Only a week after Tomas Rosicky & Francesc Fabregas got their new numbers, Kolo Toure has at last been issued with a proper defenders number.

Since joinh Arsenal in 2002, Kolo Toure has worn the unorthadox number 28 shirt, but in this period of change he has now been given a real defenders number, the number 5.

Toure has been a rock for us over the past few years, and now Sol Campbell has departed he will become the leader of the defence (although in honesty, he’s been leading it for a while now anyway)

  • it’ll look wierd, him and cesc with these new numbers… legendary club numbers to be given to the future legends of the club… good stuff…

  • lol, just to be awkward, if i was a 5 star defender like toure, which i ill never ever be lol, i’d want number 28 for some reason…

  • It is good that they have decided to give him a proper squad number now, 28 looked like a back up players number, what numbers are Cesc and rosicky can someone please tell me cheers

  • YES FINALLY toure has got the number he deserves and i am very happy for him because he is one player that is unbelievably consistent ! and works so hard for arsenal

  • Great to see someone deserving take over Martin’s vacated number. TH14 is still odd to me, but it’s too late to change now. Will be missing not having no. 10 on the pitch.

  • thats good to see he has been given one of our legends shirt number, but even if he wore 28 i wouldn’t care. he’s a top quality player and it doesn’t matter wat number he is… Gooners 4 da champions league and possibly premiership, fa cup & carling cup. (quadroople lol). Well lets hope so ne way… Arsenal 4 Ever

  • Number 5 is special. The memories. In fact my favorite number 5 was Nayim, who smacked home that beauty from 50 yards out. Can still see Seaman flappng like a seagull… . It’s also indicates where Arsen’ole will finish this year. Cheers!

  • do you really care about numbers! i couldnt care a less what number they have on their shirt, it doesnt make them any better!

  • i dont no about the “quadroople” think most of us wanna see the title back where it belongs! lets be honest aslong as we finish aboce chelski and the dirty spurs i will be more than happy!

  • That’s great news im glad to hear that, he deserves that no5 shirt more than anyone.Fabregas no4, Rosicky no7 but who will take the no10?

  • I like five on Toure. It equals the amount of European trophies won by norf London’s two great rivals. 3-2 to the Tottenham.
