Should #7 be given #10?

    Seems like after DMB was switched to central midfield, he has been more dangerous than before (and less knocked around). Has coach Sarachan stumbled upon a playmaker we never knew we had?

    I'm not suggesting anything directly, but if this keeps up through the playoffs Beasley should really be considered as a candidate for the hallowed #10 shirt.

    Absolutely not. Don't worry though, we'll get a #10 soon enough.

    Seven is a very significant and highly respected number in soccer. I'd say it ranks right behind #10 in prestige for field players. Guys like Ronaldo are getting #9 some real praise, but seven is still right up there. Seven is often worn by an outside midfielder, like Beckham or Lewis. Ten is either a powerful forward or a composed playmaker. Beasley's energetic style doesn't warrant a switch to #10.

    Think of it this way: If you had the choice to bench Beasley and insert the 1998 Peter Nowak, would you? Right, so would I. Beasley is a great #7, but he isn't a #10.

    the jewel encrusted #10 would be too heavy for everyday wear.

    it couldn´t be much more jewel encrusted than Beas´s #7 neck-piece (bling bling... whatever).

    I have an idea, let's let Beasley decide!

    What, he chose 7? Well okay then.
