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

"My old man is a blue nose and he used to alternate between watching Everton one week and Liverpool the next, just to watch Liddell play. As someone who has seen him play many times and has also seen all our greats over the last 50 years he tells me without doubt Liddell is the best player he has ever seen in a red shirt."
