Here's one for you. Where do you guy's stand on putting names on the back of footy shirts? Where possible I always thought it best to completely avoid it. But quite often these days shirts have a big blank space where a name and number should be and it can look a bit silly without one. Also, if you decide to go for it, do you go for the name of an actual of the team or your own name? Just a funny little issue which popped into my head recently.

In general my policy is that my home kits are never numbered, and away/3rd kits are always numbered. There have been exceptions however, mostly due to receiving them as gifts. Here's what's in my closet: '05 Celtic home kit - blank '05 Celtic road kit - Craig Bellamy #47 (yeah he was only on loan, but he was a legend none the less) '06/07 Celtic International away kit - Shunsuke Nakamura #25 '06 Everton home kit - Tim Cahill #17 '06/08 England away kit - blank I think putting your own name on a sports jersey looks kind of goofy. If I put a player on one, it's always one of my personal favorites

i was given a united shirt for my 20th by my ex with "Corris 20" on it, but the most recent one i got just has "Ronaldo 7" on. mainly cos he's the be all and end all for us at the mo. and everyone else simply hates him, so i get some joy out of wearing his name to ruffle some feathers :-)

I'd prefer to get my own name on one. Or some personal word or term. But I don't wear football shirts and haven't done so since I was 14.

I think it is only acceptable to get your own name on a shirt and wear it if you are under 10 years old.

I tend to be of the opinion that only teenagers and children should wear football shirts.

I tend to agree with Joe. Something very wrong with seeing a 40 odd year old fat man in a football shirt. Like this:

I reckon he Ashley would get a lot more respect if he quit wearing that shirt and instead acted like a serious businessman.

If he was the chairman I would agree, but he just wants to have a laugh with the fans. Still should lose the replica shirt though.

Wearing shirts with players names on = demeaning IMO. You are basically saying to the world that you idolize some 20-something male who kicks a football about.

I agree with nick names if you are going to do it.

I have a mate called Chris Blair and we know him by his last name. He lived in holland for a while and so got himself a Dutch strip that says "Van Der Blairsy" on the back. it is pretty cool.
