Shirt Names Missing!?!

 19 Comments: First  |  Last

Why has Rodwell's name been removed from the squad for names on shirts?

If you take a look at the online Everton Shop and go to try and order mens home strip tops. The drop down box of names to put on shirts includes ALL first team squad players BUT Rodwell, Yak and Yobo's names are missing???

Interesting or just an error?

He is probably changing squad number.

Just noticed that you can no longer purchase a shirt with Rodwell on the back. This has also been tweeted by Ashley Young so is this the biggest hint yet that he will be the one to fund our summer transfers?

He's changing his number, he's having Yobo's 4.

Matteo, then why don't they rectify it, surely what number he is going to have is not too big an issue to solve?

He is being sold, it's the same reason why Rooney wasn't in the kit/training gear brochures when he went pre season. That and being an ugly fecker

Listening to Rodwell recently he certainly doesn't sound like he is about to leave.

Ian #7,

he didn't say "once a blue, always a blue" did he?

If he's not changing numbers to 4 and if it's not just a mistake from a work experience kid, it might explain the lack of transfers. We're waiting for money from a sale of Rodders.

Also, is the sky money still paid towards the end of august? If it is, why can't we get an advance from a bank or at least one of our multi-millionaire owners and get a player in early?

At the new shirt signing at the Everton 2 store Cahill's minders said he was still choosing a new number, I've said this on a number of other articles.

I walked past a local adidas store and they had the advert with Rodwell appearing. I was stopped in my tracked and mouthed "Hey it's Rodders!"

Fucking hell Everton don't sell the lad.

Rodwell was wearing number 4 at the Philadelphia game tonight. Changing numbers sounds about right.

It's OK, I've found his name.

He's on United's squad list.

It could be that they had planned to change his squad number to 4, but then Yobo's sale fell through. If Yobo ends up staying they won't want to completly alienate him by giving him a 20 or 30 something squad number after all his years of service.

Yobo 4
Barkley 20
Yakubu 22
