Not So Basingstoke-d with The Result, Are They?

Have a listen right here.

Another game that Phoenix fans were hoping would not be the banana-skin to let the top slot slip away, this week.

Most Phoenix fans know that Bison can be the bete-noir of our boys and were anticipating a narrow win or a narrow loss on Sunday at the Dome.

As it happened, it was a result that nobody saw coming especially with Basingtoke on form recently.

This week's show features a guest disclaimer from Bison media bod and friend of the show, Anthony Russell of Banners on the Wall.  Thanks to him!

No player interview this week as Ben is still suffering from a cold and doesn't want to pass on the germs to any of our lads at this important time in the season.

We hope you enjoy the show. Why not get in touch?  podcast@manchesterphoenix.co.uk

A Tough Weekend

Listen here.

Two points out of a weekend featuring an away game to the Flames isn't bad, for sure.

After being run pretty close by those pesky Wildcats on Saturday, the Phoenix jumped on the bus to the Spectrum and fought hard.

Sadly, a good streak for the Flames in the third period put the game just beyond the boys' reach and the Flames took the victory.

Never mind though.  Phoenix still have a game in hand and so the Flames have not got away and the space beneath has opened up slightly too.

So, onwards and upwards.

Sheffield Ship Six

It was time for Sheffield to try and shake the Phoenix-shaped monkey off their back.

It was time for Andre's bet with Tambo to be paid.  And glorious it was too.

It was time for Phoenix to nail the third game of their series with the pups.  And they did.

Have a listen right here.

Going For The Jokila!

Listen to this week's show right here.

What a weekend of hockey it was!  Down in Sheffield, where this week's show begins, we saw a game of hockey that few were expecting.  Of course, the result of it is two points for Phoenix and Payette being forced to wear a Phoenix jersey for a week....

James Neil will survive his crunch with Hirst but he's going to be sore for a while.

Then Sunday saw the first visit of MK Lightning to the Dome.

It was a tough, fast and physical game from the face-off and featured a bit of everything: goals, impressive saves, scrapping and a full-on line brawl.  It never rains but it pours with this particular visiting storm.

Anyway, for all the fun of the rollercoaster weekend and to hear how Phoenix are still sitting atop the league, get this show in your ears.

Catch you next week.
