And, if you happen to be a St Mirren fan who also PLAYS for the Buddies, it’s been a truly amazing week.
Add in the fact that you scored the winning goal against Celtic in last Sunday’s League Cup semi-final and then followed that up with ANOTHER winning strike in the midweek SPL clash with Inverness Caley Thistle and you start to have the sort of script that only Hollywood could conjure up.
So, if you happen to be Saints striker Steven Thompson, life doesn’t get much better.
And, if the comments which have flowed into Buddie Banter this week are anything to go by, it seems the sky’s the limit for Thommo.
He’s being tipped as a future St Mirren manager and would probably stand a decent chance of being elected if he ran for Prime Minister.
William Livingstone, of Ralston, Paisley, e-mailed Buddie Banter to say: “I want to congratulate big Thommo on what has been an incredible week.
“He was brilliant against Celtic at Hampden on Sunday and it was awesome to see the look on his face when he scored our third goal.
“You can certainly tell that he’s a St Mirren fan!
“And, just when you think life can’t get any better for him, he then pops up with the winning goal against Inverness.
“What a guy. At this rate, they’ll be erecting a statue in his honour at the entrance to St Mirren Park!”
Fans have also taken to Twitter to heap praise on Thommo, who has bagged seven goals from his last eight games and now has 14 in total for the season.
Black & White Army (@bawarmy) said: “Love the Thommohawk!
“He talks the club up at every opportunity. Will make a great St Mirren manager in the future.”
Meanwhile, Daniel Morrow (@danielmorrow) kept his message short and simple as he wrote: “Steven Thompson, I love you!”
Stuart Gillespie (@SMTID) was on the edge of his seat on Wednesday night as Thompson rose above the Caley defence to send a header beyond the reaches of Antonio Reguero for what proved to be the winning goal.
He tweeted: “Smash and grab stuff from Saints but I don’t care about that. Three points is all that matters.
“Steven Thompson scores when he wants!”
Thommo’s team-mate Craig Samson has been getting his fair share of the plaudits after his fine penalty save from Charlie Mulgrew on Sunday and his impressive performance against the Highlanders on Wednesday night.
Former Saints star Craig Dargo (@craigdargo) tweeted: “Penalty save from big ‘Sammy’ the turning point. Deserved it.”
