Title: The Ultimate Quaranteam tournament
Post by: exigo on March 21, 2020, 06:58:48 PM
The nearest we'll have to a match thread for a while. Kudos to the Leyton Orient twitter admin for starting the ball rolling, raising money for EFL teams, Mind and the WHO's COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fundraiser.

128 team tournament. Six minutes each way on Fifa. First round starts Sunday evening.
Villa have been drawn against VVV-Venlo.

Nice one. I might just tune in. Assume we will be setting traps and giving the ball away with regularity?

Even more kudos to the teams who pulled out after they realised The Sun were involved.

I can't remember the context, but somebody said once they were a cha-cha-cha champion (it's a dance) to which somebody replied, "that's a nasty stutter you have there, what are you champion of?"

You had to be there I guess!

 I remember that. The wheelchair one is still my ultimate favourite.

Is it really? Thanks for telling me, I just thought there was a giant standing in the corner of the stadium but didn't want to draw attention in case I was hallucinating.
