Manchester United Squad Numbers for 07/08

And I can tell you that I'm freaking pissed and sad... This is the list according to Man Utd's webby...
1 Edwin van der Sar
2 Gary Neville
3 Patrice Evra
4 Owen Hargreaves
5 Rio Ferdinand
6 Wes Brown
7 Cristiano Ronaldo
8 Anderson
9 Louis Saha
10 Wayne Rooney
11 Ryan Giggs
12 Ben Foster
13 Ji-Sung Park
14 Gabriel Heinze
15 Nemanja Vidic
16 Michael Carrick
17 Luis Nani
18 Paul Scholes
19 Gerard Piqué
20 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
21 Dong Fangzhuo
22 John O'Shea
23 Jonny Evans
24 Darren Fletcher
25 Danny Simpson
26 Phil Bardsley
27 Mikael Silvestre
28 Darron Gibson
29 Tomasz Kuszczak
30 Lee Martin
32 Carlos Tevez
33 Chris Eagles
35 Kieran Lee
36 David Gray
37 Craig Cathcart
38 Tom Heaton
39 Fraizer Campbell

As my darling Gabriel Heinze's future in Man Utd is still not very decided yet, he has been dropped from no. 4 to 14, the shirt vacated by Alan Smith. Looking at no. 1 to 11, you can tell who's in the first 11 and who's not.
No. 12 has been given to Ben Foster, hinting that he is 2nd in line in goal, going by traditions. But Tomasz Kuszczak, who is actually 2nd in line in goal is not given no. 12...
Shirt no. 19 reads Gerard Piqué, and I'm really pissed about this. Firstly, as new signings and the reserves move up into the senior squad and "fill up the gaps" in the numbering, why is my Chris Eagles not being considered priority for no. 19? Secondly, during the asian tour and friendlies pre-season he was wearing 19. I'm so damn blardi pissed as he looks as if he is still in the reserves squad as compared to Piqué, Jonny Evans, Danny Simpson, Phil Bardsley, Darron Gibson, Lee Martin, and Eagles is "senior" when compared to some of them! Grr...
