Potential New Squad Numbers

Judging by the training photos posted on Instagram, it looks like some players may have new numbers.

Of the players shown Lines has #14 (previously unassigned), List has #7 (previously Carter) and Osborne has #11 (previously Newton). I'm assuming that means that one of the new CMs is taking Osborne's #8. Marshall seems to be keeping #24 and Read seems to be keeping #19. I'm surprised List is taking #7 instead of #10. Unless he's getting shifted back out to right wing.

Might be nothing but thought it was interesting.

I like it when numbers suggest where the player will play. Rui Patricio being number 11 at Wolves lives in my head rent free.

Squad numbers being all over the place drives me mad. It's so stupid but it's just one of those irrational annoyances.

Part of me likes when it used to be 1-11 each week with no squad numbers, and with the numbers corresponding to certain positions. 2 & 3 full backs, 4 & 5 (or 5 & 6) centre backs, 7 & 11 wingers, 6 (or 4) defensive mid, 8 attacking mid, 10 for your playmaker or second striker, and 9 for your centre forward.

In Canada (and I assume it's the same in the US) the background of player numbers and which numbers are typically worn for each position seemingly never got taught/introduced. My team has a striker wearing no.2, a central midfielder wearing no.11, a central midfielder wearing no.5 and a winger wearing no.6. My last team had a left back wearing no.10, a winger wearing no.3 and a centre back wearing no.9. And no-one understood why it was weird.

List wants to be like Ronaldo so will be happy with the 7.

He can now have EL7 on everything.
