Article in sporting life (can't link from here) is quoting Derek as saying he wishes to see out his career at HIbs.

Very complimentary about CC also.

The ball's in Petrie's court now. CC's statement of a few weeks ago that Hibs wouldn't move for Riordan but just wait and see what happens, seems a bit redundant. If ever there was a 'come-on' this is it. Surely Petrie won't allow this to drag on.

What I took from CC's stance on Riordan's contract situation was that he was waiting until he could make him a good enough offer to convince him to stay, i.e. after he has got rid of most of the dead wood at the end of the season he will have more budget available to offer Deeks a contract that will keep him at ER for a long time (rest of career even better).

This was my understanding also, free up some wages and offer what should be a decent deal.

Indeed it does, happy days.

Last night was a real team performance, if we see that much desire from now until the end of the season there will be no complaints from me.

"I want to stay" could just be a negotiation gambit.

This isn't a criticism of Riordan personally, but we all know how footballers operate - "I want to stay" often translates as "give me the money I'm asking for or I'm gone".

However, Calderwood brought in six players but none of them could be described as a replacement for Riordan - in fact they seem to be players who can help Riordan offer more to the team.

And I think he'd be mental if he goes to Rangers - both sides of his family would hate him, the Huns wouldn't take to him, and what does he do if it doesn't work out?

Great stuff from Deeks, also found these two funny:greengrin



The presence of Sodje, who signed from Charlton on deadline day, will relieve some of the burden on Riordan.
The Scotland striker added: "He's brilliant in the air and he's dead strong - he's got a 12-pack; he's ripped."



St Mirren dropped to 11th place with the defeat and defender Marc McAusland is wary of Irn-Bru Second Division Ayr, who provide the opposition in the Scottish Cup on Saturday.
McAusland said: "It's a horrible place down there.

My take also, with a bit of "wait & see who I can bring in to compliment your game, Deek". After all he must have been pissed off playing alongside some of those imposters every week.

As a further angle, Deek might not want to sign a contract and find himself in division 1. After yesterday evening I'd therefore be more hopeful we can keep him.

If he is willing to put as much effort into every game as he did last night then I do hope that he is offered a new deal but I would be annoyed if it was outwith a sensible wage structure.

The last couple of seasons have shown what happens when you have 3 or 4 highly paid but the rest of the squad made up of lower tier players, huge inconsistency and at times some awful football.

2-3k per week is a top wage in the SPL outside the OF and I for one would rather be paying 15k per week to six good quailty players than to just three.

This is what took Dundee Utd to 3rd last year and a Scottish cup win where as our results relied solely on whether Riordan or Stokes could score enough goals to win a game because the rest of the team was lacking the required quality.

I've been saying it for a long time, if Deek can be part of a team and not just the cherry on top then we have a player worth keeping but if he is just an individual then I don't think we can afford him.

I would prefer if he backed it up with goals just now. The body language may well improve when the feel good factor returns to Hibs.

I thought that was good - in fact it's good that CC had the wherewithal to be nice considering the pressure he was under with where we are in league - not only that but he had to do his bingo team selections and then keep in touch with RP to find out who was coming in and who was leaving - talk about stressful!

He might be top of the pile of a team that's been flirting with relegation but his numbers really don't jump out and say he's indispensable.

However, now that we have a more attacking set-up with decent width and Sodje to do the graft up front then I can see him being a very important part of CC's plans.

I think they do. He's top scorer by a mile and has top assists in a struggling side, give us a decent team and he will produce even better stats imo.

Fair enough, but in future I think the best measure of how Riordan is doing is going to be how many goals the team scores and not how many he scores.

Top players stand out in poor sides, Derek does not and never has.

He can make a good team better but first we need a good team. It was a good goal he scored the other night and his performance was probably his best all round of the season.

Some fans need to stop making excuses for him, too many times I read or hear that he's not this type of player or that kind of player. The facts are that he is our best paid, most talented senior pro at the club and I don't think its too much to ask for him to act like it every week.
