    Hope Yogi read that. We will get the best out of Riordan in a more central role.

    Please Yogi get the message, Riordan is a waste out on the left, shift him upfront and he'll bang in 20 odd goals a season.

    Aye, it's criminal. Not just a waste of his talent and a natural goalscorer but a waste of a position in left mid.

    Yogi seems stubborn though and wants players who work hard for the team so Nish will be up front on Sat guaranteed!

    Better even still... How about playing the guy in the position he was impressively prolific in when a 'partner' to Garry O'Connor? Just behind Stokes and slightly to the left.

    I can't imagine that Riordan will have been keeping his views on this secret at the Training Centre. I hope that Yogi reacts.

    Re: Yogi take note. Riordan wants Central Role.

    For me Riordan was definitely on the left of a front 3 on saturday. That's also where he played when we played Montrose imo but those are the only 2 games I was at in February so can't comment on the others. No doubt he looked more threatening but his missed chances last saturday cost us (2 one-on-one's at 1-0, several other decent shooting positions and at times he should have passed to Stokes!). Still I'm very confident he will start putting these chances away if he remains in a more advanced position. So I think some of the criticism Hughes 'wasting him out wide etc' is a wee bit wide of the mark. For me he has played his more favoured position in some games.

    There have been plenty of games though were Riordan has played as an orthdox left midfielder. There is no doubt all Riordan's skills revolve around being a threat in the final third so it doesn't make a lot of sense to have him tracking back in our half. Robs us of a potential goal threat and he tends to just get in Ian Murray's way.

    The only problem for me is that if Riordan plays up front, he naturally sits slightly behind to the left which means we really need a front 3. A partnership of Stokes and Riordan would struggle imo because we would have no one to hold the ball up and, frankly, at times they clearly deliberately choose not to pass the ball to each other and shoot from difficult positions.

    We really need a central striker to hold the ball up which they could play off (ala O'Conner/Killen). Nish is an honest trier but doesn't have the ability/physicality and Benji has the ability but doesn't seem to have the attitude to produce regularly. I have to say I was quite impressed with Cillian Sheridan on saturday and think he could be a decent option but I don't know what the deal is at the end of his loan spell at St Johnstone.

    Yep and that's been the case most of the season, that's why he has only scored 11 goals this season and doesn't look like scoring many more at the moment.
