Poor Conchita Wurst. Since winning this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, haters have used her as a scapegoat for a series of tragedies. Last month religious leaders blamed her for the Balkan floods. Now some football fans say she is responsible for Spain’s shock World Cup exit.

So why is all this happening? Well, it’s all down to series of bizzare coincidences regarding the last time Austria won the Eurovision Song Contest, which was in 1966.

1966 and 2014: The Parallels

Atletico Madrid won La Liga

Real Betis were relegated

Deportivo La Coruña were promoted from Spain’s second division

Real Madrid conquered European football

Both AC Milan and Manchester United failed to qualify for Europe

Last but not least, Spain went into the World Cup as European champions, but went out in the group stage

So does this mean England will miraculously get out of the group stage and win the whole thing? Or will Brazil, being the host nation, secure a record sixth World Cup? Looks like the answers may lie with Conchita…

Update, 20 June 2014: They think it’s all over, it is now! Costa Rica has sealed England’s World Cup fate. It’s all down to Brazil to deliver the expectations as the host nation.

@Anthony: The article you linked doesn’t cite any sources or provide any evidence that anyone actually believes this nonsense apart from the writer. As it stands, it’s just somebody’s blog, and the writer hasn’t backed up his or her claim. That’s especially egregious given the headline of “Spain blames…” – who is this blogger to assert without any evidence that this is the position of an entire country, let alone anyone but himself?

People believe some ridiculous things about Conchita, but I’m not convinced this is one of them.

Hey Realist

You are not much a realist to be honest with you. You are more of a Bullsh*tter in fairness. Conchita did not cause the floods in the Balkans. Neither did she cause Spanish football players grief. What next, she caused some guy to threaten me earlier on while I was on my bike (that I got for Christmas in 2013) and accused me of stealing it and nearly got me arrested something I didn’t do!!!!!!! (That really happened today. No Joke 🙁 ) Give me a break and stop blaming Conchita for everything. 😀

@realist: Well, how do you know they are *real* friends? hmm??? Maybe Ruth is a double agent and passed information to Conchita for this, maybe their supposed friendship was all staged, hmmm… let’s let that sink in…

Okay that’s the final straw, looks like killing 50 innocent Balkans wasn’t enough, she now had to break the hearts of Spanish soccer fans >:(, even after making a great relationship with Ruth, does that mean nothing to conchita? Sure seems like it.

That is kind of creepy with all the coincidences, but people said the same thing with similarities between JFK and Lincoln in the USA, so I don’t think there’s anything major coming out of this. Anyways, maybe the title should be changed so that people don’t assume the government/national team said that it’s her fault.

Hmmm in my country usually at this period we are on the beach,but now it’s windy and it rains… let’s blame Conchita for this.

I don’t know if Spanish said this or not but it is just a ridiculous statement

Wow, those are a lot of coincidences, that is very interesting indeed 😛

How can I contact Conchita? I want her to make Mexico win the Cup, being as powerful as she is, it shouldn’t be a problem.

Not only in 1966 but also in 1998, which was won by Israeli transsexual singer to make Spain lost in the group stages. So sad Spain lost & i always support Spain in Football anything in this story #VamosEspaña 🙁
