    Will partner (or replace) Conor Sammon there.

    Falkirk should be nowhere near the third tier of Scotland; they're a big fish in that division and Sammon is banging on goals for fun this season (5 in 7)

    They're more usually a top half second flight side. But that's probably similar to the LoI's level

    Shows the disparity in earnings rather than the level of football they are capable of playing at. They can put their feet up, play at half tilt and still bang in goals at the latter end of their career and particularly for McMillan St Johnstone are probably still paying him a significant wedge. It's when he is retired and the money is spent that he might regret opting for money and not having targeted more medals and memories of European nights. Nothing particularly wrong with his choice but it is a common trend that retired footballers regret placing contracts as more important than the chance to win silverware. On a very different level but Alan Shearer one of those examples.

    Pat Hoban contract extension confirmed by Dundalk this am, new deal to run to end of 2021.

    He was out of contract end of year.

    Important deal to get done early.

    Given the shortage of genuine goal scorers in the LOI it made sense to tie this one up early. Especially if a competitor club was expecting a windfall anytime soon.

    Never thought he would move, not going to get a UK move with his past performance over there. Plus 7 goals from play for a team win in gv the league at a canter wouldn't have helped.
    His all round contribution for dfc is good but where else was he going to go ?

    Don't think rovers would gamble on him and he would be big bucks
    When is Georgie Kelly's contract up?

    Gamble ? Rovers would have signed him in a heartbeat if this didn’t go through. G Kelly doesn’t offer too much to suggest he can take his place, I’d be thinking DFC will go for another striker to be honest, need more firepower for Europe.

    It would have been no more of a gamble signing hoban for rovers than signing and relocating Cummins from Cork

    Cummins was hardly a big gamble, being a loan signing to the end of the season.

    The fact that someone at Rovers thought he could be effective for them was the surprising bit - but then Gary Shaw was also a regular starter!

    Hogan playing dundalk like a fiddle. Spending 3 months throwing his toys out of the pram , and gets what he wants. Rovers don't need arseholes like that.

    Its HOBAN but that was probably the least funny part of your rant.

    Relieved Rovers didn't get him TBH. Was excellent last season but looks to be slowing down but relied on penalties this year to pad out the record.

    Props to Dundalk and Bohs fans for bringing Rovers up at every opportunity though. The obsession is real.

    shams (by admission of EVERY hoop poster on here) have been crying out for a decent striker.Top striker in the League over recent seasons may be available, yet you find it 'obsession' that posters might connect the two ?

    Given your vast experience on here do tell what you find so surprising ? Personally, I would find it more surprising if he wasnt linked with a potential move to shams.

    Aaron Greene or Pat Hoban hmmmmmm.

    Rovers would take him a heartbeat. They have a ridiculous amount of midfielders, but badly lacking up front.

    Greene 11 league goals from play this season for a team in a distant second place
    Hoobin 7

    Probably neither is the answer at this stage, if i could choose id take Georgie Kelly based on goals per minute and age
    Thomas Oluwa could be first choice next year or maybe spend the kind of money it would have cost to get Hoobin and find another Gary Twigg somewhere.

    .
    Hoban clearly not the answer to Rovers goal drought seeing how he is contracted to Dundalk for the next 2 seasons. Georgie Kelly could yet become available if Dundalk secure the speedy striker they are seeking.
