"He made his debut on 3 August 2013, in a 2–2 draw against Bradford City. The club made a disastrous start to the season, winning just four points from their opening eight games as Fielding conceded nineteen goals. He was subsequently replaced as first choice 'keeper by Elliot Parish."

Oh god.
 

That’s hilarious!! Great find!

Hearing Fleetwood Town and Burton Albion are interested in Hendry 😔

Another who’s played his way in to a higher contract elsewhere. Now I may get slaughtered for this and maybe RG has some stats to back it up, but I’m still not convinced he’d be able to back it up again and just think he’s incredibly patchy. I think he had improved as a player and I’d much rather have kept him, but I still think there would be a chance he’d hit 2/3 goals next season much like he did the first time he was made the main striker.

He’s had two consistent runs in our team in different seasons and scored for fun in both. What else does he have to do to shake off this “patchy” label?

In this run compared to 19/20 I think the big difference is that his hold up and general play matches his goal scoring - meaning if he did go through a barren run we wouldn’t be needing to carry him in the team like we maybe would have had to in the past.

Yeah, I think he's predominantly been good when playing with a strike partner? My memory's a bit hazy though. I wasn't bothered about him leaving on loan last season (or at the start of this season), but that was primarily because he wasn't suited to Callum's system involving one lone striker. This likely resulted in a significant hit to his confidence as well.

I think it was best for both parties to be honest. If McInnes hadn’t come in at Killie either I don’t think he’d have been back. Just weird how it ended up working out in the end.

In other news…..Wright has been released from Hibs.

Would love it if St Mirren or the likes come along and gazzump us for Drey Wright. Feels inevitable he’ll sign for us though.

And Livi snap up Isma. I'm honestly fuming. We should have secured his services in January, but we opted for Nadir Ciftci.

I genuinely forgot about Isma. Seems to have had a rather unique career also.

Drey Wright was sat behind us in the Main stand for the return leg against ICT, along with Ali McCann & Jason Kerr. Since then I have been convinced he will be signing for us again at some point in the summer.

Hope not, we need new blood not returning failures.

Jim Goodwin's gone mate so I'd say that whilst not at all impossible, the chances have reduced significantly.

 

Thankfully.

Drey Wright is an overpaid crock who does lots of running while contributing absolutely nothing in front of goal.

He's an absolute textbook Davidson signing.

Mores the pity. Seems like we may be trying to get shot of O’Halloran and I reckon Goodwin’s St Mirren would’ve been prime candidates for him too.

Sounds like comments made about Conway and Bryson to me,and they were more that decent in the cup winning season,Wright can play in many positions,which is a plus in my eyes,both wings,wing back,midfield in a 4,front 3 too,so not adverse to him coming back
