A SCOT'S DEBUT AT ANFIELD
Liddle Pleases On The Wing
"There were fewer than 300 people at Anfield for the "friendly" against Preston. Nivvy had a damaged ankle and this allowed Liddle, an 18-year-old Scot, to make his debut for the first team at outside right."
So begins the match report for Billy LIDDELL's, (the press misspelling his name as Liddle in this report) first ever game for Liverpool' first team.
This is how Liverpool lined up for Liddell's monumental game: Riley, Cooper, Ramsden, Busby, Bush, S. Eastham, Liddell, Taylor, Done, Fagan, Van den Berg.
Press reporter "Contact" concludes that "Liddle showed great promise and was never beaten in this game, which deserved a 30,000 gate for the excellence of the football shown." He also mentions in closing that "Liddle was making the Preston defence go all out."

Top five goals would be Brann Bergen, the first leg in Norway, the UEFA Cup Final against Alaves for what it meant. The overhead kick at Charlton for what that meant, the diving header against Aston Villa in the FA Cup semi-final. I could go on all day here so I’ll pick seven! The free-kick against Man U at Anfield, the one against Schmeichel in Cantona’s comeback at Old Trafford. A goal against Leeds at Elland Road, not the best goal as it was a tap in but it was my first goal for Liverpool at Elland Road. I loved scoring against Everton too!
