For a start, they are not in any of my local shops... shocking as Match At tax 13/14 was stocked two days before mainstream release. Terrible Topps.

Here are the problems I have picked up on:

1.No ACTUAL star signings- Mata, Mitroglou etc...
2. Only two HTH- didn't Eto'o score one?
3. Cabaye is a MOTM despite the fact he no longer plays for the club
4. How does Berbatov change the game for Fulham as he is the other side of the channel?

*SARCASM* But apart from all this it is an EXCELLENT collection! *SARCASM*

For West ham
Squad updates:
McCartney (Fair enough)
Cole (Obviously as signed later than set came out)
Vaz te (Played minimal games this season)
No Adrian despite playing most games this season

Game Changers:
Reid (been excellent thoroughly deserves it)
Morrison (Now at QPR, Hit and miss Noble deserves this spot way more)

Star signing:
R johnson (Dont make me laugh hes pathetic)

Man of the Match:
Jaaskelainen (played well till Adrian took over)

So no Adrian despite how well he has played this season
No Armero, Nocerino or Borriello despite being internationals for their country due to the stupid 15th January cut off point.

Whats the point in making a set if its only half finished?

Extremely poor effort from Topps. I have no complaints about the selection of Sunderland cards in the set but the quality really is shocking.... Way too rushed and will really have to book their ideas up for future collections as im moving further and further towards Adrenalyn Xl collections - much better quealith, value (and accuracy)


Per Mertesacker Game Changer EH?!?!

Poor Extra collection and if the Match Attax England is just going to have a different back from the World Stars as we all presumed anyhow then Topps need to buck their ideas up or pass the mantle over to Panini for the Premier League rights.

So.. Where to start?

It's apparent Topps are rushing this so to focus on World Cup sets, but even so it's poor.

Speaking from a Liverpool perspective I'm delighted with Suarez HC but a few things -
- Aly Cissokho 4 stars and Jon Flanagan 3 stars? Should be the other way around and that's being generous! Cissokho is a 2 at best! Shows Topps give values/ratings based on name rather than performance.
- Johnson game changer? Oh my god what is it with Topps and their infatuation with him?! If he's not a MOTM it's this new card, and I just don't get it. He's been atrocious this season and if he's ever changed a game it's been negatively! Sterling I agree with but the other one should've been Henderson, or he could've been our MOTM.
Please view the thread of the Euro 2016 & Copa America Stickers I need and also my Euro 2016 & Copa America Sticker trades and PM me if you would like to trade!!!

Can't really argue with the Arsenal picks. Jenko has been ok so 3* seems fair enough. Gnabry probably deserves 4*, but looking at the other choices for other teams, I'd say we're lucky to even see him in the set. Bendtner is overated, he isn't better than Gnabry so I would swap the * rating for them personally. Sanogo could maybe have been Miyaichi, but I can see why he's been included and the * rating seems fair.

I would have gone for Flamini and Koscielny as Game Changers and Ramsey as MOTM. Ozil has been average since October and Koscielny is a better CB than BFG, but both are good, so it's not too poor a decision.

Anyway, the whole checklist is stupidly poor and it really makes me think that the people behind the choices for this collection have little/no idea of the Premier League. I don't collect these sets anymore and I don't think I will until Panini get the contract or Topps improve their collections.
