'Love him already' - How social media reacted as Caltex Socceroos made deadline day moves

There’s nothing like a deadline day signing to get football fans excited for a new season. That’s certainly how Brighton and Sheffield Wednesday supporters reacted with news of them snaring Caltex Socceroos stars Aaron Mooy and Massimo Luongo.

The 28-year-old playmaker, Mooy, switched to the AMEX Stadium from relegated Huddersfield Town on a one-year loan deal, the Seagulls announced on Friday.

Before the grand reveal, Albion posted a teaser of a classic Hollywood moment…

This Seagulls supporter’s The Office GIF suggested he was hyperventilating.

And the news was soon confirmed…

International, and now also club, teammate Maty Ryan was sharing the love…

And followers of the South Coast club were clearly getting on board.

Those reactions were pretty calm compared to some. The Brighton faithful clearly have a strong GIF game…

Perhaps to top them all. This Brighton fan clearly felt it was an impressive grab by the Seagulls.

Luongo thrills Wednesday fans

On the same day, Mooy’s Caltex Socceroos midfield partner Luongo moved across the Championship, from Queens Park Rangers to Sheffield Wednesday.

Owls supporters found out in this classic gamer reveal video:

His squad number was confirmed....

And his new supporters were given a message from their new midfielder.

Some QPR fans were taking the news better than others…

Like the Brighton crowd with the Mooy announcement, Wednesday fans were excitable.…

And, maybe the best post of them all….
