“Did you book a birthday place?”

Reporting from Bet Chat HQ, north London…

An Italian restaurant…

A table for 20…

Outdoor seating, next to the harbour, in 30 degree heat…

No, not a mad, alcohol induced, fever dream but the reality of Bet Chat Bec’s Gold Coast birthday plans this month.

I’ll sure you’ll all join me in wishing her a lovely day. Hmph.

Is your name Richard, Glenn or David?

If so, then you may not have access to the Aussie sun/freedoms, but you may have won a prize courtesy of the Bet Chat Fantasy Football League…

Richard Riley’s ‘A Step Too VAR’ scored the most points in January, while Glenn Herriott’s ‘The wizard of oz il’ and David Fugill’s ‘LitOrange’ finished joint third.

There’s no such thing as a stupid question

So get them in!

We’ve secured access to a bonafide cryptocurrency expert and later this week he’ll be answering your questions.

This is a fascinating investment area that has now been going for long enough to suggest it’s no flash in the pan. I certainly have plenty of questions for him, and it would be great to get as many as possible in from you too.

Feel free to ask anything and everything by emailing clients@thebetchat.com.

“It was an ordeal”

Reporting from Bet Chat HQ, north London…

Last night, Bet Chat Bec spent three hours building a set of drawers. It’s fair to say that they weren’t the best three hours of her life…

At this point I want to make it clear that the three hour ordeal was no fault of her own, but the fault of shoddy instructions and, on a Friday afternoon, that’s more than good enough a tale for me to turn into a vaguely betting related email.

Was it your fault?

When following a tipster or betting strategy it can be pretty easy to point the figure when things go wrong, but before walking off in a huff ask yourself: whose fault is it really?

A surprisingly large amount of the time the issues are caused by something entirely avoidable – not reading the instructions properly.

Did you fail to put the recommended betting bank in place?

Did you fail to follow the recommended stakes?

Did you fail to take best prices to such an extent that you were leaving big chunks of profit behind?

Did you simply read a tip/system step wrong and bet on the wrong things?

Did you not read the instructions at all and try to wing it?

Before having a go at the tipster/system creator and/or giving up on the strategy, make sure that the answer to those questions isn’t yes…

User guides and the like are there for a reason so, if you want to get the best from any service, read ‘em!

Was it their fault?

Of course, as with Bet Chat Bec, it may actually be that it was the tipster/system creator’s fault…

Are the instructions confusing or contradictory?

Is the tipster failing to stick to their own strategy?

Do the selections not make logical sense/is the tipster unable to justify them?

Do you suspect the past results (or display product when it comes to our DIY metaphor) were artificially and unrealistically tarted up?

If the answer to any of those questions is yes, and if the tipster/system creator can’t give you a good answer to your questions (and do always ask if you’re unsure – they can’t help you if you don’t ask), then yes, I imagine it is their fault and you should probably move on.

“Harry Kane…

“Cristiano Ronaldo…

“Lionel Messi…

“ummmmmmm Jonathan Kimmich?

“And that guy I thought was a rugby player” (she means Wayne Rooney)

“That’s three hours of my life I won’t get back”

Reporting from Bet Chat HQ, south west London…

Today I’m going to make you a promise…

No matter how big Bet Chat gets, when you contact our customer services team, I will never ever make it nigh on impossible for you to speak to a useful human being.

I say that as somebody who earlier spent two hours on hold with NatWest, after going through a torturous automated process, only to be told by the human being I was finally connected to, that she had to forward me through to a different team that currently had a… wait for it… two hour queue.

And guess what? The tale of woe didn’t end there.

Having been told it would be another two hours or so, I left my phone in the living room on loudspeaker and went and had a shower…

All of 20 minutes later I returned from the shower to discover that… wait for it… the call had been answered in record time and the person, not receiving a reply from myself, had hung up.

On an entirely related note, if you do so happen to be a business account manager for a UK based bank and would like our custom, please do get in touch.

Is your name Jon or Francis?

If not, feel free to close this email now, but thanks for reading!

If it is however, you may well have won September prizes in the Bet Chat Fantasy Football League.

Jon Wilson finished first and Francis Connell finished second. 

If that’s you, claim your prize by emailing clients@thebetchat.com. This is your second and final reminder.

“I’m going to throw myself in the Thames”

Reporting from Bet Chat HQ, south west London…

I really hate computers.

Today is Football Index Intelligence newsletter day, which consists of me editing the copy that I receive from Adam Gibbs, and sending it to Bet Chat Bec who makes it look pretty.

Sounds simple doesn’t it?

Only today my computer decided to save two versions of the newsletter, both with exactly the same file name, but one with my edits made and one without.

This resulted in me sending the wrong version to Bec, who got halfway through laying it out before realising and having to start all over again.

Cue swearing.

I then opened the correct file which decided, for no apparent reason, to overwrite itself with the original, unedited file.

Cue more swearing and threats to top myself in the river.

Why would a computer do these things? What crazed developer decided that it was a good idea to be able to have two files with exactly the same name on a device, one that auto saves and one that does not? What possible benefit does that provide?

Anyway, that’s my rant for the day over. Thank you for listening.

August’s fantasy football winners

With all of August’s Premier League action now completed, we now know two things for certain…

  1. Liverpool are head and shoulders above everyone else (who’d have thought, given they won the league by a country mile just a few short weeks ago…)
  2. Who our first monthly Bet Chat Fantasy Football winners are

In first place, and the winner of a free one month subscription to racing service, Improvers, is Jon Wilson with his team, 11KneelingSlaves.

In second place, and the winner of £15 of Bet Chat credit is Francis Connell and his team, Deganwy X1.

Congrats to Jon and Francis! To claim your prizes, please email me at clients@thebetchat.com.

As for my own start to the season, poor doesn’t do it justice. But you know what they say… it’s not how you start, it’s how you finish 😉.
