I was wondering does anyone else have a particular way of assigning their squad numbers? First choice goalie is always number 1, your main striker always gets number 9, etc.

I start off by giving players their preffered numbers as much as I can, then just give them the traditional numbers for their positions (Playmaker 10, winger 7, etc)

After a few seasons when I have a player who is now **** but was once amazing for me, I always give him the No.69 shirt (Mature, I know :p)

I enjoy using a classic numbering system, but if a player has a favorite number I try to let them have it.

I'm also a little more careful on handing out legendary shirt numbers (I.e. we had a club legend who wore 7, I'm not going to hand out the 7 shirt to some unproven 18-year-old).

I think I am very much old school when it comes to squad numbers. If a player has a preferred number then I will assign that to them where possible. I tend to assign my best starting 11 for the numbers of 1-11 and the same applies for the subs from 12-18. Apart from that I tend to keep the allocation of numbers to:

1. GK
2. RB
3. LB
4. CB/DMC
5. CB
6. CB/DMC
7. AMC/RW/ST
8. CM/AMC
9. ST
10. AMC/ST
11. AMC/LW/ST
12. Defender
13. Goalkeeper
14. Defender/Midfielder
15. Midfielder
16. Midfielder
17. Midfielder
18. Striker

Numbers above this tend to be randomly chosen just so all players have squad numbers lol

Haha I do the same thing with the randomness after I'm done assigning the numbers I want to. Sometimes I'll assign a real life number of one of my favorite players to a player in the game that I really like.

I don't always put that much thought into it and if people want some weird number, I'll give it to them but I usually do like the rest;

1. GK
2. RB
3. LB
4. CB
5. CB
6. DM
7. AMR/MR
8. MC
9. ST
10. AMC/ST
11. AML/ML

And then just continue, 12 RB, 13 LB, 14 CB etc. But I often give 13 to my super sub but the rest is usually the same. I usually don't hand out 1-11 right away to new players though - I usually let them earn those numbers.
