Last 16: The World Cup Of ‘Liquidation Lies’

FA Cup draw

Good Evening.

Yesterday saw the start of the most exciting competition to hit Scotland in several decades: The World Cup Of ‘Liquidation Lies’. You can read about the background to it here.

Following a bruising series of fixtures and over 7,000 votes, the First Round results are as follows [with the winners in bold]:

“Imperfectly-Registered Players” (40%)  V  (60%) The ‘Club’ Is A Metaphysical Construct

The ‘Club’ Is An Ethereal Entity (54%) V  (46%) “54 And Counting”

‘Armageddon’ (39%) V (61%) The Holding Company Was Liquidated

Neil Doncaster’s Assertion That It Is The ‘Same Club’ (59%) V (41%) ‘Slow Lingering Death’

Rangers Were Cheated Out Of 2011-12 Prize Money (28%) V (72%) Clubs Put Sevco In The 3rd Division Through ‘Bigotry’

“No Sporting Advantage” (69%) V (31%) HMRC is Pursuing A Vendetta Against Rangers

The ECA Recognises It As The ‘Same Club’ (25%) V (75%) LNS Concluded It Is The ‘Same Club’

Sevco Are Picking Up UEFA Coefficient Points (25%) V (75%) Scottish Football Needs A Strong ‘Rangers’

Rangers Were Demoted (78%) V (22%) The ASA Said It Is The ‘Same Club’

“Rangers Then, Rangers Now, Rangers Forever” (47%) V (53%) Enjoying ‘The Journey’

Charles Green Bought The ‘History’ (71%) V (29%)The ‘Kit-Kat’ Analogy

The ‘Club’ Was The Victim Of A Conspiracy (56%) V (44%) The ‘Club’ Was Sold Before Liquidation Started

“Rangers Are Coming” (45%) V (55%) The Courts Confirmed It Is The ‘Same Club’

Rangers ’Emerged’ From Administration (83%) V (17%) The ‘Old Firm’ Is Alive And Well

The ‘Club’ Is The SFA/SPFL Membership (41%) V (59%) The ‘Engine Room Subsidiary’

“Unbroken History” (69%) V (31%) FIFA Confirmed It Is The ‘Same Club’

I think many will be shocked to see ‘The Kit-Kat Analogy’ crushed like a flimsy chocolatey wafery thing in the First Round. But it had a very tough draw, and you would have to fancy “Charles Green Bought The ‘History'” to go a long way in the tournament. ‘The Kit-Kat Analogy’ asked the Court of Arbitration for Sport to look at all the paperwork filed by its opponent, citing irregularities and adopting the slogan “let hypothetical confectionery win”, but CAS dismissed the appeal.

The Last 16 competitors are as follows:

  1. The ‘Club’ Is A Metaphysical Construct
  2. The ‘Club’ Is An Ethereal Entity
  3. The Holding Company Was Liquidated
  4. Neil Doncaster’s Assertion That It Is The ‘Same Club’
  5. Clubs Put Sevco In The 3rd Division Through ‘Bigotry’
  6. “No Sporting Advantage”
  7.  LNS Concluded It Is The ‘Same Club’
  8. Scottish Football Needs A Strong ‘Rangers’
  9. Rangers Were Demoted
  10. Enjoying ‘The Journey’
  11. Charles Green Bought The ‘History’
  12. The ‘Club’ Was The Victim Of A Conspiracy
  13. The Courts Confirmed It Is The ‘Same Club’
  14. Rangers ’Emerged’ From Administration
  15. The ‘Engine Room Subsidiary’
  16. “Unbroken History”

The draw has been made, and the fixtures are as follows [NB click on the links for the opportunity to vote]:

“Unbroken History” v  The ‘Club’ Was The Victim Of A Conspiracy

Scottish Football Needs A Strong ‘Rangers’ v The Holding Company Was Liquidated

Rangers ’Emerged’ From Administration v LNS Concluded It Is The ‘Same Club’

Neil Doncaster’s Assertion That It Is The ‘Same Club’ v ‘No Sporting Advantage’

The ‘Club’ Is A Metaphysical Construct v Enjoying ‘The Journey’

Clubs Put Sevco In The 3rd Division Through ‘Bigotry’ v The ‘Engine Room Subsidiary’

Charles Green Bought The ‘History’ v The Courts Confirmed It Is The ‘Same Club’

The ‘Club’ Is An Ethereal Entity v Rangers Were Demoted

Ooft! There are certainly some intriguing encounters there!

David Tanner is currently knocking on the door, asking if he can host the coverage and say ‘Old Firm’ a lot. I am away to tell him to get lost. All eight fixtures have been tweeted and the results will be confirmed tomorrow evening. Please share, vote and remember… it’s just a bit of fun!
