On Sunday, around 6 pm, Oldham used his site to build a little video shrine to the Toon’s crippled midget – Michael Owen. He posted a string of stolen video clips from YouTube – some of Owen’s goals for LFC.
And when asked why, he said:
“I’m seeing him in an hour or so and I’m taking him my betting slip to show him (I’ve backed his return to Liverpool). There’s also a few Liverpool players going tonight and some big cheese. Should be interesting.”
Anyway, yesterday, his members – all five of them – waited with baited breath to hear what happened at the meeting.But when he “returned” Oldham was as silent as a monk. He would not answer any questions about it – no Insider information whatsoever.
One charming innocent with only 143 posts – padraic 1– couldn’t contain himself any longer and yesterday he asked:
“well dunk any news/insider info”
Dunk was still deep in meditation. So that reet cheeky monkey – Dave 100 – had to reply to padraic1:
“Dunk doesn’t like to use the term ‘insider info’ anymore! Don’t know why! I mean an extra £4 to lose the ‘insider’? I thought closing the main site would have made everyone automatically members of the old ‘insider’ site.
Ah well, i guess i’ll stop before i get my knuckles wrapped!”
I’m guessing that what Dave 100 meant was that he had to pay an extra £4 more than he used to pay and yet was deprived of the The Insider, which was the main reason many signed up in the first place.
It didn’t escape my attention that Dave’s signature is “D-day Looms”.
Perhaps it didn’t escape Oldham’s either because while he was determined to keep his vow of silence on Michael Owen and the big cheese, he was not going to tolerate any suggestion – real or imagined – that he was sensitive about the use of the word “Insider”.
So he snapped back at Dave:
“You thought wrong didn’t you
We don’t like reference to the insider site, not the word insider… because we no longer run that feature as we wanted to stop the duplication of topics etc by having two features.”
Notice his continued use of the Royal “we”. It did not escape my attention that his – or should I say – “their” – signature was a blatant advertisement for his – or should I say “their” – porno site:
“Lads chat, videos, jokes, ladies and more @ (blanked out to deny him hits) – Not work friendly!”
If he says its “not work friendly” I’d believe him – that’s one subject on which he is an authority.
And to show just how sensitive he wasn’t about what Dave said – he locked the thread.
This incident was a flashback to the old times – when Oldham regularly boasted about mixing with the players and rubbing shoulders with the “top brass”.
Those were the days when his site was plastered with claims that it had privileged access and information to LFC which he would make available to all those who paid extra for the “The Insider” service.
It was all BB (Before Blog). These days are AB (After Blog) and everyone – except some of his newest members – know he is liar. LFC has not only disassociated from all his tall-tales but has made it clear that he has never had access to the club or the players and never will.
And we all saw his pathetic video at Melwood last summer taken over the fence from the top of a purple Wheelie bin which demonstrated how much of an “outsider” he really is, and how he hid behind the kids who were autograph-hunting as the players cars emerged into the street, and then how he butted-in shoving his microphone at the manager and players in an attempt to get them to mouth the word “Koptalk”. But none of them recognised it or wanted to talk to him.
For those still waiting to hear the lowdown on Owen and the big cheese – give it time he’ll think of something, he usually does, even if its self-contradictory, as it usually is.
