I would have preferred Manucho to get the no 20 shirt and Rafael and Fabio to get No's 25 and 26, but never mind.

But I think its completely disgraceful that Dong's number has gone to Fabio and he now doesn't have a number! What is going on? :rolleyes: ;) :p

No major changes of not though, and the fact that Welbeck has got No 19, Fabio 20 and Rafael 21 looks promising for the season ahead.

Manucho, 26'

Many United fans have been asking about the Angolan International Manucho, and when he would pull on the red shirt of United, well today it's been announced that he will wear the No.26 jersey when he finally gains a work permit to further his career with the English and European champions.

United's squad numbers for the 2008/09 campaign have been registered with the Premier League and there are some notable inclusions, especially for the younger members of the Reds' playing staff.

Brazilian twins Fabio and Rafael have been handed the number 20 and 21 shirts respectively, while young strikers Danny Welbeck and Federico Macheda will wear no.19 and no.41 if and when they are used this term.

1.Van der Sar, 2.Neville, 3.Evra, 4.Hargreaves, 5.Ferdinand, 6.Brown, 7.Ronaldo, 8.Anderson, 9.Saha, 10.Rooney, 11.Giggs, 12.Foster, 13.Park, 15.Vidic, 16.Carrick, 17.Nani, 18.Scholes, 19.Welbeck, 20.Fabio, 21.Rafael, 22.O'Shea, 23.Evans, 24.Fletcher, 26.Manucho, 27.Silvestre, 28.Gibson, 29.Kuszczak, 31.Campbell, 32.Tevez, 33.Hewson, 34.Possebon, 35.Cleverley, 36.Gray, 37.Cathcart, 38.Zieler, 39.Chester, 40.Amos, 41.Macheda


We just now have to wait and see if and when he gets his work permit.

There is already a thread for squad numbers. I expect this will be merged.

Does anyone know if we have applied for a wp yet?

Appologies, i didn't know.

Fergie said before the community Sheild that their still working on it, but it doesnt look the most straight forward thing does it, if it was do-able they surely would have done it sooner wouldnt they.

Guaranteed we'll be rejected a permit and we'll need to take it to an appeal :rolleyes:
