It works best in an atmosphere of deep and well-informed interest in LFC and the game of football.
These requirements clashed with the business practices of Duncan Oldham, the sole owner of the Koptalk website. He stated last week what many have long known that he has no interest in LFC’s success. His site is a business, not a labour of love.
This week the Predictor League quietly uprooted itself, without fuss, and moved lock-stock-and-barrel to the LFC supporters site Est 1892
Est 1892 is free, as is every other unofficial supporters site listed in the right column of this page under “LFC Sites”. Only Koptalk charges.
Like most of the features that the Koptalk web-site used to have, the Predictor League was created and organised by the participants – not by the owner of the site. However, he charged ₤30 for access to it.
The reason for the move is that as much as 85% of former users of Koptalk have abandoned the site in the past five months. Many of the former players in the Predictor League had already moved to Est 1892 or other sites and did not want to play the game on Koptalk.
