Apologies for the formatting on the last post. Blogger has changed the way posting works and I’ve not quite got to grips with it yet!
Just a quick update before tonight’s game. I managed to avoid any carnage at the weekend despite having so many bets. Bournemouth are trying their best to ensure the systems have a losing month and for the second week in a row, they’ve let a 1-0 lead slip when they have appeared on all 20 systems. I hadn’t noticed this until I was updating the results but Bournemouth were also a 7/22 bet the previous weekend against Bury! That’s 3 weeks in a row they’ve been a 7/22 bet and they’ve not managed to win any of the 3. Very frustrating.
Feel a little sorry for those only following system 7-22 as in the last 23 bets, they’ve only been on the loser four times. The draw has ensured that the system has had a losing month with the last 3 games finishing in draws.
I’ll do a proper results post tomorrow but it is actually quite interesting reading. As you know, I tend to place some emphasis on the monthly P&L. I know it doesn’t really mean anything but I’ve been really proud of the fact that the systems have shown great consistency over the last two seasons on a monthly basis.
Well, amazingly, this whole month hinges on the game tonight. If Man City win, the established systems and the new systems will have another profitable month. More importantly though, the combined systems also need a Man City win to finish the month in profit. These are the systems which are reported on by the SBC and at the moment, they have had a winning run of 6 profitable months. If Man City win, that becomes 7 straight monthly profits this season. If they don’t win, it will be a loss of 0.6pts on the month for these systems! :(
In a way, given system 7/22 lost this month, I sort of feel like the combined systems deserve to have a losing month. I’d feel a little bad saying it’s another profitable month, knowing that those who only follow 7/22 would have had a losing month. In addition, the established systems will have a had a profitable month, regardless of whether or not Man City win tonight. That means that the combined systems would then fall back into line with the established systems which would mean a profit in 13 of the 17 months to date.
Being honest, whether it’s 13 or 14 winning doesn’t really matter too much to anyone apart from me I suspect but I thought it was worth sharing!
