  1. Apologist: Dave Harris, Victor: Neil Wands, Scoreline: 6-1

    Dear Neil ‘ fingers of magic ‘ Wands,

    I write this letter with the deepest regret for my disgusting and shameful performance during the ‘birthday beating’ which you so graciously gave me. There are no words to describe the disappointment I am currently feeling, and not only have I let myself down, I have let you down and more importantly FIFA players around the world. Read More ↓

    I also feel I should apologize on behalf of Hull city FC for portraying there team in such a woeful light and I assure yourself and FIFA that in no way did my performance reflect on there current teams form or any of there players ability.

    Please accept this heartfelt apology, and rest assured I have already taken action to insure this humiliating and degrading scenario does not happen again.

    Best regards,

    Dave Harris

  2. Apologist: Harry, Victor: Louis, Scoreline: 7-2

    Dear Louis,

    I would like to apologise for putting in such an inferior display during the 7-2 defeat to the mighty Saints. Having randomly chosen the exciting Swansea, I felt relatively confident taking on your Southampton side – how wrong I turned out to be.

    It started badly when just 6 minutes in, Vorm was inexplicably sent off leaving me with no choice but to replace de Guzman with my sub keeper, Tremmel. Gaston Ramires confidently converted the resulting penalty, and thus began an exciting, yet for me woeful, match.Read More ↓

    However, I believed my fortunes had changed when Fonte was sent off soon after, giving me an enticing free kick just outside the box. Audaciously, Tremmel took the FK, which hit the wall and nearly led to a breakaway.

    The brave Swans held on until a calamitous lapse of concentration saw Rodriguez score two just before half time. My misery was compounded when the great Jay Rodriguez soon after completed an excellent hat trick shortly after the interval.

    However, hope came in the form of another dubious refereeing decision – Hooiveld sent off for a minor offence, left you with 9 men ( myself being on 10). I capitalised on this, scoring two goals in quick succession, with Britton and Graham providing a glimpse of hope and chances of an apology pretty slim. Or so I thought.

    With the game in the balance, and a comeback on the cards, Southampton responded with a strike from Yoshida and then a superb solo effort by Lambert. At 6-2, the atmosphere was tense, resulting in my spurting rage and abuse at both my team (notably Tremmel) and the referee, who by all accounts had a bad game.

    I thought I had survived my fate when in the last minute Ricky Lambert narrowly missed a well timed volley inside the box. However, with the last play of the game, a cross came in from which Tremmel parried into the path of Jay Rodiguez, who capped off a MOTM performance by heading the ball in and sealing my fate.

    I would once again like to apologise for my pitiful performance, but would like to take the time to quickly acknowledge your unrivalled excellence and dominance on FIFA.

    Yours sincerely,

  3. Apologist: Frosty, Victor: Sam & Tom, Scoreline: 5-0

    I have a confession to make. I don’t really know how to say this and i owe my family an apology but my perfomance on FIFA 12 was absolutely atrocious. i would love to make an excuse for this shocking outcome but I’m afraid the only reason is because I’m absolutely shit at this game. Me and Michael O’Loughlin lost 5-0 to Sam Goddard and Tom Nightingale. I understand that i seriously need to think about what i have done and consider the feelings of my peers. Read More ↓

    Mike and myself need to have a good long look in the mirrow and decide what it is we want from life before we can carry on living. This is a disgraceful loss and we don’t deserve to live in this great country given to us by our most gracious Queen. I would like to make it up to each and every one of my friends, peer and family, so if you would like a personal apology for this terrible act of FIFA then I would be happy to either send you an E-mail or hand write a formal apology to you. I’ll understand if non of you ever want to speak to me again and I’ll apply for a Pre Voluntary Release from her majesty’s Royal Air Force on monday for my actions. thank you for your time, although i don’t deserve it…

  4. Apologist: Peter, Victor: Bradley, Scoreline: 6-1

    My Dearest Son, It’s a proud moment for any Dad to see their son finally be good at something. At last the 5th March 2013 was a night I will remember for the rest of my life. You were incredible with your football skills. Read More ↓

    I am just SO sorry that your friends had to witness my poor FIFA efforts.

    Although I lost 6-1, watching you wiz up and down the pitch with so much precision was inspirational. I thought each one of your goals was beyond anything I’ll ever be able to do at my age. How you strategically positioned every single ball and player. WOW… The other five sweaty goals were good as well.

    At points during the goal scoring I kept forgetting I was playing such an important game. I would stand up in honour and put my hand behind my ears as if to listen to the reaction of the crowd. I know in my head I was chanting ‘Shaun Wright-Phillips, John Terry’s your Dad’ even though you heard me chant you f******sweaty B****** child.

    I would be so excited and happy if you dropped out of Six Form College and took up playing FIFA as a full time career. You talent is wasted on A levels.

    Just think about it PLEASE

    ♥ The Dad that thinks the world of you x x x

  5. Apologist: Shaun Foster, Victor: Daniel Robinson, Scoreline: 6-2

    Mr sir Lord of the Realm Robinson, recently we engaged in a epic battle set within the grounds of St Marys football ground were 32,589 courageous and loyal fans turned up to watch a demolision in progress.

    Fifa is a game i cherish its a game i appreciate and respect, unfortunatley today was a dark and miserable day for me personally, I have l let the entire FIFA community down i have let myself down and the family name “Foster”. For years my family have maintained extremley high and prestigous FIFA attributes, never going into battle un prepared never submitting to an opponent, always fighting to the last breath. Read More ↓

    Today i threw all that away i threw all the heritage and hopes and dreams of the family name into the abiss. A 6-1 defeat to the hands of a worthy advisory a composed and lethal opponent eho was ruthless to the last second. I am shamed to have ever picked up a ps4 controller i am shamed to have ever played FIFA 15 i dont deserve a heart in my chest for that disgrace of the beautifull game.

    You sir are now my hero and today you sleighed your foe to his knees. I have nothing but respect for your expert thumbs and the way you curess the ps4 controller.

    Well done yours gracefully

    Shaun Foster

  6. Apologist: Amen, Victor: Ste, Scoreline: 5-0

    Dear Mr Greig with regards to our recent league game on Fifa, I wish to apologise for my unfortunate off day.

    Your influential passing in this match was too much for me. I hope you will accept my sincere apologies for wasting your valuable time and embarrassing me in-front of Sam Goddard Dan Deez Farrow and Tom Nightingale. Read More ↓

    However I hope you do keep in mind, in our second leg I will cost you the league, and allow Dave Roach to be victorious and snatch the league from your very hands that made me write this apology.

    Over and Out.

    A Very Disappointed Sherundi
