Ok if you don't know me, I'm very naturally critical.

But seriously, this is just another underwhelming, predictable appointment by NZF.

I'm going to put my hand up now and say this will be another four years of mediocrity. I expect this post to be quoted several times when it rings true.

But can he do a PowerPoint presentation?

I know nothing about the guy, but are we missing out on (potentially superior?) coaches locally through our obsession with a piece of paper (or focus on academic qualifications than practical head coaching experience/results)?

Hope he goes well, and at least doesn't piss in our pockets and tell us it's raining like the last bloke.

Also, he got his Pro license eons ago - so arguably some of his theoretical knowledge will be out of day.  I guess he has recent experience as an assistant coach of a NT...but I probably would have preferred someone with more head coaching experience.

I guess the proof will be in the pudding, as always. Four years is a long time to wait though.

Don't think it is a surprise to have a guy we know every little about, did we know anything about Hudson before he came here other then what we could find on the internet. We are hardly going to attract a big name that we immediately know.

While Fritz doesn't have a massive amount of manger/head coach experience has still got plenty of experience at very high level. Remember some assistants actually do more of the day to day coaching them managers of some of these big teams. 

He clearly knows his stuff with his role he has had as an educator for fifa. 

I don't see how we can write him off with hours of him being appointed. Give him a go. 

With the exception of Ramon who else in NZ would have realistically been in the running... 

Very much a Herf appointment which for me is not a bad thing, the 2 guys at the top will be on the same page from the outset, think this is shown already with the appointment of u17 and u20 coaches/assistance.

I've just written up and created a Wikipedia page for him, seeing as he didn't have one previously. Feel free to contribute! Spent a lot of time on this...

Curious to see how his editing skills match up to Huddo's

This from Liam Hyslop on Stuff here, which includes this piece...

There have been threats swirling around for weeks from certain groups saying they will rebel against New Zealand Football if their "worldwide search" for a new coach ended with the hiring of a mate of technical director Andreas Heraf.

We await the Rebellion...

I liked the quote of him saying that he will assess our players technical abilities and then he will adapt a playing style to that.  Sounds much more sensible than coming in and imposing your way on a team on which it doesn't fit - it's not club football where you can bring players in to fit your style.

Would be interesting to know where 'certain groups' come from.  Are we talking players, admin, people in the local football scene...?

Did anyone apart from Liam Hyslop actually hear these rumours before yesterday?

don't mind this appointment at all. Think it will be good for the Thomas's, Rojas's of our team moving forward.

At least this isn't a blatant stepping stone job like Hudson's was.

What's wrong with having a coach using the All Whites as a stepping stone? Ideally that'd benefit both parties. I think it's the type of coach NZF should have gone for.
