I must have missed that he has passed away.

Pathetic - one full season under his belt

I think it's symbolic. He's essentially secured their long term future too. I've got zero issue with it.

Ultimately, if people are outraged beyond belief (which it's clear people are) then it says more about them than Birmingham City deciding to not use the number '22' any more. That crucial and historic football number... 22.

A very sensible take but still..... 40 games. It's a nonsense.

Indeed it is.

It's a bit selfish, they only have Infinity-1 numbers left to play with now.

It's overtly sentimental but negative response has been just as over the top. It's not a big deal.

22 is one of my least favourite football shirt numbers.

To think, if our great hope had gone on to be the full Rooney he was made out to be we might have been retiring whatever number Alex Henshall had.

It is a bit over the top but whatever, it's not harming anyone is it.

He had two squad numbers - 27 & 30, that'll show Brum.

It was just about a year ago that Bellingham came off the bench and scored a couple in  that friendly when Brum stuffed us 6-1.... so obvious he was going to be worth 30 odd mill.

There are millions of things considerably more wrong with football, this is nothing.

P.S Just imagine the internet if we sold a young player for £30m.....
