KopTalk Lie Again About Gillett and Hicks, But Irony's Not Dead

Apologies for the lack of updates. We’re still here and we’re still watching, but there’s been so little to report in the past few days, and I don’t want to post for posting’s sake.

KopTalk’s been very quiet, even by its normal standards, and that’s not because the new site’s a hive of activity; at the time of publishing, only 241 members have been transferred, including moderators and admins. But don’t just take my word for it…

Guys i have been moved and at the moment there is not a lot going on there, so until most people have been moved i would not be in a hurry

Dunk’s been running KopTalk for 8 years or so now, yet he still seems unable to complete a routine server change in a reasonable time. There have been countless moans in several threads about support tickets and phone calls going unanswered. All this incompetence makes you wonder whether the following response might actually be true or whether he just doesn’t want to divulge how low the figures really are.

When the move is complete we will have the new total. However, it’s not quantity but quality we like here, which is why we bin people who spoil your time here.

Yesterday, we had one of the biggest announcements in the Club’s history. Whether you’re eager for it to happen, accept it reluctantly as a sign of the times or you’re a staunch opponent of leaving Anfield, it’s probably the most far-reaching decision that will affect our footballing future within most of our lifetimes.

So, what was Dunk’s take on this? I don’t know, because he’s kept his counsel remarkably well, though he did still find time to write an editorial about Dudek’s move to Real Madrid. All very odd, considering how Dunk and Steve claimed a lengthy meeting with Tom Hicks, in which they said they discussed transfer budgets and saw plans for the new stadium, something Steve didn’t hesitate to remind the KopTalkers about a few days ago.

I cant wait to see these plans. It will be interesting to see what/how many changes he has made since we saw them.

Silence since then, however. Strangely, no members have even thought to ask whether these are the same plans Dunk saw (ahum) in the US. Perhaps none of them believed it in the first place? They shouldn’t, because KopTalk’s meeting with Hicks was more like a brief visit to his office, and both owners are now fully briefed about him.

So, could it be that Dunk’s finally going to stop insinuating a relationship that doesn’t exist between him and our new owners? Then again…

Yes I have their email addresses. An editorial here and there and postings on the forums do get noted 🙂

Noted by whom, Dunk, and how? Hicks has never been a member. Gillett’s account was accessed once and once only — when his office logged in to cancel it. You’re right in a sense, though, because I’m sure that forum posts of this nature are noted when they’re published on the blog. Meanwhile, stop lying to your members to give them the false impression that their views are being heard when they use your dying site. They’d be better off using the independent fans’ survey that your pariah site wasn’t invited to be a part of.

Of course, KopTalk members are used to being subjected to bullshit, so maybe that’s why some of them find it harder to spot it in the offline world, too. There was another thread yesterday about a premium-rate rumour line.

It’s about the fact that they want you to believe they have the info of the century so that you ring them/ visit their website and make them wealthy.

In reality they know jackshitt and are probably distorting/ making up a story for the above aim. 🙂
“If democracy is ever to be threatened, it will not be by revolutionary groups burning government offices and occupying the broadcasting and newspaper offices of the world. It will come from disenchantment, cynicism and despair caused by the realisation that the New World Order means we are all to be managed and not represented.” Tony Benn

Notice the piercing insight there from johninashed. Unfortunately, I think the irony was unintentional and that his insight has failed him at least once this year; round about 18th January, in fact!

Thankfully, there was someone on hand who recognises bullshit when he smells it, being quite an expert in these matters.

It’s nonsense. Dismiss.

I couldn’t have put it better myself.

Postscript: I just accessed the stats section of the blog’s dashboard and discovered that we’ve had over 100 visitors directed to us today from the BBC’s discussion forums. You can see the thread here, but it seems someone was ‘innocently’ asking what the news was on Simao and Quaresma, as advertised by KopTalk. However, assuming the enquiry means the poster has no access to KT, then how did he claim to know they had been ‘spot on’ about other transfers?

For the record, KT were not the first with any of those deals named. The most laughable of the three claims there is the Babel transfer, when Dunk pretended he already knew only once Chris Bascombe revealed it in The Echo and after Sky Sports as well. Thanks to Obispo, whoever he or she may be, for sending the curious here instead.

And if you’re wondering what Dunk had to say about Simao and Quaresma, then keep that £30 in your pocket, because here it is.

Simao Sabrosa’s proposed transfer to Atletico Madrid is stalling due to the player’s wage demands.

It is claimed that Simao is demanding a wage of £67,000-a-week which is putting Atletico off pushing the deal through.

Benfica have reportedly accepted a bid of £12.7m for Simao, which is well under his £16.7m buy-out clause.

Atletico have been trying to recruit Ricardo Quaresma (above) but so far they have been unable to reach an agreement with Porto.

Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez is a fan of both players so he’ll certainly be monitoring developments, especially after sniffing around Quaresma earlier this month.

Supporters should also keep an eye on any developments involving the duo.

So, once again, keep an eye on the press, folks; nothing to see there. More proof, if it were needed, that those misleading headlines hide reheated news from elsewhere.

    For the benefit of anyone who read this before about 9.50pm, I’ve added a postscript.

  2. Didihno Says:

    Does anyone else get the feeling that anyone left there by now is quite happy to pay for common knowledge?
    Sometimes I wonder if we should care that idiots are getting ripped off, because they seem so willing.

    Then I remember the new suckers, kids that wander on from foreign climes. These poor lambs are innocent to Dunks cheating lies. And they must be warned.

    Keep up the good work.

  3. Ron Nasty Says:

    Yes, anyone left on there now deserves the rip off, it’s newcomers that need the warnings.
    Is he still making threads go to new pages after 3 or 4 responses so it looks like there is lots of discussion?

  4. 1892 Insider Says:

    They seem to go to new pages after 10, which is a much smaller number of posts than for most forums I’ve used.

    I try to use the ‘all’ option as often as possible, to increase the server strain. 😉 ‘Blistering fast’, it ain’t.

    By the way, there are now 268 members on the new site, so they’ve moved just 27 over since about 9.30pm last night. How on earth can they be as busy and stressed as Dunk claims if that’s how slowly they’re working?

    Members are moaning about how quiet it is on KT now, presumably assuming that it’s all-go on the new server, but even Dunk himself is admitting it’s not. The fact is, KT is dying on its arse, despite his ludicrous claims that they’re moving because the site is growing.

    You can change that in your preferences. I think the limit is 99 posts pr. page.

  6. Dr Proctor Says:

    I find the following statement on Kraptalk just hilarious:

    You have joined the site during a site move. Basically our site is normally hosted at:


    but on 24th July 2007 we moved here, to:


    As a result we have thousands of members still on the old site which means it’s quiet here because of that.

    We are moving every member in here manually so it’s going to take at least a week to move everyone in.

    The old site will be closed on 31st July so you will see this place explode from around then.

  7. DAVE the BRAVE Says:

    What a load of absolute baloney! It’ll be a database. You don’t move members 1-by-1 in any database!

  8. Cum insider Says:

    He’s using it as an excuse to see who’s paid, whos due to get subscriptions stole again from their account and to weed out anyone he suspects of spying for the blog. My subscription ended and I’m glad I don’t pay him anymore, I got my eyes opened to that fraud!!
