    Squad numbers

    Anyone know what our squad numbers for the season? I heard that all teams this season have to have them and most other teams seem to have them this year.

    We've never had them before*, so unless they're compulsory, I doubt we will.

    Just to pre-empt Pineapple Stu, we know you hate them and why; nobody cares.

    *Except for Tony Mac, but he was tall enough that we probably only had one jersey that fit him. Arms like tree-trunks. Could move twenty leagues with a stride. We're retiring the number 6 jersey, right?

    Squad numbers are the tool of the devil.

    Damn, John83 pre-empted me...

    In a more serious reply, I can't see it happening. The press release photos taken this week for the season launch show Billy, Timmy and Finny in the dressing room with jerseys marked 2 to 6. I also can't see O'Neill's having anything ready for tomorrow when it normally takes them six months to get 1 to 11 right. If we had squad numbers, we'd have seen them in the friendlies, I'd say.

    the lads got their gear for the season earlier in the week on a numbers basis. not sure if the training gear number matches the squad number but
    it's as good a guess as any!!!

    Yes number six has been retired to be replaced with number 9 worn upside down
