Irons number changes drop a clue

|

Four Hammers have all decided to change their shirt numbers ahead of the new campaign.

What`s in a number?

A fair bit apparently….

It now appears that Lucas Paqueta ,Gianluca Scamacca , Alphonse Areola and Maxwel Cornet have all decided to change their shirt numbers ahead of the new campaign.

Now, it may not seem much in the face of it, but perhaps it is a sending a message that Scamacca is not going anywhere, as why would he go to the bother of changing his squad number?

One of our heroes in Prague, Lucas Paqueta  wore the No11 all last season and will now inherit the number 10 shirt, previously worn by the now departed Manuel Lanzini.

The frustrating but nevertheless talented Scamacca, has opted to swap his number 7 shirt for the now vacant number 11.

Other changes at the London Stadium sees goalkeeper Areola swap No13 for No23.

And not to be left out, Maxwel Cornet has chosen to be a No17 and not No14. Which may be an omen as that used to be Jared Bowen`s number before he moved to his current No 20 shirt.

The number 7 is now vacant and perhaps when we sign our first Rice replacement it could be his.
