Uh oh: Ramires to wear No. 7 shirt

This morning, Stamford the Lion announced on Twitter that the club's latest signing, Brazilian midfielder Ramires, will be wearing the coveted No. 7 Chelsea shirt. Wonderful news.

Ramires will be following a long, long line of legends to wear the 7. Here is a sampling.

MANICHE.

bogarde

That is some list. Inspirational even. Winston Bogarde, idol.

Perhaps we could look at it from a more positive light. How so? Well, Ramires has very little to live up to there. For one, if he plays, he has Bogarde soundly defeated. I like this view.

But, in all seriousness, it's not the shirt that makes the player - the player makes the shirt. Glad to have you amongst the boys Ram, make us proud.
