What Squad number would you want if all were available?

Recommended Posts

As the squad numbers have been released, I was wondering what numbers if all were available and you were lucky to have a grinning Bauser thrusting a contract at you, what you would choose. Would it be a traditional number 1-11 and be dependent on the position you played or would you want a more personalised number that meant something to you.

Id want number 8, always liked the number but as and older bloke and a defender was always stuck with 2-4. Lol

Always number 2 for me. Always been a rb, always like the number.

Worn a few during my (terrible) football career. Played as a winger when I was younger but was most successful wearing #4 weirdly. Would probably choose 11 or 14 though

I've gone through a few different ones over the years on my shirt, I only avoided a number on my home shirt last year because I loved the shirt too much on its own. I like 4, 7, 8 and 10. Holding midfielder or catalyst attacking midfielder.

I was always 8. Played as a hard tackling (aka dirty), box to box midfielder. But that was in the 90s when every formation was 4-4-2.

I've had about 8 different number shirts and played in every position including goalkeeper during a crisis, the less said about the scoreline the better

My favourite shirt I had was number 10 for my school team and sunday league team but I'd probably choose 22 given the choice

Played LB (3) at a very low standard but later on always wore 16 as everyone grabbed the 1-11 numbers thinking they'd start

3, was a left back when I was younger and moved to Centre Back when my puberty caught up with everyone else's! Kept my lucky number though.

I always had a weird obsession with squad numbers and feel the lack of respect for them should be a punishable offence.

Cant tell you how annoyed I was when Ince was no.9 for us. Under no circumstances should anyone but a striker be a no.9.

Oh and seeing the right back Steve Finnan wear no.3 for Liverpool back in the day gave me a headache too. I mean either learn to use your left foot if you want that number or just respect the tradition and take any number after no. 11 if no.2 not available.

Dont know why i get so passionate about this topic but it is an issue that is ruining our beautiful game and authorities need to clamp down on it

Sorry. Rant over. As you were.

I agree TLF it always annoys me too. Our own perfect example is Randolph should wear number 1. He even wears 23 when he plays for Ireland 🤣

Steven Fletcher being number 6 upfront for Sheffield Wednesday a couple years ago must have given you an aneurysm. 

Or what about Rui Patricio in goal at Wolves, I think he was 11, right? (although admittedly for a nice reason).

    • I fully agree with CT on this, that performance tonight was absolutely turgid and nothing like what Woodgate has said he wants his teams to play like. I'm personally of the opinion that I don't really care about performance aslong as we win, but we were getting results under Pulis mostly and played much better than what I seen tonight for the most part. Confirmation Bias is definitely effecting peoples positivity on Pulis football vs Woodgate football. I have absolutely no doubt we would have had more points on the board so far and been through in the cup if TP was still in charge, but as has been said, Woodgate might just need time, but if anybody can sit and say what we produced tonight was better than 'Pulisball' they aren't being subjective at all and are purely basing it on a dislike for Pulis. FWIW I thought it was time for Pulis to go so this isn't me defending TP, but what we're seeing isnt much different to last year. 
    • Like I said in my other post, people hated Pulis for far more than that. I don't think all of it was actually justified, certainly not to begin with and certainly not all the time. Surely this situation proves that more than anything, where people can see a similar thing from a different manager and feel quite significantly different about it. There was that undertone to his tenure that existed far beyond what people saw at the Riverside and it bled into the atmosphere within the Stadium too, I imagine. I think at times some hated him more for the reputation of his football than they actually hated his football to begin with, despite claiming that it was entirely the latter and I find that quite bizarre.
    • People kicked off about my post not the other way around.  I was just confused about certain things as I often am on here 🙂
    • We were able to beat what was in front of us last season as well.  I suppose I am waiting to see more and I didn't see anything tonight even though we won.  Like I say, the performance is the performance whoever is in charge but maybe that's a flawed way of looking at it, I don't know.
    • Jesus *** christ CT, calm down.
