King Billy quote

"My memory isn't as sharp as it was, but I can still remember the excitement of running out in front of a full house. The grounds were different then. Nearly everyone stood up, not nearly so much cover so the crowds looked even bigger than they were. And they were lot bigger than they are now. We used to play in front of 60,000 at Anfield, and I think the first time I played in a Goodison derby there were more than 78,000 packed in. I played in the first derby after the war, and what an occasion that was! Interest in football then was fantastic - you couldn't get a ticket for love nor money."

Billy remembers the how football was in the good ol' days, where the Merseyside derby was incomparable
