Koptalk Insiders nowhere to be seen as Liverpool add to the squad

Liverpool FC today announced they have reached an agreement to sign Oussama Assaidi from Heerenveen, subject to the player passing a medical.

This transfer came out of the blue as it’s not been mentioned anywhere in the media or on the internet as far as we can see.

The members of koptalk are paying to get information before anyone else, but they never do. Not in this case either. The only mention of the player before the news broke was from a member who mentioned Fulham wanted to sign him and another player more than two months ago. That was all. The imaginary koptalk insiders was nowhere to be seen. If you belive what Dunk says about who his sources are, you have to wonder why they knew nothing about this transfer. Why didn’t Informer pop up with his usual “money is being transfered” shite as he does when a player is looking nailed on to sign in a few days? Last year he was banging on with this for what must have been a month before we actually signed Adam. Every time it looked like it was about to happen he came out with that story. But not now. Not a word. Why is that? The simple answer is; “Dunk didn’t pick this up from the media”.

Jordan Henderson transfer rumours

There have been rumours going around the internet at various times that Liverpool are interested in signing Jordan Henderson from Sunderland. About a week ago it emerged again as rumours started circulating on twitter that Liverpool was in for Henderson, and even some rumours we had made a bid and had it accepted. One koptalk member posted this in the forums, but the thread was closed swiftly by Dunk, saying members should not post info from twitter. He also dismissed the rumours and said “Liverpool are not negotiating with the player’s club today. Liverpool have scouted the player several times but today’s claims are untrue and should be dismissed at this time.”

Dunk's "inside" source revealed

One of the things Dunk does to make it look like he has inside information, is taking news from other websites, add his own spin, and post it as “Koptalk News”.

Today he came up with this: Read the rest of this entry »

Is the Koptalk Conman looking for a last big payout?

So the new free site that was supposed to be lauched in early June, late June, July, August, September 10th and September 28th is now IMMINENT? How long will it be imminent? A month? A year? A decade? You’ll never know with Dunk. He’ll probably put up the old one at some point, with a few design changes to make it look new. Read the rest of this entry »

The Truth – Koptalk still supports The Sun

No updates for a few days? Well with Koptalk and its owner Dunk now banned from News Now and most Reds well aware of what a con-artist he is there’s been a little bit less urgency I suppose. Personally I’ve had a few days of being busy and tired. Then the laptop decided to “blow up”. Actually it stopped working, needed taking to bits and then needed a touch of soldering on a dodgy part, before being put back together. A pain in the arse but nothing too bad. Dunk once claimed his laptop “blew up” – taking with it the almost finished “Anfield Exposed”. That’s the book he claims will lift the lid on all kinds of shameful happenings at LFC, the club he pretends to support. That’s not all he pretends about though – there is no book, never was, never will be. It’s just another item on the Kon list.

Congratulations to all involved at Anfield yesterday in getting “The Truth” to such a large audience. Well in Motty too – the fact you drew attention during the live commentary to the mosaic and the reasons it was there, alongside the chanting, was to be applauded, particularly considering it was your employers who were being criticised. Kelvin MacKenzie is scum and admitted quite happily that he knew he was printing lies when he said Liverpool fans pissed on their fellow supporters at Hillsborough. Kelvin MacKenzie should not be employed by any company or corporation that has any kind of concern about its customers or users. The BBC employed the liar, with public money, and deserve to be fined for it, deserve to have money taken away for it. Kelvin MacKenzie enjoys rubbing salt into wounds that 17 years on are still very much open – and whoever employed him should be sacked, on the spot.

This blog started off, as I’ve said many times before, as a bit of a laugh. A way of sharing with “outsiders” just what you got for your £30 as a member of the “Insider” and “Gold Club” – in particular the transfer gossip that was mainly stolen or fabricated. Additionally, one thing that had got my back up quite a bit prior to starting the blog was Dunk’s attitude towards The S*n. Kelvin MacKenzie was of course the editor of The Sun when he decided to help the South Yorkshire Police deflect the blame for their murderous actions by printing those lies. Like many Reds, perhaps nearly all Reds, I feel a deep sense of revulsion the more I think about that article. How much of a part that played in the prevention of justice ever coming for the 96 is hard to say, but it must be significant.

I can’t bear to see people read the Sun, as I occasionally do when I see people from outside Liverpool. I’m talking about people who aren’t Liverpool fans, about people who may not even be football fans. It might be people sat in a waiting room, on a train, in the pub, in a work environment. If I get speaking to them I point out why The Sun is so bad, and some people are genuinely surprised to hear about it. They didn’t know The Sun had, thanks to Kelvin MacKenzie, helped South Yorkshire Police spread a lie about Liverpool fans so that they could try and make it look like they’d done nothing wrong, that drunken fans were to blame. Great big disgusting lies, and MacKenzie is still proud of them.

What upsets me more about people reading The Sun is that some Liverpool fans don’t feel they need to tell younger Liverpool fans just what the boycott is all about. Or they play it right down, like it’s not important. Like it’s just political and too heavy. Well it is important. I read articles on other sites where the lowest of the low are saying some quite disgusting things about Hillsborough. A lot of this comes from fans of clubs like Manchester United – but it’s actually the exception rather than the norm. A lot of Manchester United fans are disgusted too. If Liverpool fans can’t put their younger fellow Reds fans right about the boycott, what hope is there that this minority of Manchester United fans won’t become a majority over time? An 18-year-old Red may not know about Hillsborough and The Sun – but they should only need telling once. And Koptalk is not a place to learn about the boycott, or to learn about Hillsborough.

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingDuncan Oldham has decided to start using the latest coverage of the protest, “The Truth” to try and make himself look like a Liverpool fan after all. Yet anyone reading this blog knows that he despises the boycott. He pays to have The Sun delivered to his home every day. He wore a hat in summer 1998 which carried a “The Sun” logo, and after carefully smudging the logo in Photoshop he put it on his site. He used Photoshop later too with the same image, superimposing his own fat head onto the body of a Liverpool player. In May 1998 he was talking on Usenet about how the boycott might be extended to also include The Mirror, yet in July he was wearing that Sun hat in France, and getting someone to take a photo of him wearing it. He later lied about why he was wearing it, saying he didn’t know about the boycott!

A lot of his stories we found during the writing of this blog came from The Sun. It was quite a simple test to see how he did this. A story would appear on his site that we’d not seen anywhere else. I’d go onto Google News and search for the names mentioned in his story. Google News would show it had originated in The Sun. No need to read The Sun’s website for the story, Google News did enough to prove to me that’s where he’d got it from. How can any Liverpool supporter buy The Sun? How can any Liverpool supporter take stories from The Sun’s website? He doesn’t even have the decency to remove the gossip from The Sun that MacKenzie’s BBC employers include in the column Dunk steals from them.

Duncan Oldham is a Sun-loving piece of scum, and no amount of belated use of the campaign for “The Truth” will change that. If you’re reading this blog for the first time, please don’t take my word for it. There’s is evidence all through this blog about how Oldham loves The Sun. See “SUN-lovers” for an example of how he was paid by The Sun for advertising them on his site. There’s more about that issue at “The Sun comes up yet again at Koptalk HQ“. There’s an old one here – “Koptalk admit daily Sun delivery” too. There’s also “A deleted thread” about what happened when someone tried to point out the boycott to others.

You might find this article is the most revealing – “Response to Oldham” – one where Dunk tries to defend his policy towards The Sun (he was deleting threads if anyone tried to let other members know about the boycott). It was shortly after this that he made up his story about Peter Crouch talking to The Sun, claiming he was going to end Crouch’s LFC career using the tape he had of the interview!

Dunk had visitors on his site for most of the above incidents. His free forums were still thriving. He should have been educating his members, or allowing his members to educate other members, about the boycott. He didn’t want to though – it didn’t suit him. He’d been caught reading The Sun. It had been pointed out how he’d used that Sun hat during France ’98. He had to try and play down the boycott so that his members would think the blog was over-reacting. Like the boycott was a load of crap, promoted by “militants”. The Crouch tape was part of this – we’d proved his love for The Sun, he was trying to make out that was OK!

So why is he now promoting Saturday’s “The Truth” protest? Because he’s desperate for hits, desperate for members. He’s put a video on You Tube of the first six minutes of the game – but he’s made sure he’s emblazoned “Koptalk.coN” right in the middle of it. Desperately hoping other fan sites will put the link on their site and in doing so make it look like Koptalk is part of the LFC “family”. His stolen photos of the protest (stolen from national press photo agencies) are also emblazoned with the tarnished Koptalk.coN name. Again – he wants them spread in the hope people will think KopTalk is for Liverpool fans. Koptalk isn’t for Reds though – Koptalk is for Duncan Oldham. It’s to make him money, and he doesn’t give a shit how he makes it. He doesn’t boycott The Sun himself, he buys it every day and uses its stories as if they are his own. Don’t fall for it, Duncan Oldham still loves The Sun, still admires Kelvin MacKenzie.

Please – Boycott The Sun Loving Koptalk.coN.

And don’t let the BBC get away with employing MacKenzie, and please don’t let the quest for Justice for the 96 ever stop until they get that justice.

"Liverpool" site's £20m defender claim not what you'd think

Wondering who Liverpool’s £20m defender is? If you read Koptalk’s latest misleading headline then you’d probably be thinking that Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez had put that price onto one of our players. But no, it’s a price tag on someone else’s player, and the headline was designed to attract hits from people who think the word “Kop” in a website title means it’s a Liverpool website. In reality the “KopTalk” website is run by a former Leeds United fan who currently owns a Newcastle United season ticket and gets most of his transfer exclusives from the S*n or the Newcastle Evening Chronicle. The rest he makes up or steals from other LFC sites, without any acknowledgement, even claiming he’s got his own contacts inside the club!

£20million price tag slapped on defender

Clubs interested in recruiting Micah Richards will have to stump up £20million, so say his club Manchester City.

The teenage right-back who can also play in the centre of defence, has seen his valuation rocket following serious interest from Chelsea and that’s bad news for the likes of ourselves, Arsenal and Spurs who are all keen on signing him.

Manchester United are also keen on the youngster but Sir Alex has reportedly been told that funds will be there to compete with Chelsea if the Old Trafford boss wants to push ahead with a formal offer.

Expect more of the same from Koptalk next month – the transfer windows are  the busiest times of year for Koptalk, the times of year where they can make up more and more misleading headlines in an attempt to Kon people into parting with £30 for “insider” news.

Koptalk have no contacts at the club at any level. That includes gatemen, who aren’t going to be so easily bribed by the fat Konman. (In the summer, Oldham claimed to have persuaded a gateman, through the gateman’s brother, to become the latest member of the payroll for Koptalk. He of course hadn’t spoken to any gateman’s brother, and of course has no payroll of insiders and informers to add the gateman too. On the same day he claimed he’d got the painters at Anfield ringing him up with the identities of everyone who arrived at Anfield – he was at Melwood at the time. He also claimed he was set to move into Chris Waddle’s £300,000 home overlooking Melwood. Yes, that Chris Waddle. The Geordie one who’s never played for any of the Merseyside teams.)

As well as making up transfer stories to get people to part with £30, Dunk has spent a good amount of the last few years selling fake “signed” merchandise, and launching dubious “charity” appeals. Earlier this year he was combining the two, selling footballs with the most laughable of fake signatures on them for £100, similarly fake shirts for over £200, FA Cup final tickets (not fakes) for £1600 a pair – all supposedly for the benefit of his disabled cousin Lauren. Lauren never saw more than a token amount of what was collected at the beginning. Tens of thousands of pounds had been taken from Liverpool fans by the Koptalk Konman. Even now, in full knowledge of the accusations we’ve made, Oldham hasn’t yet confirmed that any of the money found its way to Lauren. Send him an email at support@koptalk.com and ask him what happened to the money. He’ll tell you to ask Lauren!

Just as we got closer to Christmas he launched an appeal for Alder Hey. Surely he couldn’t be about to rip people off again, not in full view of this blog with its thousands of daily visitors. We were worried about him asking for all donations to be paid straight into the Koptalk paypal account instead of him setting something separate up. At the same time I hoped this was finally a sign that he wanted to put things right, start offering something back from all his past cons and thefts.

After failing to show any receipts, after hiding the evidence of who’d donated what and how much it came to, after hiding his list of what he’d claimed to spend his money on, the whole lot was deleted from his forum. No mention of it, no sign of it, and I reported this in my last post on here.

But then I thought I’d got it wrong, I thought I’d missed the latest home of the Koptalk Alder Hey Appeal.

This appeal had first appeared as a sub-forum of its own, under the “Executive Lounge’ bit of the tumbleweed-infested Koptalk members’ site.

Then it moved to be a sub-forum of its own, this time under the “Chill Out Room” section of the same very quiet website.

All along there’d be different, important, threads related to the appeal disappearing on Dunk’s whims. Threads that showed evidence of how the money had come in. Members would leave a message saying how much they had pledged, “Katie” would list each pledge, then when it was received would show how much came through after the Pay Pal charges had gone out. Those threads were deleted as soon as it got close to the time to add it all up.

Later the forum was deleted altogether, and Dunk put just the threads he wanted his readers to see, and put them in various places throughout his site.

As we got closer to Christmas the only thread left for his members to see showed an email from Alder Hey and some photos from the “Imagine Appeal” offices at Alder Hey. More importantly was a promise that the receipts from the purchases would be scanned in and put onto the site, “over Christmas”. The fact that these receipts were, according to previous promises by Dunk, supposed to have been handed straight to Alder Hey “for guarantee purposes” at the same time as the goods were handed over was just another example of how Dunk continually goes back on his word without explanation.

On Christmas Eve all references to the appeal were removed, as far as I could tell.

The idiot running Koptalk, Duncan Oldham, had spent a week pretending to be in New York, when he was clearly still in Wallsend. Yet he couldn’t be arsed to spend five minutes scanning in those receipts to prove how he’d done all of this above board for the first time in his Internet life.

This morning I looked at the site and spotted this…

More hiding by the Konman

So the forum is almost certainly still there, just hidden from members.

What are you hiding Duncan?

Surprise pie for Liverpool-hating domain thief

Newer readers of the blog may not be aware of one of the subjects we’ve not covered for a while. Cyber-squatting.

This article is a brief pointer to the existing article we have on it here – Cyber Squatter. Read that page and you will see the long list of domain names “stolen” over the years by Duncan Oldham in an attempt to drive traffic back to his site.

He buys alternative domain names that morally don’t belong to him. Legally too in many cases. Like the “.co.uk” version of a site that’s using “.com” for its address. He sometimes pointed them to the genuine site for a while, taking them back again to point to either his own site or a pathetic holding page instead on a whim. Or shortly after being “attacked” by that “rival” site. Earlier this year we all had to hold back laughter when we found ourselves redirected from one of these stolen domain names.

He’d set up a holding page, called it “lol.html” (comic genius) and had a picture of a pie on a table with the title of the page set to “You’ve been pied” (outstanding talent). Some nonsense about looking after members when they’ve been spammed was written alongside it. I forget the details because it was just standard Dunkie Drivel.

This list of pinched domain names is long. One of the gems is http://www.kraptalk.co.uk – he bought this in recognition of the original Koptalk spoof site, www.kraptalk.com.

The most recent ones were this summer when he took alternative (and highly unlikely to be used) names for the www.est1892.com website. The site had just launched yet he felt it was ok to take these names and point them at his crap joke. That site has just celebrated getting its 2000th registered user, quite some going really. As far as I know he didn’t bother trying with www.sixcrazyminutes.com, which is now up to over 500 members in a short space of time.

Have a read of “Cyber Squatter” for the full list, including some that might be a surprise.

But first, please, have a look at a domain name that doesn’t belong to him. It used to, but he’s let it slip out of his greasy palms. It used to be home to his “Insider” site at one time in the distant past. No more.

Please visit – www.koptalk.tv – and enjoy the thought of Duncan’s face as he also visits and spits his five-sugars cup of coffee all over his computer screen.

Duncan Oldham – You’ve Been Pied. L O L !

* A big thank you to the blog supporting Liverpool fan who bought the domain and set all of this up. You know who you are – thanks from most web-reading Liverpool fans. Maybe Dunk will hand over the others now?

Comp for tickets could help Reds fans spread the word

The night before last I managed to post on here about the departure of Johhny H without realising his exit had already been covered by Sawyer Insider. After days of reading all about coffee and TV (mainly coffee though) I’d not wanted to waste any time in getting the news onto the blog. I went straight to the page for new posts, and only saw Sawyer’s post later.

Tonight I nearly did it again. Two juicy bits of Duncanisms in one night. Dunk thinks his site is big, but he doesn’t base it on hits, he bases it on the fact that we blog about him. Before I could write something about how he got it wrong in so many ways, I found Sawyer Insider had already got it covered. All I can add is that Dunk says he doesn’t “see players as heros now” – well we knew this already Oldham. A few weeks back you were saying you’d be happy if Anfield was knocked down and replaced by an Asda, and that rather than being a Liverpool fan you are just a neutral, or impartial. Maybe that’s what it is. Maybe what’s happened is that you supported Leeds as a kid, Liverpool in your early twenties, Newcastle in your late twenties, and now as you head towards your mid-thirties you’ve given up pretending and don’t support anyone.

Thanks to Sawyer for getting that on the site tonight though, I hope everyone enjoyed it.

The other bit of classic Oldham pea-brained stupidity for today was when he shot himself in the foot yet again. In fact he blew both his legs off this time. All our recent efforts to persuade his honorary members to leave his site were wasted. We didn’t need to say a word. He’s done it for us. Or at least he claims he has. Thanks to Rupert this time for spotting it and getting onto the site. The main contributions on his site these days are from Honorary Members, but now he says he’s ditched them all unless they’ve paid. Then again, he’s claimed he’s done this before, so why’s he doing it again? Was it bullshit last time? Is it bullshit this time? Are the honorary members really being removed? (It’s not quite true of course to say honorary members are the only members contributing heavily to his site. The real heavy posters now are Dunk, Steve and Katie.)

I’ve said a few times now that Duncan Oldham does not have season tickets for Anfield. He claims he has them, but he hasn’t. He did have them once, he used to go in the “Flat Iron” near the ground because people have told me they used to see him – but that was years ago. He doesn’t dare show his face there now of course.

So either he’s dumped the tickets altogether, or he touts the chance to use them just like he touts certain cup tickets. The waiting list for season tickets is long – people will pay to jump the queue, and Dunk likes the idea of people who’ll pay over the odds for things.

At the moment though he can’t do that too openly. He can’t possibly let his tickets go through an auction on Koptalk or eBay like he’s done in the past. If he’s got season tickets (and it’s a big “if”) then he sold those secretly. For cup tickets he’s decided to give them away in “competitions”. And the poor winner of this latest one, for a Carling Cup tie, gets to sit with Katie. Yes, Katie…


COMPETITION: Go to the Arsenal match with Katie!

Fancy attenting the Liverpool v Arsenal match with us (free) on Tuesday 19th December (7.45pm)? Ok.. well read on.

JMG went to the last match with Steve but this time we’re going to send Katie and Steve although the winner will be sat with Katie only as Steve will be in one of the boxes as he has his own invite. Now she’s only 18 so you have to behave yourself if you win!

The last winner (JMG) flew in from Sweden and Steve picked him up from Manchester airport, so if you are coming from overseas, we might be able to assist in collecting you and dropping you off.

Now to enter this competition all you have to do is predict the time of the first goal – by either side – in minutes and seconds from the match between Liverpool and Galatasaray on 5th December. In the event of no goal we will go by the first corner (the exact second the player takes it).

Your entry will look like this:

xx minutes xx seconds

The winner will receive a free match ticket, free programme, free slap up meal and drinks (from the chip shop) and our excellent company ;)

All you need to do is reply to this thread. We will post the winning time after the match is played and it’s up to you to work out if you’re a winner as it took ages last time! If you win, shout up within 24 hours or we’ll move down the list.

Katie has tried to limit the age to male under 25’s only but we’re not having any of that

Good luck!

This is where all you current Koptalk members familiar with this blog come in. Enter the competition! Even if you can’t go. Then if you win it, either you or someone who’s willing to go in your place can pass information to Katie (and Steve) about why their fat boss is best to be avoided. If a blog-reader wins, we’ll be able to sort out something for the pair of them to read. Something that might make them stop and think. Steve’s missing out on getting any kind of real job by sitting in a shed answering phone calls from people Dunk’s upset. And now Katie’s doing the same. If you remember about when she was first set to join Koptalk it was as a moderator on evenings, and as a locker-outer at the same time. She was doing this part-time to fit in around college. Well she’s full-time now, college has obviously not worked out for her. Has working for Koptalk caused that?

So – enter the competition and if you win, get in touch with us and we’ll find a way of getting the word to Katie and Steve. If they know full well that they are a key part in Duncan Oldham’s continual frauds (especially Steve, who is always the one with his name against things when there’s any heat from anywhere) then that’s their look-out. But, and I mean this, I don’t think they actually realise what they are a part of. I don’t think Steve realises that he’s in line for a possible criminal conviction if victims decide to push Koptalk over various thefts they’ve been victims of. Yes Steve – a criminal record awaits you if you don’t separate yourself from Koptalk. Ditch Dunk.

Another reason to enter the comp? Well once we know the seat numbers for the tickets we can quickly report Duncan Oldham to the club for breaching the rules on giving tickets away as a competition prize as an enticement to join his pay site.

So what else has been happening on Koptalk? Has Dunk got any news for us Liverpool supporters? Sort of. He read this on the sports pages of his local paper, maybe even on his other favourite club’s website. A Newcastle player has had a car crash…

A Liverpool fan was yesterday involved in a road accident with Newcastle United striker Albert Luque.

The player’s £80,000 Porsche was wrecked when a lorry kitted out with Liverpool flags and shirts ploughed into it.

Neither driver was seriously injured.

That was in the news section would you believe? The bit of the site he’s supposed to use to report Liverpool news! Tomorrow on Koptalk – Cilla Black fan trips over loose paving slab near Tyne Bridge.

So what else can we learn as paying members of the worst football pay-site in Britain? We can learn that Duncan Oldham, its owner, is feeling sorry for himself. Again…

If you criticise the side it means you want Rafa out or you play Championship Manager.

If you praise the side you’re looking through rose tinted specs.

Is there a central viewpoint?

Why if someone has a different view to you do you them try to put them down without listening to them? It doesn’t make sense.

We win a game and we’re world beaters, we draw or lose a game and we’re going down. It seems like people use the opposite viewpoint to try and put down someone.

I think our league situation is a crisis by Liverpool FC’s standards. It is not a crisis for clubs around the same points because they’re supposed to have different standards to us.

If we’re a mid table side or only seen as a top 5 side, then our league position is acceptable. If we’re going to retain our historic standards then anything outside the top 2 is a crisis. I say top two because we have to be realistic and look at Chelsea’s wealth so I’ll say top 2.

Now because I have this viewpoint doesn’t mean I want Rafa out. It doesn’t mean I feel we’re going down or that the season won’t be a success somewhere along the way. What it means is I’m a fan that’s really concerned about our league form. I also acknowledge that everyone connected to the club is concerned and I also accept that there is no magic wand.

I’m not paid a few million each year to find the answers or to put in the performances but as a fan, surely all of us are entitled to voice either a positive or negative view providing it’s done so sensibly.

Nobody’s had a pop at me mind, I’m just defending those members who are made to feel like **** just because they’re prepared to speak up about a non-acceptable league position and also those members who don’t want to hang (insert LFC employee name here).

So what Dunk’s saying is that people have been falling out with him.

Maybe someone had been taking the piss out of a member like this next one. “NICK1969″ joined in June and now wants to spread this sort of bullshit. His sixth post in five months and it’s a big lie. To be fair to him he may have been told this by someone who he trusts. Stop trusting him Nick. Alternatively it’s just Dunk spreading the shit again using one of his aliases…

A rumour from last night that I heard is that the new stadium will be sponsored by ESSO and work will start second week in January – source head groundsmen?

Anyone care to deny or confirm if they have heard this or do we put it down as another rumour?

“whats in a name?A rose by any other name …….”
What would it matter what the stadium is officially called ,
Theres no chance on gods earth that the official name is what it will be called by the fans.

Oh that’s hilarious Dunk, so funny. It doesn’t make anyone laugh but you, you moron. The “DICS” thing is amusing, but not your tired old “jokes” about pies. And also you’ll find that it’s not your crap “jokes” people have paid for on the investment front – it’s information they want. But you’ve got none, you don’t have a clue. Their request for anyone being able to “confirm or deny” this fell on deaf ears.

This is the closest Dunk is to investment information. He even puts a title of “INVESTMENT EXCLUSIVE: The next LFC chairman” against it. But it’s all a “joke”. Designed to get people looking, but as always they will have been disappointed by what they see. Not an exclusive, not even a funny “joke”.

I can exclusively reveal that the following video is that of our new chairman, providing everything goes to plan. You will need audio to fully appreciate the benefits of what he’ll bring to the club.

Brilliant.
This is a big hint as to who is winning the takeover battle methinks.
(No Tommy it isn’t. Dunk does not know anything about the “takeover battle”. It’s a shite joke from him. Please wake up and see what you are a victim of!)

Well don’t!

You know that all you need to do is fart and someone will take that as a sign that Glade Air Freshener will be our sponsor next season! (That’s because so many members still believe Duncan Oldham has inside knowledge. And I say “so many”, but how many is it really? Do you still believe him Dave? Just because you are from Wigan, the renowned home of “pie-eaters”, doesn’t mean you have to blindly follow the pie eater himself. Wake up – count how many exlusives you got this summer on transfers for example. Reading what you’ve put I get the feeling you’ve also seen through Dunk – I hope so, because I’ve read some good stuff from you in the past.)

Sorry boss ;) (At last an apology from Duncan Oldham. Although he’s not really sorry. And it’s not for any of the things we’ve exposed about him. Pity really, an apology will go a long way towards building bridges for him, but he’s too arrogant to do that. His ego won’t let him “lose” any battles. He still thinks having just the leftovers of a once popular site is “winning”.)

Dunk, that’s brilliant..

However, does this mean the Dubai will win the takeover?

or you were just joking? (Porch – when I first read your comment I felt so so sorry for you. You’re probably one of the few on Koptalk who’ve not seen the blog and don’t know about other sites. You probably really do think that Duncan Oldham chats to Rick Parry a few times a week and gets texts from Rafa Benitez. He doesn’t of course, doesn’t even have a gateman on his payroll as he often claimed. But your post made Dunk make a characteristic stupid mistake. See his reply…)

Sorry Porch, I’m only messing mate, I have no idea :) (SEE! Duncan, we know you’ve got no idea. We know you are clueless. We know you’ve no contacts. We just haven’t often heard you admit it. Now stop bullshitting and go into more detail as part of an apology to your remaining members. You never know, they might stay with you. It’s the only hope you’ve got now, because every single day more and more of them are learning the truth about you. The blog knows best?)

Met him as part of my business. Reminded me what he’s like and what people on here think.

He get’s a lot of stick on KT but let me tell you, he started Redrow with a £5k loan and must be nearly a £ billionaire now – talk about self made. He is a stickler for perfection. He won’t accept anything less – ask the contractors who built his new house in Cheshire !!! Rumour has it they haven’t made any money out of it as he’s had them back and forth demanding perfection. Ask his former employees at Redrow if they rue the day he left – the answer is a resounding yes.

Ask yourself why the name is REDrow, why his son’s first name and his jet both have ‘Red’ in their names and why the offices of his new company, Harrow estates – are decked out……in red. I have never met a more avid supporter. If you met him, you’d find him an opinionated but humble yet determined man. He may not be involved in the successful bidder but, for those who think he’s a big mouth who knows nothing, you are so wrong. respect to the fella. I like him !!

Ah come on. She was defending her husband. You can’t judge someone by their wife or girlfriend :)

While it may have been embarrassing to him, it was just emotions spilling over through a very stressful period (in time, not period as in her… oh it doesn’t matter).

And with that, once again completely awful “joke” from Duncan Oldham, I bring this entry to a close.

Don’t forget – enter the competition for a ticket for the Arsenal game!

Koptalk "Insider" Video at Melwood

by Andy Insider and Rupert Insider


Andys Bit

This is the Koptalk Video link of the team training at Melwood.

http://youtube.com/watch?v=d2ZW2JO2fKM

The close-ups notwithstanding, you can tell their taken with zoom lens from over the fence by the sound of the traffic passing and the off-camera voice of scouser taking snaps next to Oldham. In fact he says “I’m here every day” and “they must know you by now, Dunk”. At the end of the video Oldham gives us a glimpse of the chatty scouser hauling the purple wheelie-bin.

There’s been a fair bit of discussion about the legalities of poking cams over the fence at Melwood. The following might of interest. They are two excerpts from a legal guide for UK-based photographers.

The full guide can be found at:

http://www.sirimo.co.uk/media/UKPhotographersRights.pdf (you need Acrobat to open it).

“A person who enters onto private property without permission commits a trespass, as does anyone who ‘interferes’ with the property. Interference could be something as minor as climbing on the landowner’s wall to take a photograph over the wall or resting a camera on a fence.”

also

“Even where property is open to entry by the public in general, as in the case of most business premises, the owner or occupier has the right to demand that a photographer cease taking photographs and the right to demand that he leave the premises.”

Rupert’s Bit

If the video glimpse of the purple wheelie-bin is too fast for you, or your distracted by the fine tenor voice of the scouse lad as he hauls it away, here’s a photo. It’s copyright of Krap Talk (2004) so you know its authentic – untouched by the Koptalk Photo Shop.

http://www.kraptalk.com/news/melwood290606.shtml

melwood.jpg

It must be comforting for members of the Kotpalk Insider to see the actual hallowed ground of the Insider Enclosure at Melwood. (The big guy with three heads on the left is not Oldham – its three young scousers minding his place on the wheelie-bin for a quid. That’s how important it is to him).

All joking aside, I quite enjoyed his little video, especially since I never paid 30 quid for it. But I don’t think I want to see too many more disjointed and foreshortened shots of barely recognisable characters in the distance kicking their balls about.

And I couldn’t really relax because I kept worrying about Dunk, the wheelie-bin, the cheekie scouser and the force of gravity.

We know Dunk doesn’t trust the wee “scallies” who blackmail him into paying them for minding his car on the rare occasions he visits Anfield. So why trust them at Melwood? If I were him I’d tow the wheelie-bin to the Pier Head behind the Mercedes. He could get his contact at the Crowne Plaza concierge desk to bring it up to his room on the lift.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What a topsy turvey world is Oldham’s!

Just a couple of months ago, Rick Parry was begging him to come over to Anfield for an urgent meeting about something Oldham had and Parry wanted; somebody else had given him exclusive tapes of Crouch talking to the S**; Steve Morgan’s people were consulting him about boardroom battles; the L4 Group in the USA and the Kraft family were constantly on the transatlantic blower keeping him up-to-date about their investment plans; he couldn’t get foreign agents and world-class players out of his hair with their confidential messages about transfer negotiations and he had to go about incognito in Liverpool to avoid the attention of LFC players who insisted on giving him the dirt on their teammates.

Steve Gerrard was a particular nuisance – always wanting to gab – and as for Dalglish – it was just as well he couldn’t speak English.

The suits were clambering to give Kotpalk official status at all LFC press conferences and other non-public events for the 2006-2007 season and his phone never stopped ringing with insider information from his army of Anfield, Melwood and Academy insiders.

And if that wasn’t enough, his real esate agents and financiers were racing ahead with the purchase of Chris Waddles 300,000 pounds house near Melwood, a downtown hotel in Liverpool and several vehicles. It was all one big happy whirl.

And now? Well look again at the photo above and the video.

After Fowler and Crouch, Bellamy is next

Dunk comes out of the closet – no not that closet – just the cupboard he went hiding in almost a week ago. If you remember he posted a few bits of his usual Sunday morning crap and then disappeared. All week he’s been hiding – posting as much as normal, but not using his own login. He’s now pretending to be ST3. Steve isn’t actually allowed to post by himself, the “editor” title being 99.9% meaningless.

So what is that got Dunk to venture out of the larder?

Yesterday there was this post from Dunk-ste and it appeared on the both sections of the forum which is in two parts, even though he’s supposedly now only got one type of membership…

I saw this first yesterday and couldn’t for the life of me work out what the “****” was blocking out. Full of shit? Full of crap? Terms usually reserved for Dunk and not really appropriate here. Any ideas? (Awaits the inevitably obvious answer from someone that I should have spotted a mile off).

Anyway, look, one of the so-called insiders on the site pipes up. From what I’ve heard Johnny H does post his insider information in good faith – i.e. he believes what he posts to be true, but there’s a doubt over whether his “source” is to be trusted.

So is there any point to this post at all?

Yes if something arises later. Nothing to see here people, move on.

So to sum up… Steve heard something off someone at Melwood. Probably one of the other LFC fans hanging around the entrance. Trouble is Dunk’s so paranoid that he really didn’t know what to do about it. So he posts it (still using ST3’s name) but dismisses it as complete nonsense. He can’t resist posting it, the old woman that he is, but he really doesn’t believe it. If he did you can bet it would have been on the front page of his tattered old free site immediately.

Anyway, that was the last we heard about it until today.

Today fatty was stuck in the Wallsend shed with Steve, munching pies, with Katie stood watching the front of the house for any DWP cars that might appear. I expect that somewhere on Sky TV the team for today’s game was announced – probably SSN on one of the tickers at the bottom of the screen. No Bellamy. And it was common knowledge by 12.30 if not earlier that Bellamy had not even travelled with the squad. (Well it is a long journey). It’s not a doubt at all that Dunk heard this on the TV at around 12.00 and so posted this (again dressed as Steve) shortly after.

Now, instead of saying he was holding back on the details of the story because he thought it was just a wind-up, Dunk was keeping the news back for the good of LFC.

Seriously – that’s what he says. Oh yes, now the kid he was chatting to outside the gates is “our source”…

What I was told about Bellamy
#1637474 – Sat Sep 09 2006 12:12 PM

Ok he wasn’t winding me up then! I didn’t want to post it yesterday incase it wasn’t true and because it’s a huge game. The reason I made the brief post yesterday about him was just incase something did come up today so you’d know I wasn’t winding you up.
Anyway one of the guys at Melwood said Bellamy had allegedly kicked off in the changing rooms after the morning training session. I was told he’d been left out of the squad but we thought that it was just Bluenose propaganda.

Bellamy was “furious” said our source. As I said yesterday when he left Melwood he was full of ****. He certainly wasn’t going to stop when he drove off where as nearly all the other players did.

I didn’t want to post this yesterday as it could have distracted our preparations. I hope you appreciate that.

*** Further: I need to add a correction/clarification. The source said because of something that allegedly happened in the changing rooms, that was why he would not figure today. He didn’t allegedly kick off because he wasn’t going to figure today. In other words, the source claimed he was dropped today because of an alleged incident. There were no signs of any problems during training when they were all together as a group.

Edited by ST3 (Sat Sep 09 2006 01:01 PM)

Love the way he’s edited that post 45 minutes after first posting it. I’m guessing that he’s heard a bit more about the story now from another site, or even that it’s been mentioned on the TV coverage.

I’ve no idea why, but as well as editing the original post he adds it again as a new post further down that thread. (I need one of those shrugging smilies here).

Edited by ST3 (Sat Sep 09 2006 01:03 PM)

So now the moment you’ve all been waiting for. What could it be that could bring the fat loser out of his hiding place? Well it won’t be food, as his family will be under orders to keep that sort of thing coming his way. No – you should know already. It’s one of his favourite things.

Attacking a Liverpool striker.

He tried hard during Robbie Fowler’s original Anfield career to get the well-loved lad from Toxteth kicked out of the club in shame. It’s been mentioned on here numerous times how Robbie was the victim of an incessant smear campaign by Duncan Oldham. To put it simply, he accused Robbie Fowler of being a drunk and unfit to even train for the Reds due to being under the influence of alcohol. It was all lies, and all dressed up as though it was true and coming from his contacts. If you’re new to this blog, maybe you hadn’t realised until then just what scum he is.

Earlier in the summer he tried to smear Peter Crouch. How would it look to Liverpool fans if Peter Crouch had defied all the advice, gone behind the backs of the club, and whilst on England duty had gone to the journalists for the Sun and granted them an exclusive? Crouch is popular amongst most Liverpool supporters, his knockers are disappearing by the day, but Oldham is someone who hates Crouch. Why? I’ve no idea, except that maybe Dunk wishes he was tall and thin. In the summer he said that Crouch had given an exclusive to The Sun, and that he had the tapes to prove it. Worse still, he threatened he would wait until the moment was right to use the tapes, so he could end Crouch’s career. Bullshit from start to finish, but would any real Liverpool fan say such things? How would Crouch feel if he read that? Then again Crouch might well say, “Duncan who?” or “Kop what?” – he certainly would now.

And now we find ourselves listening to half a story from Dunk-ste, changing all the time as he makes the scarce evidence fit the story he wants to invent. His new striker victim – Craig Bellamy.

Here, for the first time in six days, is an appearance from Duncan Oldham herself. This appeared on the so-called “free” site – he didn’t want to restrict his slur on a Liverpool player just to his members…

COMMENT: ‘Bad Boy’ Bellamy left out as Reds stuffed at Goodison

The decision by Rafa Benitez to leave Craig Bellamy out of the squad may have come as a surprise to you today but as alluded to our members yesterday, something just didn’t seem right at Melwood yesterday.

We were told at Melwood yesterday by a member of the staff at the training complex about an alleged incident after the morning session. “Bellamy lost it in the changing rooms,” claimed the source and according to them, he hadn’t kicked off because he was to play no part in the derby, he was to play no part in the derby because of him kicking off. If he did, or what about, we don’t know (yet).

When Steve told me this yesterday I told him to keep it to himself and not to say much on the eve of a huge game against the enemy. I told him that it sounded like propaganda because of the derby and that the source was probably a Bluenose.

We even spoke about it on the podcast but until today, I was dismissive of the suggestions. Whether you choose to read into things any further or whether you actually believe something has gone off is up to you. Personally I expect to see Bellamy back in the squad for next week’s PSV game. I’m sure his absence will be played down although Rafa avoided questions about his omission before the match.

Losing to Everton today was hard to take. I thought the boss might start with Robbie Fowler as he was fresh and I guess Crouch was the in-form striker. I would have liked to have seen Bellamy involved though so I guess that adds to the frustration.

It certainly didn’t look like the Liverpool we know out there today. Bellamy may have been absent but many big names were AWOL today.

Ah well. It’s Saturday and I feel the need to go and drown my sorrows.

Dunk
KOPTALK COMMENT

I’ll leave you to comment on this, in case I’m off the mark in some way, but to my way of thinking there’s no way any genuine supporter of LFC would be going for this particular hat-trick of negative stories about Liverpool players.

Even if the stuff from Melwood turned out to be true, why cause unrest for the team?

I’m just glad it appeared on a site that gets so few visitors a day, and am now wondering whether I’ve done the right thing by increasing the exposure to the story by so much. And for anyone still thinking it was worth shelling out thirty quid think about this for a moment – this is the closest Koptalk readers have got to exclusive insider information this year. And it came from outside Melwood, not inside, and from a passer by, not a source.

And one more thing – I wonder, is Dunk still bitter about the way Bellamy left Dunk’s other team, Newcastle? Is this payback?
