Thanks to all who have replied.
I am hoping to make £1000 by xmas. I have my mate to advise me and I have been "going at it".
I have already joined 9 sites. I have finished 6 of them with a theoretical profit of ~£500. Xmas costs me a fortune so this is going to help me alot - once the bookies have sent me the money back.
TBH my mate has been finding the bets (well most of them) and then I put the bets on via my iphone where I can. But I do know the maths and how to find them. It's just when things go wrong where he is a huge help.
