Can you believe the cheeky buggers who nicked my identity (!) and used it to open three new mobile 'phone accounts paid to get the things insured! So they nicked my details and then insured their illegally purloined goods against theft!
It's not been a great weekend. Not catastrophic, by any means, but not great. Instead of going into the ins and outs, I thought I'd post the figures and make some general comments.
So, here are the weekend (including Friday) figures...
Northern Monkey: Staked 8.25pts, -5.437pts.
Winning System Bets: Staked 2pts, -2pts.
The Sportsman Racing: Staked 0.5pts, -0.5pts.
Sportyy: Staked 9.5pts, -5.31pts.
Form Lab Lite: Staked 11pts, -4.05pts.
On The Oche: Staked 3pts, -0.313pts.
Skeeve (Asians): Staked 12pts, +5pts.
Service X: Staked 26pts, -2.39pts.
Summer Of Football: Staked 6pts, +1.974pts.
The Sportsman: Staked 0.3pts, -0.3pts.
The Football Analyst 7/22: Staked 0.5pts, +0.645pts.
Football Elite: Staked 1pt, +1.03pts.
It's been a difficult week on the horses. A coincidence that this side of the portfolio has started to struggle again since the rain started coming down?
As for the football, the most remarkable thing of the weekend was Skeeve losing his marbles (his words, not mine), and turning a nice profit by doing so. Identifying the fact that this weekend's Blue Square Premier card was particularly tight, instead of keeping powder dry, Skeeve went in backing the draw in every match. Calling five correctly provided a decent profit, but frustrating to see that going into the 90th minute, seven matches were all square. Still, perhaps there's a lesson here - we should be encouraging Skeeve to lose the plot completely. Once we've got him acting like one of the characters in One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, we'll be having some weekends, I'll tell you. In all seriousness though, it's great to see a tipster thinking outside the box without being rash, and even nicer when an audacious move pays off.
A noticeably solid start from both The Football Analyst and Football Elite is good to see, as is the consistency being displayed by Summer Of Football.
Other than that, it's all been a little underwhelming. Let's see what this week brings.
