Welcome to the new look FTS and a new beginning for the FTS website and experience. It has been a long road to get the new site up and running and I apologise for that delay. The old site was such a mess (particularly coding wise) that our new developer Kostas had to start from scratch to build a site that is efficient, works correctly and is future proof.
We will have teething problems and if you have an issue with any part of the website not working then please use the new support ticket system by clicking “Help Desk” in the top right hand corner of the home page. If you have any suggestions please also submit them via the help desk.
A quick thorough read of this post should answer a lot of your questions.
Where to start.
The first thing we would like you to do is register for the site. This will enable you to stay in touch with everything FTS and access all features of the site. Registration is free and you simply use the form at the right of the page or the link at the top of the page and set yourself up. Everyone who is a registered member of FTS, free or otherwise will be entered into a monthly draw for a £50 free bet each month. Everyone who registers by midnight Sunday 4th August will be entered into a special launch prize only of a £200 free bet, with the draw taking place on Monday 5th. Result will be posted on the website by 12Pm Monday.. No matter what your previous association with FTS you will need to register. You can of course just browse the site without registering if you wish, but registering will make sure you are kept up to date with everything we do.
FTS Paid Memberships 2013/14
Firstly the FTS memberships are now open for the upcoming season. My own personal football betting on which the memberships are based (I only send matches I am betting on and will continue to do so) will commence when the main European leagues are in play towards the end to middle of August. We have three main membership options for this season, FTS Noir, FTS Sapphire and FTS monthly. The Gold membership level has been dropped for this season.
All the details of memberships can be found by clicking the FTS Memberships button at the top of this page. This page contains a table so you can see at a glance the differences between each level. There is then a further sub-menu for you to read more about any particular membership level.
Spaces for Noir and Sapphire are limited and I will be very hands on with these two groups this season.
Noir is much enhanced with new betting/trading methods and those who were members last year know we have a good FTS odds sheet portfolio to accompany the trading methods across 4 main leagues, La Liga, Premiership, Bundesliga and Serie A. I have rebuilt my database over the summer to make it more user friendly for me and I also have some new football statistics software I am using alongside that which is making finding value much easier and quicker. Some of you may have seen a few bets I have posted on Twitter recently as I test everything and already I am seeing a huge benefit to my new set up and know this will be a very profitable season. I will have more on the software when the season is up and running.
I believe Noir is the most complete general trading and football package online and the odds sheets themselves sent each week are invaluable as a tool for you football betting. They are the basis of all I do and I know were well received when I made them available last season for the first time.
If wishing to join Noir I would urge you to act quickly as already we are over 50% full for this season.
Sapphire is a slimmed down version of Noir, less bets and odds sheets and bets for just two leagues Bundesliga and Premiership. This is ideal for those who have limited time or are new to trading football but would like to start to make a profit.
Sapphire spaces are limited and again about 50% full already.
Both Noir and Sapphire are annual payment options covering the whole season.
FTS Monthly offers much the same as Sapphire but on a monthly payment option for those who want to dip their toe in the water perhaps, or those who know that they cannot commit to a whole season of bets owing to other commitments.
You will also notice on the FTS Membership page that I am offering a VIP Mentor option this season. My personal circumstances are much better now, having returned to full health and being back to betting full time myself. This option will allow me to work one to one with a handful of people who may be in a position to consider taking their betting more seriously and to a new level and replicate exactly what I do. I appreciate the cost and bankroll required prohibits many and to be honest so it should. I will only accept people on this program that are set up for it financially and mentally. It is not a cash and grab situation. I will be working very closely as I have before with anyone on this program and if interested it is something you should think long and hard about before even considering signing up.
Details of all the FTS paid memberships can be found at the link below (or by using the button at the top of the page) –
Original FTS Manual Users
Those of you who bought the original FTS manual may be wondering what you do. I will as I always have done send out my FTS games to those who bought the manual and still wish to continue to get selections. In this instance you need to register for the FTS site using the form on the right or the link at the top of the page and then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and email. It will be checked against Clickbank and your original purchase and we will then upgrade your membership manually.
Paid memberships get these selections automatically so need not worry about that.
15 Minute and System 3
I will no longer be sending selections for these methods as I am ceasing betting them this season. The manuals still operate and are profitable, so you can still continue to use your own selections. I am operating in many different markets now and something has to give, these methods are solid small returns and in the overall picture my time is better spent in my other markets.
My involvement with the website is now limited and Kieran will be taking over most of the other operations with me focusing on FTS membership groups. Kieran will be conducting any trials and reviews over time to sort the wheat from the chaff and keep you all informed of what is happening in the sordid online gambling world. These reviews/trials can be found by using the link at the top of the home page – conveniently labelled Reviews/Trials. This page is then categorised for ease of use into different types of sport and different areas for reviews and trials. Kieran has plenty lined up for this and a Daily Trials Post will resume onsite so that you can follow along with what interests you. We will not be emailing trials out any longer as the information arrives all different times of day and it is not possible to collate it all at a set time for an email. The website will be updated daily with trial selections.
If you wish to help Kieran and review products for FTS or fancy yourself as a tipster who would like a trial, we now have a process to apply for that. In the bottom left of the home page there are two links to submit your application to either review or become a tipster. Kieran will receive these and then be straight back to you.
This will be where general posts are displayed and I will be back blogging and ranting a fair few times a week. I have lots stored up to get off my chest and that will start later this week with my first rant for a long time. Kierans daily trial posts will appear here as will certain information for paid FTS members. Over time this will be well worth reading.
THIS IS A KEY AREA especially for those of you who take a paid membership level. You will now have in effect your own membership page and depending on what level you join all your information will be available here. For example Noir members will be able to download manuals, odds sheets, pdf monthly reviews from their membership page. All selections will appear on your membership page for all elements, Fixed Odds, FTS matches etc etc. Only information relevant to your particular membership will appear. This set up is much better for everyone. Selections will still be emailed of course but you can access everything for your weeks betting on your own page.
The forum has remained online and will continue to do so. My views are well known and all I will say is if you surround yourself with negativity it hampers you in the long run. The membership forums are all set up and when the season is about to start I will email members the relevant passwords. I will be active in the membership forums. The forum can be accessed by the link at the top of the page.
On the home page half way down you will see three big blue buttons. FTS Football, FTS Horse Racing and FTS Forex.
I will deal with Forex first. FTS Forex was set up as a service last year by Chris Jones a longstanding FTS member. Chris now makes his living trading Forex and has lots of free content on strategy here. He also has a paid members service at a very reasonable monthly rate where you can have 1-1 skype sessions, follow Chris’s actual trades and develop the skills necessary to profit in this minefield. The FTs Forex button will take you to this area, the free content is well worth reading.
FTS Football and FTS Racing in effect split the site in two and are based on what I actually bet on. Football remains my passion and the core of my betting but since returning to health I have been active betting horses again and doing very well as ome of you may know who have followed Twitter or attended the FTS Roadshows.
FTS Football allows you to access FTS memberships as well as other services which I use and we have had on the site as paid services, namely at the moment, Trading The Underdog and MN Score Lays. These two service now have their own websites independent of FTS with full results and the ability to sign up. They are both open for places. We will continue to manage the services through FTS but in essence they are stand alone away from the main website.
You can visit these sites at
FTS Racing allows you access to products/services I use to make a good profit from Horse Racing. We have some in house services.
FTS Horse Racing Advisory – This is the FTS Daily Racecard which is produced Monday – Saturday and I know some of you love it. Value bets, horses to lay are highlighted and every UK race is looked at daily by 5 pros in the field. The method of purchasing this has changed slightly, you can access it direct from the home page each day now and it will be highlighted when that days card is available. For the moment the price remains the same at £2.50 a day. We may well look at a weekly/monthly option in time.
Ian’s Platinum bets. These are currently closed I am afraid but you can add your name to a waiting list and I will send you details when a space is available. I bet these every day Monday to Saturday myself.
Premium Club System Builder – This is a hugely powerful tool that I use daily. 8 data sets for every race 7 days a week and the ability to look back at past performance (results updated daily) enable you to spot races to bet on with ease.
There are instructional videos on the site now and we have a 7 day trial for people to look at the System Builder and see if it is something you could benefit from. There is also a forum area where you can ask questions on what you see and they will be answered in 24 hours. If you wnat to take the trial simply take a look here
If you take the trial email me (email@example.com) and I will send you the forum password for that area.
We then have two services which again are managed in house but have moved to their own sites. Will Lattimore is a racing advisor for the racing post and ATR. Will has won over 280 points since 2011 and his service is open to join, again results are on the site.
Daily Dutches is a revamped version of AD Dutched. This has been absolutely rock solid for the last 8 months and again results are on site and updated regularly.
I use all of the above to make my racing profits which are over 6 figures so far this year.
The sites are below
That completes a very brief summary of the site and as I say there will be hitches but rather than moan please let us know using the support ticket.
I believe we are heading to the best online set up there is in gambling, driven by someone who makes his living punting not affiliating to a load of rubbish.
The new site is set up to benefit everyone.
The Gambling Academy
A quick mention of the Gambling Academy. This too has had a full revamp and will be available in full at the end of the month. It again has taken far too long but will be back better than ever. Once the FTS website has settled and the season is underway this will be made live again and I will send details out at that time.
