Phoenix pitch invasion

When a pitch invasion is not a pitch invasion

Phoenix pitch invasion

The far-fetched and in fact totally invented article from the Dominion post

I have been in the media a stack over the last week talking about the Wellington Phoenix and yesterday I had an interview with Brendon Telfer from RadioSport.

It was a great interview and we covered quite a few topics including the team’s playing style, spending money on players, player development and my approach to running the business.

Another topic that is also discussed is the far-fetched and in fact totally invented article from the Dominion post on my “pitch invasion”. This article is coming from the same writer who I criticised in a piece I wrote the other day about the overly negative reporting coming out of the Dominion Post. The papers desire for scandal in sport is seriously compromising its objectivity – frankly I’d call it a joke in this area.

The first part of the interview below deals with what I was doing at training.

As usual I welcome constructive comments from the Phoenix fans and will do my best to answer questions.
