Billy Liddell runs out of tunnel with the club mascot and also Roy Saunders and Doug Rudham in background during the1950s. Ask any Liverpool fan who the greatest player of all time was, and those with any sense of history will say, Billy Liddell. So loved and respected was he the club was known as ‘Liddellpool’ during the 1950s.

His extraordinary standing is made all the more powerful in that he won just the 1946-47 League title and an FA Cup runner’s up medal in 1950. A true gentleman who was never booked, he studied accountancy and rarely had time to train, and yet he was a goal scorer of legendary ability. He notched up 492 appearances and 215 goals and a further 26 wartime games and 18 goals.
