Welcome back, sticker fans. Pies is continuing its bid to complete Merlin’s FA Premier League Official Sticker Collection by opening three packs every Sunday and giving you a running commentary on how we are doing. Click below to see who we got in this week’s stickers.
Javier Mascherano (West Ham) Shaven-headed world beater turned East End misfit.
Mikel Arteta (Everton) Looks like a Tom Cruise plastic action toy.
Ashley Cole (Chelsea) Still looks weird in blue. No tapping him up, he’s not for swapsies!
Didier Drogba (Chelsea) This is turning into a cracking pack! An awkward looking Drog.
Bernardo Corradi (Manchester City) Corner flag-wielding Italian with a cheeky smile.
MOST WANTED: Frank Lampard (Chelsea) It’s a Chelsea hat-trick!
Premier League trophy Bit of a polish and it will be good to take pride of place alongside my Premier League logo.
Carlo Cudicini (Chelsea) I will have completed the Champions by the end of the day at this rate!
Gary Neville (Manchester United) Has a big wrinkle down his forehead from too much scowling at Liverpool fans.
Johann Djourou (Arsenal) Looks delighted to be having his picture taken, but signed his squad number in his autograph. Big no-no!
David Thompson (Portsmouth) Cheeky chappy former England hopeful.
West Ham badge My first shiny club logo. Hurrah!
Dean Ashton (West Ham) Sorely missed Hammers striker. Another squad number autograph. Why?
Danny Webber (Sheffield United) Slightly cone-headed frontman.
Charlton Athletic badge My second shiny badge.
Theo Walcott (Arsenal) Aw, he’s so cute!
Obafemi Martins (Newcastle) Smiley Magpies striker. Autograph is a giant back-to-front S with – you guessed it – his squad number inside.
MOST WANTED: Yossi Benayoun (West Ham) Israeli with a time share on Tomas Rosicky’s hair.
Week two draws to a close and there are still no swaps. Pretty good going, I reckon. Join us next week for another exciting installment of (drum roll please) Sticker Sundays. [Rob Parker]
