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
Episode 19 of In The Zone chats the newly announced Phoenix's international supporters networks, the Oly-Whites' and Football Ferns' performances at the Olympics, Fred de Jong's new high performance role, Olympic quarter finals and broken bones, red cards, penalties, goals, and shattered dreams in Chatham Cup semi-finals.
Episode 18 of In The Zone sees the panel chat to David Dome, General Manager of the Wellington Phoenix, about the new season and club membership packages, and the prospect of Team Wellington curtain raisers. In Olympic news, they assess the Olywhites' first game loss to Belarus, the Football Ferns two losses to Great Britain and Brazil, as well as the round one clashes in Groups A, B and D. In local news, Upper Hutt are crowned Premier League champions, the Central League heats up, and Chatham Cup semi-finals are just around the corner.
In Phoenix news this week, the pod looks at Chris Greenacre's and Michael Boxall's new contracts, and chat to Jeremy Brockie and Paul Ifill about the Olympics and Phoenix pre-season. Speaking of Olympics, there's a guide to the other groups, and a look at warm up games for both the Olywhites and Football Fern. And in local football, both Wairarapa and Nelson vie for ASB Premiership entry, while the semi-finalists of the Chatham Cup are found.
In The Zone this week we talk Sigmund's contract extension, the impending signing of Boxall and Fever tour to Palmerston North. In the New Zealand football segment, there's a dissection of the Olywhites' warm up games against Korea and Japan, as well as a look at their Group C opponents, Belarus and Egypt. And club football has a bumper Chatham Cup quarter final preview and we finish by putting the boot into Western Suburbs - find out why on Episode 16.
In our most crowded podcast yet, the panel is joined by Wellington Phoenix captain Andrew Durante and Andrew Scott-Howman from the New Zealand Professional Footballers Association, to chat Phoenix, recent A-League transfers, pre-Olympic warm up games, goal line technology, and a touch of local Wellington football.
The pod is back at it again to criticise the FFA for Phoenix/All White fixture clashes, chat with Ricki Herbert live from the Phoenix's open training day, and reflect on Kosta Barbarouses' loan to Greek giants Panathinaikos. The international segments looks at squeaky bum time at the Euros, and as always, local Wellington football gets attention.

In Euro action the podders assess their prediction ability and look ahead in the knockout stages.
As the fall out from Honiara continues, the pod talks the All Whites by dialling in Danny Hay to clarify his criticism, while also questioning Ryan Nelsen's non-appearance.
