LFChistory.net launched billyliddell.com on 10th of January 2009, when Billy would have celebrated his 87th birthday. LFChistory.net has been in good contact with Rena Liddell, Billy's only sister, since February 2008 and received priceless photos and press cuttings from Billy's life and times. Along with a collection of quotes and articles we hope this website will do King Billy justice.
Billy's autobiography - "My Soccer Story" (1960) and the following people have been invaluable in helping us put together this website:

"Aside from being a magnificent player, one of the great things about him was he was a giant of a man too. Though he always made you queue for his autograph, he always stayed to sign every single one. Everyone respected him. He would tell us that if there was any pushing and shoving he wouldn't sign any and we all lined up in an orderly fashion. Then, and it didn't matter how long it took, he would sign every single one with a proper signature, not just some quick scribble.
He was a great figurehead for Liverpool Football Club in an era when you didn't really have stars as such, but he was a very moderate and humble man. I was lucky enough to meet and get to know Billy quite well in later years. He was the exception to the rule that says you should never meet your heroes and was a truly great man."
Roy Evans - Liverpool 1964-1998
