It was a profitable day on Saturday but we were also left wondering what might have been had Man United grabbed a winner at Stoke. A grand won from a fiver – that’s what!
First of all, the Win 5fold landed at 17/2 giving us a 19 point return and some 4-4-2 System profit!
I also tipped up a Watford win away at Southampton at 9/2 and they obliged with a comfortable victory.
The real story of Saturday was the 209/1 Lucas Joao, in which three of the legs won leaving the bet needing just a United victory and BTTS in the late kick off to land.
Myself and a number of followers managed to cash out for some serious profit before and during the United game but unfortunately the win didn’t come.
Cashed the 209/1 at half time and returned £197 off 2 quid. I love you

Two late first half goals meant the teams went in at the break evenly poised at 1-1, which was perfect for us.
I wasn’t able to watch the game because I was on the train back to London after watching an extremely drab display from Villa in a 0-0 draw against Brentford, in which we were lucky to get a point.
Managed to cash out for £81!! Brilliant day! #bookiebashing

There was euphoria when Romelu Lukaku gave United a 2-1 lead just before the hour, but it lasted just six minutes. Sadly, it stayed like that and the game ended 2-2.
Despite making great profit from cash outs, they won’t be reflected in the profit and loss figures for the 4-4-2 System. It was so close to being a 104.5 point winner!

As I predicted on Thursday, Harry Kane got back to scoring ways in September – why oh why did I drop him from my fantasy football team?! – and my 20/1 pre-season tip for Player of the Year, Kevin De Bruyne, put in a brilliant display as Man City thrashed Liverpool 5-0.
I also dropped him from my team, and brought in Sadio Mane! At least I captained my 9/1 Premier League top scorer tip Gabriel Jesus, who netted twice, giving him three for the season, one off Lukaku at the summit.
In other positive news, my ante-post Championship top scorer tip Britt Assombalonga netted twice for Middlesbrough, putting him on four for the season, joint top of the charts with a number of other players.
We were just two goals away from the 27/1 Handicap Treble winning. Leeds did their bit in a 5-0 dismantling of Burton but Wolves and Charlton could only win 1-0 and 2-1 against Millwall and Southend respectively.
We were only two legs away from landing the Over 1.5 goals acca. Yeovil and Cheltenham, and Newport and Wycombe somehow played out 0-0 draws, despite being involved in plenty of goals so far this season.
These two shock results also cost me the 19/2 Over 2.5 goals 4fold.
There’s loads of football on this week, starting with tonight’s clash between a struggling West Ham and impressive Premier League newcomers Huddersfield, and there are two bets I like the look of.
The first is my 40/1 outsider tip for Premier League top scorer, Javier Hernandez, to score first at 9/2 (Sky Bet – bet HERE), and the second is a huge 28/1 on Huddersfield’s Aaron Mooy to score from outside the box.
The Champions League returns on Tuesday and there is a full Championship, League One and League Two fixture schedule so I will bring you a bonus Tuesday edition of the 4-4-2 System!
