Though I am biased toward Man Utd.

If it was C.Ronaldo and L. Messi on the cover, that would be brilliant. However, Konami can't afford two superstars. Gone are the days where there were both stars like Henry and Terry on the cover in one year.

Last Year it was C.Ronaldo and Owen (in the UK). Owen is a nobody.
I wonder who the 'nobody' is for this year (for UK).
