never say never...I understand what you're saying about the pride in their football, several nations can probably be categorized the same way and I can see what you're referring to if Hiddink or some other foreigner was hired people having the sentiment of "we don't need to hire a foreigner we have talent here " type of rhetoric, but by the same token I can def. see people not having a problem at all with it...

would be interesting if you ask your 5 friends how they would feel if the NT were to hire a foreigner, but not just any foreigner to manage their team, someone as respected as say Hiddink
