Dunk must be missing the free advertisement he claims he gets from this blog. Or at least his latest stunt looks like it’s aimed at us. Of course, we’ll obey his command and make a new blog post about it. After all, we don’t want to disappoint our favourite website editor, do we?
What I’m talking about here is koptalk’s latest attempt to get more cash out of their gullible members: The KopTalk Pints Appeal. Basically you can donate 5 euros to Steve or Dunk, and they’ll buy a pint and record a video of themselves drinking it. I know this sounds stupid, but this is actually what they’re doing now to get their hands on more money. They’ve set up paypal accounts for each of them, and at the moment Dunk has got two donations and Steve has got one. Here’s what it says:
Many of our members and our podcast listeners often offer to buy us a pint. Sadly, many of these generous Reds are situated all over the world making it virtually impossible to meet up and share a few pints together and they know that – we’re fat but we’re not stupid! However, thanks to this new site, we’re now going to call your bluff and take you up on your offers!
You can now buy either Dunk or Steve a pint and see us enjoy it. Buy us a pint and we will record a video in the pub thanking you for the pint! Your name or username will be listed on this site with your video! We will email you to see who the shoutout should be for!
As this site is new nobody has bought us a pint yet so maybe you’d like to be the first! A bottle of Magners cider varies from 5,50 to 8,00 euros around here but in our local we get discount so it’ll only set you back 5,00 euros!
Forget helping children in Africa or donating to heart warming needy charities in the UK. Family comes first… and we’re family, right? We work 7-days-a-week for you and get little reward… sometimes we can’t sleep for fear of not knowing where the next pint will come from. Please help stop this anguish. Please stop us from wasting away. Please dig deep and buy us a pint today.
You have to be stupid to fall for this, so it will be interesting to see who turns up on the list. Thankfully for them, they are hidden behind their usernames, unless of course they want their full name on the list. It’s hard, though, to imagine anyone wanting to show themselves as first class idiots, but you’ll never know.
So, is this just a stunt to get some response from us. It’s been a while since there was anything to report from koptalk anyway, and the forums are more quiet than ever. On closer look it could be that the conman, who just weeks ago was bragging about being able to buy a new house without taking up a mortgage, who has been filming himself waving loads of money (or copies?), who claims to run several successful businesses, who has a mercedes on order, who says he’s living of money from his late father and don’t need the money from koptalk subs, just may be a little short of cash and is getting desperate for ways to rip off his gullible koptalkers even more. As shown in my last post, Dunk wanted to get them signed up for several years membership, just in case they get fed up and wanted to leave, or if the site has to close down because there’s noone left. He has now set up the possibility to pay for two or five years membership.
Another sign that things are not so good moneywise in the koptalk HQ was his failure to attend the Champions League match in Madrid this week. He claimed earlier that he was going, even had the hotel booked, but when asked by a member if he was there he had the following answer:

I can confirm that I did….. NOT go to the game. Flights from Alicante to Madrid were really pricey (I’m skint!) and I didn’t fancy driving there. We looked at the train but it only ran from Alicante so we’d have had to drive there, park up etc.
Nah, I stayed in and watched it on the big screen
It must have been some other ugly git!
So you’re skint after all, Dunk? Can’t afford the flight? And what’s this about the train? It takes half an hour to drive to Alicante. What’s the problem? Remember it’s the club you claim to love, and you haven’t seen them live for a long, long time. You run a LFC website, but can’t be arsed to go to matches? Most of the Liverpool fans I know would make a real effort to get to such a game if they ever came to my country. Unfortunately we rarely have any teams in the Champions League.:) Could it just be that your not interested in LFC anymore? Could it be that you’re just in it now for the money? We’ll have to listen to what you say about this yourself, won’t we? After all, you never lie.

To be honest I lost a lot of interest in recent years. Watching on TV has done for me. I just don’t have the energy or motivation for travelling as much these days. I’m going to go to the Merseyside derby with my lad (8) for his first game at Anfield. I miss the games but I don’t miss the travelling. Plus I really do need to be with the site on match days as much as possible.
So you lost interest? Well, tell us something we didn’t know. It’s obvious for anyone that you don’t have any interest in LFC. Your love of the s*n shows us that. And the way you treat fellow LFC supporters also shows us that you don’t care one bit for the club or it’s supporters. You’re just in it for the money. That’s all!
