Delighted for him today....a goal in each of the last 2 games. At a time when we need players to step up, Shaw has put more experienced players in the Hibs squad to shame.
He doesnít hide, which has taken courage given our recent run.
Keep up the good form Ollie.
Yup both him and Porto are putting some more experienced squad members to shame at the moment...they have both stepped right up in the last 2 games..some more experienced squad members should take note ...
Thought both olly and Porto were 2 of our best today along with Hyndman and Ambrose
Watch Steven Fletcher and Deek when they were 20 year olds - Deek in particular was about 8 stone in a rainstorm. Yes, he may need to work on upper body but he makes up for it meantime with his instincts and positioning. You don't need to be 'physical' for that kind of game / movement.
Ok, what was Dereks game?
He had pace (didnít last long), never won a header and rarely beat a defender with a trick.
Ollie Shaw is completely different from Derek. Ollie Shaw needs to hit the weights and improve his bottle (too many half hearted 50:50ís).
I thought he did verylittle else than score goals last season but noticed a big improvement in his all round game since the start of this season. I think he's the most natural goalscorer we've produced in my lifetime (30 next month)
The key reason I rate him is that he is a "natural goal scorer". This is a "gift" that few footballers have.
Yes, he is still a work in progress, but what a gift to have.
PS: I'm still incensed him being denied that "winner" against The Jambos by incompetent officials.

Shaw has has done very well, getting to where he is at this stage. scored in the last 2 games, and hit the post at the Killie game. if it had went other side, it was a goal which brought us right back in. not the finished article, as many have said but going in the right direction pretty fast
Definitely in our best interest to keep persevering with young Oli and getting behind him. Look at the lad Shankland the Don's let go. Sometimes it's just game time and experience these lads need to really reach there full potential.
