Time for a break

I'm to sunny Cornwall again tomorrow for 2 weeks, so no further updates for a while.
Time is always too short for me, so I'll have another rethink about blogging.
Also will look at some new trading ideas off the excellent new Bet72 membership site. Full review when I get a mo.
Right off for some time with the wife and kids, ice cream, Carling Premiership and maybe the odd footy match.

August 7th 2009

After a fairly useful and productive day on the betting front on Tuesday, things have gone downhill since.
I rediscovered the bettorlogic site thanks to Twitter and discover shed loads of useful stats and ideas for selecting bets.
This plus a personal invite to check out the new BetSeventyTwo site gave me a lift towards the new season.
I've a quick look at the site and it looks impressive. Full review hopefully over the weekend.
Wednesday started bad and got worse. We'd been invited out to dinner so missed Celtic match and also work began to pile up.
Vastly running out of time to study any footy stats, Thursday became worse.
I then got home to find out that my eldest son might have swine flu.
He seems ok now, so hopefully will feel better for our hoiiday next weekend.
No rest or time on the laptop yesterday but hopefully back on track today. Free £100 bet available at Bet365 plus just signed up for free trial in August on
Got some GSI selections for tonight and will post over at other blog.
Ante post selections coming soon hopefully. Cheers.

August 4th 2009

Despite only 4 hours sleep again, feel a bit more chiper today.
Gave myself a kick up the ass and ploughed on with some more work on the ratings.
RFO out today and previewing Football League tips this week. Few interesting punts to be had. Leeds for Div 1 looks solid bet.
Few selections looked at for Friday's GSI tip which will post up by Thursday.
Blogging on Iphone giving me hand cramps, so that's enough for now.

August 3rd 2009

Come Friday evening the English footy season will be underway once again and the bets will on again.
I've been trying to get a rating system in place to point the way but as usual, time has been me.
The usual to'ing and fro'ing between system ideas has left me dazed and confused.
However the idea that has excited me the most is my GSI system.
I say system, there's no fancy calculations or solid info to point out winners but I'm hopeful in my ability to spot goal scorers.
I've created a seperate blog for the tips and here I will muse on daily betting thoughts.
I scraped some cash together and planning some anti posts to be revealed soon.
Some great coverage on Sir Bobby Robson passing away over the weekend and many fitting tributes. RIP Bobby.
