I didn’t do to many games last week as I ended up taking a break from using the system due to a lack of confidence and discipline. The loss of £30 the week before in the Leicester V Notts Forest game knocked my confidence and as a result I lost focus and panicked this week in both the Juventus and Valencia matches when they both went 2-0 up in the 1st half of their respective matches.
This ended up in quite a combined loss and I decided to leave the system alone for a few days, instead I ended up trying out new techniques and ultimately just recklessly gambling and losing money over the weekend. So it was a loss that created a knock on effect.
So over the course of Monday evening I have re-watched some of the videos explaining the system in an attempt to get me back on track and also to maybe remind me of things I have forgotten when it comes to trading the system. I also needed to look into ways of how to react better when a game goes 2-0 early in the first half, instead of my recent disasters.
I have now decided to put a limit of £20 on every game I trade for the immediate future. I know this will result in smaller wins, but it will obviously result in smaller losses and it should help prevent panic from setting in if things start to go wrong. It also gives me the chance to slowly rebuild confidence and belief in the system.
I have to be honest and admit I did start to doubt the system, but watching the videos again has showed me that the problem is me and my discipline rather than the system that was wrong.
For example, I was getting two of the most basic things of all wrong. First I was laying differing amounts, it might be £30 on one game and £60 on the next, that’s one of the main reasons why I have decided to set a maximum amount for the immediate future, something which you are advised to do in the videos.
The second point kind of relates to the first point, but could be interpreted as greed and lack of discipline also. As I pointed out, I was laying some games at £30 and some at £60. Why? Well down to trying to win big, in other words, greed. This is another basic failing that has to stop.
Anyway, I’ve had a good long hard think about things and topped up my betting bank yet again and have decided to give it another go. As I said, I’ve imposed a maximum amount to trade (yes,trade – not bet) on each match, and I will be watching the videos over and over again this week to try and improve my use of the system.
One further point I’d like to make is that John Duncan has announced that he will be closing membership to the system to new members fairly soon. I don’t know why he is doing this, he said in the email that it is so he can concentrate on the website and on the system’s existing members which is great for us already using the system, but I do find it a touch strange as it sounds like it is a good seller.
So why stop selling something that’s apparently making money? Doesn’t make sense to me, but it’s not my system to sell. Maybe it will come back again in a few months with improvements and be re-branded, I don’t know.
So if anyone reading this is considering buying the system, it might be worth investing sooner rather than later.
