1. Henry (if Hogan wants it, Henry to 11)
9. Acres
13. Aish
22. Pick 7
26. Pick 10 (should be Dardy but seems unlikely)
31. Pick 58
40. Rookie (Butters?)
43. Rookie
Would suggest Switta and Banners may be the two most likely to change numbers (given Cox/Ryan/Duman are attached at the hip)

Can we reference 11 as Headland or Kickett instead of TK? I'd even be satisfied with it being Sheridans number rather then a reference to the mercenary.

You can stick your 29s and your 32s up your bum.

The only 2 numbers we should be zealous about guarding the legacy of are 26 and 11.

11 - the tracks of my tears - should always be given to a heart-and-soul indigenous player. Dale give it to Dessie and it should have been given to Sonny. We stuffed that up and should never make that mistake again.

26 - like jabbing a needle straight in your eye, the speed at which this number evokes Cliveitudinality is scary. You see it and you instantly feel the Cliveness. You catch a glimpse out the corner of your eye and the Keplervesence just leaps out at you. It's unadulterated freakshow in a single number. Numerical LSD. To this day the single weirdest thing that has happened at our football club, pretty much the world's richest resource of weird things, is that Dardy McCrafty did not already have the number 26 tattooed on his back.

Get Henry in 11. Get Dardy in 26.

That's your basic gameplan. The rest just follows.

someone needs to make a public announcement about the sacredness of the 26 jumper and why cam needs to wear it so this gains some traction, someone tell the freo doker haha

I was a bit young to experience clive at his best but please tell me some clive centric stories and share any known clips of clive.

Just close your eyes and imagine a commentator - Dennis if you will - yelling "Cllliiiiiiiiiivvee", and then a streak of a flying blonde mullet somehow crashing through a pack, but also over it at the same time, and doing what would have seemed humanly impossible, as he hits the ground, belly up, with ball in hand.

Then it's a case of flip the coin - does he go back and slot the ball straight over the goal umpires head, or does he spray it and whack the bloke sitting in the forward pocket who's watching where he hopes the ball will go, but, sadly, does not.


The essence of Cliveness.



And may I say - the Keplinator did the number proud.

Clive was always doing the opposite of everyone else. During the Demolition Derby, everyone was losing their mind and while Clive was calmly slotting 7 goals.

Do you or did you play footy, Dropbear? If you did, is there a bloke at your club nicknamed "Porno"? (I think there is a bylaw that says there should be, so if there isn't, get that sorted out. There should also be at least one Stiffy). Clive was Freo's "Porno".

Mad as a cut snake. Dumber than a bag of hammers. Randier than a roided-up rodent. Harder than a terrier's tool.

He went for marks with his eyes closed. He often failed at the easy but pulled the insane off nearly every time. He was not just doing the opposite of everyone else - which is a great call - he was the perfect distillation of the "almost" player.

A squinty-eyed, muscle-bound, white-haired Pom who only started playing footy when he was 17, Clive could have been anything and often was. Just not always when you needed him to be.

He was the Crazyhorse. He gave with one hand, then took with the other.

You guys know i messaged the freo dokers about starting a number change campaign and he hasn't got back to me.

So i'm changing tactic lets all message/email the club about how 26 rightfully belongs to dardy mccrafty( tell them about clive they will understand) and 11 belongs to liam henry.

Of course colyer will also give up his jumper of 33 for kobe farmer when he arrives.

Unfortunately it seems like McCarthy won't be given the chance to live up to the glorious standards of the number 26, hopefully if it is given to Acres, he can give us a damn good performance every week that he puts that guernsey on.
