Rovers transfer guy on Twitter who’s seems to know his stuff says Hoban will NOT be signing for Linfield.

Well Linfield are looking for a striker after Lavery left,so wouldn't be ruling them out of making a move in July for Hoban.

Hoban will NOT be leaving is what I heard. He recently said it was all just rumours too.

If as expected (I think) P6 do pull out end of the season, remember they will have to find a buyer, even if this is for €1 with any debts taken on, we need to start thinking about what happens next. I'd say more than good chance they will move on as signs are there they are probably in what they deem to be the final phase of offloading. The first was when Mike T left, then next was when Bill was appointed, one year contracts and now the silence speaks volumes, so for my moneys worth this is their final phase.

If we can somehow finish 4th, and a top 3 club wins the cup, or we win the cup !! thats europe and the coefficient of 10.5 + this year still in place for next year, so its still a good purchase investment. Don't make europe, less so, and the 10.5 reduces each year we don't play, and gone after 5 years I think.

So who might the potential buyers be?

PS a good point made on the podcast yesterday 'The men who saved football', if P6 had any decent about them, they would leave this years euro money with the club so we can rebuild. I wonder will they?

The 3 points for 2016/17 are already gone. We are currently on 8.5 - and that includes a point for being in QR1 next week. Each round is worth an additional 0.5 points. So 2.5 points for getting to the playoff round (QR4). There is nothing extra for getting to the Group Stages, other than the opportunity to earn match points, 2 for a win, 1 for a draw. From where we are now, if we picked up another point, I would be over the moon. Of course it means nothing if we don't qualify for Europe next season.

17/18 - 1.00 points
18/19 - 1.50 points
19/20 - 2.00 points
20/21 - 3.00 points
21/22 - 1.00 points
Total - 8.50 points

We're 10.5 for the current season. We lose 3 from 5 years ago at end of this season and currently we're on 1 for this year. So we need to match the 3 from 5 years ago to keep at 10.5 next year. If we lost this round we'd be at 8.5 next year (lose 3 and gain 1 point).

Prize money now has a 10 year ranking element but seeding is still 5 years.

Just gonna share a tweet I got under the DFC Fancast tweet about the McEleney piece
Common knowledge there’s an attempt going on behind the scenes for a takeover but only if there’s no debt. The other issue is the wage bill and the ability of a new consortium to pay those wages. That’s why they are trying to offload the high earners beforehand.
