      Stop being so bloody cynical, whoever you are "Hockey fan". The brits get plenty of ice time for Phoenix, as much as the other two, and are called upon when needed. Adam Walker filled in the gap on the second line when Parez was out injured, and Joe Miller has shown his class. Matt Rich and Rado always put 110% in and get their deserved ice time. Matty Compton is the only player who really hasn't had a chance yet, mainly because the team hasn't had a chance. Most games have been competitive (expect the two which weren't and was used for them and brought on the ice in Newcastle and Edinburgh).

      Whether you want to believe it or not, Phoenix are (again) doing their part in helping brits get better, they're giving the chance for the best british players to come and player higher level hockey, and when the junior development gets going properly, this will become even more efficient. This is the way forward, and hopefully we will start to play our part in helping GB become successful once again a few years down the line.

      We could do a lot worse, instead of looking to develop brits we could throw money at the best brits to get them to play for us - say like I don't know maybe Sheffield with Jay and Thommo. By the by, if you had any knowledge about the sport in this country, you'd know they were there last season and chose to stay there for other reasons, possibly Sheffield being the more established and successful organisation. Possibly the coaching. But anyone would be insane to think they chose Sheffield as a second-alternative.

      Hockey is back in Altrincham, and the Greater Manchester. Its not perfect just yet, but the same coaches that made Alty so successful are back here and ready to make it great again. If you don't like the way things are being handled, Tough.
