World Cup 2010 Edition-Dissapointing?

Hey everyone, ive pretty much almost completed this set, however compared to the PremierLeague editions set that Topps produce, I found this one rather dissapointing. And here's why:
The reason I collect the cards of Topps, besides the fact it is exceptionally fun and I really enjoy it. Is the fact that I actually learn alot about the respective clubs and the players involved. I love the fact that in the PremierLeague editions no matter if its Manchester United, Chelsea or even Blackpool then there's still the same amount of cards to collect for each club. Before the season begun I had no idea who were the "ones to watch" so to speak fir teams like Blackpool and WBA, however now I feel thanks to Topps I know a great deal about every player, it strengthens and increases my knowledge of the beautiful game
However for the 2010 world cup edition, I didnt experience this. I was left dissapointed that for certain teams we only had 2 cards to collect (e.g. Algeria and New Zealand.) New Zealand who of course were the only team to be undefeated in the 2010 World Cup. I feel as though they should have taken the emphasis off England and made the album more internationally friendly, by for example having the same amount of cards to collect for each team.
Any views & opinions whether you agree or disagree would be greatly appreciated :)

To experience sort of what you're describing the Sticker album versions for these sets are quite good as they provide stats for the players about their careers etc, and are able to include more players at that. Personally, along with many other people I suspect, cards are more fun to collect though.

Match Attax England did highlight the main players for each team and if you'd have had say 9 players for Algeria their scores would have probably dropped to the 30s for example and would be generally undesirable. With the World Stars set however there were a few more players included and they look a great addition to any match attax england binder. (I could provide ebay links if you're interested)
Great post, I understand completley. I just find it a tad frustrating and just wish they could have dibulged abit more into other teams. The world cup is arguably the most unpredictable tournament in the world so to have loads of cards available for England, France and Italy who all had awful world cup and to have like 5/6 cards on Ghana who had a great world cup, I think is a abit unfair and embarrasing on Topps behalf. As for the Ebay links, much appreciated but no thank you, i'll stick with concentrating on the premierLeague set for now :) Love your videos by the way :)

Im in 100% agreement :1356
Topps main priority is that its a trading card game though which is a problem for collectors who I, as you, would prefer players from all teams and not 265 england players in the set (slight exaggeration...!!)
:cheers I couldnt believe the amount of England players available, they used so many they were almost running out of ideas and using inferior choices, I mean Carlton Cole?! :shrug

and uruguay. fourth place!

As topps are the license owers for england, they would have to prioritise the england squad. and there wouldn't be many cards from the teams mentioned above. this is usually aimed at children and you don't expect a 10 year old naming the entire 23 man squad for algeria.

DON'T FORGET, THERE'S ALWAYS PANINI
Thats very true. However I'm unsure whether a 10 year old could name a 23 man squad other than Englands to be honest. If it was upto me all teams would have had like 10 cards each to collect, with a legends set, keeping it nice and simple, however obviously an idea which people will have differing opinions on. (I also reckon there were far too many LE too)

I'll be honest, I'm very uninformed when it comes to editions from other countries, Im not much of a collector (The England one was my first proper go at collecting) was the German edition really that bad compared to the England one?

I totally understand what people are saying, however doesnt it defeat the object of having LIMITED Editions when there are so many too collect?
