Large football 600v90 final

Podcasts

Phoenix City. The newest podcast covering New Zealand football. Phoenix City was founded in July 2015, after the In The Zone podcast ended and a Phoenix sized hole was left in the podcast market.

If you're listening to Phoenix City, you're listening to:

Patrick, the podcast's producer, head honcho and a rubbish referee. He is on Twitter: @patrick478

Cam, also known as Photomac, Yellow Fever's resident photographer. You've probably seen him wearing a bib at Phoenix games. Cam tweets at @NZPhotomac.

Dave, he’s big, he’s bold, and he has Opinions about Football. Twitter: @NZ_Dave

Andy, the podcasts head football analyst. Sadly, he's only half decent at that. He is also on Twitter: @FrostieDaSnowman

    Phoenix City - Ams-strung

    The Phoenix stutter against WSW with some interesting refereeing decisions, but a quick turnaround before the next match against Brisbane gives the team a chance to bounce back. Tony Rradings steps aside, leaving the Men's U20 coaching role vacant - will we see a familiar face return?

    Phoenix City - Mixed Pens

    The Phoenix pick up a win and a draw in matches against Perth and Adelaide, but could Ufuk have earned all three points if he didn't rotate the squad against Adelaide? The schedule settles down a little bit for the Phoenix now, as we look ahead to the next match against WSW.

    Phoenix City - Restart

    The season is back underway, and thanks to the VAR being axed for the rest of the season, the Nix went down 3-1 to Sydney. Will they fare any better against Perth or Adelaide, and will the All Whites actually face Belgium?

    Phoenix City - Mullet Man

    The Phoenix are back in action against Sydney FC this weekend - could this one match end up deciding the entire season? An exodus of players from most other clubs is occurring, and NSW looks increasingly unlikely to be the place to host the rest of the season.
