Leeds and Ipswich fans on Twitter have been lauding the signings of Brentford pair Stuart Dallas and Jonathan Douglas.
Northern Ireland midfielder Dallas, 24, has signed a three-year deal with Leeds, while Douglas, 33, moved to Ipswich on a 12-month contract.
Many Leeds supporters compared Dallas to former player Robert Snodgrass, now at Hull.
Happy with the Dallas signing. Hope he has as much influence as the likes of Snodgrass did. #lufc

Ipswich fans seemed equally pleased with the acquisition of Douglas, who could end up coming back to haunt Brentford when the two sides meet in the Championship on Saturday.
Douglas scored 8 last season, our midfield put together scored 11 (if my memory serves me right!) he’s exactly what we needed! #itfc

I would love to see a Douglas last minute goal and to win the game on Saturday! That would be sweet #itfc

Many Bees fans were disappointed to see the pair leave but others felt it a sign of the strength of the new-look squad that they could afford to allow Dallas and Douglas to depart.

Our bench is looking awfully empty now that Dallas and Dougie have gone. They’ll walk straight into the Leeds and Ipswich sides. Says alot — Daniel Vine (@VineyBee) August 4, 2015
