HASHTAG

Is it possible to get from 1 to 99 using current squad numbers?

Let's go on a journey from Manuel Neuer to Gianluigi Donnarumma and everyone in between

It’s the end of the season, so let’s put on our classics and we’ll have a little dance, shall we?

Forget the ’11 players Man United should sign in the summer’ pieces. We’re only here for the real hard hitting stuff.

So we’ve set ourselves a challenge. Is it possible to get from 1 to 99 using current squad numbers?

The rules are simple. The squad number has to be correct as of this season and the wearer has to have played a game wearing the number this season, so no random youth products.

Come with us on a journey of squad number discovery.
