Hi there, enjoying following the blog, im a big fan of maths service also know the serious work he puts in. A question if you dont mind - i have seen you state that you dropped blue sky and would never use them again, was that just because of poor results or are there other factors involved ?
Good luck and hope the rewards come your way.

hi mate,

Poor results were the major factor in my decision.

However the way the service was operated and the guy who runs it, David Lyons, were also big considerations.

Tips were given out on their website, which regularly crashed - often before the advised time the bets were supposed to be given, which meant the prices had gone by the alloted time to log on or ring in arrived.

They took on a number of new subscribers around April last year, including me, as a result of Paul Jones joining forces with them. However the results were poor, and Lyons treated those who dared to complain on his forum to various foul mouthed rants about having the temerity to complain about his "wonderful" service, and how much he had won in previous years, and stories of his great successes going back years blah blah blah, before he closed the forum down.

Also there was very little evidence of any of the input from Paul Jones - which was why I joined in the first place.

The final straw was when Paul Jones resigned, and I never followed them again.

Their results on their website show that while they have steadied the ship somewhat since last summer, however they are nowhere near covering the £2000 per year subscriptions, indeed from the end of April last year when I joined until now, they have produced a profit of £865 to their advised prices which are not always achievable. This is despite their much trumpeted claim of 3 20/1 winners in the last year. If you happen to have missed one of those, then you would be showing a loss.
