Football #2

Thought I'd outline the other footie services I've lined up for next season. I've already posted thoughts on Skeeve, Football Elite and Football Investor/Strike Zone. Now the others...

4. The Football Analyst. Having seen first hand the amount of sheer hard work that has gone into the development of these systems, added to the positive results attained last season, I'm looking forward to implementing consistent staking with my chosen system(s) over the course of the forthcoming season. Had I had a consistent approach last season, I would have made a lot more money from TFA than I did, and what I did make wasn't bad at all. Obviously Graeme is launching commercially for 2011/12. For £75, I suggest it's as good value as can possibly be secured anywhere in the paid for tipster world.

5. The Sportsman. Not strictly speaking a football service per se. In fact forget that. Not even loosely speaking are they a football service per se, as there is also solid involvement in darts and racing too. Footballistically (sic), The Sportsman complements the other services nicely, as bets tend to focus on different markets - Over 2.5 goals, corners, bookings are typical markets played in, which are completely different from anything the other services do. I felt that I really only saw this service flourish in the second half of last season. The run up to the New Year was far from disastrous, but no real forward momentum was being attained. It's inevitable that all services go through periods like this I think, and then when it did click, I rather enjoyed the ride. High hopes for next season.

So with On The Oche just added, there's a lot to like about the look of the "Sports" section of the portfolio. Roll on the footie season. I just hope Arsenal have eleven players to put out by the time August rolls around. First home game, I might just take my boots.

Today's Betting

The losing run continues. That's five consecutive days now, and only two of the last eleven have seen a "+" sign preceding the day's balance.

Just three services in action. ProBandit was the most successful, finding a winner this evening (Blue Maisey - Windsor - 4/1) but this wasn't enough to avoid an overall half point deficit.

PJA NH started ok, finding one to place (Chapel House - Newton Abbott - 10/1), but the other two finished out of the places.

Finally, The Market Examiner had three which disappointed.

PJA NH: Staked 2.25pts, -1.375pts.
The Market Examiner: Staked 4pts, -4pts.
ProBandit: Staked 1.75pts, -0.5pts.

Monday 4th July: Staked £165, -£99.
Running total: -£563.84 (roi -69.69%).

Odds on a winning day tomorrow?


  1. Nice to have you back Rowan. Although because of you The Market Examiner has lost pretty much every day since you joined, so thanks for that haha.

    It will be a winning day Rowan I can feel it.

  2. Hi Andy,

    Cheers, mate.

    Sorry about TME! It does look like that, doesn't it? Sure we'll be ok. :)

    Hope you're right about today!


  3. Hi Rowan,

    Great blog - I check in everyday to see if its been updated!

    TME - quality service - 100% confident they will be a huge addition to your service (in goes a 6-1 winner today!)

    Quick question, The Football Analyst, where is the £75 offer please, could not locate it when I went on the site earlier?!

    Good luck!

    The Cat.

  4. your lucky you stopped the lays from chasemaster two winners at 7-2 in the last two days shocking stuff..

  5. Hi Anon.

    Ouch - that would hurt!

    I'm sure the lays from Chasemaster are a valuable part of the service in the long run. I just didn't ever feel comfortable laying. It's silly I know, but it just isn't in my psyche.

  6. Hi TC.

    Thanks for the comment. Hopefully I'll be able to make the read a bit more upbeat one day soon, having turned a profit on the day! We live in hope!

    I think you're right about TME. As I said in tonight's post it's always nice to get off the mark with a service. Been really impressed so far with how it's all run too, and I want to comment properly on this - just don't have time tonight. Perhaps tomorrow or Thursday.

    Re. The Football Analyst. The best thing to do is email Graeme directly at He'll give you any info you need, I'm sure.

    Good luck.


  7. Thanks Rowan, will drop him a line now.
