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

I always knew I was in for a hectic afternoon when I was marking Billy. The only way to try to hold him was to beat him to possession of the ball. Once he had it, he was difficult to stop.
