    LoI in virtual Europe

    I see livescore - desperate for any sort of football - has started giving results of the FIFA 20 Ultimate Quaran Team Cup (quarantine - get it?)

    Couple of early results -

    Cork City L-L Ross County
    Derry City 1-2 QPR
    Waterford 0-10 Angers
    Burton Albion 0-2 Sligo Rovers
    Oldham Athletic 1-6 Finn Harps
    Portsmouth 1-3 Dundalk

    So what's the craic with this - do you have to play with your own club? Anyone here involved?

    You have to play as your own club. But to even things out, every player has been given an 85 rating.

    Cork City 0-3 Ross County

    Typical.

    Late kick offs just don't suit Cork

    Rovers lost 2-1 to Central Coast Mariners. Interestingly The central coast mariners player is a professional fifa player, could be interesting to see if this encourages teams here to get more involved in this sort of thing. I'm lead to believe the money involved in it isn't insignificant.

    Thought I remembered Dundalk announcing they had signed a professional fifa player a while back, maybe not.

    Ronan Coughlan - neither handy on the field or with a stick.

    I knew I had missed one, Colovic so that was 23 and totally forgot about Oduwa who signed a short term deal, but of course never played due to C-19. This is some squad we have if it ever resumes this season !

    24 on the books then it is.

    The StayIntertoto Cup (get it) is next up. UCD (Liam Kerrigan) beat Nottingham Forest (Tyler Walker) 8-1 just now. Can always rely on students to deliver when it comes to FIFA>

    Also Crewe 4-2 Harps, and Coventry 2-2 Sligo after 20 minutes when internet connection stopped play.

    Have to say, I still don't get the FIFA obsession. It just tries too hard for me. The commentary is ****e, and the player movement is still unnaturally clunky. But I'll take 8-1 any day!

    This is likely the most accurate desription of FIFA ever!!

    Ok this may show how much I avoid 'trends', dont know the significance of hastags or how to use them, dont bother with digital age chain mail challanges on FB and i'm certainly am no gamer, clueless on eSports - but I do have to ask, is this virtual competition of people playing FIFA Football against eachother online?

    Yes.

    Specifically, it's players from each club representing the club.

    UCD beat Hamilton 3-2 today and should make it through to the knock-outs. Though Swindon, the last team we've to face in the groups, are one of the favourites and beat Hamilton 5-0.

    BetVictor are doing odds btw.

    Ironically, Cameron Saul has now had more appearances for Finn Harps in eSports, than he has had on an actual football pitch.

    But we cant blame that on the pitch in Dundalk anymore, so it's only hearsay
