If FIFA Had Classic Teams (Similar to NBA2K)

Content of the article: "If FIFA Had Classic Teams (Similar to NBA2K)"

The ability to revisit classic teams is one of my favorite aspects of the NBA2K games, so I figured it would be cool to think about if that feature was implemented in FIFA. With the NBA being a singular league with about 75 years of history, the door gets opened even wider considering there are dozens of leagues in FIFA with 100+ years history. So to start things off I wanted to present some suggestions for Premier League era classic teams. The only restriction is that the most recent teams to be selected for this will be from the previous World Cup cycle (so if you're wondering why I didn't put last season's Wolves or Liverpool team, that's why). In my initial run-through, I tried to limit each season to just four clubs, but then I wanted to add a few that weren't represented at all.
