  1. Hooper is a little bit of an interesting one. I heard he wanted 10, but it was taken by Marc Antoine Fortune at the time. Fortune left that same window and 10 was assigned to Anthony Stokes when he signed a few days later. If Hooper had signed just a few weeks later, would he have taken 10.

    Celtic wise, you’ve had Victor Wanyama, then Charley Musonda and Fraser Forster all take 67 to honour the Lisbon Lions as well

    1. I like how Kieran Tierney wore 63 at Celtic, which would foreshadow his numbers for Scotland and Arsenal respectively!
