so so this ^

40 years of bollocks and poor direction, we've made it to two world cups, the first ('82) was the hope of a new era in NZ football - and yet the board managed to squander the money and nothing changed in local football. The second (2010) we were promised that the mistakes of '82 would not occur again. What's improved? Absolutely nothing, we've had payouts, legal costs and limited competitive game time since September 17 when we drew with the Solomons. I'm not counting the Canada closed doors friendly.

Don't forget the money we pissed away on the eligibility fiasco

I've kept quiet about it but I was reliably informed that the AWs were going to play UAE in the UAE this month.  I'm guessing the shark storm that NZF found itself in put paid to that.

If true that's a pretty fudgeen sad state of affairs. Going forward the annual November window, is only the FIFA window when will be easy to have most of the large MLS contingent available.

At the moment UAE only have one game in November this year against Egypt.

Even a basket case country like Venezuela, managed to assemble a team in the UAE back in October for a game.

I still DON'T UNDERSTAND how hard it would be to piggy back on one of the Aussie friendlies and play a game there?!

Getting a bit off topic, so moved to 2018 International Friendlies thread.
