As we wait in vain for anything of interest to happen on KopTalk, we thought we would look back at the teaser headlines which have appeared on the KopTalk front page over the summer.
With KT’s free forums closed and its stories banned from NewsNow, these intriguing headlines are probably now Oldham’s principal means of duping fresh victims into joining his dying site.
Please rest assured that paying him £30 would only have led to reports which you had already seen on NewsNow, icLiverpool, walkon.com, lfcpost.com, lfcwire.com, Google News and others. Apart from the stories which Duncan Oldham had made up himself, of course, like this little gem from May under the headline of “Parry and Benitez meeting”.
Rafa, Rick Parry plus one unknown (older) gentleman have just concluded a 3 hour meeting. We have no idea who the 3rd person is. We are trying to find out.
Well worth £30. Below is a list of some of this summer’s KT front page headlines, the stories they led to and the way they also appeared on NewsNow. It hardly needs saying that the NewsNow reports always appeared before those on KT.
So if you want to save yourselves £30, just visit NewsNow, icLiverpool, walkon, lfcpost, lfcwire, Google News or any of the fan sites a few times a day. And we promise to keep you informed here about the laughable crap Oldham makes up himself.

RAFA RAID UPDATE
Donaldinho July 24th
Guess there was a glitch earlier as this disappeared without being answered.
What was the Rafa Raid Update referring to on the homepage?
Surely not Garcia or Heinze because nothing has really happened – mayb e it was a ploy to snare people.
