Okay so I need your help!

I’m getting myself a new pretty Collingwood jumper but I have no idea what number to go for. I don’t like big numbers like 34 or 38. I don’t like low numbers like 1-6.

I can’t get Medders because he’s like twenty-eight years old which means he won’t be at Magpie land for too long. I don’t now if I should get my beloved number nine incase they change Jack’s number! I would like to get Steele’s 22 but, 22 reminds me too much of Rhys Shaw and it’s too big a number for my petite size.

One last thing, I don’t want a defenders’ number, it just doesn’t feel right.

Please give me some advice on what number I should get and explain why.

    Hey Danni,

    Chris Judd is number 5 if that helps. :)

  2. Danielle says

    2- lol JB
    Nah if i was a Carlton supporter i’d get
    Duckie’s number 4.

  3. What about 12 or 8?

    Or maybe even 18?

    Dale Thomas’s number (13) might be good.

  4. Danielle says

    Comment three-
    8- Harry O, i’m not keen on a defender.
    12 + 18
    I’m not yet in love with our newbies enough.
    As for 13- i think its safe to say almost every female Collingwood supporter has 13 on her jumper and for that reason i won’t be one of them.

  5. Danni – Get number 22, but get it in the kids’ size ;-p

    Hey, Harry Taylor is running around with a too-small number 7 on his back! It’s the new trend.

  6. Danni, don’t diss defenders. (Hows that for alliteration?) If anything, you should get a defender, because they deserve more recognition than they get.

    What about 10 for Scott Pendlebury? Or is that not unique enough either?

  7. Steve Healy says

    who cares if 22 looks bad on you? Its not sidebottom’s fault that he wears 22

  8. Can’t you think of a defender who would have been a popular choice for kids’ jumpers? Look no further than the title of your plea. I’m sure there were Carlton kids who had the number 1 of the Son of Serge on their backs.

    I have always wanted to get the symbol for Pi put on the back of my Hawks jersey. Just a little bit nerdy, unique and very cool.

    Plus you’d be breaking the stereotype that Pies fans are unintelligent.

  10. “Pi” on the back of a “Pi”es jumper – brilliant work, Tim ;-p

  11. Danielle says

    lol Tim and Susie.
    i can’t do that, it would contradict my ‘barely passing’ maths grades!

  12. Plus, neither John McCarthy or Anthony Corrie are any good.

    I think Richmond should change Deledio’s number to that, I’d love the idea of Deledio putting in the extra .14 every match.

    Hey Danielle
    The number for you is contained in almost all your comments here on the “Nack”. Its gotta be 101. I even saw JTH use it last week so consider it sanctioned.

  14. Good morning Danielle. I got my first jumper in 1969 and by coincidence it was number 22. It was an East Perth jumper – my favourite player, and boyhood hero, was Derek Chadwick one of the great wingmen.
    So 22 is good.
    However you could go for one. Then if someone asked, “Who is number one?” you could say, “I am.”

  15. Danielle,

    its a no brainer. Number 10 (shortened version of 2010). I heard a Pies supporter say on Saturday that the 2010 flag is in the bag.

    Have a look at the numbers 32 and 43. They may seem a little obscure but some very, very good players have worn those for different clubs over the past 50 years.

    I look forward to your report on Friday night’s game. I sincerely hope that you get to see it live. Don’t miss it.

    Cheers, Phantom. (Go Cats)

  16. Danielle says

    thanks all for your thoughts.
    i have decided to wait and see when and for how long Jack Anthony signs his next contract for.
    So it’s gonna be either 22 or 9

    GO PIES!
