Now, on to how I did. You will notice that when describing the system I didn't use any words such as 'highly profitable', which is not to say that it isn't, just because sometimes using it can be frustrating and pointless for such little reward. For instance, at the moment I am in a game where the most I can possibly win is £0.09 which all seems rather pointless for 45 minutes worth of work. It is, however, the case that mostly games do not go like this; most games seem to average around £3.50 profit which adds up nicely over a day's worth of trading.
The weekend saw me trade 18 games (1 of which is still in-play) and I had 14 winning trades and 3 losing trades. Below I have included a very handy P+L sheet, provided by the creators of the system, which shows all of my trades and my profits and losses.
As you can see I took a very nasty hit in the Brentford game, but as you should also be able to see in my added 'notes' section, it was not entirely my fault. Before the game the market had ample liquidity so I imagined that it would be fine to trade on, despite being a lower league game. I was sadly wrong and it cost me big time, but at least I will know not to make the same mistake again. Had the market adjusted properly I should have been able to reduce the loss down to about £2 or £3. This means that I have spent most of today trying to recoup my losses from yesterday, but I am now back in the black and I hope it will stay that way. Total profit thus far is £18.34 then, with one result left to come. This is not a huge amount of money for the amount of time and effort I have put in this weekend, not just trading but researching the games too, but at the moment I'm not fussed as I am still learning the ropes. The annual forecast is £3,347 but I am aiming to get that much higher in the coming weeks. In fact, if I take out my -£22 from Brentford it shoots up to over £7000, which is more like it.
Other notes which can be taken from my sheet is the 'Country' column I have added, which is obviously stating which country the game was played in, so that I can see which country has a higher profit ratio (once I have enough data) and begin to be a bit more select with my picks.
One last thing before I go; you may have noticed that the £ sign in the 'won' column on the second trade is not in the same position as all of the others. I have absolutely no idea why this is, but it is driving me crazy as it I always have to have things like this neat and perfectly set out. I have tried all manner of things, all to no avail, so if anyone knows how I could change it please tell me! I believe it originally did it because when entering the amount, I entered a £ sign also, which is unnecessary. Needless to say I have gone back and deleted the sign which I entered, but it still didn't help. (It is also annoying me that the image is trying to escape off of this page, but it is the only way which I can show you the whole spreadsheet. In the future I may crop the 'notes' section and just include them in the write up).
Anyway, enough from me, hope you all had a green weekend. Goodnight.

Ignoring my blog earlier in the week, I decided to purchase the ASP e-book prior to my holiday, so that I could read it whilst away. Before reading it I was a little sceptical about the reviews I had read, as, having searched long and far for a money-making scheme that worked, I had not found one that both satisfied my position and had the potential to make me money. But these fears were soon quelled. The system is everything that I have been looking for over the past few years. I am no longer interested (and haven't been for a while now) in betting tipsters who are, in most circumstances, no better qualified to sell their guesses (for that is all they really are) than you or I.
I had always wanted a system and had always strived to create my own. I am still quite confident of coming up with one or two over my life as I am still very young and learning all the time. For now though, I can find no better system than the Assured Soccer Profits system to suit my current needs. It won't be for everyone - it won't make you a millionaire and it does take hard work, despite what the creators claim - but it can certainly make you over 10k per year if you put the effort in.
The e-book is extensive and covers most scenarios and, though it does tend to look upon things a little more optimistically than realistically at times, it should set you up and prepare you for most outcomes. If that isn't enough there are a series of very instructive videos to help you along the way, all for a small price of £89. Bar. Gain.
Despite being in love with the theory, putting it into practice is always the tough bit. I have found it extremely helpful to write out every outcome and what to do in the event of each outcome, so that I am not fazed by what might come (quite a crucial element to success in this case). If anyone wants a copy of this to reference/compare with theirs/nose at, feel free to email me, though it is only a basic document so don't get excited. So far I have only had time to trade 2 games, but both have been successful. The first game was a lovely straightforward (great for confidence) 1-0 first half (this will mean something to people using the system) and I pocketed £4.47 profit (could've been higher but I was taking it easy for my first go). The second game was slightly harder - 0-0 at half time - but I managed to get rid of my liabilities and even won 95p.
As you can see from my results, the wins aren't massive, but this means the losses aren't either (if you do it properly). Also, when doing 6 or 7 of these a day (definitely feasible) the profits will soon stack up to a few hundred per week. Stakes can be increased but I will wait until I'm more confident before doing this. The only downfall I can see in this system is greed. It will be tempting at times to hold out for a slightly higher profit, especially when profit levels are so small, but it is key that I don't. As highlighted previously in this blog, my discipline and naivety has a potential to be my downfall and it is with this in mind that I have DO NOT GAMBLE written all over my notes a billion times. In reality, however, I don't see that I will have too much of a problem with this system, as the lure of £6 rather than £4 isn't going to interest me much. The key to it is small, consistent, regular, profit. And I know this.
This has been quite a rambly post but its mainly because I'm so excited by this new prospect (I get like this when I find something new to play with). To end it promptly then, and summarise: I fully recommend this product. I'm not going to be on the Forbes Rich List 2012 but its still a worthy addition to my portfolio. And when I say portfolio, its more of a folder with this system in it. And nothing else.
Any thoughts/opinions/experiences people using the system have had are more than welcome. I'm very keen to hear how people using it for a longer time than me have found it. For now though, back to the 'holiday' and the Lady Gaga 'impressionist'...

As for the new season, I am hoping I will be able to watch the opening fixtures over the weekend, especially after such a blistering Community Shield yesterday. I will not however be betting on the games, though I do have one recommendation of both teams to score in the Newcastle vs Arsenal match. If you're a fan of the Goals Galore coupon from Betfred, you might want to double this tip with both teams to score in the West Brom vs MUFC game for good odds.
Lastly, I am extremely interested in the new Assured Profits System which seems to be creating quite a buzz at the moment. The price tag is quite hefty but I have read a LOT of reviews and blogs on it and it seems to be quite effective. The general gist of the system is that it takes a lot of effort and careful planning to master, but once you have it sussed it can reward you greatly. I will be looking into and (probably) purchasing it after I return from holiday and I will keep a running diary going of how hard/profitable it is, so stay tuned for that! Also, if any has any advice/reviews of the ASP they would be greatly appreciated.
Until then, enjoy the season opening and good luck with any bets.

I haven't had/got much time to look at tomorrows games, but one game I do like the look of is in the Japanese League - G-Osaka vs Fukuoka 10am BST over 1.5 goals. At present the odds are very low, so I will leave it 20-25 mins for it to drift before backing it.
Hope you enjoyed the start to the new season. Long may this form continue.
Friday, 5 August 2011
J-League - Kashima vs Yamagata 10.30am BST over 1.5 goals
(If there are no goals after 10 minutes, I will lay the HT score of 0-0 for a small stake also).
J-League - Urawa vs Kobe 11am BST over 1.5 goals
(I will probably wait around 10-15mins before placing this bet).
English League One - Sheff Wed vs Rochdale 3pm BST over 1.5 goals
Finnish Veikkausliiga - FC Inter vs Jaro 4.30pm BST over 1.5 goals
English Championship - Southampton vs Leeds 5.20pm BST over 1.5 goals
Good luck all, hope you enjoy the new season.

Wednesday, 3 August 2011
Norwegian Division 1 - Honefoss vs Sandefjord 8pm BST over 1.5 goals
Brazilian Campeonato - Sao Paulo vs Bahia (Friday 5th) 1am BST over 1.5 goals
I did also want to bet on the Start vs Molde game going over 1.5 goals but, again, Betfair doesn't have an in play market for this game. Very odd and annoying as they have one for matches in the league below. Strange.
Good luck anyway
Today I have two selections:
Tip One - Lillestrom vs Tromso 5pm BST to be over 1.5 goals @ 1.25
Tip Three - Trabzonspor vs Benfica 7.45pm BST to be under 2.5 goals @ 1.93
Tuesday, 2 August 2011
Tomorrow (2nd August) I will be tipping in a friendly match which is unusual for me. Because of this I will not be placing a large stake on this and would advise anyone to keep their stakes low should they follow this tip. The tip is Crawley vs QPR to go over 1.5 goals at around 1.25.
I will also consider laying Copenhagen to win in Ireland in the Champions League Qualifying round, after a less than impressive 1-0 win last week in Denmark. Furthermore, Copenhagen had a game at the weekend whereas Shamrock had a weekend off. I expect that Copenhagen will win in the end but it will be hard for them, so will consider laying them to trade out later.
Goodnight and good luck all.

Yesterday was not so good unfortunately and I lost about £35 of the 86p fund, luckily not too much. I did say that I wasn't as confident about the two bets and that fear was soon realised. In the first bet of the day featuring Helsingborgs vs IFK Goteburg I recommended a lay of 0-0 as a half time score after about 15 minutes of play. I noted that I was not as confident about the over 1.5 so didn't bother taking that option. As it went, the game finished 2-1 after all second half goals, so rather disastrous. The 0-0 HT score lay is something new that I am testing and have only done it twice. After a near miss on Saturday from Molde and a failed Sunday, it is rather easy to feel downbeat about this system. I will, however, continue to persevere as I think it will be profitable in the long run. One defeat is a stupid thing to be pessimistic about.
In the other tip I gave, I was unimpressed with the starting price of over 1.5 goals so suggested waiting for it to drift before backing. Two early goals soon ruled that out meaning that tip was a NO BET. Ironically the two games I had for Finland were successful, but if I can't bet them on Betfair it is pointless as bookies just don't give the value. Today I noticed to my annoyance that there was a full market for the Finnish game playing, I have no idea why it picks specific games to have a full selection of bets on. If anyone can help me out with that one it would be appreciated.
I'm pretty busy this week so hopefully you will forgive me for irregular posts. I don't think I fancy anything tomorrow but I will have a closer look at the European games for midweek. Good luck with anything you try though. Bring on the weekend.
Swedish Allsvenskan - GAIS vs Halmstads over 1.5 goals
Good luck today.
