In their first season Two Goals One Cup was in start-up phase: mainly focusing on training, clean up and stabilize their first team players and work on decent income. This didn't hold them back to set a season goal to conquer the third position, behind the two far more experienced teams 'Team Boer' and 'De Godenzonen '87'. Due to poor performance in matches against 'Zaandam FC' and 'FC Finesse' the team didn't achieve their season goal and ended up 4th instead.
When 'De Godenzonen'87' and 'Team Boer' promoted to the 7th division at the end of the 46th season, the fiercest competition was gone in the series. When two other human teams transferred to other series, only newly founded teams or bots were competing with Two Goals One Cup in the 47th season. Winning the league felt as an obligation rather than an actual achievement. The club became 'champions' after playing 12 rounds without losing. The team promoted to series VII.224.
Two Goals One Cup currently plays in league VII.224, a series ranked around 340 of 1024 in the 7th division. As second to lowest ranked team in the league, The club was expected to work hard to avoid relegation. However, after four wins in the first half of the season, Two Goals One Cup secured a solid position in the middle of the table. The club started to win most of their matches from then on and battled for a place in the top three up till the last match of the season. As the no. 3 (BTS Schoonhoven) secured a 4-1 win over the no. 1 (FC Kampsjaak), Two Goals One Cup took over the first position because of their win over Zusters UTD and became champions of VII.224.
Two Goals One Cup's fan club is called The Green Legion. Containing 900 members at the start of this (48th - Dutch: 37th) season. The fan club is a rather pessimistic bunch, as they expect a bottom rank or relegation in every season so far.
The Zaandam Controversy
In the 46th season, when Two Goals One Cup was founded, the fans didn't have high season expectations. However, after the coach made a dramatic tactical error in a matchagainst Zaandam FC (a bot-team), the fans became unexpectedly aggressive because of the match result (1-1). The mood plummeted, resulting in a decrease in supporter-flow.
In season 47, the expectations of the fans were still extremely low, even though the club hasn't lost a single match. Every match expectation is defined as a 'close affair' or 'slight edge' even against bot-teams. Matches against Zaandam FC however (still a bot-team) the fans surprisingly claim: 'a piece of cake!' for both battles.
Two Goals One Cup owes its largest victory to the club from Zaandam. In season 47, round 4, they won with 0-12 on the scoreboard.
