As the other thread is now old news, a new thread to discuss the upcoming seasons squad numbers. 

Some of the first 11 being available for the first time in a while. 

It'll be interesting to see what numbers the new boys take. 

Kodjia will also have a new number, and I imagine he's hoping for number 22 if Gardner leaves.

I always pay special attention to numbers 1-11

So numbers 1,2,3,6,8,10 are all available (Elphick good as gone). Cant remember the last time so many numbers 1-11 were free. 

Like to see Kodjia take the #10

Edit: just realised Taylor took the #3 in January

My guess

1. None of them will wear it this season

2. James Bree

3. Neil Taylor

6. Glenn Whelan 

8. New signing (one can dream!)

10. Jonathon Kodjia

You'd think at this late stage the numbers would have been released. I went ahead last night and preordered both the home and away shirts with names and numbers on the to get the free printing. Hopefully they don't change!

Out of interest what players/numbers did you go for?

Would love to see Grealish get #10.

I think you should wear a shirt number corresponding to your position - even above 1-11.

For example:

31 - goalie

12 - right-back

25 - centre back

33 - left back

47 - right wing

58 - centre mid

61 - left wing

70 - number 10

89 - striker

etc

Lansbury wearing #5 disgusts me

I'm confident now that everyone has kept their numbers from last year. I imagine next year will see a huge switch around. 

I would say the changes will be:

1 - Johnstone

2 - Elmohamady

6 - Samba

8 - Whelan

22 - Kodjia

26 - Terry

 

From the previous thread

I read an article about how certain players wanted to swap their shirt numbers for their preferred choice. 

The numbers I read players wanted were

Lansbury - 10 (free) [leaving 5 free for Chester]

Jedinak - 15 (free)

Kodjia - 22 (Gardner)

Hourihane and Bjarnason both wore 8 at previous clubs. 

Samba - 4 (Richards)

Any official word when the numbers will be released? 

Want to buy a Kodjia top for my lad before we go on holiday

Nope I waited to get him on the back of one of mine but it wasn't announced in time and I didn't wanna miss out on that Sports Direct free printing deal!

Squad list 2017/18: Find out Kodjia, Whelan, Grealish, Chester numbers

AUGUST 2, 2017

   

James Chester will wear the No.5 shirt as he follows in the footsteps of the likes of Paul McGrath, Ugo Ehiogu, Martin Laursen and Richard Dunne.

Chester has switched from No.12 to No.5 for the coming campaign, which also sees fellow centre-half Chris Samba take the No.4 shirt.

Jack Grealish will don the No.10 top while Sam Johnstone will wear No.1.

John Terry continues his association with the No.26 top meaning that Jonathan Kodjia moves to No.22.

Glenn Whelan is our new No.6 while Ahmed Elmohamady is No.27.

Henri Lansbury moves from No.5 to No.8.

Check out the full list below.
