We like to keep things fresh and exciting in the Football Transfer Tavern, so the other night the landlord decided to host a ‘winner-takes-all’ FIFA 14 tournament.
I will be the first to say, I’m flamin’ awful at FIFA; in fact I’m pretty poor at all computer games but this didn’t stop me putting my name (and money) into the proverbial hat for the tournament.
The team selection, as I’m sure you all know, is crucial and despite there only being eight of us playing, it took a good hour to get team selection and line-ups spot on.
One guy had clearly had one too many vodka and cokes as, rather amusingly, he chose York City and just kept saying: “Nigel Worthington will guide me to success.”
I was last to pick, so naturally the ‘Barcelonas’ of this world had quickly been snapped up so I plumped for Roberto Martinez’s Everton thinking that the pace and power of Romelu Lukaku would see me take the title.
Sadly for me, I hadn’t seen Lukaku’s latest tweet before my selection.
