What do Koptalk's headlines lead to?

Just to keep to the “promise” of trying to make sure you can judge for yourselves whether Koptalk’s “insider” bullshit is worth paying £30 for, here’s the latest. Note the headline designed to attract attention too. It’s about Lucas Neill, the player who the whole world knew nearly became a Red last summer.

Try not to laugh at “Koptalk understands” or the way he sounds oh-so-knowledgeable about the way contracts work. Having never kept to one himself, implied contract or actual legal document, it’s no wonder he doesn’t really understand the concept: “…permission would need to be obtained which usually means that a fee would have to be agreed first. That though is up to Rovers.” Usually? A fee has to be agreed or he stays. If the fee is actually a zero fee then that is still the agreed fee to get the player to leave. Dopey.

Liverpool swoop imminent

Liverpool will make a formal approach to Blackburn Rovers within the next few days for Lucas Neill.

KOPTALK understands that Neill’s agent Peter Harrison made contact with Reds chief executive Rick Parry yesterday (Wednesday) to arrange a formal date to discuss a possible transfer as part of the formalities.

The player does not need permission from Rovers to discuss a possible summer transfer as he’d be out of contract by then so he’s free to negotiate a pre-contract from January 1st.

However, as Liverpool want to sign Neill next month, permission would need to be obtained which usually means that a fee would have to be agreed first. That though is up to Rovers.

Rovers are still seeking £1.5million for the player but they would take Stevie Warnock in a direct swap deal. That though is unlikely and we’d also be surprised if we paid anywhere near £1.5m for the player.

Liverpool are in the stronger position but the key to the deal will be the amount of pressure that the player puts on Rovers to leave. If he fails to force Rovers to release him, the player knows that come the summer, Rafa would have other options.

Paddy Dominguez, who works for Neill’s management company, has confirmed that Liverpool are still in for Neill. He also claims that Barcelon and several other clubs are chasing his client.

Dominguez said: “Liverpool remain very much in the frame but they are by no means the only team to have shown a strong interest.

“Lucas has made very clear his decision to move on and people will know what the destination is early in the New Year.

“Lucas has been a fantastic servant to Blackburn over the past five years, but he now has an opportunity to realise his dream of playing at a top European club.

“In addition to Liverpool and Barcelona, several other big clubs are interested, so we’ll just wait and see.”

Meanwhile, the fat conman who seems to have made himself a profit from his Alder Hey appeal, reported this story…

#59403 – Today at 11:58 AM Gerrard hospital scare confirmed

Posts: 26916 It’s been confirmed that Steven Gerrard’s daughter Lexie was taken to Alder Hey hospital on Christmas Eve due to a mystery health scare.

The 8-month old baby was rushed to hospital following a sudden increase in her temperature and was kept in overnight for observation.

Lexie was rushed to hospital a couple of months ago in a meningitis scare but that turned out to be a suspected allergy.

Rumours of the hospital visit had been doing the rounds but until it was confirmed, we thought it best to leave this off the site.

Let’s hope little Lexie returns to full health soon.

Alder Hey. Yes, the hospital which treated Steven Gerrard’s youngest is the same hospital Dunk seems to have skimmed some money from. The scumbag must be so proud.

And as for “rumours” doing the rounds? More likely that Oldham read the story as it appeared on news sites this morning. As usual though the persistent liar had to invent a bit to the story, hoping his members would think he was in the loop over such things. Also as usual, the persistent bullshitter with the goldfish memory had forgotten how he’d told us in the past he kept in contact with Steven Gerrard on a regular basis. I can’t remember if that was before or after he told us the name “Duncan Oldham” wasn’t his real one, which of course would have made the wedding menus from his wedding to his estranged wife and deeds on his home all fake too. Pillock.

He read the following story in the Echo, but has to put a headline on designed to get some attention….

Reds duo attracting interest

Liverpool have received an informal enquiry regarding the availability of Gabriel Paletta and Salif Diao.

Spanish La Liga outfit Gimnàstic de Tarragona have approached Rafa Benitez about the possibility of signing both players on loan in the near future.

Diao’s loan spell with Stoke expires in a few days time and believe it or not, he’s been playing some decent football at that level and it’s likely that they will try and secure his services.

Paletta is in need of some experience if he is to succeed in England so a loan move to another English club would make sense. However Rafa could be tempted to loan him out to Gimnàstic for the second half of the season.

Also new to Koptalk today, from the site with all of its claims of insider contacts, is the story that hit the rest of the net yesterday. But they didn’t have Dunk’s “knowledge” added in. Dunk found out about this from his copy of the Mirror, I can only assume his copy of the S*n didn’t have any LFC stories in it…

Further reports today claim that Atletico Madrid are prepared to offer Liverpool £14million for midfielder Xabi Alonso.

Alonso has been identified as their top target of 2007 with Atletico sporting director Jesus Garcia Pitarch boasting that they have a good chance of signing the player.

It’s obvious that the Atletico interest is genuine but the player isn’t for sale. £14million though would certainly make the boss think but Xabi is one of Rafa’s favourites and providing D.I.C. come in, the boss doesn’t need to sell.

Finally, for now at least, is this request from one of Dunk’s few remaining gullibles. Assuming it’s one of his gullibles and not someone reeling Dunk in, again. Also assuming that this prolific poster (18 posts) isn’t actually Dunk trying to force some activity out of the last few members…

Most annoying member? Best reject of the year? Best pie award?

I’d like to hear your suggestions for categories for this blog. Most prolific liar? Most original kamikaze post? Funniest kamikaze post? Dunk’s most outrageous lie, most despicable lie, funniest lie, far-fetched lie (etc). Dunk’s funniest way of showing the blog doesn’t bother him at all honest. Any other categories, but best of all some nominations. I don’t think I’ll be able to do it as a vote, but you never know…

DUNK: Where are those receipts for Alder Hey?

    Late Again This Time with the Lucas Neil Story
    https://koptalkinsider.wordpress.com/2006/08/20/late-again-this-time-with-lucas-neill-story/

    Oldham was the last of several sites to report that LFC was interested in Lucas Neil in the summer. He got it all from his “rivals”.

    Most of what he wrote today is a repeat of what he wrote then.

  2. rupertinsider Says:

    Is kevin-d trying to say he bought an iPod to listen to KT podcasts? And he has no use for it if there are no more podcasts.

    Is this the Harry Enfield “kevin” ?

  3. Tim Says:

    I think Dunc maybe a little inaccurate with regards to being able to talk to Neill from 1st January for a summer free transfer. If memory serves correctly that only applies to transfers to/from overseas. We had this similar issue with Zenden from boro but we couldn’t actually talk to him, officially, until something like the 1st June. Will try and find some deffinate answers to it if I can.

  4. fat_boy_fat Says:

    TIM
    You are right regarding that point. We cant “offically” talk to Neill about a SUMMER move until nearer the summer. Any european club can talk to him from 1st Jan
