Five Star Toure

Five Star Toure

Only a week after Tomas Rosicky & Francesc Fabregas got their new numbers, Kolo Toure has at last been issued with a proper defenders number.

Since joinh Arsenal in 2002, Kolo Toure has worn the unorthadox number 28 shirt, but in this period of change he has now been given a real defenders number, the number 5.

Toure has been a rock for us over the past few years, and now Sol Campbell has departed he will become the leader of the defence (although in honesty, he's been leading it for a while now anyway)

I have to say well done to a player who is already one of the top in his position.

Great to see someone deserving take over Martin's vacated number. TH14 is still odd to me, but it's too late to change now. Will be missing not having no. 10 on the pitch.
