Double Winning St Johnstone FC Thread

Recommended Posts

Wright may not have posted many goals/assists during his previous stint - but I always felt he was pretty well involved in getting us into good forward areas and putting opposition defences under pressure that led to chances/goals. We are desperately slow and ponderous and I think the one thing he would guarantee is a bit of drive going forward from that RWB position. We aren’t asking him to get us into a European place here - we’re asking him to give us a bit more pace and attacking threat to get us out of bottom spot. We could definitely do far, far worse.

Wright/MOH/Brown...I know who I'd pick.


Bring him home

Is that the only 3 players on the planet we can pick from like?

The clubs had entire month to resolve this issue and on the final day have reverted back to an ex-player they'd already rejected.

Great stuff.

Exactly.  Not even a discussion to be had there. 

‘contributed f**k all’ in the same way Danny Mcnamara contributed f**k all?


Drey Wright has 2 goals in 67 appearances in this division.

The Hendry goal v Livingston in his final appearance, in 2020, is the only goal or assist he's been involved in as a RWB in his 5 seasons in this country.

Danny McNamara managed a goal and 2 assists from RWB in his 5 months with us.

I can see why, if they're now completely desperate and licking the bottom of the bin for a RWB, Wright would be the "best" option, but let's not pretend he's going to actually contribute to any goals in the next 5 months.

It's not a January transfer window if we don't sign an ex player who'll be rubbish the second time around.

From what I've read about him in the last ten minutes or so, he seems to be quite well-regarded. Only just broke into the Cardiff team at the start of this season and then got injured in September. He returned to full fitness a few weeks ago. He has only played consistently in League Two at this point, so the jury is still out, but I guess it's promising that he's seen a bit of Championship action in recent months (and looked good according to some of their supporters on Twitter).

6"2 and played for Cardiff 3 weeks ago.

f**k it, why not. Whoever plays wing back will be shafted by the system anyway so lets just have a big c**t running into folk until Rooney returns to do the same.
