not many updates this month so far. Summer has arrived and I try to avoid spending time in front of the computer.

However, I am still doing the selections and this month has been a bad one so far.


Currently we are facing a loss of 7 points, but as you can see there has been a big down swing.

We investigated the selection process again and we identified a bug in the software. Resolved the problem.

Still a few days to get back into profit zone. Will update again at the end of the month.

Cheers, Loocie


Germany – Spain 0:1


I am not in the happiest mood, because yesterday we lost the semi final of the World Cup 2010 against Spain.

I am not disappointed, I am sad that our team could not perform their best. Spain won the match well deserved and I hope they can win the Cup on Sunday.

I also want to mention that I am proud of our team: They gave us so many great moments and if we lose against a better team we need to accept that.

Cheers, Loocie


Argentina – Germany 0:4


what an incredible match it was versus Argentina! It is hard to describe what I am feeling right now. It feels a little unreal, but it is cool :)

I watched the match in the same location I watched the match versus England and again it was amazing! What a really stunning performance from Germany and I am so happy we made the semi final again.

It is great to see, that it does not matter if you have a few super stars in your team like Messi, Ronaldo, etc. Football is still a team sport and if you play as a team you can beat every other team which only relies on the performance of their super stars.

Cheers, Loocie


June Roundup


June is over and I will take the time to give an update how I did.

The semi manual HorstBecker produced a total profit of 64.74 points, which is ok.


After last months performance I expected to get more out of it, but I can not complain.

I am progressing on the football value system. The database model is already created and I will start coding the other components and the user interface. I am not yet sure if I will create an AJAX based application or a common web site, because the aim is to make the web based system available for mobile devices, too. So it can be used without having a laptop or pc available. This month I bought a HTC HD2 mobile device which is a great device. I like the idea to get a notification via email or SMS from the system when new selections are available and place the bets via mobile device.

I will keep you updated.

Cheers, Loocie
