CONFIRMED: Boycott-buster took SUN cash – blames LFC "rivals" for snitching on him

by Rupert Insider

Yesterday we exposed that Duncan Oldham has been promoting The SUN for money. Today he confirmed it.

Even though he will not allow mention of this blog on his site and bans any paying member who slips in a reference to it, we will publish his statement in full:

_________________________________________________

Adverts that appear on KOPTALK.COM are provided by advertising agencies. When they add new client adverts, we only get to see them when they appear. They do not consult us or their other publishers first. Once ads are displaying we can disable them.

We would never knowingly advertise The Sun and if you think we would, you’ve been suckered in by those connected to other LFC websites. The only ads we can disable before they appear are those that fall into certain categories i.e. gambling, adult, tobacco.

If The Sun was to run an online campaign via any of the advertising agencies we work with, then yes, their ads could appear but they would immediately be removed, as they would on any other LFC site I assume.

Google Ads allow you to block certain domains so The Sun’s website is permanently blocked. But the other two agencies do not have this kind of block.

When annoying adverts previously cropped up on here when we had the Insider section which carries ads, if a member asked us to disable an ad e.g. because it was irritating, we simply disabled it.

Thankfully our advertising is minimal now.

Using Hillsborough and the innocent lives of 96 Liverpool fans to try and score brownie points through internet rivalry is disgraceful. Shame on those responsible

___________________________________________

He is the sole owner of his one-man site. The cash that it takes in from advertisers and members goes into his personal pocket. He boasts about his total control. “Dunk knows best”, he says.   If people don’t like it, they can “fuck off”. He claims he monitors his site 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

But today he says he didn’t know that he was promoting The SUN for money. He would never have done such a thing if he had known!

At least he did not say what he usually says when caught out in a lie or with his hand in the cookie jar: “It was a joke”.

The fact is that his SUN banners on Koptalk were first reported more than 14 days ago by a contributor to Est1892. Unfortunately, that poster was not quick enough to capture a screen shot. If you are already registered at Est 1892 the original thread is on the Koptalk Talk Forum

It was only when this blog published the screen shots and only after several other LFC sites started threads linking to the blog’s article and only after the blog article moved rapidly up News Now “Top Stories” that Oldham ducked for cover. He was waiting to measure the reaction to our article.  He was brazen enough to keep running the ads earlier today. He didn’t want to pull them too soon, if it wasn’t completely necessary. Why turn away money?

But he did pull them – and just the SUN Fastclick ads, not the others – which proves he could have pulled them earlier.

In his statement he does not offer to give the SUN cash back. It must add up to a tidy sum by now – at least 14 days of receipts.   He does not offer to donate it to the Hillsborough Justice Campaign – although I doubt that they would want his Judas money.

In the tradition of the Iraq Minister of Propaganda – he tries to revert blame.

He now claims that anyone who thought he was at fault is a “sucker”. They have been taken in by his “rivals”. And it is his “rivals” who are misusing the events at Hillsborough – events he dishonoured in 1998 when he published a photo of himself proudly wearing a SUN promotional hat.

As we have pointed out before – Koptalk is an anti-LFC site. His big project is a phantom book entitled Anfield Exposed. He classifies all LFC supporter sites as “rivals” and LFC’s “official” site as “the other side”.

He didn’t specify this blog as a “rival” – he never mentions us by name. He’s terrified that if he does his few remaining members might look us up. And if they did they would discover his “rival” reference doesn’t work with us. We do not advertise. We do not taken in any revenues directly or indirectly. We do not have forums or any of the other goodies of a supporters site. And we are not “banned former members” with an axe to grind. We have never met him or paid him a penny or had any personal dealings with him. We have free access to his site thanks to passwords donated by some of his paying members.

I will leave to the experts to deal with his claim that he had no control over the advertisements he profited from. Please use the Comments section below. If you have specialized knowledge perhaps you could email me an article for publication under your own name – or anonymously.

There is a larger question. Why was he advertising at all? In his most recent sales pitch he claims he has “thousands on thousands” of members who pay him ₤30 as well as innumerable others who pay ₤40 for an SMS service. He constantly tries to justify the membership fees on the grounds that it means he can eliminate advertisements.

The truth, as always with Oldham, is the first casualty of his bullshit. The fact is he does not have thousand of members let alone paying members. Indeed, perhaps it was because he has so few members behind the locked gates of his site, that he thought it was safe to run the SUN banner ads where only his sycophants would see them. And he did get away with it for 14 days.

He is financially dependent on the traffic from News Now to earn him hits with the advertisers. And that is why he has to steal news items from other sites, or make them up and give them a misleading headline. His Gonzales accident story the other day – for example. He took it from the news wires and claimed it was coming directly from his sources at Melwood. He headlined it “Liverpool midfielder” instead of “Gonzales” just to add a bit more mystery. And anyone who clicked on it was greeted with a pop-up advertisement. Thanks to the Gonzales’s accident, Oldham made a bit of money that day.

It should be obvious by now that every click on an Oldham piece on News Now is a penny in his pocket. He doesn’t give a shit what LFC fans think of him. As he said before “In this internet lark – always look after No.1 first”.

  1. An Observer Says:

    Why does the fat cunt need advertising given that he’s raking it in with subs.

    Fat money grabbing shit – fuck off LFC doesn’t want you.

  2. dataimaginary Says:

    He’s desperate – it’s a last grab for cash before he goes under.

  3. Robbie Says:

    I notice after this statement that fastclick are STILL on his site.

    If The Sun was to run an online campaign via any of the advertising agencies we work with, then yes, their ads could appear but they would immediately be removed, as they would on any other LFC site I assume.

    So again why are fastclick still being shown on every page in the header. If the Sun could have been manually banned why has it took them days to do anything about it?

    For one simple reason…money

    Come on Koptalk, if you had any decency and to prove you arent in it for the money why not get rid of all advertisers completely – and just run off the many £30s you insist on taking from users for “insider” info.

  4. LSM Says:

    What a boring life the man must lead. His whole life is pent in a portakabin trying to eke out a quid from the few fans who haven’t heard of him, and he can’t show his face enywhere near the club or its fans for fear of being twatted. And he holds on to the delusion that somehow every other site, fan, the club itself, they’re all in the wrong and he is doing nothing wrong.

    Get a life Dunk. More imporantly, get a grip on reality. The reality that you are a complete outsider from everything LFC, and it is YOU who are making this worse for yourself by prolonging this whole Koptalk circus. Get back to cleaning offices, at least you’ll get some bleeding excercise. Leeds seem to be turning things around, go and suck your own fellow fans dry.

  5. Ste Says:

    Nothing but a fat scumbag, as proven time and time and time again.

  6. The Dawg Says:

    WHy the FUCK are you even bothered writing about this shit? Move on!

  7. SteveO Says:

    “WHy the FUCK are you even bothered writing about this shit? Move on!”

    Because some thick fat geordie conman is making profit from the sun and claiming to be associated with LFC.

    Why are you posting here? You must be very proud of your son.

    A small time conman
    Obese
    Failed marriage
    Thick

    At least he as a nice Merc, rather then funding his sick cousin, he bought the Merc and conned others into paying for it.

  8. Ste Says:

    Wow, the latest article is quite possibly the best I’ve ever read on here.

  9. Ste Says:

    Hey, “The Dawg”, homie, quit your bitchin and leave this debate to the adults.

  10. Jonesy_'96'_Justice Says:

    absoloute disgrace to LFC and it’s fans everywere, I have never ever liked ‘Koptalk’ since I first read it, becuase I found that all he focused on was the bad points

    But now afta seeing this…..I feel sick, absoloutly sick.
    Spread the word as much as you can, ‘Koptalk’ is shambles. And a disgrace the Might Reds

  11. Edwin Says:

    Whoever runs this website is a completely sad twat. Presumably at some point Dunc must have spotted these inadequacies and upset him for this chidish, schoolyard petulance to be needed.

    You are a very very sad man and I pity you.

    Koptalk is by far the best LFC website, although there are lots of things that should and could be changed.

    You are pathetic.

  12. rupertinsider Says:

    Your kind contribution would be more enlightening if you would list some of the “lots of things (on Koptalk) that should and could be changed” because that’s exactly what this blog is about.

    You know as well as I that Oldham will ban you if you mention even one of them on his site – even though you may have paid him for the privilege of posting – but we won’t ban you or delete your post even though you paid us nothing.

  13. amused Says:

    Edwin, you honestly think KT is the best LFC site on the Internet?

    If you like it that much then send me 30 quid and I can set up one with just as many fake rumours and puerile bullshit which will keep you entertained.

    By defending Oldham/KT, you make yourself look like an ignoramus.

    Edwin, you obviously dont get out much if you think KrapTalk is the best LFC website.

    Get real you bellend.

    Or are you DunCON in disguise?

    Hi Guys,
    Just discovered a rich seam of LFC supporters clubs in Spain – will be loading up a page on them on the FANS tab on http://www.spain-football.org some time later today
    Really nice guys – be great if you added them to your list

    Cheers
    Simon
    Barça fan but LFC sympathiser when you’re not playing us!
