fair point but when they came back I don't think either were on the all whites radar. What would have been the harm to have a look to see if they were in fact better then the Rufers and Ridenton's or Ausi cast offs?

If they flew at the Nix, were selected then you sort that issue out then - it's actually a good problem to have

I hope whatever happens with the windows that we reverse the policy that has been in place, it's the only competitive advantage we have over the Ausis and we need to use it.

Why don’t the Nix and NZF have a chat. Nix agree to try sign more Kiwis (ideally from Handy Prem) - which is only good news for NZ football. 

In return for the next 2 years, Schmid agrees to pick only say a max 3 Nix players for the AWs if said AWs game(s) is during the A League season. 

Any AWs game in the next 2 years pre 2020 OFC Nations Cup is just a friendly, and so like today doesn’t have to be a full strength team. A time to experiment.

Of course this may require NZF and the Nix to behave as adults, and put any petty differences aside for betterment of NZ football - so probably too much to ask.

Was intresting to hear that Fritz was very happy with the 'fringe players' during the time he had with them in Spain. Rumours are he wants another look at a lot of them which is totally understandable. But even more intrestingly was that Stuff suggested that these fringe players might be ahead in the national team pecking order of the likes of Wynne, Tuiloma,Colvey and Gleeson. Even though Schimd understands that these players are trying to cement their positions in their MLS sides. He admires Micheal Boxalls desire to play for the national team despite his MLS duties.

Great post and they have actually done this before I believe? Struggling to name the game but I know it has happened 

Auckland will rise once more

Have either of these players at least had a trial with the nix since they have been home?

Good question. 

If I were to speculate, I would think not and don’t recall anyone mentioning it here. The Phoenix were on an anti kiwi recruitment thing (paraphrase) because of no international windows. Once that’s officially sorted, they would be players I would trial

Payne, Howieson, de Jong, Gulley and many others would all be quite comfortable in the A-League

That’s a liberal application of “quite comfortable” but if people think Ridenton is good then those players will look like rockstars

Yeah if I have to look subjectively I only see the first two as potential difference makers

Thought reports on Howieson were not standing out in Handa Prem like the Seamonster obviously did. Payne is better than Ridenton or what?

Also passing thought re the Nix. Schmiddy got his badges?

Just wondering about Storm Roux. He was named in the squad, then Gulley was called in and NZF didn't name who he was replacing. Then Storm Roux ends up playing for CCM last night and missing the All Whites game.

Does anyone know what happened here?

He didn't travel because of 'personal reasons'. What does that mean I don't know

CCM had a quiet world in his ear?  Maybe they blocked him previously which led to so little game time under Hudson.
