It’s that time of year when the new kit is launched and you need to get down to the Armoury to get your new Red and White (with a dash of an alien colour) shirt.
I’ve looked on Newsnow and watched the new signings clock in. and I’ve decided I want a Podolski shirt.
So before setting out I thought I had better check Arsenal.com to see what number he is and although we have seen him in an Arsenal kit he doesn’t seem to even exsist in the sites first team squad list.
So what would be the most suitable number for Lukas ? Perhaps 9 or 10, he will probably get Parks’ no 9 shirt it’s wasted on him and he will be off anyway, But Giroud hasn’t got a number either and he is the more natural centre forward so he would grab that
A shiver suddenly shoots down my spine, so Podolski should have the number 10!! What does that mean ??
Is the site sending out subliminal messages about RvP’s future??
Looking at the list perhaps the numbers that have been chosen for the players we already have is sending out secret hidden messages
Szczeny still holds onto No13 (Lloris to sign ??)
Wilshere our best midfielder has the No 19 on his back, surely the Mertesaker 4shirt would suit him better, (not fit yet?)
Diaby still holds the No2 yet our best left back still wears 28. Santos wears 11.
Does anyone know the person responsible for checking the suitability of choosing a number for a player because we would look a lot better if the first team got 1-11 and the squad players picked at the scraps. (nb: except 14 of course).
This needs to be sorted before the new kit launch otherwise it is either unfair on the supporters that purchase the kit or if Arsenal are going to refund if the numbers change like Bendtner did swapping the 25 to the 52 a couple of years ago it is a waste of time and money.
In all seriousness why haven’t either Podolski or Giroud been assigned numbers??
