I thought Stark moved to Aberdeen pre Bosman days so I don't think there would have been a tribunal. My thoughts at the time was Alex Miller hated the fact that Saints had a lot of players who earned more playing for Saints than he did when he played for Rangers. He also had a remit to reduce the wage bill. Hence Thompson, Fulton, McDogall and McCormack all left the club rather cheaply. 

It was Ricky McFarlane who sold Stark.

Billy Thomson was a reasonable sale as we had Campbell Money.

Miller didn’t rate Fulton and got rid of him from Easter Road as well.

I think most fans at the time would have taken £100k for McDougall. He had never fulfilled his promise since arriving.

Billy Stark was a straight forward transfer to Aberdeen the fee was around £80k we certainly lost money on McDougall as he was signed from Clydebank at the time for £175k which was a Scottish transfer record between Scottish Clubs.He of course was sold to Aberdeen for £100k.

One question, what kind of midfielder was Tony Fitzpatrick?

A bloody damn good one...

 

His career was nearing an end when i was in my mid-teens so i may not be fully accurate, but he played

in the centre, probably a bit defensive but a good passer of the ball and would be the link between the

defence and the playmakers, he never scored many goals but was a really good solid central midfielder..

 

I'll wait on someone correct me now.....:)

The measure of the team back then. Is that I found it impossible to have a favourite player. Fitzy, Lexy, Stark, Iain Munro, McGarvey, Torrance. All heroes to name but a few. 
ETA how could I possibly have left Dougie Somner out of that list. I suppose that just goes to prove my point.

Paul Kinnaird - Does anyone remember him playing for St.Mirren?

Mind getting gubbed at Easter Road. Kinnaird got subbed. As we walked back to car after game PK was coming out of bookies. Had went there rather than watching rest of game. Cue some very unhappy Saints fans. Davie Hay wasn’t very impressed either if I remember.
