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

Top five goals would be Brann Bergen, the first leg in Norway, the UEFA Cup Final against Alaves for what it meant. The overhead kick at Charlton for what that meant, the diving header against Aston Villa in the FA Cup semi-final. I could go on all day here so I’ll pick seven! The free-kick against Man U at Anfield, the one against Schmeichel in Cantona’s comeback at Old Trafford. A goal against Leeds at Elland Road, not the best goal as it was a tap in but it was my first goal for Liverpool at Elland Road. I loved scoring against Everton too!
