Still, it could be worse. I wonder how many Sunderland fans regret their Adam Johnson shirt? :supergrin:

Not the name, but the wrong number...

My Dad bought me a Dyer shirt but didnt want to pay the extra money for two digits, so I had Dyer with 9 on the back when his squad number was 10, he only took me to football because I wanted to go so he didnt know the difference.

I have two that need a mention. The fist is Torghelle 35. Got it the summer after we had been relegated. I really believed that he would kill it on the championship, we got rid of him four days after I had trekked to selhurst on a no game day to get it printed! I also went through a run of getting random names on the back of other people i like, because I generally seemed to jinx players I got printed and even myself one season! I have a shirt with Benoit 20 on the back because he won the world title at wrestlemania 20 and had been in the business twenty years. He then killed his family......

Special mention, I got onto full kit wankers when I had Schwarzennegger 38!! Proud of that top, it was our promotion season under Holloway. I wasn't even wearing a full kit!
