US SOCCER .... needs and wants !


I sent this on the email service a few days ago and the odds have not held up too badly, there is still some 1.57 around and although that will not make any of us rich, unless we already are, little fish are sweet.

Galaxy are the biggest club in the MLS, or at least the highest profile team, thanks to you know who. They need to make the playoffs and to be honest the playoffs and the MLS need them just as much, maybe even more ! However, that seemed highly unlikely even two weeks ago, when LA's only real chance to play some post season football, was by winning their last 7 fixtures.

They have now won four in a row and you just get the feeling that they will get there by hook or by crook and I certainly do not see, Toronto, the worst away team in the MLS, with a 1-4-9 record, upsetting things. One thing is for sure, these odds are very unlikely to see the day out. Everyone, despite what they might say, wants LAG at the show.

The team spirit is very good at Galaxy now and there is much talk of 2005, when they scrapped into the final playoff place and took the Championship. Toronto are missing three players away on International duty.

6.5 points LA Galaxy -1/2 ball 1.62 Stan James/ Skybet 1.60 Expekt... you might find something similar in early trading on the exchanges.

Good Luck.
