No football for today to get anything like involved with for me. Just going to vent a few frustrations arising from email. Obviously the FTS site has grown over this last few months with reviews, trials and a forum. All this was set up for the greater good and I firmly believe it serves that purpose.
To maintain the site as a one man band is a huge amount of work, far more than I ever envisaged often 5 or 6 in the morning to very late at night (just check post timings etc if you do not believe me). I just would like to clarify a few points. Firstly the trials that have become services over the course of this year, things such as Daves Lays, Lay Profits, HT/FT, Over Unders etc. These are purely optional services that you may or may not wish to join. They are operated by mostly long term FTS subscribers and I dispense the information for them after conducting trials on the blog for a minimum of 28 days. Had a lot of criticism about them but that will not stop me operating the trials and services as I believe they will form the foundation of any good portfolio for all gamblers.
What I am amazed at is the lack of knowledge of some gamblers and what they are getting into. I have maintained all my gambling life that people, (a) do not look to get rich quick and (b) understand fully what they are betting on and what they expect. Now if you wonder what spurs this message, I have had two people this week complain about results when they were backing the horses from Daves Lays and Lay Profits, I mean does the name of the services not give it away. I find it so depressing I have had moments this weekend reading mail where I have just felt like saying sod this, pack it in and go back to being a punter alone.
Nothing on here or anywhere else is going to get you rich quickly, gambling does not work like that, you win some then you lose a bit and different services have different amounts of risk and winning cycles. Horsebacks for example, if you had placed every bet he has had since the trial began you would be around £13,000 up. Every result has been sent out and those subscribing have seen every bet, price and stake. He will not win £13,000 every week or month. He will have weeks where he loses, weeks where he stands still and weeks where has winners at 25/1, 33/1 and 66/1 as he has had. It is those big winners that make the big profits but you have to understand that may only be a few weeks of the year and the rest of the time is small profits or small losses. The guy won over £85,000 last year and is about £30,000 up this year so he clearly knows his stuff, but you need to understand the cycles that type of betting involves.
Regarding FTS, that is not a paid for tipping service and never has been. There is a low cost one off cost for a manual that details a method and then I send every bet I PERSONALLY PLACE using that method. If people want to pay me £30 a month I will spend an hour a morning finding bets that you can place but I would not and I will rotate a hundred subs a month on a losing cycle. I am not going to bet much in the summer on football and if you want to bet everyday unsubscribe and go elsewhere, I want to win money and make profit not just bet every day. As part of your payment to that service you get my picks for life and any manual updates I send out after research at the end of each season.
That brings me onto my final point. I appreciate I am not the best writer in the world, but when I send an email to an elite member or FTS subscriber etc please read it fully. I am getting mail after mail from people where they reply to the email I send and what they want to know is in the email they have replied to. I get queries about things that have been covered on the blog, for example “Why have we not got the new manuals yet?”, BECAUSE THE SEASON HAS JUST FINISHED (Spanish Second Division finished this weekend) and it says 3 times on this blog that they will be out in July before the new season as well as being mentioned in emails sent, funnily enough I want a to win again next season so will do the necessary research/modifications etc and take a bit of time over it. I can cobble together any old manual today if people are in a rush and want to lump on the Icelandic second division game being played today.
Quite simply this is a serious set up, run by a very serious punter for people who want to make money gambling and many FTS subscribers are. It is a tremendous amount of work which any fees on this site fail to cover by a mile if I was working outside in the real world. It comes with 40-60 shite emails a day mostly from people who do not understand or have not read things. I know that following this site in its entirety will change certain peoples lives with the right mindset, I also know that when you open things up to thousands of people to read and comment on a fair percentage of them may be not what the service was set up for and you have to deal with that. I am fortunate I can walk away at any time and go back to punting for myself and a few select FTS members that I have formed a mentoring relationship and friendship with who know what I am about.
It is quite simple take your gambling seriously, read things thoroughly, understand what is involved and be willing to learn and you will win. Or sod off this site to the rest of the crap out there and continue to do your brains! As of today I have had enough but I will count to 10 chill out and continue!
