Not a Ghost of a Chance!

Phoenix are still riding high at the top of the league table after this weekend.  A clinical road game against the Wildcats and then a home game where the scoreboard tipped into double figures again!

So, some may talk about a team putting 11 past a young(ish) netminder, especially for the second weekend in a row.  I say this.  Firstly, I don't recall Peterborough taking it easy on young Jorge last season when Phoenix were well and truly beaten.  Secondly, no other team in the league takes it easy in those circumstances.  Thirdly, it's a sport.  It is unsporting to wind it in in a league where goal difference is relevant.  Or at all for that matter.  How patronising is that to young talent?

Rant over.

Shut outs a-go-go and we look forward to Peterborough returning to have another pop at us.  We'll be waiting.

Listen to the show right here.


  1. If he wasn't capable of being in the net he wouldn't of been put there his age has nothing to do with it, the best net minder in the world can have bad days give him a chance...........................oh Im phoenix all the way keep it up boys your doing well......

  2. Thanks Anon. I agree regarding this. He was a bit high-and-dry defence-wise until pretty late in the game and he was facing some very bold strikes.
    Baptism of fire it may have been. He'll be ready for the Phoenix when they next meet.
