A few weeks ago, Duncan Oldham had a rush of blood to the head and made the following statement:
Dunk 21/07/07 05:42 PM
I’ve set myself a target of attending every home game next season and have accomodation booked up for the first half of the season … I’ll be back in the UK from around September 1st once the transfer window has closed.
But the owner of the website for “diehard reds” had forgotten the small matter of our first home match of the season – the league game against Chelsea on Sunday. Oldham would have already failed to meet his “target of attending every home game next season” when he arrived “back in the UK from around September 1st”. He is so thick and lazy that he hadn’t even bothered to check the fixture lists before lying about the games he would attend.
Now Oldham has remembered that the season begins in August and has declared that he will fly in to Liverpool today and attend the match on Sunday, as pointed out by onefinalpush earlier. For reasons known only to himself, Oldham chose to make this announcement on his shoddy blogs, which are accessible to all, rather than on his subscription-only website. Perhaps he’s worried that his KopTalk members will want to meet up with him. Take a look at this article to see how Oldham made a complete fool of himself avoiding meeting up with KT members at last year’s Community Shield match.
Liverpool & York Dates
16/08/2007 by Dunk.
Just a quick update to let you know that I’ll be in Liverpool from Friday 17th. We’ve a table booked down Albert Dock on Saturday night and then it’ll be the footy on Sunday as Liverpool take on Chelsea.
On Tuesday 21st the Ebor race meeting starts so we’ll be staying in York until the 24th. Hopefully we’ll be filling our boots!
We’re sure he’ll be attending the race meeting but it has been a fair few years since he dared turn up at Anfield. He has too many enemies there and he’s hardly inconspicuous. Oldham hasn’t even had the courage to attend games at the Nou Camp or the Millennium Stadium. He was in Barcelona for the match in February but, although he posted up several tedious videos of bad Spanish street theatre, he provided no evidence that he had been inside the ground. And who can forget the laughable charade of Oldham pretending to be in Athens in May.
So we’d like to remind him of our earlier challenge – we want to see video footage of himself inside Anfield with a copy of one of that day’s newspapers. Having found time to make that bizarre, pointless and downright weird video of Steve showering this week, we’re sure he’ll be able to spare a minute to prove to the world that he’s been to Anfield. And we want another video for each game he claims to attend. Surely that isn’t too much to ask?
This is a strange moment for Oldham to be going on one of his “jollies”. KopTalk’s server move still hasn’t been completed. It is now weeks behind schedule and continues to cause needless aggravation to his paying members. Yet Oldham still refuses to help transfer members over to the new site himself.

Re: Dunk, where are….. [Re: Dave100]
Sorry but I have no idea. I’m not dealing with the transfers.
So what is he spending his time doing? Enjoying the Spanish sunshine? He certainly isn’t devoting it to KT’s paying members – he made a grand total of 12 posts yesterday and 15 the day before that. And he still hasn’t finished updating the database for his SMS alerts. He initially promised to have it sorted by the time the season started. Then he said it would be done for the Toulouse away game. But some members still aren’t getting the service they paid for.
Whats happened to the text messages.

Hey guys just wondering why the text messages have stopped coming my way. you know the ones with team selection, goal alerts and full time scores. Has it stopped for everyone or is it just me.
Still no team text??

My mate who is also a member and sits approx 20 feet away from me received his team text about 25 mins ago, but I got nothing?
Are you still transferring over as you said you expected to be finished in time for the Toulouse game
