What's wrong with it?

 

The 1974 Holland World Cup squad had random numbers... Their goalkeeper wore number 8.

 

They weren't an half bad footballing side either.

Why shouldn't a number 2 goalkeeper have the number 2 shirt?

 

I like it.

He was number 8 because Cruyff was 14

For those going "who cares!?!?!" - I don't think people care really that much. It's more to do with being confused than outraged. It's just odd. It's not bad, it's just weird. 

I actually do think people care about this. Especially when I see stuff about comparisons with Vincent tan for instance. He's nothing like Vincent tan for god sake. Is he spending money? Yes .

Has he changed our strip to red? No. Let's talk about important stuff Yeah rather than being suicidal about chuffing squad numbers on players' backs.

The only really surprising thing here is that Chansiri didn't give himself and each of his kids a squad number too.

I've been a bit cynical when people have said that the merchandising side of things has taken a back seat while we sort the important things out.

 

But I've now come to realise that: changing the badge, redesigning the kit, sorting out the players numbers, placing a flag over the old owl until it could be removed and other such things should always take priority.

 

These things don't sort themselves you know!

Be strange going in to a season without the number 9 & 10 shirts being allocated. Gets me excited more attacking players may come in. Then again like has been said those squad numbers mean jack poo

I'm not outraged, I'm just utterly bemused by it.

From 12 onwards I couldn't care less, but from 1-11 there's a tradition in England that the numbers go to players in a certain position.

It won't kill me to see a goalkeeper wearing number 2, or a striker wearing 6, but it's just odd.

And it's a shame that tradition is yet again just being completely thrown out of the window.

Certain numbers might be lucky in Thailand, but we're not in Thailand.

Just wait till we sign Aiden Flint and give him the No 9 shirt.

That was batshit crazy too - how they played on the field is irrelevant.
