Experience has proven, over the years, that you can gauge just how good a signing you’ve made by the reactions coming from the supporters of the club the player has just left.
Nowadays, of course, getting those reactions is so much easier with the plethora of social media network sites available to us.
Looking at our latest signing, the central defender Alfie Mawson, it would appear from the reaction of the Swansea City support that Fulham have picked up a real diamond of a player.
Here are selection of tweets we stumbled upon;
Swans fan here, got a good player there in Alfie. Always gives 100% and sure he will do well for you.

Gutted to lose him, but Fulham have a great player who deserves to play at the highest level.

Deserves to be back in the prem????

Great signing, be in the England team in the next euros I think, or at least on the verge, Fulham fans should be excited

But, there are some out there who are of the opinion that Mawson is using Fulham as a stepping stone:
Very good signing. Like Maguire could sign for a bigger club but opting to get minutes in mid-lower level before making his big move

Good signing . he will be off to City next season though

Surely not, once he realises Fulham are an ambitious club with plans he’ll, like us, become hooked on the place.
But, naturally, there are some who just can’t accept that he’s moved on for career reasons:
Good another mercenary on his way….
