Thread: Drey Wright

  1. #91
    I'm at a loss as to what type of player Wright is meant to be.

    He's been played as a wide attacking midfielder/winger BUT had shown that he had very little pace, zero trickery to beat a man and no more than a rudimentary ability to cross the ball.

    Defensively he can't tackle and is poor in the air....

    So whilst I'm all for giving guys a chance (he's had more than half a season by the way) could someone explain what this particular player does or can bring to the team??

    Is he being played out of position and can't adapt (a bit like Newell last season) or is he simply not good enough?

    He certainly never caught my eye when he was a St Johnstone player.

    He said in his interview on the Hibs website that he can play across the front attacking midfield line and also as an extra striker, yet to see it myself.

    The game Hibs drew away to St Johnstone 1-1, Ollie Shaw scored a header at back post - Drey Wright ripped who ever was left back that day a new ********. Very direct constantly got to byline.

    Heís had quite a serious injury since then & letís be honest never gets a consistent run in the team particularly in the same position to build momentum.

    I actually feel he would be more suited to being a box to box midfielder. A very similar transition that Paul Hartley made. Now I donít think heís going to be a international level player like Hartley but I certainly think we would get more out him in that role.

    Hes had enough chances. He has been shocking in a number of matches.

    He isnt good enough and it's time to move him on ASAP. Simon Murray got punted for much less.

    He will start today probably. 😂

    We'd all take that as the outcome of his time here.
    Mature, sensible signature required for responsible position. Good prospects for the right candidate. Apply within.

    I actually want Drey Wright to play well as he seemed reasonable at StJohnstone. Just hasnít worked out so far but the manager must see something in him that we donít in front of our TV screens.

    I was thinking yesterday, when is the last time we signed an ex player from St Johnstone who turned out to be considered a good signing in the end?

    I'm thinking back more recently to our signings and guys like Drey Wright and Danny Swanson (obviously had understandable personal circumstances) then I think to other clubs like Aberdeen signing Stevie May who flopped massively.

    All the above were highly regarded by St Johnstone then flopped at us or others in the league.

    Looking good in a crap side doesn't mean you are good, Wright played for Colchester in League 2 scoring just 8 goals in 135 games, and scoring zero goals in 36 games at St Johnstone, so far it's 16 games and just 1 goal. His career and record shows he's not prolific and has had 3 major knee injuries since 2014, he's 25 now and I cannot see him progressing, sometimes players just don't work out and maybe it's best to move on.

    May flopped at Aberdeen due to a horrific injury at Preston.
    They made a massive mistake paying £400k to bring him back.
    This has probably been his best season since the injury but he lost the edge over other players the day that happened

    Drey is a bit like Danny Swanson. Does well at St Johnstone where there is arguably less pressure but it doesnít seem to click at Hibs. Both players always seemed to be carrying a bit more timber than they should and often look like they were blowing out their backsides like it was a game of 5s on day 2 of a stag do.
