That other guy didn't get many non Oceania games (admittedly he had a couple), against sides as weak as India, Kenya & Formosa.

Similar games from memory under Hudson - Myanmar (current ranking 138 - draw), Oman (84 - won), Thailand (122 - lost). He had more full strength squads than Schmid for sure, but all those 3 games were away (ie not at neutral venues).

Promising signs, but early days for the Austrian. And his close links with Heraf will raise some questions over his tenure.

Not to mention that the football Schmid wants us to play is infinitely more positive than anything under Hudson. Hope there’s no more lumping balls forward to Wood scoring zero against Papua New Guinea. Hudson’s like Heraf right now compared to him

Also, Schmid seems a lot less arrogant and is very willing to listen to the fans, public etc. and take criticism or advice, as opposed to Huddo who just brushed it off because he was above other’s opinions. Take for example Schmid coming to the forums to look for Kiwi players we wanted to be called up

Honest or gullible question. Schmid has come onto fan forums, for suggestions/opinions on what players he should call up?

Yup, I remember watching the story on Newshub when he was announced and they made a big deal about Schmid and associates listening to the fans to see which players they want called up, including browsing 'fan forums' (which means this one at least). It's how he called up Nikko Boxall and Niko Kirwan among others I think. I'm sure there's an article about it somewhere on the web

I can confirm I have heard the words "Yellow Fever" spoken by Fritz Schmid. It says more about the state of NZF's player database/tracking than anything. Not sure why people see it as a concern.

Don’t think it’s a concern, just a bit odd.

Did Hudson take his world map, and pins with him.

Why is it odd to gather information from whatever source you can?

I do know that the football manager game is often used for reference purposes

How nervous must Fritz be feeling?

He should be about as nervous as Des, Jose and Co. He might even fancy his chance at being promoted to the Technical Director.

I have no qualms about the style of football fritz had us playing in India. 

But given the whole 'chip and star' thing, my concern is how he would have us playing if we were playing stronger opposition.

I have heard that Heraf's 'personality' has impacted negatively upon the All Whites, but I did not hear anything that suggested that Fritz was a part of this

Considering Formosa hasn't existed since 1895, I am not surprised we beat them.

What do you suppose Fritz actually does? There can't be that many national team managers that don't actually ever put a team on the field, so what would his day to day be? He has a cushier job than someone at Metservice......

I'm guessing he's watching a lot of video footage of games his players are in. He wont be traveling as NZF dont have the funds fr that.

Interesting video made by Fifa. Fifa will be giving out more money to FIFA member associates in the period of 2019-2022 Is great for NZF as they will receive 6 million USD plus extras such us 2 million USD for infrastructure projects. This money wil go along way to help us get more matches and ones at home and against top oppositon.

$6M will certainly help. 

But I think attempting to qualify the AWs alone in the last cycle, reportedly cost $8-9M, and the only game at home of note was Peru in Wellington.

With UEFA, CONCACAF & now CAF (Africa) setting up Nations League competitions - availability of "quality" teams for friendlies will be getting thinner on the ground anyway.

If AFC sets up a Nations League, OFC and the AWs will badly somehow need to be a part of it.

To be fair to Schmid not sure what more he could do if he's not given any games to coach
