    Fifa 13 its just Messi on the cover. Yes he is a great player. But what about our Drogba and Lampard. Ok Drog has moved to China but he did have a golden boot, 3 premier league titles...

    Also given all the recent allegations of racism bandied about by the media. Would not having two great players on the cover sugar coat the package. Not to mention there are other teams besides Barcelona or Man Utd and its not every year Chelsea wins the Champions League.

    I think Shaun Goater should get the front cover gig. I don't even know if he plays any more, but that's irrelevant.

    Yeah its a bit surprising they don't have anyone from the Premiership on the front. Every other version of the game, has a player from their own League or Country on the front cover along with Messi.
    Can't say I'm really choked up about not seeing Rooney's ugly mug on the box.

    She dives for cheese pasties

    Fifa 06 looks great but after that it looks like they just gave up on their creativity for three years running. :D

    @Craigy you could put a ? next to Messi's UEFA 2009 stats as the ref Ovrebo didn't call about four different penalties. Still a great player though.

    I think you should put a question mark next to all of them, as they are all filtered through human interpretation, which as we know is bias and flawed.
