Reds want investment advice? Don't invest on this.

Off the scale once again. Despite half-hearted attempts to claim otherwise by a possible alias of Dunk’s, “Zico”, the Koptalk members’ site did not contain any advance information on the deal to invest in Liverpool FC.

Dunk might be “Zico”, “Zico” may be an independent bullshitter, but it’s all the same. People making stories up for attention. Like “Private_Eye_2”, Dunk’s other new alias.

I hope the remaining non-family mods on Koptalk check out those IP addresses used.

After completely missing the investment news, the biggest news possibly to hit the club in a long time, Dunk needed some damage limitation. His reputation was shot. A lot of members left as a result of the lack of information. Apart from SC Kair’s wrong information and Zico’s vague information (that covered all angles) they had not got an ounce of exclusive information at all.

So after banning anyone who said anything in public (but not of course the new batch of doubters who’ve decided to keep quiet) Dunk decided it was time for another yarn. Another made-up tale.

When you know – for a fact – that Oldham has no contacts at all with the club then this yarn becomes quite funny…

DIC a better option than Kraft and Co.

Well something is finally going to happen on the investment front. Obviously an offer may not follow after DIC have checked over the books but that would be extremely unlikely. Basically they’ll take a look and when they see the negatives, they’ll just adjust their offer accordingly so there’s nothing to worry about. (Well thanks for that Duncan. We’re not worthy. You know so much we didn’t know already.)

I spoke to a couple of people this morning associated to the likes of L4 and Steve Morgan and there were mixed feelings evident between both sides. (No you didn’t.) L4 are “extremely happy” while poor old Steve Morgan is said to be “pulling his hair out”. I’m sure though that Steve will want what is best for the club. He’s a good man. (Bull. As ever)

The million dollar question I had to ask today was “Is DIC a better option than Kraft?”. As we know Kraft turned his back on the Reds citing attitude and minor investment as a turn off. Whether those whispers were true we’ll never know but what we do know is that the chairman David Moores is now prepared to deal on a larger scale. (Why will we never know? You’ve got all of these contacts, shouldn’t you know? Your lies trip you up once again.) The Dubai-based investors certainly know their business. Equally though does Kraft so I wanted to know for my own peace of mind, if DIC would be a better option than Kraft. (You mean you wanted to have a good read of RAWK and YNWA and see what you could find out before adding it to this attempt at saving face?)

To me it’s not just about money. It’s the long term plan that matters. Anyone can throw money around but it’s the business credentials that are what I look to, hence the obvious attraction to Kraft. (Get ready for some real bull now people.) Who better to ask about Kraft v DIC than the people who brought him to Anfield in the first place, and their opinion? (Who?) Well they believed that DIC would be much more powerful. (Who are “they”? Do you even know?) The excitement of these people is hard to play down. (Excitement? Do you know who “they” would actually be, if you’d actually spoken to them? “Excitement”? You are mad, stark-raving mad. And thick.) They really feel there is nobody out there any better to take Liverpool Football Club into a new and exciting era and they acknowledged that Rick Parry would be deserving of praise once a deal is finalised.(Oh dear. Dunk – you do make yourself look stupid. Saves me a job)

I wasn’t the only person seeking opinions about DIC and their proposed relationship with Liverpool FC. (It gets better.) A senior figure at the Bernabeu had already made contact to the executives I’ve just been speaking to.(What is an “executive” then Dunk? You use the word a lot, but what does it actually mean? It sounds oh-so important doesn’t it? There’s nobody about tea-lady would speak to you. And that’s only because tea ladies are generally speaking nice people who would feel sorry for stupid people like you) Figures there had a particular interest in what was happening at Anfield but without going into that, let’s just say that Real Madrid have been watching (nothing to do with transfers).(What complete and utter bollocks. Rubbish. What are you on?)

I’m a keen follower of horse racing and what Sheikh Mohammed has done in the sport is astounding. (We know. Your love of gambling is second only to your love of bullshitting.) Just look at what Godolphin has achieved. If we had that kind of rub, we’ll be laughing.

Meanwhile, various websites run by Chelsea fans have been publishing editorials about our present situation with DIC. From what I’ve seen posted in our members forums, Chelsea fans are going to great lengths writing up their essays saying how they’re not concerned. Well if that’s the case, why dedicate so much time debating it? (What? Like you’re not concerned about this blog, or what people say about you on est1892 and elsewhere? So why do you spend so much time talking about it? ) If you’re not a threat or if you’re a nobody, people don’t discuss you. Think about it. (So are we a threat to you? Or are you a threat to us? You discuss us a lot, yet say you’re not bovvered. You’re bothered alright.)

Loc: UK The guy(s) from London that were at Melwood last week… just a quickie… they’re back for another meeting after Christmas. They’re also advising Everton about another financial/investment matter if that’s of any interest which I doubt it is

People still fall for this. I feel sorry for them, because they are in for a shock like many others have been once they see how obvious it all is.

Here’s the new alias who popped up the other day. “Private-eye_2″…

Loc: Ireland The rumours are about to start flying and here’s some interesting ones I’ve heard over the weekend.

Liverpool have been in contact with Inter Milan and Real Madrid about taking Figo and Ronaldo on loan.

Celtic to make a bid for Sami Hyypia.

That’s oh so believable Dunk. How did you think it all up?

And again, this morning, back for more…

Loc: Ireland Ok, we all got a bit excited with the possibility of LFC being able to buy like Chelsea have been doing but we need to think about the ramafications of starting down this road. First of all, I hope we never become a club that buys players so other clubs cant get them and then leave them to rot on the bench or in the reserves. Chelsea have seriously affected the careers of both Duff and SWP. Secondly, we would become part of an elite in world football dominated by money. The finanical implications of losing has had a negative impact on the quality of the game with matches getting tighter and tighter.

I was heartened to read the comments by Rafa and the board saying that we wont become another Chelsea. This sort of domination will eventually backfire, e.g. AC Milan of the ’90’s.

We need a new stadium and a structured, sensible transfer market strategy. Our emphasis should be on developing our own players through the youth system and this will require an investment in new coaching and scouting staff.

I want us to earn our reputation, not buy it!

We’ve earned our reputation over the years and even did it the hard way in 2005.

I hardly think that you’ll see Rafa buying 11 new players for £15-20m each like the Chavs did when Abramovich took over.

As i’ve said previously i don’t see Rafa to go for the £30m Shevchenko’s of this world. However, when he needs that extra £5m to buy the likes of Alves then this won’t be a problem.

I always felt that was the plan anyway. The idea must be to raise revenue through a bigger stadium and a better commercial side. This then can be reinvested in the squad, youth team etc.
I do feel however that we need to start looking at signing a top player or two. It is evident that we have a decent squad now, but lack players who can make things happen on the field. So maybe we are looking at spending slightly more money than previous on fewer players (like the Scum do).

I agree in principle but getting more than 1 good youth player via the youth system every other season is hard as Alan Pardew said recently. There’s been exceptions of course with us, Mancs and West Ham bringing a bunch of good kids through but according to Pardew this is a once in 10-15 year thing.
We could of course buy the best youngsters and bend the rules like Arsenal and out of every 3 they invest in 1 will hopefully make it. I think to a certain extend that’s what Rafa is doing.
(Richy – you’re a mod, can you not see that it’s Dunk who’s pretending to be Private Eye 2?)

Good post Private Eye. (It’s Dunk, silly) Like all things in life however there is a balance to be struck in terms of our future transfer policy, should this deal go ahead. No I don’t think we should be attempting to buy a star studded line up over one close season a la Chelsea but the ability to buy those one or two players that can be justified without having to fret about being outbid by the Newcastles of this world will be most welcome surely?? Its also about how the club conducts itself also and the attitude of us fans although I have no doubt the same idiots will still be found ranting on 606!!

Dunk’s attempts to keep the forums going are getting more and more desperate. He’s not reorganised the forums so that users spend most of the day trying to find the one they want. And he’s done away with having a separate forum for LFC and Non-LFC talk, because it means the tumbleweed has less room to flow around in. Kop_5 was first to notice, he doesn’t seem to like it…

Loc: UK No you’re not dim (No – Dunk’s got that job on Koptalk.)

And one other think Dunk – your Alder Hey appeal, the one you said was publicly viewable to “guests” – I have had it pointed out to me that this isn’t the case at all. Another lie, or a genuine mistake?

    Does Dunk still go dogging?

    I have been following this site for a while now, and I can confirm that the Koptalk site is struggling for hits (it was sooooo calm today). Also, The site completely missed out on investment – although it “seemed” to promise a lot when I first subscribed in June just before the transfer window. All the investment usual suspects, i.e Morgan, L4 and Kraft that koptalk talked about were not accurate at all, in fact DIC was not mentioned once!! Also, we only knew about signings when they occured, or when they were published exclusively in newspapers. Seriously, I am one of the members who will definitely not renew, but I am going there everyday to confirm that nothing makes sense. I am logging to your blog here twice a day to see what I am missing. I have switched to many other LFC sites, and I hope others get this site as well (I did by looking at the newsnow site for the last 3 years – Thank goodness you added yourself there).
    Cheers and I will never fall for a con membership again!

    “Those quotes are from 1998-2002 period when Koptalk was the largest site – in fact there were only about 3 LFC sites then, in the early days of footie-sites on the net. It was large because its forums were free. They are no longer free.”

    Spot on. I used to run one of the “3 lfc sites” that we’re around back in the ‘early days’ and Dunc even then used dirty tactics to pull fans away from my site to his.

    He even prized a top ex-red who used to write for us for nearly a year over to his site – not too sure how he did it….

    Great blog this by the way!

    There is only one answer to every question about Oldham – money.

    “He even prized a top ex-red who used to write for us for nearly a year over to his site – not too sure how he did it….”

    Moeny or the promise of it.

    And why did that ex-Red leave Koptalk? Money or the failure to pay it.

    Oh! He does. 🙂
