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. 

Probably to do with the way he left, he still holds us very dear....

We could beat Joses lot

No he didn't. 

He took his Team all over Scotland. 

Clyde, Dumbarton, Livingston and many many more. 

He did not give one feck about St Mirren and the St Mirren fans who idolised him

He has no problem with St Mirren fans. Not in my experience anyway.

Going 4-4-2 with my favourites.....

Thompson
Clarke
Copeland
Reid
Munro
Stark
Aber
Fitz
Weir
Somner
McGarvey

I look at this team and I think .... brilliant!  Then I think about the players from when I first watched the Buds.  Were Jimmy Brown and Campbell Forsyth as good as or better than Billy Thompson, Was Willie Fulton as good as I remember at sweeper.  What about a winger, Jimmy Robertson whose transfer fees were worth over £2M in todays money or Bobby McKean who could be untouchable on his day. Then the greats that played as inside forwards, Tommy Bryceland who would have had a bundle of Scottish caps if he hadn't the misfortune to be around when John White (the greatest Scot I've seen play) was strutting his stuff, Tommy Gemmell and Ally McLeod both sublime left footed maestros. Mind you I think Doug Somner is the best centre forward I've seen for the Saints just shading Gerry Baker. I often wonder if we could have afforded him if he was a full time player.  We've been fortunate to see some rare players over the years in the black and white (as long as we draw a veil over the mid 60's and the early 70's).

All great points and well worthy of debate. I loved Billy Thompson. In hindsight he was probably a lot better in my 10 yr old mind than he ever was in reality. Didn't get to see most of the guys you mentioned. Seen everybody I put in my team. Loved big Dougie.

If you draw a veil over the early 70s then you ignore Ally McLeod's four goals at Ibrox , the stuff legends are made of , as only he and Alan Gilzean ever achieved it !

I was thinking more about 73/74 which was our worst ever season in Scottish football when we finished 29th in the combined league.  We took a few hammerings that season from teams that are still in the bottom league today.

Favourites are strikers McGarvey, Sumner and Torforson.  Wingers Scanlon could be a genius. Midfielders have to include Tony F, Abba and Lambert.  Half backs include Jackie Copland and Norrie McWhirter. Full backs include Becket and Young. Goalkeepers include Thomson.

Now i`m looking at the post thinking , am i missing the jokes or puns in it or has your autocorrect just had some sort of digital aneurysm ?

I can remember a game at love st, not long after he left us,  we scored a late goal to equalise 2-2 I think, I was at the back of the stand, where a large group of St Mirren fans were jeering Fergie as he left the ground alone in tears, most were thinking the late goal must have really hurt him, and found it quite amusing, I found it very sad that they could jeer the great man, a short while later Toshie told us Fergie had just been informed his dad had died,  :(  am not so sure we endeared ourselves as fans that night,  does anyone one else remember that night

Even Big Gus McLeod was a Legend to me as 10/11 year old.

I was a Ballboy when he scored 5 against the Accies.:clapping

A bit surprised that none of my fellow old-timers have considered John (Cowboy) McCormack for the legends list. He was a big favourite of mine, a fantastic tackler.
