no comment from him in the press release so I'm gonna to assume he is the fall guy for the Olympics. Rob Sherman will probably take over.

So he accepts responsibility for a cataclysmic fudge up and gets to stay till the end of the year?

Give him a cardboard box and tell to be gone by 5pm.

Thank Christ Fred jumped now for the rest, Martin, Hudson ,Beasley Gothard ,Readings Robinson, and Sherman. let's own our game and get Kiwis involved. Fred got rid of a lot of good people,  administrators and coaches. The last time we had a shambles like this we got rid of McGowan and Smalley and the game went ahead.

so in the last few days the NZF President goes to mend the bridges with the OFC and De Jong is sacked. This means the eligibility hearing went as well as the All Whites did v Mynamar and the guys are scurrying around trying to limit damage with the OFC and Martin has his fall guy. 

Martins hands were tied here. He is not responsible for checking eligibility per se etc so it was either Fred, Rob or both. We really are none the wiser whether this was a governance issue (ie there was no Board and CEO endorsed process for player recruitment/team selections and clearance for international comps and no internal review set up) or whether the processes and checks and balances were not adhered to. If it's a governance issue then the CEO and Chairman are as culpable as Fred is. 

Martin seems to be a man for change (think the TV deal, public articulation of his vision for football etc) and not one to stand still. We will see what sort of CEO we have over re next few months..,

PS- we need some games in Oct and Nov so we can talk about something else

Really?  That's quite the chip on the shoulder against NZF. I think many of our problems stemmed from FDJ and Frank Van Hattum.  Both gone now thankfully.

Martin seems to have done more for promoting the NZFC/ASBP the last two seasons then has happened in years.

If we consider the length and cost of how long it took the previous, unloved Christchurch City Council CEO to leave his post to be the golden standard of NZ public service, then I think we should consider ourselves lucky with FDJ's departure so soon on the horizon.

I think this well and truly signifies that NZF admit they got it terribly wrong. If not, why not wait until the outcome of the appeal and then claim is was simply a matter of wrongly interpreting the rules. Martin said today there will be a full report coming after the appeal is over, I hope they make it public because it needs to be if they are to save any face at all and go foward.

I listened to Fred on the radio and I have to give him kudos for taking responsibility for his department and walking - If Blatter could learn that trick, football would be in better shape. That being said, I think he knew he was probably going to get fired over it anyway.

The one thing that struck me was that it felt like on the radio, he was saying that his team should have sorted it and he is taking responsibility for the errors of the team as HOD. I guess he feels he has done no wrong but is doing the right thing.

I don't know Jeff..... If it was an honest mistake or something of that ilk, then why would he be resigning? They would be able to weather that storm I would have thought. He must of been under pressure to resign because there was a major fudge up [beyond being a mere mistake] for that to happen surely? If Martin is as switched on as some presume, he would be getting rid of the deadwood/incompetents and Fred is a victim of this clean out. This really is going to be a test for Martin in how he plays this whole thing after the appeal.

Well, there is the U17 debacle as well. 

Fred might have felt marginalised due to Hudson calling the shots on coaching appointments when you would expect it to be the High Performance Manager who decides on and implements the coaching/management framework.

Or Fred finally felt he was out of his depth and decided to put his feet up...
