Assuming Rob Sherman is only temporary, who's our next high performance director? Wynton? Ricki? Declan? The possibilities are endless

People like Coldplay and voted for the Nazis. You can't trust people.

The TV interview on the news (TV3) tonight was rather telling - the previous (old) chairman of the board saying "the eligibility rules are not new, they were changed years ago and we knew them, so homework on Declan Wynne should have been done by the current people in time". I read it as a veiled message that nobody in the old guard reads it as a "honest mistake".  

And it was nice to read the newspaper item with Kevin Fallon thanking FDJ for his work and not kicking the guy sprawled on the ground.

Rob Sherman is probably the smartest football person we have at NZF. Only been there a year. Want to keep him at least another 2 years. In that time he should be given his head to put good systems and people in place.

Kotahitanga. We are one.

Rob Sherman was with NZF as High Performance manager in 2007-08, you may recall. :-)

Reinventing the wheel, etc.

Rob is a very smart mind and a good pick up for NZF. I question if he is currently being utilised to the organisation best needs. HP director could be a step in the right direction.

Grumpy old bastard alert

After the stuff ups of recent years and the arrogance of  NZ Football its good to see those Board Members who were up for  re election get voted out. The remainder should re consider their positions as they are likely suffer the same fate

Wow, the winds of change are blowing for football on both sides of the Tasman.

Thoughts on what this all means? And anyone know more about the new people: John Ormond, Garry Carnachan and Johanna Wood?

John Ormond is a real coup for NZF, highly respected and great football heritage, son of Iain, nephew of Duncan, grandson of Bert. Not sure of the others.

Stranded in Leyton Orient-induced awfulness and still missing a band that split up 36 years ago.

Yes, he's a highly respected business man.

I know Jon through work but had no idea of any interest in football.  Extremely good operator, well connected in Auckland business circles, no idea about his football involvement but he is very smart

Normo's coming home

No I don’t. John is a pretty down to earth guy and in my limited dealings seemed ready to give people a fair hearing. He’s had some big jobs so he’s certainly capable of it. This actually feels like quite a big deal, the federations revolting against nag, including over coaching appointments is a pretty big deal. There were some comments a while ago about how there would be repercussions if Herat appointed “one of his mates” which were Pooh poohed but seem to have come to pass!

ladies and gentlemen lets get control of our game her in NZ. Lets get Kiwi's running our game not some rugby plonker who obviously knows nothing about the game. All of the present coaching staff need to go and i mean Heraf, Schmid Turnbull Buckingham Jose Temple the whole F...king lot i really do feel sorry for those Kiwi coaches who have put in the hard work to get their badges and not get a look in.Beazley and Emblem will be back soon how's Martin going to fit two more arse lickers in. I hope this new board member Ormond has the balls to make the big calls that the game here needs.All this bad press is killing the beautiful game here in beautiful NZ
