Probably the most likely solution -- and we would bet to happen -- would be for EA to perform absolutely nothing different and just delay until their normal TOTY routine to release the special black-and-blue player items. It would prevent any major shakeups within the FUT economy and keep the actual calendar on an even keel.
Think about it. If there's nothing right after FUTmas ends in December, there is a large gap between special attractions. TOTY is a vital section of the FUT calendar that keeps the overall game fresh and exciting within a dull part of the year.
Rather than relying on the FIFPro Globe XI, create your own TOTY. Perhaps even involve the community as well as use polls to help figure out your best XI. I'm sure FIFA won't be heartbroken if you change it out up a bit to keep the soundness of your best game setting intact.
