Would it be possible to have a option for players pic and lower league teams pic sorted like league, nation and confederations mega-packs instead of the current mega-pack for players

There currently exists no way to do so other than manually, which as you can imagine is an enormously time-consuming task. To keep it up-to-date, you'd then need to amend whenever transfers, retirements, staff movements etc happen and also to keep track when cut-outs are produced and in which category/ies they should go to. Again, all manually. It's just not feasible at the moment.

Yes I can understand that would it be easier go down the nation route as in English, Scottish etc not English based players

Still, that takes a tremendous amount of constant effort, which is frankly not worth it...
It could be automated but it's still not practical.

1) These files would change all the time, the premier league only changes in January and summer, but many other divisions have staff and players swapping around throughout the year meaning rebuilding an entire "Bulgaria Second Division" pack every few weeks just to add one manager or loan player.

2) It would have to be premium only because splitting hundreds or thousands of files and mirroring them all to filesharing sites and reuploading them everytime they go down or need updating would be alot of work.

3) If it's premium only it would only benefit a very small subset of users who pay for premium and then only an even smaller subset of that subset who would actually prefer to get smaller packs when one simpler complete megapack is available. We may be talking about less than 100 people here.

4) It would be alot of work coding wise, as in weeks, building something like that for less than 100 people probably isn't worth it.

I've thought about it before and it is a good idea in principle, but practically it doesn't make sense.
