"Billy the king"

Oh lets drink, a drink, a drink
To Billy the king, the king, the king,
The creator of the greatest team,
For he invented professional football,
And this year we'll win the league.

Now Gerry Byrne,
Refused a tourniquet,
When he's broken his collarbone,
And they just rubbed on medicinal compound,
And Gerry goes marching on, on, ON!

Oh lets drink, a drink, a drink
To Billy the king, the king, the king,
The creator of the greatest team,
For he invented professional football,
And this year we'll win the league.

----------------------

To the tune of That's Amore

When he runs down the wing
You can hear the Kop sing
Billy Liddell!
When he runs through to score
You can hear the Kop roar
Billy Liddell
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
Bil-ly Lid-dell

Poem by Wooltonian

When your maker calls your name,
He will not ask if you won or lost,
But how you played the game.
and believe me when I say
"Boy, did Billy play the game"

King Billy quote

"Reference to Alan Hansen's assertion (May 15) that Kenny Dalglish was the best player ever to pull on a Liverpool shirt, and that Steven Gerrard could supersede him. His comments, obviously, apply only to the modern era. I have regularly watched football at Anfield and Goodison Park since 1938 and, in my opinion, the greatest Liverpool player was the incomparable Billy Liddell, who played in the old leather boots and with the heavy leather ball. Liddell was a wonderful sporting player, extremely fast, fearless, with a rocket shot in both feet and a terrific header of the ball. A truly great 'one club' player - and I was privileged to have watched him throughout his career."

A letter from Ray Terry to the sports editor of The Telegraph in May 2006
