1973/74

What a superb Strip.

Black and White in all the right places.

Not the greatest Team we ever had but a few standouts there and a few not so good.

Bobby McKean was always a hero in a St Mirren Kit.

Davie Miller we could do with now.

And the legendary Tony Fitzpatrick.

Big Gus scored 5 v Hamilton previously.

Ex Hibee and Ex Scotland Goalie , Herriot was not very good at all.

Finished that Season in our worst ever position.

Fergie was to arrive soon. :)

Look at some of the cracking players in this Squad.

Includes one of my early heroes, the fantastic Goalie, Danny Stevenson. :clapping

Danny was also not a bad volleyball player, my ex PE teacher in Renfrew HS.

But if you're looking for a team. This is it1981-82.thumb.jpg.6e4823b6d4a70b326205b1

A choice of two decent keepers.
Young and Beckett at full back.
Copland Reid Dunlop Fulton and McCormack all capable in the central defence slots.

Midfield......... Spoilt for choice.
Fitzy Aber Lexy Stark Scanlon Speirs

Up front a combination we can only dream of today.
Somner McDougall McAvennie with Supersub for the 2nd half!

Billy Johnston.....What a player, an All Time Favourite for me. Classy and always seemed to have time on the Ball.

I used to like him a lot as well until he became head of HR at Babcock. He soon earned his nickname as Billy Lier when he was dealing with the union on stuff. I had to deal with him once personally myself on an injury that I received at work and his manners and conduct toward me was a disgrace. Needless to say it wasn't only Morton fans that used to boo him at meetings :lol:  Oh and I won my injury claim :cheers

That was an incredible squad of players, in a different time and different place. As I said before, they would wipe the floor with the current Premiership and would win it with the ease that Sellick are currently winning,
