easy to forget that it has also had a few problems.
And while it might seem odd for a club to go for so many transfers, there are some cases in which it seems to be the best strategy for a team.
When Liverpool bought the right player in the right time, it was always a chance for the manager to add to his squad and to bring in other players to the club.
It is something we have seen before with Real Madrid, Barcelona, Ajax and Bayern.
And with this, the story of the club is one of its greatest success stories.
It took almost 70 years for the club to achieve the status of a European team.
But now, as the FA continues to improve the game, the league has become the perfect test of whether a club can compete at the highest level, whether it can attract top players and bring in new ones to the side.
As the last few years have shown, it has done just that.
