Producing his Magnus opus on the history of the greatest game: a rugby Alanmanac if you like.

Shhhhh.

I hope so.

My worry is he started producing the pieces of his magnum opus at about the time we started being consumed with the AI's.

I hope the old character didn't take offence that we weren't entirely overwhelming it with loving scrutiny and sort of disappear as it were.

So Mr Mackey, if you're listening then come back and post some more, the rugby is over. I'm all ears.

Oh, I don't know why he's leaving,
Or where he's gonna go,
I guess he's got his reasons,
But I just don't want to know,
'Cos for twenty-four months
I've been posting along with Alan,
Twenty-four months just waiting for a chance,
To tell him how I feel, about his all black almanac,
Now I've got to get used to not posting here with alan...

(Alan, alan, where the Frak is Alan?)

My guess is computer problems and his telecom provider has changed his email address and screwed him over again.

There are more left field options like he was arrested at the ground in Dublin because he had a BB gun and fired it at the Irish players which made them "charge" early. I like the idea of Alan as an MIB operative ensuring the preservation of NZ's record. His Anglo-Scot background is just a profile. He was born actually in Hokitika and left in a rugby clubhouse and was taken in by the NZRU and trained in the ways of the dark arts. Alan is just laying low. His cover was almost blown. He will reemerge under the cunning subterfuge of alanemack39 but until then we'll just have to put up with his posting "accomplice" GE.

Nice try mate. We know you're standing right behind us. Keep up the good work. clap

I wonder if he's on an MIB scouting mission, scoping more Polynesian talent for extraordinary rendition to the Canterbury unit for naturalisation and training, before the poms get their greasy mitts in?

He's probably lost in the malanthropes. GE swallowed his loss in his comical antipodean gut.

Gatland forgot to get things done initially. But then the Lion Queen backed up and found him.

He had health problems which meant that he didn't post during the entire Lions tour. Hopefully the Larry King of these boards is fit and well.

Sorry to hear that. Hope you've recovered Alan. At least the ABs gave you a decent get well present though I hope you didn't get to see the Ireland game in particular as that wouldn't have helped the blood pressure.

Yes. Welcome back Alan. Restored to rude health I hope. But sympathies with your financial loss to Mr Gates & Co.

You haven't heard from Gloria's Umpire have you?
