Sidemen YouTuber TBJZL gets emotional after buying his brother Jed in EA FC 24 Ultimate Team
| Last updated
TBJZL, a member of popular YouTube group Sidemen, said he 'could have cried' after buying his brother Jed Brown in EA FC 24 Ultimate Team.
To give you some context, Tobi Brown and his brothers, Manny Brown and Jed Brown, were invited to train with League Two outfit Crawley Town on November 1 last year.
As part of WAGMI United’s partnership with the British YouTube group, Crawley sent a group of scouts to watch the much-anticipated Sidemen FC charity match one month prior to the trial.
And the trio impressed enough to earn their shot at earning a contract with the Football League side.
Crawley said they "looked forward to the possibility of Tobi, Manny and Jed joining their team on a trial basis for training and the matchday experience."

Since the trial day in early November, Jed, 24, continued to train with the club after showing his talent.
And three months later, he officially left London-based side Fisher FC to sign a developmental contract that meant he would join Crawley Town's B team.
“Jed is a young player who has acquitted himself well during previous training sessions with the team, and we’re happy to have him continue his development as a member of our B team," said co-chairman Preston Johnson in February.
"While he may not currently be part of our first-team plans, we welcome Jed to the club and look forward to his continued growth as he trains alongside his new teammates.”
While Tobi and Manny continued posting content on YouTube, their pacey brother was showing promise on the left wing for Crawley's B team.
Now, seven months after signing a deal with the Reds, Jed Brown has been inducted into Crawley Town's first team squad on EA Sports FC 24.
In fact, Tobi decided to splash some coins on his brother's 54-rated LM card on the Ultimate Team game mode – and it was an emotional moment for the 30-year-old content creator.
"This is so weird," Tobi says on his TikTok account tbjzltok. "I have to cop one... I just bought my brother on FIFA! I'm gonna cry. Do you know how crazy that is? That is so weird. Thank god."
You can see how much it meant.
Jed, who has yet to make his professional debut for the League Two outfit, has been promoted to Crawley’s first team and is listed as a squad member for the 2023/24 campaign.
He's also been named in a matchday squad in the Carabao Cup and EFL Trophy.
