So, saw proper numbers been worn in a friendly mentioned in another thread earlier and thought has the club announced its list for the coming season or not. A quick glance at the OS just shows last season's numbers.

Anyone got any info regarding this?

That's what I've worked out so far, with CAPS players being ones which I haven't seen with the number, so placed with the number they wore last season

Skarroki, I'm sure you're aware of this and it's a typo but it's Lyden not Lynden, thanks for posting though, your posts are always well thought out and insightful

Oops! Corrected it. And thank you, kind words.

A random question on this subject, but do players sometimes have it written into their contract that they must have a certain squad number?  

I know it is unlikely that the above are already fixed, but looking at that list for example, Elphick (as potential club captain) should surely have 4,5, or 6. (was 5 for Bournemouth I think). It would be a statement of intent by the club to give Lescott/Richards/Agbonlahors number to someone else. I think they did the same with the bomb squad a few years ago.

Players can ask for a specific number at the club when signing, but I think most players will request it but not make a huge issue with what number they wear. 

As an example, I would imagine Ibrahimovic at Utd had it agreed he'd be wearing the 9 shirt, because it would have something to do with his image rights, the same as Beckham always getting the number 23, I think they took the 23 shirt off an academy player midseason at LA Galaxy because Beckham wanted his number to fit the brand.

I have a weird obsession with squad numbers, I don't know why.

I hate it when they don't make sense, a number 3 upfront, number 7 in goal, number 9 centre back. *shudders*

For example.....

And that's not the worst one

No one else picked up on Hepburn-Murphy wearing 20? Where is Adama? Is he taking the coveted number 10 or are we saving it for our marquee striker signing next week?

I think it's great news that he has no.20 but it is worth remembering that Delfouneso had no.14 when he was Hepburn-Murphy's age. It doesn't really mean much, they are completely different types of players, I think that Delfouneso had better technique than Hepburn-Murphy at the same age but I have the opinion that Hepburn-Murphy has a better attitude/ mentality than Delfouneso

Yeah, but just saying he was missed out on @skarrokis post earlier.

At the Middlesbrough game Gollini was 1, Elphick was 14, Grealish was 30, Tshibola was 10, Gestede was 12, Cissokho was 29. Other than that I think the rest of the squad numbers were unchanged from last season. 

As of today we don't have a 6 or an 8. I'm assuming if it goes through McCormack would take 8, a new midfielder may take 6.
