Exactly. You could play brilliantly, create 25 sublime chances which some numpty misses, and get no credit. Then the ball accidentally bounces off the 17 year old triallist into the path of the CF, who scores, and the triallist gets a stat. 

What if you consistently assist the assists, eg a brilliant playmaker playing it accurately long & wide, getting no credit, the point Tranmere is making?

All footy stats are fun. Some are more meaningful than others.

Drey Wright - 1,168 minutes - 0 goals/0 assists

Danny Swanson - 245 minutes - 0 goals/1 assist

David Wotherspoon - 1,125 minutes - 3 goals/0 assists

Michael O'Halloran - 1,286 minutes - 2 goals/1 assist

No comment.

From what I've seen of Drey Wright, he does seem to be pretty good at putting crosses in. Perhaps there's an issue with the fact that we have good wingers, but our strikers aren't really the kind who thrive on crosses (possibly with the exception of Hendry, but he's often on the bench). I wonder what Drey Wright's assist stats would be like if we had a big target man in the middle. I also think Wright may have suffered slightly from the loss of Foster, who was great at overlapping the winger in front of him.

I hope Drey re-signs but don't think he will . I think he will take the chance of going back down south. Would have hoped for a wee bit payback for the patience Saints showed in rehabilitation after his injury.

Players loyalties these days tend to be the almighty dollar.

It is a perfect example of how he can be involved in a goal but not a direct assist.

I missed the memo that he has gone from stand out player of the season to being worthy of chucking.

I missed the memo that said he is stand out player of the season.

Next couple of games will show if he is a stand out player.

Last season's man of the match polls had him miles Infront. Took Matty Kennedy about 15bgames to catch the points total Wright had accumulated.

And then he suffered his 3rd season ending cruciate injury in 6 years. Hes also had two long term absences in that time frame before joining us to his knees aswell.

Rumours go hes trying to become one of our highest earners.

Would you say a player with his injury record, and goal return, is worth that?

It would have to be heavily weighted towards appearances, but he’s worthy of being a top earner. Not too fussed on his goal return. I think he’s only started to hit form again over the last month.

Where are you seeing these "rumours "?

Depends how much he’s asking for. He’s a good player, but I wouldn’t break the bank for him. Might be he wants to move back to England. All this is irrelevant if the club haven’t even tried to talk with him, which seems to be what Tommy is suggesting.

You wanted us to sign Stevie May to be our most expensive player he was crocked and then never showed any form again.

Just noticed on the BBC that Ryan Kent hasn't provided an assist for over a year.

Stevie May is a proven top flight striker unfairly written off because McInnes played him as a left winger or central midfielder. That's him now got 5 goals in his last 9 games.

Wright, yet again, fluffed a chance today and arguably that goal could've sealed the win. He still has only 1 league goal, and that was a heavily deflected cross.

Absolutely agree regarding Stevie great to see his confidence gradually growing
