    I've gone from being initially underwhelmed by signing a Dundee United player as our third striker to being overwhelmed by signing a free-scoring number one striker without even realising that I've passed through whelmed.
    no whelm at all.

    There was a great moment at FT when he just stood isolated and stared at the Hibs end, already becoming a fans favourite.

    I wasn't convinced when he signed but looking like a masterstroke by Lennon.

    Opposition defences must hate facing him.

    This should just be the start as well. Wait till Stokes is match fit and they have a chance to build up an understanding.
    Given the quality of our defence and midfield it's frightening to think what we might do if Murray and Stokes are in form and develop an understanding. Murray 10 in 7 and Stokes 2 in 2. Happy times to be a Hibee.

    What a goal that was he scored. Absolutely superb.
    Lennon called it in his interview. Composure following the run was outstanding. More to come from the lad. Playing alongside Stokes will enhance his chances of goals.

    I almost forgot the finish when he was called offside, near the edge of the box outside of the right foot.

    The laddie is flying at the moment.

    And some thought Cummings just couldn't be replaced. Think this guy is a better player overall.

    Brilliant signing.

    He's been outstanding so far. I genuinely thought he was coming in to replace James Keatings and would be more of a squad player.

    Fair play to him though he has been phenomenal in every game he's played. His workrate is second to none.

    I'd like to see if that was offside it was a tremendous finish. He could easily have got another hattrick yesterday

    I thought he was just off at the time.
    It was hard to tell if he had scored as there is always no reaction from those two commentators whether we score or not.

    Aye I didn't think he was at the time. He's just so eager to get in behind that he is going to get caught offside from time to time though.

    Had the near post header that went wide as well.

    What time was the offside goal chalked off as I'll see if I can find it on Hibs TV. Not got the time to watch the whole game at the moment

    It's about 7 mins into the 2nd half.

    Imo he's a good foot onside you can see from the lines cut in the grass, should have stood!

    I wasn't over excited either when we signed him. I knew he had a good engine on him and massive amounts of energy but I never thought of him as a natural goal scorer. After watching replays of all his goals since signing I find his range of scoring ability outstanding. He has great heading ability, wonderful positional sense and he can score from long mazy runs or simple tap ins. He could be the best natural goal scorer we have had for many a year if he can keep this up. There also seems to be a wonderful team spirit there now and even after going a goal down in our two league games there just seems to be a complete confidence amongst the players that they will turn things round.

    I'd forgotten about that- what a finish!

    noticed that as well - definitely a mutual adoration going on!
    His dummy before he scored to put the rangers defender on their arse was gorgeous. What a fantastic player we've got in Simon!

    I've been trying to think of another striker we've had like him and the only one I can think of is Kenny Miller.

    Not sure how well that thought will go down but KM has had a terrific career even if there's signs of it coming to an end now.

    A more well rounded striker than Cummings and more of a team player.

    He's exceeded my expectations. Rightfully first choice striker at the moment.

    If you look back to the original thread when he was playing for the Arabs in the play offs it was even more interesting....

    Hopefully we can get the boy on a longer term deal (assuming his good form continues), seems like he could be a bit of a late bloomer
