He is the best player we have. Full stop.

Think a rousing reception will take place despite the recent events. :agree:

Ditto!
Argued on a night out! Who hasn't?

Difference is everybody knows him. Victimised, it's that simple. Banned from every nightclub for arguing, it's a joke. Then they plaster it over the papers and get him another ban for trying to get in somewhere else. Anyone else that gets banned goes elsewhere and gets in because nobody knows them.

Keep reading about brawls! What brawl, it was shouting.
Spends the night in cells! No given a ticket and released.

One day he'll realise that the best way to get to those folk is just smile and walk away. Then he's won.
That and ramming in another winner against that mob, then just stand like Cantona and look at them.

They reason they hate him is simple. Jealousy.

Chin up Deeks!

I second your comment :agree: (Or even 5th it) :greengrin

And I have met Deeks and he is a nice guy :agree:

Daft laddie syndrome ... is that not the case for most males until they reach the age of around 80 .... that's what I heard :dunno:

I've actually met Deeks and found him to be a very polite, affable young laddie...a few years ago obviously.

On top of that he is a superb striker.

Like everybody else I hate it when he is in the paper for the wrong reasons - but I think that despite what others may say that he will never 'learn his lesson' that this time I think he WILL realise its not worth arguing outside nightclubs.

I'd hate to see him in anything other than a Hibs jersey, and faults or no faults he is one of us, and I too would be pleased if he was given a special cheer at our first game.

His problem is he's a hero in only half o' his home toon.the other half are only too happy to pin something,albeit small,on him

That's absolutely right - lets all just read it again and let it sink in.

Why do we have these incessant bouts of drivel from blinkered fans? He is not a GOD, just a footballer who's not handling his life very well.
My gast is flabbered when I read these stupid pleas for nobody to be nasty to him. Surely it's everyone's right to cheer him, or give him laldy as they see fit.

But we are Hibs supporters so are we not allowed to be slightly biased on behalf of a slightly flawed genius dressed in green? Good luck Deeks!:agree:

C'mon.....he's not a bad player but genius like, I think not.
He needs to concentrate on being a good footballer at the moment. Dont think Hibs will take much more of his antics, victimised or not. He should not be putting himslf in compromising situation.

Is John Hughes going to play Riordan when the seasn starts or punish him and himself and the hibs fans by not playing him?

I think and hope that Hughes will play Riordan. The onus is on Riordan to play his part and divorce himself from the reputation he has earned. Not only does he have to earn the respect of the fans but I think his team-mates will be far from impressed by his behaviour and will be looking for some sort of payback. A hat-trick in the first game of the season might go a long way in building bridges.

My 11 year old laddie was playing in a football tournament in Stirling today. The team's top striker Coco is lightning fast and can score with either foot from just about anywhere on the pitch.

At one point he beat 2 men and was dispossed. He ran back twenty yards to tackle and win back the ball, then passed outside.

The return ball was behind him but again he ran back, won the ball and laid off to a fellow striker to score.

What he didn't do was put his hands up in the air to complain about the crap pass, refuse to chase the ball or try to score the world cup goal when there was someone in a better position.

Yes we should all be shouting words of encouragement, for his off the field antics and acting like a pratt:confused:

I would implore Deek not to give fellow Hibbies a bad time by continually behaving like a 17 yr old spanner.

He is the most immature player we have. Full stop.

He's 26 years old, "daft laddie syndrome" doesn't come into it. Twelve months of saying the right things, steering clear of nightclubs and city centre bars, and playing to his full potential will get him far. However, he doesn't seem to understand that a few words said in the right way will get him A)turned away calmly B)in the club. He should have learned by now that Unight are using him as a publicity tool, and adapt his favoured haunts accordingly.

That said, he's looking more slender this season, which will help him no end on the pitch.

26 is still young. Its the crowd he associates himself which doesn't help in the first place.

We all know he has all the talent in the world. I'm gonna predict a newly refreshed, fully fit Deek topping the SPL scoring charts this season.

Mmm....we're all hoping for the best then, on a wing and a prayer.

Leopard, Spots and all that, but I think all the signs suggest it will all probably go pear shaped sooner or later.... unfortunately.

But time will tell.

I'm not exactly sure of the point of the post, as I don't imagine most fans will be giving him a hard time (other than the few miserable cants that would probably boo Pele in a Hibs jersey).

If he screws the nut and performs where it matters most, on the park, then he'll get the backing of the support. If he acts like a total Benji, he'll get pelters.

Over to you Deek!
