The table shows some interesting stats. For a start Mackie has a higher strike rate than Lee Miller, begging the question as to why banners of ‘Miller must stay’ were flown by the red army yet many do not want to see Mackie offered a new deal? The stats also reveal Joe Harper, ‘King of the Beach End’ as by far the dons most formidable goalscorer. Somewhat surprisingly John Hewitt comes out bottom of our table in terms of strike rate, which seems to me the best way of judging a striker.
