FIFA 09 Cover: Why the Flip Use John Terry?

Chelsea fanboys, eh?

Ronaldo and John Terry  - we so don't think so.
Ronaldo and John Terry - we so don't think so.
Chelsea captain and penalty-inexpert, John Terry is appearing next to want-away Manc United winger Ronaldo (the younger) on the front of the UK's FIFA 09 if a post on the PlayStationUniverse site is to be believed.

We have one question though: why would any member of the England team that couldn't even qualify for the Euro 2008 competition make in on to the front of EA Sports flagship title, let alone a penalty-missing centre-back?

We're saying that this cover is fake - just for that reason. So, who do you want to see on the cover? To the Forum with you!

John Terry should not be on there, i think Torres should be, look at the season he's had (including the Euro 08), and Ronaldo has the right to be there, look at his season.

Carlton Palmer maybe? Or what about David Platt. Was David Platt not on Fifa 94?

I can see why Cristiano Ronaldo would be on there but it's a gamble what with him possibly leaving. There's no way it's real though, as Terry is wearing the old Chelsea strip. No chance.

there should not even be a defender on the cover unless he was absolutely key to a teams seasons the only reason i could understand why john terry would be on there is because chelsea and man u. are rivals. i think the cover should be Lionel Messi (left) Iker Casillias (centre) Cristiano Ronaldo (right). all players were great players for their club and greatly responsible for their clubs success.

All of u say he shouldnt be on the front cover a striker should u are all typical football no nothings defense is just as important as attack i support chelsea and john terry is my fav playa and it is easy to see that e is the bst defender in the world and yes i cryed when he missed the penalty but u are all forgeting the other guy on the cover missed aswell at least john terry fooled the keeper and wat about ronaldo he spooned the penalty against barca
u i say put him on the cover be different

That's clearly a fake. For one reason, they have last season's Chelsea kit. The new one is different. Also I doubt they would put Terry on the cover. FIFA games hardly ever put a defender on the cover and I highly doubt Terry would be their first choice after costing his team the Champions League at the end of last season. It is more likely they would put a more attacking player there e.g Torres, Drogba, Fabregas or perhaps Santa Cruz.

Also, has a deal with PES so i don't think he would be allowed to be the front man for FIFA 09

I agree with Ronaldo being there but Terry's a big no-no!

Why not Ronaldo & Fabregas?

That cover is 100% fake as it's the old Chelsea jersey as well..

ronaldo, n walcott should be in the cover so the cover would represent the present and the future of the league!!

I think that picture is a fake. Ronaldo is on a contract with PES so won't be on it regardless.
I'd like to see Rooney and Kaka cause hey I'm Scottish and it's unlikely to be any Scottish Players.

If it was though I'd like to see Darren Fletcher and James McFadden
