King Billy quote

"Billy Liddell has dominated the post-war stage of the Liverpool Football Club. At times he has seemed to be Liverpool. Already he is becoming more than a name - he's on his way to being a legend. A legend of electrifying runs, full-blooded shooting plus superlative sportsmanship. In all the years I've watched, I've never seen him intentionally foul an opponent, pettishly kick the ball away or do anything that was even the slightest questionable. He was the complete footballer, but he was something more; he is a man of great integrity who has endeared himself to us all. If I were as good a sportsman as Billy Liddell, I'd be proud. You're a better man than I am - Billy Liddell!"

John Moores, chairman of Everton FC, on 21st of September 1960 on the eve of Liddell's testimonial
