St Mirren fans are hungry for all three points against Aberdeen tomorrow ... after tucking into a midweek goals feast in the League Cup.
The Buddies banged five past hapless Ayr United at St Mirren Park as they booked their place in round three.
And the Paisley faithful have been using Buddie Banter to heap praise on their heroes for that five-star show ...with Paul McGowan being highlighted as a real standout performer.
William Livingstone, of Ralston, Paisley, e-mailed to say: “I really enjoyed the cup win against Ayr on Wednesday night.
“Let’s face it ... how many times are we able to enjoy watching St Mirren score five goals in one game?!?
“It was good to see five different players getting on the scoresheet but there’s no doubt that wee McGowan’s goal was the pick of the bunch.
“I reckon he will have a great season for the Buddies, and let’s hope he can inspire us to another win up at Pittodrie this weekend.”
Fans have also taken to Twitter to have their say on the cup win.
Paisley MSP George Adam (@GeorgeAdam) said: “St Mirren’s passing was more direct and just tore Ayr to pieces.
“Thought Gary Teale was brilliant. Some of his crosses were fantastic.”
Nev Smyth (@nevsmyth) added: “St Mirren 5 Ayr United 1. See ya’s at Hampden! Defo a cup-winning team!”
Meanwhile, the prospect of Argentine full-back Franco Miranda making a return to St Mirren has been welcomed by many members of the black and white army.
Miranda became a cult hero with Saints supporters during his stint with the club three years ago.
Scott Crawford, of Dykebar, Paisley, e-mailed to say: “I was a big fan of Franco first time round, and was disappointed when we couldn’t agree a deal to keep him after his loan deal expired.
“I always felt that we didn’t get the best out of him under our old boss Gus MacPherson because the system he played was quite negative but, with Danny Lennon now favouring expansive football, it may just allow Franco to shine.
“He was never the most solid of full-backs, but he did add something going forward.
“With Jim Goodwin patrolling in front of the back four, Franco could be given the licence to bomb on, knowing the skipper will be there to drop in and provide some insurance at the back.
“I know Danny will want to see Franco in action before he sanctions a signing but, on paper, it looks like a sensible move.”
However, on Twitter, fans are split on whether Lennon should be looking at a player who has notched up just a few dozen games since leaving Paisley in 2009.
Daniel Morrow (@danielmorrow_) is definitely in the ‘yes’ camp.
He said: “Franco Miranda is my favourite St Mirren player ever. If he returns, I’m getting a shirt with his name on the back!”
However, Paul Stewart (@PaulStewart49) would prefer to see Saints lure another former player - Jure Travner - back to Paisley.
He Tweeted: w“I have to say I’m a little disappointed it’s not Jure.
“39 games in three years? Hmmm ... I hope he proves me wrong.”
