Is ok good enough ? 

we are where we are. He's not a Cooper or a Laudrup, so cant get that excited. He is an improvement and he is ok.

Playing wide, teams will quickly suss him out, show him onto his weaker foot away from goal and he will struggle to hurt you.

I seen him likened to Sinclair at celtic, teams have pretty much sussed him and he has been a lot quieter this season, but yet he has still scored plenty goals and i just can't see Murphy providing the same goal threat.

I think he will be a decent player but don't see the point in a wankfest over a player just because they played in England, learned that lesson before.

He was very predictable in the first half.

Steady, nothing special but finding his feet. Han't been as bad as some make out and played well yesterday.

Abject as fuck, every ball over hit and could literally do nothing right.

I think once he calms down and gets to grips with things he might be an asset, but yet to see anything great off him.

I was initially a bit negative but he has a great engine, and is a box to box player, helps his left back enormously. But he has lacked a real end product thus far till he was moved to the right yesterday. its very early days yet for him.

I thought the Hibs game he was ok and at least tried to grab the game by the scruff of the neck and make something happen, yesterday during the first half i gdnuinely hoped we hadn't committed to signing him after his loan runs out but he improved when switched.

High on effort, low on quality so far but I don't think we'll see the best of him until next season.

Even below par, I already think he gives us a better balance just by giving John a bit more freedom and security to go on the rampage.

Done well so far, but I expect him to start scoring more goals.

He has potential and works very hard. Perhaps his goal yesterday will give him some needed confidence

Decision making in the final third leaves a lot to be desired at the moment, hopefully now he's got his goal he'll stop trying to shoot when a pass is the better option. Also he's woeful at corners, not sure he beat the front post once on Sunday (other than when he ballooned it to the other side of the box). 

That said, there is an element of quality there and he's a great option to have on the right and left - like any winger he can blow hot and cold, hopefully as he gets his fitness this will improve.

He strikes me as trying too hard/putting too much pressure on himself to impress which, I think, is affecting his decision making in the last third.  Hopefully the goal and ever-increasing match fitness will see him now kick on as, no doubt, there's a player there.

He is workmanlike.  Pretty solid in some departments. Not a flair player.  Depends how much polish he can put on what we have seen.

Another one of our players who seems to struggle to control a ball

He's done ok. 

He's been on the ball loads and is trying to make things happen without getting the rewards. Unsurprising that when he cuts in from the left he repeatedly runs into traffic. The right would suit him better but the left is where the position is available.

Hopefully he can step up a level now he has his goal and as others get used to his runs. He's already doing more than anyone else we've had on the left in a good few years.

A winger we’ve been crying out for who is actually direct and takes on a player,he will improve more he gets to know his team mates and the fitter he gets.

played well yesterday day and gets us a lot of free kicks and corners.

a much better upgrade on McKay,moh and windass when he was playing wide left

Don’t think he’s been that bad, he’s good at helping out John.

He’s been no worse than anybody brought in, in January

I think he's got and improves us. Will improve as he gets more games.

In short, he's around as good a player we can get and retain. If he was much better he wouldnt be here in the first place or if he was shite he would be gone (eventually)

Same goes for Tav, John (who is slowly growing on me), Bates, Jack, Docherty, Windass, Morelos, Dorrans, Cummings. These are all players we can build a squad around to challenge with over the next few years. 

McCrorie as well but i can see him in the prem in 3-4 years time if not before and hopefully his brother can challenge soon for the gloves .

He's got better every game IMO and had a few very decent performances. Are people expecting Messi?

I think he is some player with a lot more goals/assists to offer.  He gets on the ball a lot!  Sizes up defenders, backs them up and can take them inside/out.  Rarely do you see him stop, turn and play it back, very direct.  If John can get up beside him we can cause teams a lot of problems.

I still don't think that he's at 100% yet

The boy is a tryer and the balance that he gives us is a big bonus,remember that we had nothing at all down the left for a looong time now.

He'll do for me,nice goal yesterday as well

I think the reason why so many people are unimpressed is because so far, his decision making has been poor - he has cut in loads of times and players have ran off but he's either delayed too long to slide them in or looked for the shot and then has to turn back until our players come back from their offside positions or hit a shot from an unrealistic position because he has no other options. 

He'll come good - hopefully his goal will give him a bit of confidence but he is one of those players who can go past people with ease and we've lacked that for a long time.

Not impressed me so far. Not really any end product. Cuts inside and rarely hits it.

Realise he hasn’t had much game time though and he is only on loan so no obligation to buy if he doesn’t improve.
