Come in no.7 your time is up
I'm one of those people that thinks about stuff too much. I analyse, counter analyse and then analyse once more in case I've not read enough into it the first time. Normally this is a fault of mine, but sometimes I think I do it for the right reason's. One of those occasions is when the squad numbers
come out. I take great stock in the squad numbers and believe that the best players should be numbered 1-11, I'm a bit old fashioned like that.
So why is Chris Powell still no.3? What about the Herminator? Why is Graham Stuart still no.4? Apart from the fact we have sold most of our midfield. And please god, what an earth is Kishishev doing in the no.7 shirt? Now, when I think of the no.7, I think of Colin Powell, Robert Lee, Kevin Keegan, Kenny Daglish and even Scott Parker, who will probably be wearing no.84 on his back at Chelski this season. But Radostin Kishishev? Pleeeese.
Another anomoly is why Paul Rachbuka is no.13, nothing against the boy, just seems strange. I fully understand why Rommedahl has chosen his clearly favoured no.19, but I see a silver lining. No.16 is free and waiting, I can see it now - it's being held up by our record signing, he's standing by the tunnel, camera's are flashing and he's going get us a sackful of goals. James Beattie.
