Yeah, somebody should carry out a project on the thinness of the stripe against performance. With that said it was a pin stripe for the Scottish Cup victory.

 

The truth is out there…

There is clearly an optimum stripe thickness for success, pin stripe perhaps being a negligible varaiable but too many thin stripes being an issue for players maybe lije the old checked suits on newsreaders effect on tv in the past?

Classic ‘optimum stripe thickness’. I like your style

It was a real statement and hasn’t lost any of its power through time.  I had the away kit, or red bib.

I had the away strip also.  I loved the away from that year and relatives have commented that in most family photographs of that period, I have my home and away St. Mirren full strips on.

It was a horrible kit and looking back I believe it was responsible for decline from 1987, see also the barcode strip which had a similar effect 🤔

I understand that it they weren't really "traditional St. Mirren kits" but from my perspective, they were my first St. Mirren kits and I have great memories of wearing them, being taken to the matches on a more regular basis and watching guys like Peter Godfrey, Gary Peebles, Neil Cooper, Campbell Money, Brian Hamilton and others.  Did Billy Davies wear the "bib" kits, I can't quite remember?

Peter Godfrey = Basil Fawlty. Played in the same Meadowbank team as Sir Tom Hendrie

Huddersfield also were subjected to that strip at same time if I remember right.

Remember Kenny McDowall's "tackle"? The studs straight to the coupon special.

Was that Mechelen or Tromso?  Mind you, could have been both.

Mechelen. To be fair they ended up winning the cup that year, at least we didn't lose to a crap team

 

Yeah, no disgrace. Mind you we went into free fall at that point.  I was a season ticket holder throughout the 90’s.  Some real torture until Sir Tom arrived.

Sir Tom was a gift from God after the majority of the 1990's. Major suffering via Hay, Smith, Bone, etc.

TOM HENDRIE AND THE MILLENNIUM SEASON.

:notworthy

Fitzpatrick too although all through that decade there were some real gems. John Hewitt’s goal against Falkirk after 1,000 passes!

Alex Bone, aaarrrgggghhhhhh

Tony was part of my etc .

Hewitt's free kick v Killie , a gem.

I liked Wee Alex Bone. He gave 100% every game . Scored plenty with most other teams , unlucky with us.

David Elliott, oh dear, a disaster.

Elliott started off well. Alex Bone tried, yes, but just not good enough.

The Polis looked at taking action on that tackle after Bill McMurdos son put in a complaint against the Mad Monk 🚓
