When a major signing happens in football it's common practice to get the initial reaction and analysis from the experts who do that type of thing for a living. Sometimes the most genuine and honest reaction you will find is from social media. Twitter is particularly great for big moments such as players signings or departures.
Tottenham have completed the signing of Son Heung-Min from Bayer Leverkusen today. So naturally, we took to Twitter to see what the reaction to the signing looked like. Here are some of the best (and most disturbing) tweets we found:
Of course we start out with some puns
It was almost a great tweet. Finish it off in the comments and become a hero.
Spurs sign Son for £22m. How much is Father and Mother worth?— Temil0luwa (@Temphiz) August 28, 2015
Tweeting "AHHHHH YA BEAUTY, WHAT A HIT SON, WHAT A HIT" every time Son scores for us.— Simply Spursy (@Simply_Spurs) August 28, 2015
For all the Son puns, it's a shame that Sam Allardyce isn't Spurs manager. He'd be "the Son of Sam".— Jonas Giæver (@CheGiaevara) August 28, 2015
From puns to whatever the hell this is
Thanks for the nightmares, Twitter! Here's one for the practical (and thrifty) Spurs fan
The club even created an official hashtag for the signing. #HereComesTheSon
Big fan of Son at Leverkusen, always creates chances. Spurs with Eriksen & Son now. Hope he flops but doubt. pic.twitter.com/caatstF1ic— Niko (@Nikomarvel) August 28, 2015
Great to see Spurs investing in pace. Very excited about seeing Son in action - direct, quick, 2-footed and scores goals! #HereComesTheSon— Richard Joyce (@R_J_Joyce) August 28, 2015
#HereComesTheSon and for god's sake maybe some freaking pace— Mac (@KatyMaccc) August 28, 2015
Our new signing is just puntastic! #HereComesTheSon— Lily White (@LilyWhite_Lady) August 28, 2015
I think the question everyone has on their mind now is: Will the Son come out tomorrow? (I'll be here all week!)
