Probably in, the collection is already printed.
But if he moved to Newcastle or Chelsea, he will be 2 times in the album with the update!

Yeh but Watford are in Div 2 aren't they. :p
Yeah, but every other country with decent albums have more than one division, so Panini UK are missing a trick here
aren't they. The more teams in the album, the more custom they can attract to buy their product.

The problem with that is that the Premier League and the Championship and beyond are under separate licences. Whereas the all the French Ligue football is under the one licence.

Also the Premier League has it’s own distinctive branding compared with the lower divisions so it would be such a complication with the designs of the album regardless of licensing.

Don’t get me wrong, I would love to see all the divisions in one album as I am a traditionalist and always look back at the heyday albums from Football ‘78 and right through the 80’s. But you have to remember it was all just the Football League back then and it would’ve been far easier as there were no major licensing issues.

Since the Premier League happened, everything changed and we will sadly never again see a complete UK football sticker album with all four divisions any more. Yes Panini did produce a couple of lower league sticker albums early on, but perhaps it stopped due to lack of interest and cost perhaps? I’m not even sure if anyone still had the license for the lower leagues or it’s ever been up for tender any more.

@Ceesmk Thanks for sharing.

It doesn't look like it adds too many innovations to the previous two editions. Nevertheless, it's one of the best albums Panini produces every year, so I'm looking forward to it.
Also, is it me or all the players have a wide, almost forced smile in the portrait stickers? I think it's the first time I see De Bruyne's teeth.

And here we go again with the parallel stickers:

FFS. Let the thieving continue from sellers.

My post was in jest. I would love to have all lower divisions represented like the yester years of Panini but @Jamiepr74 hit the nail on the head with the licensing issues. I'm a traditionalist as well and would love it if we had team badges and team photos of all other 72 clubs.

Honestly I don't think that parallel stickers are a bad thing. For me the World Cup 2022 was actually easier to complete the album, because I swapped my extras for a good amount of regular stickers, as my goal with the stickers is to complete the album, therefore less money spent.

Also, I think for us (the ones who try to complete the album) the "hardest" stickers (even if they are not: messis, ronaldos, etc) became easier, as the greedy investors are not chasing those anymore.

No mention of a free missing stickers voucher with this 120 packet box? That almost guaranteed a full set from the box last year.
