      Happy Birthday "Saint". Only saw him a few times as Anfield but he was in the side that started the era of dominance here and in Europe.
      Always love to here him tell the stories of his time in the 60's I had a friend who played for Rangers and Newcastle at that time and it was a golden era to be a footballer not because of money but just to play football.

      The Saint and big Rowdy were the start of the revolution at Anfield.I recall his first match for us against Everton in a Liverpool senior cup final and he scored a hat-trick.
                    I always remember the church notice board in Oakfield Road -it had a notice what will you do when Jesus comes,some body wrote move St John to inside right.Happy Birthday Saint and thanks for the memories.

      One other thing to thank the Saint for was that brilliant goal he scored against Leeds in the 1965 F.A. Cup Final.By scoring that goal in extra time it brought the Cup home to Anfield for the very first time.Three cheers for Ian St John.

      It was brilliant. He was horizontal when he headed it.
      An amazing day an amazing player and I was privileged to have seen him play being a kid on the Kop.

      Happy Birthday Saint.

      what a shame the FA Cup doesn't have the same appeal these days it was such a big event and until 1965 Liverpool supporters had to suffer the blueshite  goading them with "talk to us when you have won the FA Cup" well we did and a few things more after that.
      St John was a bit of a rebel he moved to Barnston on the Wirral against the wishes of Shankly in fact he didn't tell him he had moved there as players were banned from living this side of the water for fear the Tunnel would be closed. Black and white football was great.
