Letchworth Betjeman

Rob the Builder's blog is usually a good read, but he really has gone too far with his latest post.

He writes:

In the meantime I'll console myself that I've developed a fairly unique betting blog. Many blogs come and go when the task of winning is found to be harder than planned. Other blogs are written by the habitually successful. I've developed a fairly longstanding blog, yet have made bugger all for many months! The stubbornness of the Yorkshireman I suppose.
Am I the only one to notice that he produces not one shred of evidence to back up this claim to make 'bugger all'? The last screenshot he included on March 1st clearly shows a profit on the day, and anyway, as we all know, these screenshots can be easily faked.

It seems to me that these modest claims of 'under-achievement' only go to show that he's really a winner like the rest of us. Don't be taken in by this pretence of Rob being an honest guy regaling his ups and downs in the world of betting, even if his words are at times almost pornographic. This, from 19th February could have been ripped straight from the pages of Playboy:
And often I seem to have an ‘out-of-body’ experience when following women’s tennis. Part of my brain is telling me to lay low, but the instinct to back my selection is too powerful. By the time I finally regain control of my body, the odds have swung against me and I take a disgruntled all-red.

Great blog. Really enjoyed reading the past few posts especially as I'm new to the online gambling scene. Will definitely be back.

I agree with you Cassini Rob's a bit of a loser

Rob's a winner like the rest of us - he just claims to make 'bugger all'.
