Well... I must say that I am rather underwhelmed.
No new signings section. The Mata card shown in the match attax magazine doesn't seem to exist. Apparently the cut off date was January 16th.
Game changers are also a let down. Some are mirror foil and some are just plain cards

What they should do is one year they give equal Premier League rights to Panini and Match attax for that season, then who ever does better gets the rights for the next five or ten years whichever years then do it again etc etc.

Dissapointed with this set-will be selling once completed.
Ozil MOTM? Really? Jaaskelainen? He's not even first choice goalkeeper at West Ham? And De Gea as well...

And I don't quite understand the logic behind the 'Mata tweet'. If topps are bringing out signings that aren't on my checklist... I'm not even guna go there.

As a West Ham fan I agree totally with Cescfan1 Jaaskelainen hasn't been a first choice keeper for West Ham for a few months if this had only just happened I wouldn't have minded. And one more thing - correct me if I'm wrong - Adrian (West Ham's new 1st choice keeper) doesn't have a card in this set?

Adrian is probably part one if the cards like mata, not on the checklist but release him and not tell anyone is a good idea :rofl

It would be nice if Topps entered into a dialogue on this forum.

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?

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.

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.

If they thought this would be good enough they shouldn't have bothered with an Extra set this year.

It's just an....inexplicable set. Why not wait 2 weeks and put out accurate cards? Holtby at Spurs? Odemwingie at Cardiff? Fabio at Utd? Berbatov....Senderos....Essien? Dempsey a star signing when he's already gone again?

At least it's only 166 cards (as far as I can see?) so it'll be easy to pick up off the bay of e...

I can't believe they included Jose Campana for Palace. Nice kid, but he barely played for us and his last appearance was I believe the 21st October. He went off to Nurnberg on loan (to get some games) for the rest of the season in January.

I'm always surprised about the cards that have been photoshopped, although it's even the case with the Premier Gold set

Topps Total Football 2009 / SHSS 394 - Kenwyne Jones / Sunderland redemption card

Only just seen the comments about there being updates with a promotion for New Signing cards and surely topps are just shooting themselves in the foot and creating more work for themselves by then having to organize a promotion and having to make more new cards!
I would guess along with Mata there would also be Shane Long, Mohamed Salah, Ryan Bertrand, Lacina Traore and Antonio Nocerino on a sheet of 6 cards and then there are still plenty more other signings that would miss out still like Marco Borrellio etc. so surely there would have to be a fair few sheets over 4 or 5 days?!

Topps use photoshop cards in every match attax set so that they can produce the cards before the player has actually played. Some are more obvious than others.
I know they wanted to get this set out early so it didn't clash with the England set. But world stars was released before extra. They could easily have released the England set at the same time (seeing as it no different) and then released Extra in late March as usual. No?

Very very poor by Topps, No new signings is a joke! Must be the first extra set without them. All Everton cards in the set seem to be okay. Naismith, Stones and Oviedo SU, McGeady SS with Lukaku and Barkley as game changers. Coleman MOTM (Should be after his amazing form this year) Only real fault I can say for Everton's side is not including Joel in it. Made 2 appearances when Howard got sent off. No Hibbert in the set either. Must be the first ever time Tony Hibbert has been left out of a MA set

There is no two ways about it. Topps photoshopping players is wrong for so many reasons. They have done this for a number of years now and is thoroughly unprofessional. Have come to expect nothing less from Topps.
