Seriously, tradition with squad numbers and what players/positions get what numbers went out years ago. Wakey wakey.

No it didn't.

 

Take a look at football squads from all other 92 clubs in the Football League -

 

100% will have a goalkeeper as number 1 - why?

 

95% will have a right-back as number 2 - why?

 

95% will have a left-back as number 3 - why?

 

90% of players with a number from 1-11 will have that number based on what position they play on the field - because of TRADITION.

 

How many other clubs have a goalkeeper as number 2?

 

Wakey wakey.

For all of you saying its not an issue, think back to 1993.....David Hirst wore the No.5 shirt in the FA Cup final and we lost. The reason we lost was nothing to do with chocolate wrists in the net and purely down to Hirsty wearing number 5

 

Unless Fletcher is playing standing on his head (which admittedly will be an improvement on last years number 9) then we are doomed!

They really should just bring back 1-11 and if you got one them shirts you should count yourself lucky.

 

That said, I was attached to number 9, that is the number I wore all my playing days.

 

This will matter less with time, kids now chose a number based on their favourite player at the time, this changes yearly so no biggy, they won't get attached.

Deary me.

 

Pointless arguing with you in this. You stick with your outdated and old traditions.

I can understand a player maybe being unhappy with a number but a fan? 

 

If if your a fan unhappy about a number, someone's else's number, you need to get out more. There's a lot more things to get unhappy about.

The numbers of the shirts doesn't bother me one bit really, it's quite funny and something to talk about for once as squad numbers are usually announced with minimal fuss.

 

BUT if it's causing a bit of upset amongst players then that isn't ideal, if true there have been arguments over it, hence the delay in announcing the numbers, then it's an issue that didn't need to be created by giving random numbers.

 

Its clearly superstition with Chansiri though.

I remember how angry I was when I joined the RAF and wasn't allowed to pick my own Service Number.

Ditto for me in the Army...funny how I still remember it 48 years later...can't really say it has brought me bad luck either   lol

Does tradition matter? Yes.

But money trumps tradition,

 

Also people won't give a flip unless we are losing games.

 

Same with the ticket prices.

That garbage home strip.

The remove of the owl on the kop.

Everything stamped in chansiri

 

Nobody gives a monkey's if we are winning. Nobody.

 

Welcome to modern football.
