” KopTalk is a members only website aimed at mature die-hard Liverpool supporters…”
So why is today’s Koptalk Podcast entitled “Cops”?
I won’t give the link. Why give him unearned hits? But its a pirated video showing disconnected clips of arrests in the USA with no commentary. Its not even interesting – even as a cops clip. And it has nothing to do with football, let alone LFC.
So why “Cops“?
For Oldham, its a security-blanker or a teddy-bear not named “Rupert”. When he feels his wheels coming off, he curls up in a foetal position and thinks about cops.
He wanted to be a cop, he says. He claims his dad was a one – an Inspector, no less. In fact he claims that the character of Sgt. Cryer of ITV’s “The Bill” was based on his dad. And if that was not melodramatic enough he claimed on Koptalk that his dad committed suicide.
Others have noted that if his dad was a cop he would have been in the Yorkshire force and familiar with some of those in the South Yorkshire force who were found culpable in the death of the 96 Liverpool men and boys at Hillsborough. And it has been suggested that this might explain why Oldham – alone among owners of LFC related sites – tries to undermine the organisation run by the families of those who died at Hillsborough referring to it as “too political” and why he refuses to support the boycott of the S*n and promotes the S*n on Koptalk.
There’s no doubting his obsession with cops. Before he discovered Koptalk he used to sell radios tuned to the frequencies of the police and emergency services – illegally listening in on their private messages. He admitted as much in a Usenet group message we will feature later. In it he explains how the police came to his house (on other business he does not disclose) and spotted one of his radio receivers tuned to their broadcasts. He got into a spot of trouble over that.
Then there was his new web site about terrorism. But that blew up.
And last year when the blog started to bite, he returned to his familiar cops routine. He had had a word – he said – with his friends in the force and they were unto us. We’re still waiting.
But Koptalk says it is the No. 1 LFC site for mature die-hard Liverpool supporters.
So you’ve paid your ₤30 and you’ve let Koptalk stick an automatic annual renewal order on your PayPal account.
That’s when you discover the videos are mainly about Duncan Oldham, and his half-brother manservant Steve MacNeish, as they hang around airports and clubs and chat up “prozzies”. By their own admissions, neither of them are “die-hard” Liverpool supporters.
And if you don’t like their videos you can post your own videos from You Tube.
And the Koptalk Podcasts are also about the same two sad clowns, sometimes wearing Arab costumes and dressed as women. They are built around an unfunny joke about the size and shape of Steve’s ears, peppered by paedophiliac jokes and comments as one or the other tries to read football news from yesterday’s papers.
But today’s Koptalk Podcast featuring nothing but Cops reinforces what we have always said – that Koptalk declined as a meeting place for LFC supporters when Oldham took over from the founder and tried to turn it into a site about himself rather than about LFC. He wanted to become an internet “A” celebrity and a cult leader.
And if that’s what you want for your ₤30 – a site about Oldham – don’t be surprised when you’re served up stolen video clips about Cops.
