Liddell brings Liverpool closer to Wembley

Liddell knocked out Blackpool in the 6th round of the FA Cup on Liverpool's way to Wembley in 1950. Willie Fagan took the lead for Liverpool in the 19th minute, but Blackpool equalized four minutes later. As you can see on the cartoon, Phylllis had just given birth to twins David and Malcolm and they cheered on their dad Billy to score Liverpool's winner in the 81st minute.

Liverpool went on to beat Everton 2-0 in the semi-final, but sadly lost to Arsenal in the final, 0-2, where many complained Billy was literally kicked out of the game by the Arsenal players.

King Billy quote

"After he retired he live in Cheyne Gardens in Aigburth, round the corner from our house. Never left this town and gave me dad who's 74 now many happy years back then just chatting when getting the sunday papers. True gent and without doubt the greatest player for us. I remember being about ten (1978) and me dad asking Billy to talk to me outside gracies newsagents and we stood for a good ten minutes while he talked crap with a little snotty kid. I really wish the youngsters could have seen him play or talk to blokes like me dad and understand just how great he was and stuck through the club through thick and thin.
Gent and a top bloke."
