Two professional British FIFA players have been involved in a bizarre series of tweets aimed at one another.
West Ham FIFA player Sean “Dragonn” Allen (left) – who signed for the club in May this year – claims he was blocked by Epsilon’s Spencer “Gorilla” Ealing (right) on Christmas Eve:

It’s not clear why Spencer blocked Sean. When asked by some of his Twitter followers, Sean said he ‘doesn’t know’.
Other pro FIFA players, including Dean Coombes, Danny Taylor, Jamboo and Ty Walton, have also tweeted saying they’ve been blocked by Spencer.
Sean said: “This guy [Spencer] has issues.
“Ty also done nothing… don’t know why he’s so respected in this community, biggest weirdo going.”

Dean Coombes added: “I’ve also been blocked [by Spencer] since me and Sean thrashed him and Tass on Rocket League.”
Spencer responded today (December 27th) by retweeting the following tweet from Tass – another pro FIFA player:

Another Twitter user said the whole thing is a joke, but Sean did say him being blocked by Spencer is ‘legit’.
