    Yes heard it was the agent causing a lot of the sh't stirring in this episode with Hoban.

    Agents obviously get their cut from players contract terms and transfer fees so may stir for their own benefit, but the player ultimately calls the shots but Its easier to think the agent is the issue rather than than the player and club legend thats is still under contract. Maybe its a bit fickle by me but rarely convinced by players' kissing crests lierally or methphorically.

    Dont see how Hoban can say he was told he wasnt wanted at the club if that wasnt the case or is he that naive that he'd believe his agent if he was being an ass - the club could reassure the player problem sorted but were silent on the whole thing with no denial so not so much an agent acting up. Trying for better terms or a contract extension when the club was talking of p/t hybrid and budget cuts wasnt going to fly if that was the aim. It just seems most likely that prior to new ownership his wages were considered too high to keep on the books with club cutting its cloth. Assuming S'OD wasnt trying to offload him either.

    New owner, new money and maybe then the agent may now saying put yer money where yer mouth is and prove his player is wanted. The club should hold him to his existing contract and see how things go for an extension in due course. Hoban could show his loyalty and love for the club, a gentlemans agreement with the manager should be as good as a signed contract!! Capitulate and other contracted players may have noses out of joint, pushes up demands from potential signings, it all gets messy and expensive.

    Or its all set up for a big Christmas announcement.....

    Agree with most of that of that Nesta but my opinion is that Hoban's agent was very aware of a takeover at Dundalk ahead and tried to game that fact for his players advantage. That's his job you could say but bluff got called and it looks like they've quickly backed away from their demands.(Hoban and agent)
    Would expect him to still be a Dundalk player for '24 on terms agreed

    .....
    To be clear any talk of going p/t - hybrid / cuts, was only ever in scope if StatSports majority stake owners were still in charge come 2024, hence reason it was vital for the takeover to happen, so DFC could plan properly for the season ahead.

    Budget will be similar to 2023 now.

    It's the same around the league. Bohs have 18 players under contract still for next season and going by the reactions of some fans online you'd think we didn’t have enough to field a five a side team. Maddening to witness every year.

    Per this link, it seems Ainscough is stepping down from Boston to fully focus on Dundalk in 2024.

    Is he assuming CEO responsibilities? I read an article a week or so back he was saying he was assuming the CEO role temporarily before making a decision whether to appoint a CEO, if he is mostly over in Dundalk with feet on the ground rather than remotely in the states just after a takeover you would think it's better for him and the club

    Certainly suggests at least that he plans to be permanently based in Louth.

    I think the plan is to keep Martin Connolly in as COO, he is a brother of Andy (fastfix) previous 50% owner SK era and 1/3 with Statsports, also BA wants to hire a commercial manager to be in role as early as Jan, and more office / admin staff, so he seems to be re-vamping things, would imagine if he has all that in place, he will want all to report into him weekly, along with SOD as manager and B Gartland as recruitment / player liasion.

    I think I read that he hoped to be over on average a week out of every month. Maybe this will change now he has no commitments outside of family due to his resignation from the Bolts.
