Today was the first real day of Premier League action over in England, so I've decided to rip one of the packs sent to me by our UK correspondent, John.
I chose this pack because it has a player from Everton, my favorite team, on the wrapper. They played today, but their 2-1 lead would not hold and they lost 3-2 to Blackburn. Will Mikel Arteta (the guy in the blue shirt at lower left) help produce a better result?
Let's tear in.
Top to Bottom:
Michael Carrick - Manchester United (Part of the Champions League winner last season, but not one of their major stars.)
Mehdi Nafti - Birmingham (Tunisian international.)
Gareth Bale - Tottenham
David Nugent Man of the Match Parallel - Portsmouth (Part of the surprise FA Cup-winning side.)
Fernando Torres - Liverpool (First bona-fide superstar in the pack! Fernando scored the wininng goal for Spain in Euro 2008 this summer, as well as scoring the winning goal for Liverpool today.)
Gary Speed - Bolton (Don't know too much about him, other than that he joined Sheffield United in the middle of last season. With a last name like that, the emmer-effer better be fast.)
Not a bad pack at all, despite no Toffees. I'll leave you with a look at the backs of the cards, which include nice logos.
