Liddell scoring the famous cup equalizer against Manchester City which was disallowed, as the final whistle had already been blown. As a result City knocked out Liverpool of the 5th round of the FA Cup at Anfield 1-2 in 1956. You can see the referee raising his arm as he signals for full-time as the ball is on its way to the City net.

King Billy quote

"The match-winner who became king. Behind a paper-strewn desk high in Student's Union building, two famous feet twitched. Feet that belonged to the original, uncrowned king of football lore - Billy Liddell. Feet of power and romance that longed for the old days as their owner reflected on past affairs of plunder. Now he spends his days signing the accounts, checking figures and helping run the financial side of the Guild of Undergraduates.

It is said that when Liddell called at the Anfield ground one day last year, five years after the close of his career - work stopped on the new stand that was being built. 'There's Billy Liddell', a navvy gasped. To a man they removed their industrial helmets, clutched them reverently to their waists and bowed their heads. The old master was passing through."

From Sunday Express on 30th November 1966
