Thread: Derek Riordan

  1. #1

    Derek Riordan

    Is Deeks officially retired now? Would love him on the pitch at half time if so. His career at us should be widely acknowledged too.

    Apologies if already covered, the Buffon story plus Edinburgh city thread made me think.

    I'm sure there will be people on here wanting the man to play for us when he's 70.

    I would say so too BUT I am coming around to the fact Griffiths just may be a better finisher but Deeks scored some real belters it may be a coin toss.

    Frightening thought - if you're a SPL goalie.

    You could easily make 2 YouTube compilations of Leight. One would be goals with left foot the other with right foot.

    Leigh’s finish against Dundee United at Easter road with his right foot on the volley was as good a finish as you’ll see.

    Deeks is the most naturally talented footballer produced by Hibs in the last 30 odd years. Sadly he's not been fit enough to play at our standard the last 6 years or so.

    I'd have him back in a shot! However, he should be coaching Hibs youth teams.

    Leigh’s finish against anybody is as good a finish as you’ll see.

    Riordan's goal against Hearts at Easter Road from about 25 yards is one of the best strikes of a ball I have ever seen.

    American football style apart from that he is well past his sell by date at this level , but no doubting it he was a talented player who wasted to much of his career on the bench and fitness wise ..

    Seemed like he was doing well at Edinburgh City.... I wonder why he didn't just stay and enjoy playing locally.....?

    Deek for me, although what a quality pair! We'll be lucky to have anyone similar again any time soon.

    I loved Deeks but Sparky was a better finisher IMO.

    Both phenomenal finishers but I'd say Deek was the better natural finisher IMO. His goal against Hearts at Tynecastle where it came to him diagonally through the air (from a great cross by Murphy I think?) and he hits it across to the far post is still to this day one of the best strikes I've ever seen. Flawless technique and made it look effortless. Was right in line with it behind the goals in the Roseburn and was aware then how sweet a hit that was, flew into the corner of the net like a bullet. Plenty more I could wax lyrical about, ones that spring to mind are against the Hearts at ER, Aberdeen at Pittodrie and the goal against Dundee at ER at the 4-4 game which was bizzarely chopped off for offside. Great memories.
