Our new assistant manager, Iím told.
Kinda right, announced as a set-piece coach.

Ah got a name at least!
I'll give you that, still, a good guess.

Great in Crossroads. Welcome Austin

My dad's second car. 5 speed gear box, 8 track player, walnut veneer. Lovely.

Mine too, a shit brown Austin 1100 with tan velour seats, donít remember the veneer.
I do remember him buying a Princess Van Den Plas from an Austin worker for cash in the car park at Longbridge, never seen so much money in all my days before.

Be good to have a Villain with his own personal limerick.

There was a young man named MacPhee
Who was stung on the neck by a wasp.
When asked 'Does it hurt?'
He replied 'Not a bit.
It can do it again if it likes'.

Seems like O'Kelly made way for McPhee.
Hear good things about Austin and if truth be told never heard anything about acumen or innovative stuff from O'Kelly . Just he was affable. Best of luck to him.

The ability to be affable in between the manager and staff and make things work is a real quality.

Dean Smith head coach not a manager. So this go between isn't the same as what maybe you're suggesting

He's the manager of a group of people. Dress it up how you like. As a manager you need trusted people around you. I hope Dean has a couple of coaches coming in. It is not all about their technical coaching abilities, their people skills are vital too.

And to add on that theme Dean And Richard had a good partnership as it were going back years to Walsall if not longer in coaching.
So there is much puzzlement on things. I'll bring any more chat on O'Kelly thread to honour him
I think he seemed and seems like very capable coach and Dean worked well with him.
Maybe Purslow got involved again like he did with Jack.

That name plus the fact he looks like Rick Wakeman with a beard leads me to conclude he's going to be a genius appointment.

It does sound like a name that would be in a film or book. IMO.

It will be in years to come. A Richard Curtis version of Moneyball

Has he actually joined? If the club have issued something, then I have missed it.
