King Billy quote

"His typical move was on the left wing, where he would make for the bye-line before slinging in a fast cross at just the right height. The all-standing Kop would topple forward when he made for the flagpole and you could hear the shout for a "corner" all over the city. His corners were also superb as were his free kicks. He would also cut in from the left and let fly with thunderous shots from either foot.

Sometimes he would switch to the right wing and had an extended period there. But one of his most successful spells was when he was converted to centre forward. He held the line, passed and brought in the wingers, was direct down the middle and could also head the ball. He ran (and walked) with a rolling gait - like a sailor. He could not be knocked off the ball and was rarely injured.

Billy Liddell, we salute you. You were a true legend. You were my first footballing hero. Arguably you were the best of all because you were ours alone. A true Local Hero."

Seamus on the great Billy Liddell
