Yesterday was a poor day for me, I had several bets all at quotes way above those available at kick off, infact, I could have closed all of them out for a profit at that stage, without a ball being kicked. Winners were hard to come by and reports read much as the York-Barrow game, where City had chance after chance, 23 attempts on goal, 16 of which were on target, 9 corners and dominated possession ! On 8 days from 10 they would probably win this game by three goals, but that is football and it is hard to complain about luck when things have been going so well, but I will anyway !
On a brighter note Brentford found a late winner to defeat Hull City 2-1 in the Carling Cup at Griffin Park, the visitors were an EPL side last season and I prefer to think it is a sign of how far the Bees have come in the last two years, rather than the Tigers have fallen, that this is not really considered much of a shock. The home side pretty much dominated proceedings and were worthy of a bigger margin of victory, as pointed out ahead of the Swindon game, someone is going to get a thumping soon.
