Despite improving their home attendances by nearly 50 per cent and a significant upturn in their TV ratings on Sky Sport in New Zealand, the Phoenix still fell some way short of satisfying the contractual demands of their temporary A-League licence.

It is understood the size of the penalty increases for each year of the agreement.

If anything they've exceeded expectations and improved more that most other clubs. Looks like the FFA set them impossible targets to slowly send them broke.

They could have handed in the license and the Canberra, Wollongong or South-East Melbourne bids would have also joined the A-League this coming or next season. The owners knew what they were getting themselves into when they signed the contract. Their improvement to 8,533 average looks good on percentages, but it includes a 20k crowd outside their home city and it was coming off the worst average attendance of all the clubs last year at 5,694.

I knew about most of those, but they are potentially in dire straits next season

Oh no.  I genuinely feel bad for the guy and anyone else who ends up over there in current circumstances.

I like that they've misspelled him name when welcoming him.

Massive news if it happens. Doubt he'd play for the first team (ever), but still an interesting development.

That is pretty massive for Oceania football.  Is Singh a Fiji lad or NZ?

Singh's transfer's fee was approximately 800,000 euros. That's roughly 1.25 million NZD/AUD. That's going to help Nix.

They've got Marinovic which only had one goal last season so he'll be rusty as. I wonder if Talay is going to use him as 1st choice goalkeeper?

They have also signed Devlin from the Smurfs. It'll be interested to see if he'll get some game time. Smurfs barely used him. I also wonder if any other will follow Talay from the Smurfs to Phoenix.
