KopTalk has been extraordinarily quiet of late, as has Dunk himself. It is worth remembering, though, that Oldham thrives on negativity and confusion. He has a long history of that, as readers will be well aware.
Just taking this year, he capitalised on the uncertainty over investment, for instance; then, when doubts began to be raised about the intentions of GG and TH after the takeover, he exploited that to the full. Also, his only recent controversies were both negative, S*n-inspired stories about Warnock’s rants and Crouch’s supposed discontent. So, while everything in the LFC garden is rosy, Oldham hasn’t got much to say.
Sometimes, however, people are at their funniest when they don’t mean to be. I’ve been watching a TV series lately that features a Tory MP, Ann Widdecombe, who gives us the ‘benefit’ of her views on various issues, one of which was prostitution. Among other things, she had beer thrown on her, and any valid points she may have had to make were lost in unintentionally hilarious posturing and moralising. I haven’t laughed as much in weeks.
It all reminded me somewhat of KopTalk. Dunk’s attempts at humour, usually in his podgecasts, are tedious and cringeworthy. We don’t mind, though, because we’re confident that far more members are repelled by his crudeness than are tempted in. Indeed, the feedback we’ve received in the past on both the blog and privately has indicated that he’s lost members that way.
In truth, Dunk is only amusing when he’s trying to be serious, like when he pretends to be ‘in the know’ about what’s going on at our football club. Duncan Oldham has no sources inside Anfield. Despite his previous claims, he has no gatemen on his payroll; no-one at Melwood tells him what’s going on. He used to claim that he socialised with players and had ‘forged links within the Anfield squad’. We have screenshots of these lies and they can be seen here. The sad thing is that many once believed him; the positive is that very few now do. He’s a laughing stock among the LFC online community.
This all brings me to his latest ‘news’. We all know that Gabriel Heinze lost his adjudication hearing, so he won’t be moving from Manchester United to Liverpool. It’s quite likely that Rafael Benitez had a secondary target lined up, in case of this eventuality. I don’t need ‘insider’ sources for that. My common sense sufficed. Dunk’s used the opportunity to make up some more bull (apologies if, in fact, it is true and Dunk’s just lifted it from another site).
#17497 – Yesterday at 05:19 PM Liverpool confirm double signing

Liverpool Football Club have confirmed the double signings of Mikel San Jose and Peter Gulacsi.
San Jose (18) is a Spanish centre-back who comes in from Athletic Bilbao on a 3-year deal.
Hungarian goalkeeper Gulacsi (17) is a product of the Sandor Karoly Academy, an associate organisation of Liverpool’s feeder club MTK Hungaria.
Both players were signed a while ago but the club have made the official announcement today.
Meanwhile KopTalk understands that Liverpool chief executive Rick Parry will be on the move later this week working on securing another first team player for Rafa’s squad.
The identity of the player is unknown to us at this time but with problems surrounding the Heinze transfer, it is surely common sense to assume that the boss will be looking at other options, even though the Reds have not given up on the Manchester United defender.
KopTalk sources claim Parry is scheduled to hold talks with an agent in Manchester. Manager Rafael Benitez will not be present.
So, Dunk has a source that knows where Parry’s going and why, but not who the player is. Of course. I’m sure that someone with that kind of confidential information would be straight on the phone to a fat spiv in Wallsend/Wetherby/Alicante for him to impart it to members gullible enough to pay £30 a pop. Dunk, you have a special form of delusion that I’m not sure doctors have yet diagnosed. I suggest you seek out help.
