Bumper Six Pack: 38 to 43

Pack 38

Arsenal Kits: Not won nutthin...

Marlon Harewood – West Ham United: Seems to have been around for years... but has never really arrived.

Nicky Butt – Newcastle United: Doesn't look so good at the Toon does the England International

Eric Djemba-Djemba – Aston Villa: So bad the named him twice

Robert Green – West Ham United: Decent young keeper...

Scott Carson – Charlton Ath: Decent young keeper who really belongs to Liverpool - for now.

Pack 39

Fulham Squad: Or the scary squad as they are becoming known.

Francis Jeffers – Blackburn Rovers: Speaking of scary, annoying, unspeakably horrid things...

Jlloyd Samuel – Aston Villa: Jlloyd is such a made up name...

Aaron Lennon – Spurs: Nippy ickle winger

West Ham United Badge: Quality old skool badge

Kieran Richardson – Man Utd: Who says playing for a big club gets you into the England squad... well apart from Nicky Butt.

Pack 40

Luis Boamorte – Most Wanted: It mus be the kit...

Gary Neville – Man Utd: My eyyeeeeeeeeeeees. Irksome littl... sorry.

Robert Huth – Middlesbrough: Doesn't sound very German

Fabio Aurelio – Liverpool: Did look Fabio until his achilles went TWANG!

Rob Hulse – Sheffield United: Relegated journeman.

Ugo Ehiogu – Middlesbrough: Ugo has been around for ever. I remeber him playing for Villa against Tranmere in the league cup semi final... Bosnich so should have gone.

Pack 41

Liverpool Squad: GOT! It's a nice swap though.

Kevin Kilbane – Wigan Ath: Even even the Blue Noses thought he was crap.

Carlton Cole – West Ham: GOT! Still not as good as he thought.

Richard Wright – Everton: Ha haha hah ha hah ha. If he wasn't at Everton it would be tragic. He's been released now...

Brian McBride – Fulham: It must be the shirts, Brian isn't that creepy normally - surely?

Luis Garcia – Liverpool: The last time I heard about Luis he was at the Champion League semi final... watching Take That Live from Manchester on DVD. It's not been that long Luis...

Pack 42

Star Player – Stuart Downing – Middlesbrough: Star, yeah.

David Unsworth – Sheffield United: A sprightly young rookie.

Ishmael Miller – Man City: A haggard old veteran of some 53 years. Hang on...

Andreas Johansson – Wigan Ath: Nothing to say here... move along.

Ben Thatcher – Man City: Lucky not to be in prison, they're a bunch of softies at City.

Richard Lee – Watford: Understudy to the 14 year old Ben Foster.

Pack 16... sorry 43 - Yep, it's happened again!

Wigan Ath. Squad: That's fine...

Strange Lego thing – The Mantis: My second one of these stupid things...

Then we have the familiar grouping of:

George Boateng – Middlesbrough
Phillipe Senderos – Arsenal
Charlton Athletic Badge
Osmane Dabo – Man City
Julio Arca – Middlesbrough

All of who appeared together in pack 16. That to me is a bit fishy. OK my experiment doesn't replicate normal consumer behaviour - due to me taking packs from the same bulk retail box - but still it'll be interesting to see how this trend goes.


So 222 stickers are now well and truly stuck. If it was a cricket match I would be hopping along on one leg. That gives a completion of 42.53%!

The six packs were going pretty well until Doppleganger II: The Revenge. So we've 36 swaps. That means the GPP is still over 5 at 5.16 - with GPP obviously rising to 0.84.

The projected finish is still in triple figures at 101.11.

In the teams race Reading have stopped moving again allowing Boro to sneak to just one behind them on 13.
