    Decent article about Simon Murray

    Very good read.

    Every interview I read with Murray leaves me more impressed. Seems to have his head screwed on, wants to improve and appreciates being at Hibs. Add to that he's a more than decent player who's scoring goals.

    I absolutely love the guys attitude. He never stops trying and he knows he’s living the dream.

    Seems to be another one that 'gets' the club.

    Why does every comment about him always focus on his hair colour though? 'the flame haired frontman', the carrot topped cavalier' or similar pishy rhetorical flourishes.

    He surely must be getting considered for Scotland? There's no other Scottish forward playing regularly and scoring goals in the top flight out with Griffiths that I'm surprised he wasn't called up for the Holland game for cover.

    Surely not? This is the forward who Stephen Craigen says has severe limitations to his game, and who will need to improve his first touch before he can be considered a quality player

    I was slightly sceptical when we signed him but I've been massively impressed. He's been excellent and we don't miss Cummings one bit.

    For me he's an upgrade on Cummings. At least he's capable of being a lone striker, something Cummings isn't suited to in my opinion

    True. His workrate is unreal.

    Hmmm wouldn't go that far but to be fair he's already taken to scoring against the Yams

    Excellent interview. A really decent grounded genuine man. Good on you Simon and keep up the hard work pal. Great stuff.

    He may be better suited to a lone striker role but technically no way is he an upgrade on Cummings imo.

    In regards to the article it's good to see someone who genuinely is loving every minute of his time at the club and wants to be the best he can be. If only Jamie Insall had the same attitude.

    That says more about Craigen than it does about Simon Murray.

    I'm not necessarily disagreeing with you, but what did Cummings give us that Murray doesn't?

    Tbf to JC he was capable of the spectacular. Murray might not have a 25 yarder in his pocket but his workrate and desire is more valuable for me, especially in the lone striker role.

    He's a long way off IMO. Good player for us on a good run of form but nowhere near international level yet.

    More consistent goalscorer

    I'm another who wasn't sure when he signed and saw him as a squad player but he's definitely won me over. He still needs to work on parts of his game and I think he's miles from the Scotland squad but overall very pleased he's a Hibs player.

    Cummings’ first touch and control wasn’t all that great either to be honest. He looked quite clumsy at times although he did improve a lot last season.

    If Murray scores 7 more before the end of the season he'll be on 20. Very good since he was only considered a squad player by many
