Green is also a self-described "semi-professional FIFA player". He was manager of the Swindon Town Swoodilypoopers up until late 2013, when he was fired and instead became the manager of the AFC Wimbledon Wimbly Womblys. Since then John has not been a semi-professional FIFA player as all of the proceeds of Wimbly Wombly videos goes to the real life AFC Wimbledon. As a result of the big support of Nerdfighteria as a sponsor of the club, AFC Wimbledon players now have the Nerdfighteria emblem emblazoned on their shorts.
