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 - Marco v1

    Marco's been released from Stuttgart, we discuss where he could end up and why it won't be the Phoenix. We introduce a brand new segment, complete with a catchy jingle.

    The team don't have much to talk about, so have a look at where the Phoenix and the All Whites are sitting ahead of the games kicking off in October/November. The Chatham Cup had another giant killing, with North Wellington making it into the quarters, and Patrick goes on a rant about players bitching about refs.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - Right Back

    After a wee hiatus due to a dodgy power cable, the pod are back and ready to talk about the start of the Nix preseason.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - Looking Back

    It's time for the inevitable season review. We look at what went wrong this year, who our standout players were and give out some awards.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - #PatrickOut

    Patrick takes a break from the pod, so it's one of our best episodes yet as a result. Hamish Watson gives us something to talk about that's relevant to the Nix, the pod rejoice in the tears of Besart Berisha and the TeeDubs are flying high at the OCL.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - A Smashing Good Night

    Three of the lads are recovering from the Phoenix awards night, but Frostie wasn't invited so he provides most of the analysis of the Phoenix's final game of the season.

    It's farewell to Siggy and Manny, and the TeeDubs are getting the job done in the Champions League.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - Beserk Berisha

    When the best part of a match is that part where Berisha got himself sent off, you know it's been a good match. Even if the scoreline was 4-1. The pod covers the different ways that any of the top four teams could win the league, Cam does Kiwi's Overseas, and there's a wrap up of Round 1 of the Central League.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - Coach Calcott

    Matt Calcott and Zen Yates-Fill from Team Wellington join the pod, and chat about that historic win over Auckland City and the upcoming Oceania Champions League.

    Meanwhile, the Nix lost to Melbourne City, and it's probably not going to get much better against the other half of Melbourne this weekend.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - Boooooooooo

    Doom and gloom for the Nix as they lose 2-1 to Perth and boo's ring out from the stands. There's no ASB Prem to talk about anymore, so the pod turn their attention to Winston Reid and Tommy Smith's chances of coming to the OFC Nations Cup.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - Campeones

    Celebrations all round this week, as the Phoenix knock off Sydney and the Tee Dubs knock off Auckland City. We work out what went right for the Nix, and discuss all the talking points from the ASB Prem Grand Final.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - Koming Home

    Kosta's coming home, which is good because the Nix just got humped 4-0 by Adelaide. It's good news everywhere else though, with the Football Ferns doing well in the Algrave Cup and Team Wellington making it into the ASB Prem Grand Final against Auckland City.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - Göteborgs Atlet-och Idrottssällskap

    The Phoenix pulled off a shock 2-1 win over Melbourne City despite playing without any strikers, and we discuss if they can pull off a similar result against Adelaide.

    Patrick sits down with Welnix chairman Rob Morrison and talks about the licence extension and David Gallop, while the ASB Prem regular season has wrapped up and it's time for the semifinals. Oh, and we have some fun with Google Translate too.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - 433

    Woohoo! We get 10 more years of watching the Phoenix lose to teams like Newcastle. Meanwhile, Hamish Watson see's double, and Storm Roux is a bit broken.

    The TeeDubs tripped up in their quest for a home semi-final, and Cam has his usual wrap in Kiwi's Overseas.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - KaPow-ell!

    Blake Powell joins the pod after scoring FOUR goals against WSW, and we talk to him about the 5-2 and look ahead to Newcastle.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - Winless

    Another tough week as a Nix supporter ended with a 1-0 loss to the Glory, and we chat to Glory fans as well as Andy Keogh before the Nix head to a flare-ravaged Western Sydney.

    Team Wellington kept their hopes of a top-2 finish in the ASB Prem alive, and Tommy Smith is getting married during the Confeds Cup! What a bloke.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - Shake It Off

    A trip to Christchurch doesn't yield a better result for the Nix, going down 3-1 to the Mariners. Ben Sigmund joined the pod to chat about the upcoming game against Perth, and we wrap up all the action in the ASB Premiership.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - Phoenix vs City

    So, the Phoenix lost again.

    Meanwhile, the Football Ferns are off to the Olympics and the girls U17's are off to their World Cup too, and the TeeDubs steal a last gasp point.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - FFS

    After another disappointing away result, the pod try to find some positives in the Phoenix's performance. Meanwhile, the ASB Prem has served up a cracker of a game, and the Womens U17's have been scoring goals for fun in the Islands.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - Soft

    It's been a strange old week, with us celebrating a 0-0 draw like a win, and Anthony Hudson coming out and labelling NZ footballers as "soft". The WeeNix went down to a late and controversial goal, and the Fever have cheap beers and free sausages for you at the TeeDubs game this weekend.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - The 'Zidane'

    The pod dissect the Phoenix's loss to CCM, and have all the talk you need on headbutts and elbows. Meanwhile, the ASB Prem is back from it's Christmas break this weekend, and we take some time to answer some listener questions.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - Lump of Coal

    So Patrick royally kazoo-ed up this week, and recorded the pod through his laptop microphone instead of the actual mic's.

    So as we talk about the Phoenix's loss to Adelaide, the own goals/red cards/penalties of the previous round of A-League fixtures and the upcoming weekend of games, we sound like we are recording in a toilet somewhere.


  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - 3 points please, Santa

    It's a Merry podcast this week, but the Nix haven't quite got in the spirit yet after their 1-1 draw with Sydney FC.

    Elsewhere, the Wellington Derby ended with the TeeDubs on top, and Cam's list of Kiwi's Overseas is shrinking.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - Feeling Hot Hot Hot

    It was hot in Cairns and that probably cost the Phoenix three points. The WeeNix were involved in quite possibly the most amazing ASB Prem game ever, and Cam has his wrap of Kiwi's Overseas.
