It's a good point you make, I assume it will end up as an 86 rated LM/LW/LF card
E.G. Leroy Sane - Man City. He has a basic card that is 79, a MOTM card that is 82 and his Futties card is 85.
I assume IF Sterling wins the award, surely his cards will be like this?
NIF - 82
POTM - 84
Futties card - 86
Bear in mind the POTM card is a 'position change' too, so his Futties card could have the original position? LM/LW/LF?
(I am a little sceptical of him getting the award as I assume he will get less votes..... many people may not vote for him if they already have his POTM card, especially now they can get it at the moment as the SBC is back).
However, if Sterling does get a pink Futties card and it is 86 rated (for special cards, an 84 card will jump to 86 usually).
This could be a pretty good card and has a link to Gerrard (only a weak one, but a link is a link at the end of the day).
The only other 'English' option at LM/LW/LF is Scott Sinclair of Scottish premiership, yes this TOTS card will probably be better than any potential Futties Sterling card as it is 89 rated, but both have 2 star weak foot.
Sterling is of course the only LM/LW/LF that links to Gerrard and premier league players, so he could end up quite popular, if they do give him an RM/RW/RF card, he won't be much better than Walcott's special cards IMO - mainly down to the 'weak foot'
Will be interesting to see how it pans out.
I assume he will win it, as all premier league cards have won so far. Which is pretty boring and very predictable, but that's FUT I guess.
