Petr Cech chooses, reveals shirt number

New, comments

It's news! Really!

I don't know if you've heard, but Arsenal signed Petr Cech! I know, right? The I's are dotted, the t's are crossed, it's a done deal. And now, of course, we know the single most important detail of this entire transfer, at least if SBN's hit counts are to be believed:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Starting new chapter at 33 years of age with 333 games in the premier league ... That&#39;s an easy choice <a href="http://t.co/UIIVuGIkma">pic.twitter.com/UIIVuGIkma</a></p>&mdash; Petr Cech (@PetrCech) <a href="https://twitter.com/PetrCech/status/619944959706333184">July 11, 2015</a></blockquote>

That's right, Cech has chosen his shirt number, and that's a thing that counts as Big News. Why? I have no idea, but it does. There's other, actual Big News as well - Cech and his new shirt number have been in training today! No news on whether the number helped him train better, but good lord that new Premiership match ball is awful, isn't it?
