Great start to the season!

Love his work rate and movement. He may not be Cummings..he might not be Holt but he's scoring goals and playing very well and will improve our team.

Long may it continue.

Also needs a song !!

Great movement and work rate, and finishing the vast majority of his chances at the moment.

Him and Boyle will run defences ragged, even if they're not scoring, and tire out defences and leave space for others.

He has been excellent since he got here. Plays nice and high up the pitch, forcing the centre halves back and stretching the play. And when we are attacking he makes a bee line for the 6 yard box. Great to see. He'll score plenty.

I watched this guy closely tonight, he made many runs which were either ignored or the ball was played a fraction late. He is on his toes and moving in the box which creates the space . Being an auld bugger he reminded me very much of another red head Keith Wright, movement is very similar. I remember a testimonial( I think) which Kenny Dalgleish played in and Keith got a hat trick(?), after the game he said Kenny told him "just run the channels son and I'll find you". Simon Murray would thrive on someone hitting that quick early pass into him.

Alan Sneddon's testimonial against Aston Villa. Dalgleish never left the centre circle until half time.

Very frustrated when he was caught offside a couple of times at the start, including once when he "scored", but the timing will come as he builds familiarity with his team mates.

I reckon he will score more this season than Jason did last season. Add to to that , that apart from his goals ( which were of course vital) Jason didn't really contribute much more , Simon Murray does and I can only see him improving , his attitude is fantastic.
His Dad was very similar, not hugely gifted but very effective and definitely a nightmare to play against. In more ways than one he ain't pretty on the eye, but I've been very impressed with him so far.
He will of course have his bad days, I hope the fans stick with him as I think he could be a rough diamond.

He was on side at least 3 time when called off.... i was right in line for 2 of them. Lino had a nightmare tbh.

Keith got all four that night. Kenny Dalglish's passing was brilliant, had he not been such a fantastic goal scorer, and so played up front, he would have made a brilliant midfielder.

Whilst I'd love that to be true, I feel you are over-expecting on Murray....he has scored, in competitive games, against Arbroath and Montrose ...depending on who we sign, I'm not even sure he will be a regular starter every week...as for Scotland - Don't think he will play at that level.

I think the bit he's got to establish is that he can score against teams from the top league which he didn't manage against Ross County.

Not suggesting he can't btw but it would certainly be ironic to sign a striker who can hammer them in against lower league opposition now we're back in the top flight ;)

I have to say his volleyed third during the week was a lovely piece of skill.
I reckon it says a lot about the pre-formed opinions that we're not all raving about it - I think that move and finish has very little to do with the quality of the opposition.

I don't think our team or formation was as good against Ross County as it was against the other teams.

Murray was far more isolated, which wasn't really his fault.

I've been very pleasantly surprised by him so far and I think he'll do well for us.

Needs a strike partner though.

I only watched the goals but I rewound his third, got my ten year old over to watch, and told him watch and learn, that's perfect centre forward play! He started the move with nice skill, made the forward run at the right time, got into the right position, kept equidistant from two defenders, asked for the ball twice at the right time, when the cross came over kept his eye on it till it hit his boot. But the key was his positioning and timing. Well just have to see if he's as good against Aberdeen defenders as Arbroath ones :greengrin

Can all those folk who doubted his signing now make themselves known and give us their views now?

Some humble pie required methinks.

Happy to eat some of that pie as I didn't rate him. Absolutely delighted to be proved so wrong and I'm now very glad we've got him :agree:

i doubted his signing , he's hit the ground running but its been against part time opposition . If he can repeat this against the big boys i will eat a big slice of humble pie , at least he's going into the season full of confidence .. heres hoping he can keep it up

I was not a fan of his at all and stated so when he signed, his performances last season were not good enough and I stand by that. He looks to be playing a lot more central in this team though compared to last year where he said he had to do a lot more work away from goal to try and make things happen, and he's flying at the mo. Happy to be proven wrong at this time, although the opposition is not what it will be in a couple of weeks but I now think he'll do fine here this season, he's changing my opinion on him more everytime I see him.

Like the look of him so far but his ability to score against lower league opposition has never been in doubt. He struggled last week against premier opposition. Brian Graham scored 6 goals in the league cup group stages last year so I'd be wary of reading too much into that.

Looking forward to seeing him playing alongside a strike partner.

To be fair most people were simply having a grown up discussion on the merits of a footballer player we signed and many were of the perfectly reasonable opinion that he hadn't looked anything special at his previous club either based on statistics or what we'd seen of him in that league. I always find it a little weird when anything other than "Welcome Simon!" is treated as though you're a neg-ferret.

Barring a few mentalists who chucked their toys out the pram and tried to make it a thing about a cheap replacement for Cummings most of the chat was fairly reasonable (though it might have been that thread some bam was talking about not buying a season ticket because of it).

In a better team against poorer opposition SM has done great.
Long may it continue.

Seven (7) goals so far is impressive goal scoring form. Even though the opposition hasn't been all that good, Murray has still been in the right place at the right time and stuck the ball in the net.

Just keep doing that lad.

His work rate was excellent and scored 2 out 3 chances. It's for any other striker to come in and better him.

Trying not to get carried away until we see what he does in the league, but there's cult hero potential here I think.

7 goals so far. Simon said when he arrived that he'd like to score more goals for Hibs than his Dad Gary did. Pretty sure Gary scored a total of 7 in his first full season!

He's won me over. Not just for the goals against part time opposition but the energy, work rate, determination and all that goes with it. Still not convinced that he'll be all that great a signing but he's hugely in credit so far and he's got a decent song.

I remember when some folk were worried that we'd not replace Cummings goals, i never worried about that, JC was never that good, and he will be back up the road playing for us or another scottish team sooner than some folk think.

A great start to his Hibs career. Though the proof in the pudding will be how he fairs in the league against teams of similar quality.

Though the proof in the pudding will be how he fairs in the league against teams of similar quality.For me the important thing is his work rate, movement and determination. Regardless of the opposition if he keeps that up he is gonna get a barrowload of chances in this team...lets face it we r a far superior side to the Dundee Utd of last season. He may not be as prolific against SPL teams as he has been thus far...but this guy is gonna score goals For us..of that I'm now pretty confident

I think he'll score, ( barring injury )

22 goals this season. Also think that him and Boyle would be an awesome pairing to bring on with about 30 minutes of a game left. Two of them would rip a tired defence to shreads.

So many difference options available to NL to exploit.

A very promising start but I guess at this moment in time thats all it is. The season starts for real next week but he's got a good start and goals behind him going into that season.

I think the team is looking better balanced, Jasons scoring record is there to be seen but sometimes he did leave you feeling he could work a bit harder and contribute in other areas. I'll be interested to see how he fares at Forest, if Im honest I think he will struggle there. As far as Hibs are concerned we've moved on and I think we've on well, Im more than hopeful we'll be very competitive this season.

Aye , we know you've told us before. Not sure why a thread praising our new striker needs you having yet another dig at our old one who was a star for us. Each to their own.

Great goalscorer and that's the hardest thing a footballer can do, but his work outside the box and his hold up play was average.

I feel the team will be much more balanced this season, and we have someone in Murray who will score just as many goals, but do the work off the ball that Cummings rarely did.

Alloa player suggesting Simon Murray put his first goal in with his hand. He's out of shot in the Hibs TV footage but I was behind the goal and I'm sure I would have noticed if he handled it.
