What could possibly go wrong?
I can see upsides and downsides to the continuity argument.
On the one hand Andy's presence will counter any tendency by players to take liberties because Joe's leaving.
On the other hand, there might be conflict between the two if Andy tries to expand the parameters of his role prematurely.
On balance I'm glad AF is taking over. He's a strong character and apparently a great coach as well.
Seems like good top dog material.

'tis true an English man in charge, now how does that sit?
No problem for me anyway.
I remember seeing AF giving his son a pep talk in the hotel on the day Farrell Jnr made his England debut in Edinburgh.

Rubbish game. Freezing as well.

The Scots sat near me disrespected 'God Save the Queen' and I upset someone by telling him that I thought rugby was tom kite.

How things have changed for the both of us. He's dead and I'm an UR season ticket holder.

Houl'on Lionel, your saying Farrell is dead or is it his son? Result either way for my money.

If Nuciwankbasket would join the choir celestial my cup try would runneth over. As it is I'll just have to make do with the decent Genius in Stoker's.

Holywood home of some of the few hostelries serving adequate Genius in this forsaken shithole of a wee statlet.

NB when I type statlet I invariably envision Gerry Kelly the murderer, then I recall him hitching a lift on a peeler's land rover and gulder my ärse off. :lol: great moments in rioting.

WOA I dub thee, a cretin. You have less talent than Manchester United who were being supported by one Knocknagoney Mike this evening in Stoker's.

Mike I almost didn't recognise you without yer warpaint and Santa hat. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Waiting for the first time a player now intentionally drops into a tackle in front of the posts placing their chin on would be tacklers shoulder to milk a penalty.
