Should we retire Number 42 when Yaya leaves?

    I mentioned in the David Silva thread that while we have not traditionally retired shirt numbers, because teams used the 1-11, in an era of squad numbers, is it time to identify and recognize the real game changers and giants of an era.

    As such, Yaya has been instrumental in the growth of Brand City and the new era of success we have enjoyed, and hope to enjoy long into the future.

    So, has the Number 42 become “his”? Will it always be synonymous with Yaya?

    I think that is a good idea. We won't get another Yaya and we won't get another Silva, and anyone attempting to purloin their shirts should be prevented.

    We would run out of two digit numbers quite quickly if we started doing that.

    Nah, If you retired every shirt of a ‘Legend’ you’d run out of numbers.
    The FOE shirt is the only one.
