Wellington Phoenix Update

The A-League season started months ago, so this update is to cover all games. The Phoenix, under their new coach Ufuk Talay, have played brilliantly over the course of the season. Even with many of their best players leaving last year including Sarpreet SIngh and Roy Krishna.

They are 4th in the table, with 7 wins, 3 draws, and 6 losses giving them 24 points. In their 3 last games, they lost to Brisbane Roar 1-0, beat the Newcastle Jets 2-1, and lost to third placed side Perth Glory 4-2.

The Phoenix are also 1 of only 2 teams to take a point or more away for Sydney FC, the leading club. They are the only New Zealand club in the A-League, and I’m sure you will enjoy their matches if you watch them.
