What the Ipswich Town Squad numbers could tell us

In a move that will likely mean misery for parents wallets up and down Suffolk, Ipswich Town F.C today announced squad numbers for the forthcoming, (we just don't know when ) 2020/21 season.


Changes


Noticeable changes to have happened are;


Woolfenden will next year wear the number 6 shirt having last season been number 28.


Donacien will next season wear number 12 having worn number 2 this season...not that you'd have known it.

What the squad numbers could tell us


Ok, so hands up, who here remembers when the announcement of squad numbers used to mean something? When the very graphic of seeing your favourite player in a number between 1-11 meant they were seen as a 'starter'. Getting you all excited for the season.


Ok, maybe I am showing my age somewhat but these days squad numbers generally tend to not mean anything. However, Ipswich Town's squad numbers and how they have been assigned could give us some clues as to what may happen in regards to possible transfers in.


The number 2 and 3 shirts are vacant, with Kane Vincent-Young keeping 24 and Donacien moving to 12.


While I fully expect K.V.Y to keep his position at right-back when fully fit, following an explosive first season, a possible left-sided full-back and central defender could be on Lambert's radar.


Especially if the Scotsman wants to stick with a 3 at the back-formation.
