Retro Cards Next Year? Please?

Oh the possibilities. Some nice players that are not playing any more but would be great for the game.

*Nicolas Anelka
*Jaap Scam
*Edgar Davids
*Djibril Cisse
*Patrice Evra
*Denilson
*Michael Essien
*Oliver Kahn
*David Ginola
*Michel Salgado

The possibilities are endless....
Maybe some people would view them as icons but I think one of these players a month in the game would be cool. Flashback players seem to be players that are still playing. Would be nice to use some players we have fond memories of.... call them what you want but I think a RETRO card design would be a great idea and if it's an SBC at least we have the option.

    They aren't covered by Fifpro so need individual deals, that then makes them icons.

    I thought about this idea just the other day, effectively icons but without the status. make them specific to the league/nation still so the value wouldnt be as high as an icons.

    would kill to play with a Stuart Pearce 99 aggression card

    I like the idea of different tiers of Icons. Perhaps nation or club icons.

    But from your list I would say the likes of Kahn, Stam and Davids would simply be icons. They were among the best in the world in there positions.
  • I'm sure EA have the money to do this....
    Never mind about FifPro just look after us for once and listen.

    As for nation and club.... I think they should be at the club they done their best.... for example....

    Edgar Davids >>> Juventus
    Michael Essien >>> Chelsea

    And so on and so on.

    Once a month. Not to clash with POTM. Maybe 15th of every month. Just giving my thoughts.

    At a club? No thanks. To many restrictions.
    Davids shouldn't be at Juventus. Davids should be at Ajax in that case.

    Do you guys know how licensing works?

    You can’t just put in anyone you want

    Just to clear that up.... I have said I'm sure EA can get it sorted. Whatever the cost.

    Anelka and Drogba. Idk if Drogba plays anymore or not, but if not it would be great to pair these two up again

    I think it would be cool to have cards with icon links that aren’t icons. Maybe club legends or something. Lower rated but still great cards. Think Jimmy Floyd hasselbaink or maybe shay given...

    A good amount of players OP listed are flat out icons. But a different class would be cool.

    Would you class Anelka as an Icon?
    Just my opinion but....

    Compare him with Thierry Henry.
    One was world class and one was an Icon.

    But there is an agreement of who was better.

    If Luis Hernandez is an Icon, then every player you just listed is above 91. The fact that guy is rated as high as he is, is an absolute joke

    I’d love this if it could happen.

    I’d love a Nobby Solano, or a Faustino Asprilla, or a Tony Yeboah card because they had amazing moments that I remember.

    I’d even love a 45 rated Ali Dia card just for the troll aspect...I wonder how many on here will have to google that name? 😂

    Drogba will 100% get an icon imo... anelka? Forgot about him, could be a decent card.

    Give me that drogba! He will be a broken card. 6'2", pacey, strong, and lethal in front of goal.

    Send me to EA in Canada and I will start my protest/claim/whateveryouwannacallit

    I’m so up for an Asprilla! This would be amazing.

    Also, can I have a Grant Holt please?
