Billy Liddell is one of the greatest players - some say the greatest - in the entire history of Liverpool FC. A Scotland winger, he was recommended to the club by Matt Busby and made his League debut in the triumphant 1946-7 season. Liddell's talents were most striking during Liverpool's widerness years in the second division. From 1954 to 1962, Liddell carried the club: he was invariably Liverpool's top scorer each season and played in every department of the team except in goal. Such were his contributions that the club was dubbed 'Liddellpool'. 'Billy Liddell' is a nostalgic look at the story of this icon of the Kop. It contains recollections from players, the public and Billy's family as well as fascinating observations from the author. Also included is a comprehensive statistics chapter, with full team line-ups of every Scotland international in which Billy appeared and all his appearances for Great Britain. Foreword by Roger Hunt.
