The headline on Koptalk.coN screamed about information to be found in gold-covered streets of Koptalkinsider.coN. “The truth about our failed transfer bid + Investment news and more” it screamed.
The truth? About our failed transfer bid? But wait, what about, “Investment news“? And that not it? There’s more says Oldham, probably in the voice of that short Irish ‘comedian’ whose name escapes me. Then again, he prefers Bernard Manning does the xenophobic Mr Oldham.
In fact the first encounter I had with the headline was from what he laughingly calls his “News” page. The headline was another of his misleading ones – because it didn’t relate to the story behind it. Which reminds me of this tagline on one of his own sites – “The name on the front of the shirt is more important than the name on the back…” In Duncan Oldham’s world, “The headline that brings you the hits is more important than the bullshit behind the scenes…”
Here is the article and its headline –
The truth about our failed transfer bid + Investment news and more

That story was not a story at all. It was a plug for the Gold and Insider sites. Nothing in it about investment, about transfers, or about “more”. We hunted around on the Insider and Gold sites to see what a poor unsuspecting Red might find should they fall for Duncan’s bullshit. What stories, true or otherwise, could they find for their (up to) thirty quid?
None. Nothing. No stories.
The plug above is full of crap as ever. Fans? They slag the club off from top to bottom. Survive? They claim they spend a lot more on hosting than they actually do. And most content is stolen! Save £10 if you pay cash too – “nobody needs to know about our little arrangement” says Dunk.
Existing member feedback? You’ve still got feedback on your feedback pages from people who asked you remove it. Much of the rest is made up. As is the magic number again – 99.9%. I wonder if Dunk actually knows what 99.9% means? As for 6000 members – you wish. And the most users we’ve seen online, including anonymous ones and any scams he’s carried out to increase the figures, was just over 300. I’m not checking all the time, but I’ve yet to see him beat 300. What percentage of your claimed membership levels are actually using your site then Duncan?
No sign anywhere of “and more”. No sign anywhere of details on transfers falling through. The only “investment” story on Oldham’s sites was seen on both his “free” site and his Insider/Gold site. In fact he posted the story in a forum post as well as a news post. You didn’t have to subscribe to read this. He’s proud of this one clearly, so let’s give it some airtime.
A planned ‘aggressive’ investment approach to try and oust Liverpool chairman David Moores from Anfield has been ditched.
KOPTALK understands that a consortium of wealthy businessmen based in England and Spain were preparing to make the approach but pulled out at the last minute for fear of creating negative media attention which could spark animosity from supporters.
The consortium claims to have the clout to buy all of the chairman’s shares and arrange funding for the new stadium.
They also claim that they could provide the manager with the funds to spend more heavily in the market.
According to the consortium, they’re not prepared to spend heavily on legal fees just to come to the table when they know the chairman isn’t interested in selling.
A spokesperson for the consortium told KOPTALK: “David Moores simply doesn’t want to sell. If he did we would buy all of his shares, press ahead with the [new] stadium and provide money for the manager.
“David is quite happy to see the club pick up a trophy each season. He just doesn’t want to let go.
“We know he cares about the club but he’s not prepared to spend his own money any more. There’s no reason why he couldn’t stay on in some capacity if we were to invest.
“We’re not going to spend hundreds of thousands of pounds on legal costs trying to speak to the club when we know David has no intentions of selling.
“The money is there – not just from ourselves but others – but the club simply don’t want to take it.
“Nobody will simply throw money at the club for a bit part role. It’s got to be all or nothing.
“We’re ready to invest but the club aren’t interested.”
Liverpool’s third biggest shareholder Steve Morgan remains interested in buying into the club.
That was confirmed this week when he sought clarification from the Premier League regarding what would happen if he loaned money to struggling Wrexham and then found himself in the position to take a seat on the Liverpool board.
The self-made businessman is another potential investor who has money waiting but he’s stopped banging on the door at Anfield because he also believes the chairman doesn’t want to sell.
He dropped out of the media spotlight after spending a fortune trying to take-over the club but he still wants in.
2-years ago his wife said: “My husband has spent nearly £300,000 on legal fees trying to put money into Liverpool Football Club. The response hasn’t been slow, it has been intolerable.”
KOPTALK understands that the L4 consortium – which Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish is associated with – would also come forward if invited, but again they will tell you that the club doesn’t want to do business and they’re not planning any kind of fresh approach as things currently stand.
Minted American businessman Robert Kraft is no longer on the scene but he continues to be looking at extending his business portfolio into Europe. There is nothing to suggest he couldn’t be tempted back if attitudes at Anfield change.
Liverpool chief executive Rick Parry insists the club is looking for potential investment, especially as the club must prove by September 28th that they have the money to build the new stadium.
If they fail to convince the Objective 1 committee that they have the resources, the club stands to lose around £20million in grants and city councillors have threatened that if there’s no regeneration in the area, they won’t allow the stadium to be built.
Oh dear. Duncan – you look a dickhead, but did you have to go to all this trouble make sure you look a dickhead? In one sentence your mystery consortium is backing out because they’ve got to pay hundreds of thousands of pounds in legal fees just to open talks with the club – then L4 are waiting for an invite? I’ve said it before – stop lying, because despite the years of trying to perfect the art, you are totally crap at it.
How about your quotes from your contact? They won’t accept David Moores having any stake in the club, but he can stay on in some capacity. Please at least read your bullshit before you publish it. You’ve got no contacts at Anfield, Melwood, The Academy, L4, Steve Morgan and co, or mystery English and Spanish investors.
You are a fraud, and more and more people are starting to see this.
