"Billy was a great club player, so brave and such a strong runner. He did not know what fear was. He could go down the line, cut inside and give the ball a fearsome crack. I used to get into a bit of trouble when I ran into Bill in front of the Kop at Anfield. But what did those fans want me to do, get out of his way?"
Joe Mercer - Everton and Arsenal 1932-1955
