ESR or an Aouar type if we get that in the summer. ESR should request it in his contract negotiations.

Does that number not have a special place in your heart. after everything he did while wearing it?

No, I just love Thierry Henry. The number doesn't really mean anything to me tbh, but I get it means a lot to other people even the footballer.

It just seem arbitrary to me, something that means as much as you make it mean to you. Does that make sense?

Yeah that’s a good point. Arsenal fans only care about the number 14 because Henry wore it.

If he was wearing 99 they’d care about that one instead.

Can players already registered actually get the shirt during the Jan window?

You all know it's going to Willian, don't know why we keep pretending it isn't.

That just sounds like a fantasy tbh, it's just a shirt number doesn't really mean anything. I think it's just another things fans like to get up in arms about.
Not sure about that. A lot of players at Utd have spoken about the number 7 shirt and how they hope to emulate Cantona who is the standard bearer. RvP, Wilshere and Özil all wanted the number 10 because of what it represents here thanks to Bergkamp. Legacy and history means more to some players than we think.

if you think of it, somehow that number 10 never did özil very well. he kinda was best at real with the 23 iirc, best at germany with the 8 and best with us with the 11.

Partey should get his fav 5

Yeah, it was mainly a quip that giving it to any other player right now would have some controversy attached to it due to those not getting it feeling they deserved it more and/or fans thinking it was not deserved for that player based on history of that number for us. Partey should get a number more suited to him maybe this summer, and the #10 should be kept open until this summer also (open for ESR if he continues to prove himself).

Who’s the second best 10 in our history? After Özil.

You answered your own question I think, Özil is a comfortably 2nd place.

I don't know how iconic your no. 10 but our no 7 is very iconic and it wasn't just based on one player but based on 5 players, Best, Bryan Robson, Cantona, Beckham, Ronaldo.

I’m hoping we’ve learned our lesson by giving it to Wilshere after one season.
This!

I think we even gave it to Saka too soon, fortunately he's grown into it this season but that usually isn't the case. Giving ESR the no10 is the kind of small-time thing we'd do. I'm kind of tempted to bet on it.
