Expensive defeat v Cowdenbeath in December '71. We lost Andy McFadden with a bad injury in the first minute and lost a goal straight away and didn't recover . Cammy Murray , Dave  Millar , Dan Stevenson, Gordon McQueen , Billy McDerment for us and Dave Cairns and Billy Mullen for Cowden !

hi Billy! It always amazes me how you can remember all the opponents from years gone by as well as our players!

How good was Gordon McQueen in his St Mirren days versus a fit Bobby Reid?

I never got to see Big G in a Saints strip but my recollection of Bobby pre-injury is that he was a better more skilful centre half than Gordon who I could only compare in a Scotland/Leeds/Man U capacity who was surrounded by better players.

I think had injury not ravaged Bobbys career that he would have become an all time great player for Scotland and we would have progressed in World Cups with him in the team!

Look at that Saints team. Many quality players. Just shows the talent available in Scotland then with us recently relegated.

Even Cowdenbeath with Ex Hibee Jim McArthur, Jim Taylor, the great buddie Johnny Dickson available. Red Lichtie, Dick Campbell also there for the Blue Brazil.

Also, over 3000 at Central Park was normal then. Changed days.

Seen big Gordon score two classic goals in the 72)73 Season, I think. Twice he ran the full length of the pitch, dribbling past many opposition players before crashing the ball beyond the goalkeepers . I think the ball once went through the back of the net .

Oh the memories.

Ok so how would you compare big G vs big B?

Based on their playing time at Love St?

That is the question I’m posing.

Both top class players . Each 10/10 regarding their time in Paisley.

Shame about Reid's injury. He would have made it to the very top down South like McQueen.

Is that not Tony Connell behind big McQueen?
