‘Transfer listed if you lose’ – Some Oldham fans heap pressure on 20-y/o ahead of Finn Harps date

Leyton Orient have been in the news plenty this week after they arranged a FIFA tournament to fill the gap left by the fixture postponements.

The O’s have arranged the FIFA Quaran-team tournament boasting sides from across the world facing off against each other. It’s morphed a little since it first started, with teams originally playing as themselves.

That has since changed to each team being allowed to play with an 85-rated squad, as well as the original complement of clubs taking part changing too. That’s due to some dropping out in protest of the use of the Dream Team logo, Orient’s sponsor but also representative of the Sun newspaper.

Despite the initial hiccups, the draw was made last night for the first round of the competition, with more reaction to some of the ties than clubs usually see for their own FA Cup draw!

The real interest lies in games where the two clubs are truly represented by themselves and not a professional E-Sports player. The Oldham Athletic and Finn Harps tie looks tasty as Tom Hamer is up for the Latics, with the Irish side also expecting a first-team player to pick up a controller.

That’s led to plenty of reaction online from Latics fans eager to see their side advance to the next round of the tournament, with some jokingly claiming Hamer might suffer consequences if he loses.

The things we’ll do to follow football!
