As a new user could old hands tell me: in your opinion do Topps use this for monitoring their customers? Do they undertake any other customer research you know about it?
topps dont care about the fans all they care about is money
hope they lose the rights to panini sooner the better in my apinion
AMEN to that caveboydave!
Topps are continually giving us inferior products while maximising profits.

Topps spend so much (£££'s) in securing the lucrative rights for the Premier League and official license from The FA it appears they have very little left in their budget to actually research, plan and produce a quality product.

I doubt the staff in Topps' UK editorial team have even followed the Premier League campaign this season judging by their selections (or should that be lack of selections) for the MA Extra 13/14 collection! And to underline how lazy Topps UK have got they have even copied the "Game Changers" moniker from Panini.

Some have said Topps have rushed this collection. More like they can't be bothered.

Poor show from Topps UK editorial team (again!) to say the least.

I have to be honest, I just bought the starter pack and the inclusion of a single pack of cards, a 5 card preview pack at that, is a little disappointing especially having parted with the best part of four quid.

Don't forget the extra you had to pay for that cardboard squad box...

Full mistake run through:
No new signings
Squad updates
Cardiff Odemwingie(moved to Stoke)
Chelsea Essien(moved to Milan)
Palace Jerome(not a 4 star 3 pushing it)
Fulham Senderos(loaned to valencia)
........No Stockdale
........No Burn
Liverpool Cissokho(not 4 star,3 star)
.....Flanagan(should be 4 star)
Man City no Pantilimon
Man Utd Smalling not 5 star
....... Valencia not 5 star
Spurs Holtby loaned to Fulham
West Ham no Adrian
GAME CHANGERS
Arsenal Mertersacker really?
Villa Guzan no
Fulham Berbatov loaned to Monaco
Liverpool Johnson not a regular
West Brom Redgewell?
West Ham Morrison loaned to QPR
STAR SIGNING
Fulham should be Mitrigolou
West Ham Johnson your having a laugh
MANAGER
Fulham Mulensteen not their fault for a change

Some ratings will always be controversial. And almost all the other things you list are purely due to the stupidly early cut off date given to this collection. The fact that Topps are planning to release "Promotional" cards with new signings just shows how seriously they treat collectors

If I missed anything just say so,I wish Topps would do better I've always prefered them to Panini I think Topps design all of their cards looked class I just think if they did better with ratings(its like all they know of football they get from the FIFA 10 ie. Glen Johnson etc) game and get rid of the little boxes with 1 on 1 stats that have no bearing on the game as it's too cluttered and just do proper folders other than that I love their cards the card design is always the best.

The Star Signing cards look a bit suspect of being cut and paste jobs.

Why are there not numbers on the players shorts of McGeady, Jonas, Jelavic, Holt Guidetti, Matic? etc.. It is because they have been photoshopped off!

The players' heads don't match their respective bodies.

It appears Grant Holt's face has been photoshopped onto the body of Ron Vlaar.
