XTPL Cup Semi-Final Draw



Good morning football fans and welcome to the XTPL Cup Semi-final draw. Due to a sheduling mishap by the suits upstairs we have been given this rather awkward timeslot in the middle of the night! But being the consemate professional I will soldier on. Now, our guest today *sigh* Garth Crooks.

Garth, thanks being the only pundit who would agree coming in at this ungodly hour.



It is my pleasure Jeff. I must say, I am truly honoured that I have been invited to such an event. The XTPL Cup is quickly becoming a fantasti....



..yes yes, thanks for that Garth. But lets try and move things along shall we?

Ok, so you all know the score by know. There are 4 teams left in the draw.

Ghost World
Interista
Lucas21
Quetzacoatl


Garth, please get the balls rolling.

And the first two balls please, Garth.



The balls are,

Quetzacoatl

and

Ghost World



Ghost World still very much punching above his already considerable weight so and away draw to Q will be pretty tough.

Next two remaining balls, Garth.

Ok right there's the semi. Interista vs Lucas21.

That concludes the draw, make sure you all tune in for what will undoubtedly be an exciting semi-final round.

Garth, thanks.



It was a pleasure. I think both matches will offer tremendous excitement for the viewer. Especially the 2nd fixture which...



Yeah, whatever Garth. No-one cares.

KAM!?



Yeah?



Lets go get leathered!

Home and away doesn't even seem to matter in the cup anyway.

imo, a draw should be a draw and we should go straight to penalties. But that can be something we can think on for next year.

Quetz: Well he played in a reserve match on the 16th and faired ok, so I would imagine it should be next month.

The winner gets into Europe, and there should be prize money for reaching the later stages.

Yeah, Isn't that the whole point of participation? Semi Final place surely has to mean some major.

Gerrard gets another, and takes an extra point off Guthrie.

Not looking good so far...

Gerrard got 15 points today.

Still along way to go though. Cech and Vidic could quickly eat Gerrard's gains away.

Cech's already lost his clean sheet, Neill and Davenport aren't playing, so that leaves Vidic, Neville and the Blackburn boys (and if they keep a clean sheet, that means I'll only get 2 points for Ireland).

Cech and Chelsea used to be a machine for clean sheets, funny how that works out. Dempsey scores lol not even on my bench.
