Koptalk is in a sad state now, which obviously is good for us. Members are fleeing the site, and it looks like even more are on their way out. One of the arguments I meet from those who still wants to stay at koptalk, is that they enjoy the banter and the discussion, and that they like the set-up. Whatever that means. As far as I can see most LFC forums are set up pretty much the same way, and the banter and discussion is as good or better on those I’ve had a look at.
Koptalk once used to be a great place to discuss LFC matters. But that must be several years ago now. These days there is nothing but fights and quarrels. Half of the posts seems to be about a few members who have chosen not to slaughter the owners, and most of the rest is about which “Insider” has the best information, or who was first to post this or that about a transfer or whatever. Oh, and I almost forgot the most active thread: “Word Association game?” with 3500+ posts. How anyone can think that koptalk is the best LFC forum around is beyond belief, but at least you have to pay to be there. None of the others can compete with that!
Just to show you what’s up at the moment at koptalk I’d like to quote a few posts. One member has noticed that there are lots of members leaving, so he started a thread about it:

I for one would like to say don’t go….
I know there are various reasons for people leaving, but everyone here really makes this place what it is….
If you still leave take care, and I hope you come back…
He got a few answers such as:

Well I’m not leaving yet … but if we get more of the “what if the Yanks were assasinated” type of threads on here I will be. Some of the idiotic cr*p on here lately is unbelievable.

Can totally agree with people leaving – contemplated it myself if i’m honest. With the way people are being on here, the general state of affairs the club is in and the fact that those with insider knowledge are being shot down on a regular basis and we aint really gettin any exciting info as a result.
Remember when we used to get good solid info about Torres (back in 2006) then Fowler coming back etc. Think people gettin worried about being shot down.
Whatever happened to the mole? and didn’t the insider have his own forum? things a little lacking, whether it the site, the sorry state of Liverpools affairs or due to the simple fact that not many have any info anymore!
Actually, the Torres info was everywhere on the net, and koptalk members were probably the last to hear about Fowler’s comeback. But you’re right, it’s even worse than this now.
In another thread some poster was worried that we’re broke because Spurs seems to be buying Dos Santos from Barca. Yes, that’s right. On koptalk many members think that Liverpool were after him just because Dunk said so. Just look at this:

Posts: 125 Dunk has said many times on here that we were in for Dos Santos and that Parry had held discussions about him. We could not agree a pay structure unlike spurs did.
Thankfully not all koptalk members are as deluded as PJ:

And you believe everything Dunk says?? You have an awful lot to learn, he is right sometimes but a broken clock is right twice a day.
Good point there. With the amount of rumours he spreads around the site, and the vague “inside” information he feeds his members, he’s bound to hit the target at some point. It’s like picking the lottery numbers. You’re bound to get a few numbers right once in a while. That doesn’t mean you knew the numbers before the draw, does it?
