XTPL Cup - Official 1st Round Draw



Welcome fellow football fanatics, this is Jeff Stelling! Thank you for tuning into the XTPL Cup 1st round draw. Here with my this evening is England and Manchester United legend, Andy Cole who will be conducting the draw. Andy, thanks for coming on such short notice!



It's Andrew Cole



Oh.

Well, erm, welcome... Andrew to this fantastic event.



...



ahem

Right, ok, lets get on with proceedings. Let me explain the draw. There are only 8 teams in the first round draw since the top 4 in the league get a bye to the second round. The 8 teams in the draw are:

Quetzalcoatl
The Green One
The Judge
Ghost World
Mutu
Hunter Lionheart
Jibril

and bringing up the rear

La Fadabeilo

Now, Andrew, if you could release the balls into the chamber (pieces of paper into my hat) to get things underway.

Ok Andrew, when you're ready, remove the first ball from the chamber.



(removes ball)

It's Jibril



and Jibril will face?



La Fad



Oooh!

The bottom two face off against each other. Both will fancy their chances in that one, especially Jibril with the home advantage.

Ok Andrew, next two balls please.

The Green One



Interesting, everyone's favourite FM will get home advantage against...



Ghost World



Ghost World, the master of pointless statistics! This match should be an interesting one alright.

Andrew, next two balls please!

First ball is Mutu



Ah, Mutu. I always liked him, knowledgable guy who's always up for a laugh. Make sure you don't give him TOO good a team, eh Andrew!!!



Quetzalcoatl



No Andy, that's not how it was supposed to happen! I'll have that tenner back, thanks.

So, a rematch of last weekends decimation might be in store for Mutu

Right, last two balls should be a formality but Andrew, if you will since we need to find out who plays home and away.



Last two balls are

Hunter Lionheart

and

The Judge



So there we have it, the first round draw. Here's a summary of the fixtures.

Jibril vs La Fadabeilo
TGO vs Ghost World
Mutu vs Quetzalcoatl
Hunter Lionheart v The Judge


Make sure you tune in this weekend for these exciting first round matches!

Andy, thanks for joining us.



It's Andrew!

This is the greatest thread to date.

Lucas, the winner of me and La_fad will get a hiding in the next round, regardless who we face - We play like a true pub team.

If Carlsberg did forum signatures......

Don't forget I'm barcelonista and "perico" Balague and "dumbo madridista" Hierro wouldn't ever be invited by me.

Nice show!

brilliant Mutu , I am really interested in the XT Cup. Simply because right now its a single leg knock out, so you have to be perfect in order to win.

One thing left to rectify is if there is an equal score how to factor the game, the committee will discuss tihs matter and make an announcement by friday.

Vicente05Ū will be back
Kroos05
Ū is the future

No Kroos no party baby!!!!!!!!!!

What about home advantage regarding the 19 points rule? Is there any home advantage?
