I was going to say “£100 million” but Duncan Oldham of Koptalk already used that today and he used “£200-300” million earlier in the week. So I split the difference.
His piece today got to No. 1 on News Now in a couple of minutes. The hits earned him enough mince pies for a month. But he’ll probably scoff the lot in an hour.
The page he linked to had a blank space where there should have been a photo. That’s because he has been in a lot of trouble lately for stealing copyright. You have to pay £30 and become one of his members if you want to see his stolen goods.
But since its Christmas, I nicked it from his site for you. That’s only a venial sin – to nick from the Koptalk Konman.
Notice the “KOPTALK.COM” – that’s what he puts on in “bucketshop” to fool his members into thinking they’re getting something EXCLUSIVE for their money.
David Villa of Valencia – £100 million
To prove I’m not a cheapskate – I’m giving you an extra two photos of David Villa – 200% more than Kraptalkers got for their £30. And these two are EXCLUSIVE to the blog. (I’m not lying because I had my fingers crossed when I wrote that).
It’s the second time Oldham used that misleading headline trick in a week.
The first time I pointed out that Rick Parry came on a BBC podcast and denied the “wild speculation”. He said that the club had no idea what money might come available and when – even if DIC did go ahead with the takeover of the club. And he would not know that for some time. And even if the club did get to know that new money would be available, it would not be helpful to the club to publicise its budget. Click here for that story.
If you haven’t read the Koptalk thingie – this is what it says.
Several (unamed) Sunday newspapers say that Rafa is targetting David Villa of Valencia and Oldham thinks they may or may not be right – duh.
Rafa used to be manager of Valencia – duh.
Rafa may or may not be targetting other players – duh.
Rafa will have to target some players – including younger ones – if he wants LFC to compete with Chelsea and Manchester United – duh.
LFC did well in 2006 and we hope they do better in 2007 – duh.
So if you hadn’t read it yet, sorry for spoiling the ending for you. But it was a good title, wasn’t it?
(BTW Dunk did not cull the Villa story from the newspapers. He’s too lazy for that. He got it from “Chrispy”, one of his paying members, who posted it on KT at 11.45 am “LFC in for 25 million David Villa. According to SSN (Sky Sports News). Just came on in the round up (of what the newspapers say) and they also said the Scum would sign Hargreaves in the next two weeks for £12 million.”)
Oldham didn’t explain how David Villa would cost £100 million. That was another EXCLUSIVE saved for those daft enough to pay him £30. In his members only section, he claimed that the Valencia had placed a £100 million buy-out clause in David Villa’s contract – or was it £275 million?

Edit: Oldham had a four hours start on us, but a the time of writing we are already No. 2 behind the pantomime dame on News Now and closing fast.
