Time for a quick update. I have had some family time this last few weeks getting a few visits in whilst my son was home from university before my upcoming birthday this weekend. A myriad of sport seems to have passed by with the Masters, Boat race and National all falling on one weekend and then the FA Cup semis and Champions League quarters, April is a great month for sport.
I snagged a place on Matsuyama in the Masters at 70/1 having posted my tips on Twitter, I was pleased to see the Golf Guru also put up Matsuyama and with a few winners this last few weeks including Johnson at 20/1 and just last week Aphibarnrat at 35/1, Golf Guru is really a service you should all be part of, low cost and a few bets placed Wednesday and that is it, for just that the service is over 180 points up since launch and always provides weekend excitement. Back to The Masters and Spieth was sensational. I just feel the tournament is losing something as a spectacle now. The equipment goes so far that the par 5’s on the back 9 no longer require any more than mid irons for these guys so the days of Seve and Curtis Strange hitting fairway woods into the water are long gone and as such I think the tournament will wain for excitement. We will always wonder at the course and flowers etc but as a sporting spectacle it is a bit lacking for me these days.
I didn’t see the National or have a bet in it for the first time in years, the fairytale was a McCoy victory but unfortunately it never landed, it would have been great to see.
Having always supported Oxford in the boat race owing to childhood family ties, but with a son now at Cambridge I was asked if my allegiance had changed – Hell No!! Oxford delivered another crushing defeat – beautiful!
Timmy has got Villa to Wembley, inflicting a defeat on Spurs at the Lane on the way and I need to cheer him on now with Arse as the opposition! We know the semi finalists of the Champions League – for supposedly the best club competition in the world it is highly predictable, perhaps Juve sneaking in is a slight surprise. I am getting more and more drawn to the Championship (probably a good thing with the direction Spurs are headed), it is getting more and more exciting each year and this season at the top is unbelievable, supporters of the teams involved must not have any nails left and still twists and turns to come. Burton Albion have saved the ante-post portfolio with Shrewsbury as back up in that league it should be a nice profit.
I know a lot of you are waiting for the changes and you will see that the site now has a new much simpler plainer look. This will be the way forward I want things much easier for you guys. Kostas is currently away in Stockholm but when he is back we will add the service pages. We will be proceeding with Will Lattimore, Goals, Goals, Goals, Stallion and a new complete FTS Membership for next season. I am going up to see Soccerstato Steve next week to finalise the new stats section which will be part of the set up and the other learning tools will be added once these things are finalised over the next couple of weeks.
We are awaiting the launch of the automated betting service but I have some sad news. Art who has become a great personal friend and a good friend to FTS over 7 years, lost his mother on Tuesday after a long battle with illness. Art is developing the bot but obviously personal issues are far more pressing Art is free to take whatever time he needs. I will update everyone when the time is right. Art has been a huge part of FTS as a moderator, friend, reviewer and I am sure you all join me in passing on our condolences. Time like this put a winning or losing bet into perspective and having lost my own mum 10 years ago I know how sad it is.
I have been asked many questions about the bots. It is simple really bets will be placed by me and will be replicated your end to the stakes you set. It is that simple nothing else will be required by you except a funded Betfair account and an active Gruss Betting Assistant subscription which is £6 per month currently. The bots will have a cost for the software which will include a set period for selections and then going forward a monthly fee per service you wish to operate. We have in play football and set and forget football options and here is the bets from last Saturday and Sunday which would have been in the bot. Don’t worry about missing out as this will repeat going forward. 13 bets placed 12 winners and over £1800 profit in just over 24 hours
The horse backing bot in live testing so far is up well over 200 points for 2 months and I am very excited about that going forward.
Current VIP members will be set up first and then those who attended the 2015 seminars will be first in the queue to buy the bot licenses. After those are sorted then I will offer it widespread. There will be genuine limits on the bots availability as we need to offer full support for these including tech issues if anything goes wrong etc and also ensure that all bets get matched at the prices for it to work.
I will post more details on the bot, systems it will operate and open a list for interested parties midweek, next week. I shall give advance warning before this list opens up by email and then as soon as Art is able we will get the ball rolling.
So everything is on plan still the improvements are vast and widespread and simply make your life and chance to profit as easy as they could be.
I will be running two summer workshops one at the end of June and one at the beginning of July in Birmingham and London with the sole aim of setting people up from scratch across both football trading and racing, sharing my exact plans for the 2015/16 season and the bets I will be having with a full portfolio of methods and selection processes so anyone serious about moving forward make sure you attend, those who have attended previously it is another step on again so nothing duplicate for you. Dates will be published once I have them booked up.
