Saint Mirren top 11 legends. .

68 posts in this topic

I know that we have had a few "worst ever" Saints players threads in close seasons gone by, but who would you now have in your best Saints 11 of all time ?

I have thought about this recently over the years and generally I always come up with one of Fergies selections but now , I reckon I would add Teale and Thompson to my side . .We also now have plenty of our support who became firm fans in more recent times and never saw  Fergies teams , what are their selections. .

Good topic. 

I'm only going to go with players I actually saw and remember playing games for us. Rather than guys who are undoubtedly legends and others I'm too young to remember watching. 

So for that I'm going to be going from about 1993 onwards. 

Gk - Campbell Money

RB - Paul Dummett

LB - Ian Ross

CB - Norrie McWhirter

CB - Kirk Broadfoot 

LM - Lewis Morgan

RM - Gary Teale

CM - Andy Dorman

CM - Charlie Adam

ST - Steven Thompson

ST - Barry Lavety

 

Subs, John McGinn, Kenny McLean, Isma Goncalves, Iain  Nicolson , Mark Yardley, Barry McLaughlin, Ludo Roy

Not about brilliant football players 

My St Mirren legends as in title. 

Better left backs were Munro and Baker but Mowat was my favourite.

Too difficult to name an 11, so I'll name a few in each position, which might help me decide. My memory spans back til about 83 I think. 

Goalkeepers? Campbell Money, Ludovic Roy, Billy Thomson

Full backs? Tommy Wilson, Derek Hamilton, Tom Black, Jack Ross

Centre Backs? Peter Godfrey, Barry McLaughlin, Norrie McWhirter, Scott Walker

Central midfielders? Tony Fitzpatrick, Billy Abercrombie, Jim Goodwin, Ricky Gillies, Andy Dorman, Stephen McGinn, John McGinn

Wide Midfielders? Ian Scanlon, Junior Mendes, Gary Teale, Kenny McLean

Strikers? Torfason, McAvennie, McDougall, McGarvey, Thompson, Goncalves, Lavety, Yardley

 

Some shoehorned in, some perhaps not the favourite of some, but all players who I have admired. I may try and narrow it down to an 11, but I'll not be happy...

It's not about the best. 

It's my St Mirren Legend no matter their ability 

Gus would be my second choice.

Still waiting on.Ferguson bringing his WORLD FAMOUS MONEYSPINNING MANCHESTER FECKING UNITED to St Mirren Park for a friendly to help our his old Team 

Could have done with some help , especially during the 1990's. 

Played many Matches against other Scottish Clubs over the decades. 

The Saints fans idolised him.
