I received an interesting email yesterday from John Duncan of the Assured Soccer Profits system with a testimonial included which got me thinking about my football trading and how I could enhance it further.
Over the past two and a half months I have been conducting my own Pre Match Trading experiment with (in my opinion) very good results. I have just about doubled my starting betting bank and I haven’t recorded one weeks losses yet, every week has seen a profit so far.
Now I’m not getting complacent and saying that I am the finished article with Pre Match Trading, as I know I’m not. I still have a hell of a lot to learn and I fully intend on sticking to my plan of learning the process inside out, and patiently and slowly trying to make a modest profit of around 5%-8% a week (on betting bank).
One area in which I am more than happy with this football season is my discipline. I can’t believe how restrained I have been and how I have resisted the urge to look for ‘the quick buck’ while using this system.
The email I referred to at the start of this blog post (about Assured Soccer Profits) also eluded to not expecting to get rich quick (in the testimonial). It mentioned a chap (called Nick) who claimed to have spent several months learning how to get to grips with Assured Soccer Profits, and how he now uses it as his main source of income.
It got me thinking about my time using Assured Soccer Profits, and how I managed to make a profit with it, despite never really using it properly.
When I was using it I was looking to make X amount every week, I would look for bigger wins by not implementing the system properly, I would take short cuts, I wouldn’t trade out at the recommended exit points when things weren’t going right and I didn’t select my games in a very smart way (I basically used it on any game I felt like using it on).
And like I said, I still managed to make a profit.
I have spent the last 24 hours wondering how I might have fared using Assured Soccer Profits had I used the same level of patience and discipline I have shown during my pre match trading experiment, or if I had used it in more of an experimental way rather than crashing in and expecting (hoping) to earn a living off it from Day 1.
Would I now be seeing positive results if I was patient and had done things properly?
All this has made me decide to start the process off again. I have been re-reading some of the information and re-watching some of the videos in the Assured Soccer Profits members area, and as a result I am going to put £50.00 aside in my Betfair account (£50 Free Bet currently available to new accounts) and use it just for Assured Soccer Profits and see how I get on.
I’m not going to look to win big, it’s going to be a patient disciplined experiment based on percentage profit, following the method properly, and I will see how I get on over the next few weeks. I want to learn the system properly this time, no short cuts. I plan to stick with the experiment and try to build my bank slowly.
