1950 FA Cup Final Team

(1/10) > >>

Redsnappa:
A mate of mine bought me a copy of 'Picture Post' from April 1950 at a recent auction.

I thought I'd scan the pics of the Liverpool team for those of us under the age of 70 who've never seen them.... :P

So here we go:

Two pics of Cyril Sidlow (including the cover pic):





Phil Taylor (Captain)



Laurie Hughes



Eddie Spicer and Ray Lambert



Bob Paisley (who sadly didn't get picked for the Final)



Bill Jones (on the right, not as it says in the caption, on the left)



Kevin Baron



Albert Stubbins



Billy Liddell



Jimmy Payne and Willie Fagan



We lost 2 nil to the Arsenal that year on our first ever visit to Wembley, but we didn't have too bad a record from 1965 on...

Dan86:
The first two photos are superb. Cyril Sidlow a fraction of a second from getting clattered in both.

TheLeftSide:
Wow!

I've only seen two of those before. The corner of the KOP and main stand (where the boys pen was in the sixties) on the Bill Jones picture is breathtaking  (rising up through the mist).

Thanks for posting that.

That raises a point Lefty...

We're at home and Bill Jones (if the caption has it right) is wearing white....so why are we in our Away kit in a Home game?

 ???

EDIT: I think the caption's wrong. The player on the right looks like Laurie Hughes to me, so we ARE in Red and that's not Bill Jones at all, unless he was playing for someone else (Charlton?) at the time....

Ron:
Thanks for posting those pictures !
It's really hard to find some good pictures from our black and white past.
