Hoping Hennessey gets 13 so our 3 keepers wear 1, 12* and 13.

*Although I've always thought 12 for a keeper is a bit too Italian, but happy enough for 3rd choice

Neco appears to be 7, based on todays numbers.
Currently confusion over 19, which might be Niakhaté or Silva, BJ might have moved to 11, and two different players have worn both 42 and 46.

Glad Henderson is confirmed as 13. Happy to see Brennan taking 11. Less keen on Williams wearing 7 but not quite as bad as when Perch had it. Do we reckon Richards or Toffolo will take 5? So that will only leave 10 free of the 1-11 numbers. O'Brien to take it, or saving it for someone else?

I don’t remember Perch having 7, must have erased it from memory.
I reckon 5 could actually end up not being taken.

Perchy wore 7 quite often, because he was ostensibly a central midfield player.

Even when he played at Full back.

I thought he was a centre-back when he broke into the team, then we decided he was too small and weedy to play there for the first team (and we were well stocked there) so he just got shifted to midfield and full-back.

He was a centre back at youth levels, but when he made the first team, he was most often played as a defensive midfielder, hence the #7.

He did however often admirably fill in at Full Back.

He had it the season we went up from League One. To be fair, he did play midfield sometimes but still it annoyed me.

I would think 5 will get taken by someone, I just hope it's a defender even if it's not a centre-back.

Yeah he was never getting in a centre-back with Morgan, Wilson, Breckin and Chambers as competition. He was a bit like John Thompson, ended up getting moved everywhere because he'd put a shift in.

Updated the OP.
Toffolo & O’Brien added to 'TBC'

I've also added Aguilera as a '-' as he probably won't get a squad number any time soon.

Assigned 15 to Toffolo based on tonight’s team sheet.
Brennan's wearing 11 again. Permanent change we think?

Assuming he signs - which is the mother of all assumptions - then surely Lingard takes 10. 5 still vacant though. Does O'Brien fancy himself as Zidane? If not, what's the next highest number free? 20? 23 if Lolley's had his number taken off him?

My sources tell me Lingard had taken 10, BJ will definitely be 11 and Niakhaté will be 19. Richards will be 27.
O’Brien hasn’t chosen yet and Silva hasn’t selected a new number.
