King Billy quote

"I saw Billy Liddell play at Anfield with Stanley Matthews on the other side. Both produced breathtaking performances; both teased the other's defence and both delivered constantly inch-perfect corners. One moment of Liddell's magic came when he was standing outside his opponents' penalty area. A lazy ball bounced towards him and from a standing position, he headed the ball. It went like a rocket, hit the crossbar with the goalkeeper well beaten and rebounded (first bounce) outside the area. If you ally this to his shooting power and speed, his determination and sporting conduct, it is ill advised to say a modern player is better without qualification."

A letter from Newby Jones in The Telegraph
