Late yesterday, here at Vital Luton Town, we reported on the confirmation that Matt Macey had become the third Luton signing of the summer transfer window.
Our article – and-macey-makes-it-three – only contained the bare bones of the deal but it appears there has been mixed reaction, on social media to this latest signing.
As you’d expect, the Luton support have been very supportive of the deal, as the following comments show:
An excellent addition to the goalkeeper ranks. I suspect we may see one more…

It’s decent, some fans won’t be happy but trust the recruitment team 100%

Trust the recruitment. Likely improved massively from 5 years ago, could be crucial for us in years to come

Bur north of the border it is a very different reaction, with the Hibernian support suggesting the Hatters have made an error in their dealings:
100k for him, additional fees and a sell on clause, ur clubs hierarchy is horrendous 😂😂😂

Luton fans. I can only give you sympathy and good luck 😉

He's run of the mill. Won't be missed with us signing Marshall. Still young. Would worry if he's your number 1 though.

Now, normally, the comments left by supporters of a player’s team are congratulatory, quite why the Hibs support seem so anti baffles me.
Sat here, in the editorial chair, my view is that Macey should be given our support and our backing as he settles into an environment he’s sampled before but one that has changed so very much since he was last with us, my judgement will be reserved until he’s played a dozen or so games for us.
