Rumour Mill-Oh God Not Riordan Again!!

Rumour Mill-Oh God Not Riordan Again!!

Just when you thought it was safe, Burnley are now said to once again be targeting Hibs' 28 year old striker, Derek Riordan.

How many times have we been linked with him in the past, especially during the Coyle era?

According the the Scottish Daily Record it is thought new Burnley boss Eddie Howe will approach the SPL club and bid £200,000 to take the forward to Turf Moor.

The Scottish international striker started his career at Hibernian in 2000 and also had a early loan spell at Cowdenbeath in 2003.

Riordan then signed for Celtic in a £170,000 deal in June 2006 but struggled to make an impression playing only 24 games for the Buoys over three years.

Burnley were continually linked with the player and reportedly put in a £400,000 offer in January 2008. Celtic though rejected offers from a number of clubs including the Clarets.

He returned to Hibernian for a second spell on the final day of the 2008 summer transfer window for an 'undisclosed' fee.

Who would you prefer tmp out of the three if you could only have two Thommo big Chris or Riordan all seem similar players but Riordan looks quicker than the two we have.

A striker with pace is a must. Could do with him being big too, though. How tall is DR?

5ft 11 plus an half according to Wiki! Is that considered tall enough,wtbm? I remember seeing this lad on a You Tube compilation once and thought he looked impressive. Pacy and lethal in front of goal

God question that Fedup! Riordan is probably more exciting and pacy up front than both Iwelumo and Thommo. Thommo though is probably better when given 90 mins instead of 20 min cameos from the bench. Iwelumo is a one-trick pony in my opinion and needs a partner up front. I would love to see Pato at his best again with Iwelumo in 4-4-2. A Iwelumo/Riordan partnership could be interesting too. We haven't even mentioned Jay Rod and gawd knows what would happen if we got Austin too!???

Out of all of them you mentioned tmp i'd let Thommo and Iwelumo go just because of the age factor and keep Austin, Riordan, Pato and Jay Rod could see a few goals in them four.
