This is a very short post to follow up from the last post I made where I discussed the Toronto FC v Santos Laguna game and how the return leg would be a different kettle of fish. Seems I was right. It pleases me greatly to say two things came out of tonight’s match in Mexico – the Mexicans crushed the life out of the Canadians after winning by 6 goals to 2 as I said they would (crush them, that is). And I told you Plata was a decent player – he bagged both of TO’s goals tonight and I really wouldn’t be surprised to see him leave MLS and move on to bigger and better things.
I have to admit I was pretty well stunned to see Toronto open the scoring and even more stunned to see them retake the lead towards the end of the first half but Santos had all the answers tonight, drawing level again before the break and seeing them off in the second half in the manner I had expected them to.
For me there really wasn’t much to turn me on price wise. I really wanted to back Any Unquoted but the prohibitive price saw to it that I looked elsewhere. I opted to lay the 0-0 HT score and was waiting for my 3.35 lay to be matched when the first goal went in. As soon as the suspended sign cleared I jumped back in for a lay of the 0-1 HT but had to wait for what seemed like an age (15 minutes) for the bet to land. I did consider going in yet again and laying the 1-1 HT score but I decided against it only to see not one but two more goals before the half was finished. All in all though a very pleasing result as I’ve been telling anyone who will listen that tonight was the proverbial mortgage job.
That’s pretty much it for now. The flat racing has now started so I can at last begin to flesh out my neural network application and hopefully reveal it to the masses for their approval but knowing how fickle gamblers are I’ll be standing by for the expected torrent of abuse just as soon as it gets a couple wrong. See ya next time.
