I’ve wanted to make this thread for a while to discuss which players have honored the famous Arsenal numbers we all love… and who flopped massively too.
So what do you think? Is still Viera our greatest #4? Is Theo giving the #14 the credit it deserves? Is Coquelin our greatest ever #34? (lol)
Here’s a usefull list:
It’s since 1993 and haven’t been updated yet to this season. Since there are no many Len’s or Bradymagic’s around here, just a couple of old schools here and there, how about making this since the Wenger era? Sure Charlie George is still one of the greatest ever but c’mon! not many of us had the chance to actually watch him play right? Besides, I have no idea which number he wore at Arsenal.
Special mention to Herbert Chapman:
Are we ok with our current #6? it looks like we have improved our #19 shirt situation. #27 has been an absolute disaster. How about our #9 curse? fun fact: our last two #9 share the same initials and name. From Xhamack to Chakrouan, I mean from Marouanit to Gramack? you get the point! and thank God Alexis took the #17 when he first joined and Nacho switched to #18 because that number has been absolutely not top top quality lately.
Some interesting numbers yet to be discussed.
Hope you like this threat, let’s do it!
