Big game tonight in the first round. Swindon V Benfica.

Cameron McGilp facing the world number 2 Fifa player Henrique “Zezinho” Lempke.

So are these guys playing with their own teams or the actual teams of the clubs they represent?

Being a pendant, its actually Benfica v. Swindon, nice European trip for us.  ;) :D

I believe its up to the clubs to livestream if they so choose?

So FIFA's game rules mean that all players have to be 85 rating and over. So obviously ginger pele will feature haha.


I will keep an eye out for anything on the town website/twitter feed.

Title amended... happy now  :smugfu: :Ride On Fatbury's Lovestick:

No diss on McGlip but that's going to be a very tough game against world number 2. So I'm predicting that as per the real world, Swindon will be exiting the cup in the 1st round. Att: 0, with 0 Town fans

I'm predicting a 2-10 thrashing with McGilp posting an apology on social media as per social doctrine (if you lose by 5 or more it's common banter practice to post on social media apologising for being so shit)

If that does happen, I hope he will offer to refund fans' tickets as a mark of apology.

Very good.
Not been in a pub for 7 days.

Hopes of visiting Oldham and Stevenage et al in the summer months are fading fast.

Was a good idea. Lost interest after they started letting people other than players take part.

Massive FIFA 20 tournament. Massive advantage for the likes of Man City who have an official E-Team. Some Clubs have offical representations and other have picked random twitter followers to play on their behalf.
Swindon's first round round match is Vs Benfica who only have the world number 2 player representing them.

So that sounds just like real football. Has the BE-ST (shudder!) match happened yet?

Right, I might as well say this now, S̶u̶e̶ ̶C̶o̶o̶k̶ Benfica have pulled out.

I shouldn't have fallen so head over heels for the idea of Benfica hosting Swindon Town, but here we are.

Thankfully though, the fixture becomes...

@FCNantes

@leytonorientfc
Seems there was some confusion with the Portuguese side between them and their eSports team, and it turned out they didn't actually mean to enter.

(Scared of Swindon imo)

Is there any history of Benfica-associated operations pulling out of planned arrangements with Swindon Town?  :hmmm:

Bookies have embraced the Quaran-Team. You can actually place bets on this whole thing. Swindon are 8-1 outsiders for their opener against Nantes

According to Wikipedia, their nickname is the Yellow House.  Gotta beat any team in yellow.
