Scott Hogan lapped up the plaudits from his Brentford team-mates after the striker bagged a hat-trick in the Bees' 5-0 win over Preston.
The 24-year-old opened the scoring 11 minutes before half-time when he latched onto Romaine Sawyers through ball and beat Anders Lindegaard.
He had his second when he nipped in to punish a woeful Preston back-pass, after they had gone down to 10 men, and had his third when he finished off a fine team move.
And his team-mates were full of praise for the hat-trick hero, taking to Twitter to pay tribute to the striker as well as lauding him when speaking to GetWestLondon after the game.
Defender Andreas Bjelland was one of those and he revealed that he calls Hogan 'Hulk' because of his physique, as well as the obvious link to the wrestler.
He said: “Hulk is difficult. He's a top player and he's good to be out of the game and then he's there.
“You don't see him and then he snaps. He gets in front of the goalie and gets the ball. He's been working on his physique for two years. He's a beast which is why I call him the Hulk.”
Ryan Woods has been Brentford's man of the moment with his performances in midfield and he loves the simplicity of his game.
“Everything he hits at the moment is going in. It's good for us, good for him and good for everyone. He thinks he could have had more and I'm sure he'll get plenty more,” Woods said.
“He loves to play off the back of a defender's shoulder. He's a nightmare for them.
“He plays very much offside then comes onside and he's that quick he gives anybody a tough time.
“It's great for me to have him in front of me so I can look up, put the ball over the top and know he's going to be there. He's a pleasure to play with.”
Hogan's hat-trick will certainly catch the eye of clubs in the Championship and the way he takes his goals has been impressive.
Romaine Sawyers knows there is likely to come a time when clubs are making sizable offers for the striker so will enjoy playing with him while the striker is at Griffin Park.
Sawyers said: “Scotty makes those runs all the time in training and in games and it's just about getting the ones right, we know he's clinical enough to put them away.
“I think that changed the context of the game. That really calmed us down and we started ticking the scoreline in the end shows that.
He added: “Scott is a good player and a good person. He'll be honest with us as a group and the club will be honest with him I'm sure.
“Whether something happens or not, I don't know. Whilst he's here we're going to enjoy him. He's a great player and he'd be a great asset to every team and today was a glimmer of what he can do when he turns up.”
"If he keeps doing that we'll be in the position to say we're not far from the Premier League. It's going to benefit us.
"If people are talking about him then he's only doing the right thing for us and if that's the case, we're going in the right direction."
Hogan now has 13 goals in 16 Championship appearances for the club and five in his last three games as the form he showed at the end of last season, where he bagged seven in 163 minutes.
Dean Smith was also delighted with Hogan's performance and paid tribute to his movement without the ball as well as his obvious talent in finishing.
The head coach said: "The kids just a good player. I said last season that I'd seen him play in League Two and he looked an amazing prospect and Brentford paid money for him then.
“He's come in, suffered a few injuries but come through that and it shows tremendous strength of character to be doing what he's doing now. His movement is fantastic and his finishing isn't bad is it."
