Dave MacKay, pretty much on his own as the biggest c*** ever to turn out for STFC - and there have been a few!  

He also replaced the Don with a player who never turned out in British league football again after his spell here, Tommy Jenkins.

 Jimmy Quinn is a curio, he was 40 when he turned out in his 3rd spell at the CG

To qualify for the Best Xi I would think they have to look like they are in the wrong division - so despite their age we are left wondering how lucky we have been.  The worst XI the opposite, so a player like Fenwick, as ineffectual as he was, didn't drop down to play for us!

Paul Allen is a good call Reg, he was a class above and came with energy.  He looked like he should still have been playing higher, same for Culverhouse.  Hoddle and Hazard, both being good enough to leap back up the league in terms of clubs they next played for!

Nallis would certainly be in the other team, although, most frustrating, was seeing that he had clearly been a good footballer, it's just that he sort of got footballing dementia-arthritis if that could be a proper thing.

Was Kenny Allen any good?  I remember him, just, but only because he looked like a School Caretaker had been given a go on the pitch.  I honestly cannot recall whether he was any good in goal or not.

Good shout.

If you just wanted an old keeper who'd played a lot at a low level, then Alex Ferguson who played 7 games post war, aged 44 would be yer man.

David Lucas would kind of fit that bill.

Steve McMahon was a handy player for us. Still a cunt, though.

An interesting criterion flip... so to be in the best XI, they have to have dropped down yet still play like they're in the higher Div. Makes it a bit tough....  someone like Brian Borrows, looked like he belonged a rung below his previous, despite still being useful. Whereas yes, a Walters looked like he could still do something higher up.

I think you'll struggle to get XI who dropped down, after years but looked like they could move back up.  Think if they've dropped down and you get some good service out them then that's more realistic.  There's usually good reasons why they've dropped down

Brian Marwood. Not many appearances but didn't let the side down.

Darren Ward could make the both the best & worst over the hill squads based on his time with us.

Gary Elkins, a contender for worst 11 regardless of age.

 In the bad XI, then Ken Keyworth gets a mention. Poor old Ken had been a useful player for Leicester appearing in the cup finals of 61 and 63, scoring in 63, and was in their 64 LC winning side. But to prove the rule that there is a reason why they drop down, he was carrying an injury, that did for him. Always a shame when that happens.

He was only on loan, but Andy Gray was awful, couldn't make it out of the centre circle.  Might be saved from entry by playing a win over Oxford though.
