9 Overreactions Fans Are Definitely Having Towards Their New Signings

9 Overreactions Fans Are Definitely Having Towards Their New Signings

Continuing the trend of the past few years, Premier League clubs continued to spend huge amounts of money on new players during the summer window.

With the hike in player transfer fees has come increased expectations. Players who were relatively unknown are suddenly going for massive prices, and fans are now less patient then ever with their club's new signings.

In keeping with this theme, here are the ridiculously early and over-the-top reactions Premier League fans are probably having to this season's summer signings after the opening two league fixtures.

Mattéo Guendouzi

Forget Arsenal's recent transfer policy of buying big names like Aubameyang or Lacazette, the club need to go back to signing unknown players like this. They never missed out on the Champions League with Yaya Sanogo playing up front.

So far this season Guendouzi has more tackles and interceptions combined in comparison to any other Premier League player, and he looks well on his way to justifying Arsenal's decision to pass on N'golo Kanté two summers ago.


What a waste of money. £52 million for a player who can't even get a game for Brazil?

He got run out of midfield by Dale Stephens over the weekend, and what sort of Brazilian is called Fred? Get Fellaini back in the team.




Alisson Becker

It really looks like Liverpool might not concede a goal this season. After the Salah deal last summer, the Reds have fleeced Roma once again.


Only £67 million? It would have been worth paying twice that to never see Karius flap at another cross. Did you see that save from the free-kick against Crystal Palace? Wow.

Alisson is emerging just as De Gea is floundering, long may it continue.

Jack Wilshere



No wonder Arsene Wenger got the sack, keeping this lad at the club so long. It doesn't matter that he came in on a free transfer, he makes Mark Noble look like Frank Lampard.

At least West Ham have gotten two games out of him before he's ruled out for the rest of the season.

Kepa Arrizabalaga


It was worth Chelsea splashing out a world-record fee just to watch Paul Merson trying to pronounce this name on Soccer Saturday.



Sokratis Papastathopoulos


Another cracker of a name. The former-Dortmund man turns like an oil tanker and makes Shkodran Mustafi look like Usain Bolt.


He is the only defender that has been outplayed by Alvaro Morata in about a year, and he plays like he is 38-years old.

A very Arsene Wenger type signing.


Watford got taken to the cleaners here. Two games, three goals. The Golden Boot is a realistic target.

Of course he was crap for the second half of last season, how could you expect him to play well after the injustice of Marco Silva's sacking?

Finally Everton have a player that will allow them to end the dominance of the top six.


Naby Keita

It would have been worth waiting five years for this guy. Keita looks like a cross between N'Golo Kanté and Steven Gerrard, and is probably already the best midfielder in the league.

He has been unbelievable in the first two games, and if Virgil van Dijk wasn't such a freak of nature Keita would probably already have two man of the match awards to his name.

Jürgen Klopp is incapable of making a bad signing.

Riyad Mahrez

A bit of a waste of money from City here, they just got greedy. They already had Sterling and Sané, Mahrez will be the odd man out.

Subbed after an hour against Arsenal and on the bench for the Huddersfield game, he probably wishes he was back at Leicester launching balls over the top to Jamie Vardy already.
