Same old nonsense on Koptalk

by Outside Insider

It’s been business as usual for Oldham on KT this week.

He’s been trying to cover all bases by claiming “insider” knowledge of possible deals for every player we have been linked with, however tenuously. Often these claims come mere hours after similar reports appear on NewsNow. As ever, this scattershot approach is designed to allow him to appear wise after the fact.

We’ve had some pathetically vague predictions, including:

This week you should see some developments or at least welcome what you’re hearing/reading/seeing (progress). I am confident of this.

Well worth £30.

We’ve had the laughable sight of Oldham claiming he knows what’s going on within the club – but only after it’s been reported in the national media:

The re-signing of Carra and Stevie etc were due on Tuesday but the club got it out Monday instead. Despite this Tom Hicks appeared on national television on Tuesday announcing when the new plans would be submitted to the council. I class that as news and I knew it was coming on Tuesday

Tuesday I expected the Carra and Gerrard announcement but it came a day earlier, probably to ease off some negativity. I also knew that Hicks was going to announce that the plans were now ready. Those were the things I expected on Tuesday.

So Oldham knows what will happen on Tuesday, but he has to wait until Wednesday to tell anybody.

And we’ve had the lame get-out clauses. Oldham still likes to get his flimsy excuses ready in advance.

There’s even talk of a medical towards the end of next week (no specific names) but I would imagine that will depend on how Parry gets on this weekend.

We have sources at Melwood and no possible signings have been in or out all week. The only people present have been the scouts. That doesn’t mean that the club haven’t worked on deals away from Melwood.

He’s still saying he has “no control” over the negative press reports about TH and GG which he copies and pastes onto his site:

As I’ve said numerous times, these reports are coming from America not KopTalk. We post them whether they are good or bad. We have no control over them so sadly any conspiracy theories are floored.

Some people will certainly be floored by that last sentence.

He’s still quickly locking any threads asking him why he doesn’t sue the blog for libel.

He’s still having fantasies about sources “inside Melwood” who report to him daily:

Dunk, your source at Melwood, does he work there or does he live close by to there?
Either way have you spoken to him today?

We’ve text today and the only people there are the scouts. If you live nearby look for the small orange car that is usually parked in the first space down the right side as you look in… if that’s there, there will be 2 or 3 more – this is usually the scouts.

Rafa parks under the club badge, Parry is rarely at Melwood. Clerical staff etc park in the mini car-park to left with other non-exeuctive staff.

The club don’t though have to use Melwood for a medical or anything like that. This could be performed elsewhere. We’re due an evening update but our source has gone to ground this afternoon. We’ve text several times today and are awaiting a new update

He’s still having fantasies that Hicks showed him plans for the new stadium when he was in Dallas:

We were shown a printout of the new stadium plans by the main man himself, but there was two different Kops to decide between in terms of where the exits would be and how they’d be spaced out – he asked me which I would prefer for example and no I didn’t base it on the quickest way to the food at half time. They were also debating whether or not to have a red and white all chequered effect with the seats or just all red

18k Kop was discussed when we were there (so says Steve).

Oldham is now saying he’s in Valencia, perhaps to buy him time to rack up some posts under the many new aliases he seems be creating:

I’m currently in Valencia. I was out here a few months back meeting some people connected to the club (informal stuff, nothing exciting, not big cheese) and they recently called me to see if I’d like to go back to check out Rafa’s favourite eating joint on the outskirts.

    Last time he said he was in Valencia it was during the Barcelona game at Anfield “to check up Rafa” a convenient if ridiculous excuse to explain why he missed a major match and the opportunity to meet with his two new close friends – the owners.

    He also said a month or so ago that he would be taking up residence on 1st June – at least for the summer – in his new property overseas. That would be the one he showed his daughter and Katie visiting on video . He said then that it was a 5 hour flight but that would be to fool his creditors (and us) as to where it might be.

    He’s probably taken the privileged cultees with him because the guys on KT are having fun today running a thread about the blog and so far nobody has locked it.

    Ill post the screen shots later.

    KopTalk is also still depending on their members to get them the news about LFC. Earlier this week funkyman posted this with a link to the Official site:

    Xabi Alonso has signed a new five year contract at Liverpool which will keep him at the club until 2012.

    Official confirmation –>>

    No thanks to funkyman though for letting them know.

    “and they recently called me to see if I’d like to go back to check out Rafa’s favourite eating joint on the outskirts”

    I’m sure his members are thrilled to know that the ‘unwaged’ Dunk is off on another foreign jaunt for such a pressing isue. Is he planning a restaurant review? That’s assuming it’s true, of course.

  4. Hobbes Says:

    Appears that the thread mentioning the blog has now gone. Unsurprisingly it seemed to coincide with Dunk being online for a short while.

    Some of the responses from cultees about the blog were quite amusing. “If you are happy with koptalk you have no need to look at it” etc.

  5. Honorary Insider Says:

    “If you are happy with koptalk you have no need to look at it”

    Roughly translated means, “OMG I have been ripped off for £30, so rather than admit it to myself , I will simply bury my head in the sand, and pretend the blog does not exist”

    😀

  6. fat_boy_fat Says:

    I cant wait to see what comes of this little trip he has taken (if he really has)

    I cant for one minute even begin to think why someone would invite him to go to Valencia and see were Rafa eats!! What has it got to do with anything?

    “Tuesday I expected the Carra and Gerrard announcement but it came a day earlier, probably to ease off some negativity. I also knew that Hicks was going to announce that the plans were now ready. Those were the things I expected on Tuesday.”

    why didn`t you tell your members then? isn`t that what they are paying you money for ?

    “This week you should see some developments or at least welcome what you’re hearing/reading/seeing (progress). I am confident of this.”

    could you be any more vague than that dunk?
    every club in the premiership should be seeing some developments or hearing something on any given week in the transfer window.

    If he is going use “text” as a verb, i wish he would do it properly. “Text” can’t be the past tense. That would have to be “texted”. Sort it out fat boy!

  9. Koptalk Outsider Says:

    You may remember one of the so-called insiders, Private_eye_2. It’s been quiet from him for a while, and the reason is that his sub ran out in March, one year after he had registered. At least that’s how it looked. A couple of days ago he was back, and today posted this:

    Bellamy is set to leave with a deal close to completion with Aston Villa.

    Rangers have enquired about Hyypia and have been told no.

    Bolton and Villa having enquired about Carson and have been given an acceptable price.

    Liverpool have contacted Saviola’s agent to see if the player is interested.

    A 18m euro deal for David Silva is being negociated by Parry, which may include Luis Garcia going the opposite way.

    Link with a ajax youth player (not dutch) but no names…

    Cisse agrees 4 year deal with Marsailles but no agreement on fee between clubs
