Recommended Posts

Lets see how much St Mirren trivia we can come up with

Updating the OP as we go along...

 

Only team to sack Sir Alex Ferguson

3 ex players currently in the English Premier League - Aaron Mooy, John McGinn and Kenny McLean

Paul Lambert, ex buddie, Champions League winner

1 of only 7 teams to have played in the top division in Scotland for 100+ years (Rangers, Celtic, Aberdeen, Hearts, Hibs, Motherwell and St Mirren)

Last team to win Scottish cup with all Scottish players (unlikely to happen again!)

Only team in Scotland to field a player called Eric Djemba Djemba, so good they named him twice.

Last team to score a goal into the old (square) wooden goal posts at Hampden.(87 Cup Final)

First Scottish club to win a trophy in Europe. Barcelona Cup - 1922

First substitute in Scottish football. Archie Gemmill for Jim Clunie. Link

Only Scottish Team to win the Anglo Scottish Cup

St Mirren are the last team to play in front of an attendance of over 100,000 in a domestic football match in the UK, that didn’t involve either half of the Old Firm. 1959 Scottish Cup Final, St Mirren v Aberdeen Link

The only Senior Club with an affiliated Junior team that won the Scottish Junior Cup (1916-17)

St. Mirren were the first football team in the world to wear black and white vertical stripes, 1884. That's 6 years before Notts County, 10 years before Newcastle and 22 years before Juventus.

Ricky is the all time greatest St Mirren supporting bullshitter. 

Zzzzweep07 obviously sweeps the board as the biggest ever bore in the world of St Mirren. 

And probably anywhere he goes. 

And if St Mirren was a Village, the Houston Halfwit, Shooglie Douglie is the fecking idiot.

A few obvious ones to start;

 

Only team to sack Sir Alex Ferguson

2 ex players currently in the English Premier League - John McGinn and Kenny McLean

Paul Lambert, ex buddie, Champions League winner

1 of only 7 teams to have played in the top division in Scotland for 100+ years

Aaron Mooy and Paul Dummett too although Dummett may be a bit spurious as he was only on loan!!

Forgot Mooy had moved to Brighton recently! Not sure we can count Dummett... although he definitely contributed while he was in Paisley B)

Why do you feel the need to ruin every thread with absolute drivel? :(

The thread is St Mirren trivia, not forum user trivia. Stay on topic 

Not every thread. 

Previously postit once on this Topic and it isn't ruined. 

Your post to me is off topic as is this one also now. 

Drama queen.
