Merrick angered after Nix's poor performance


Andrew Durante pleased with new-look Wellington Phoenix defence

Wellington Phoenix captain Andrew Durante
Wellington Phoenix captain Andrew Durante is pleased with the team's new-look defence for the upcoming season.

Last season's endless run of injuries and constantly rejigged back line are gone but not forgotten for Wellington Phoenix skipper Andrew Durante.

The Phoenix, who leaked 54 goals in finishing a disappointing ninth last season, have bolstered their strike force in the offseason, most notably with Melbourne Victory pair Gui Finkler and Kosta Barbarouses.

But coach Ernie Merrick has also recruited wisely at the back, and -- less than two weeks out from Wellington's A-League season opener -- Durante...

Wellington Phoenix cap fine preseason with win over Central Coast Mariners

Ernie Merrick
Ernie Merrick has been quietly satisfied with the Phoenix's preseason preparations.

Wellington have made it four straight A-League preseason victories, with Roy Krishna's second-half strike securing a 2-1 win over Central Coast on Saturday in Nelson.

Kosta Barbarouses scored from the spot in the 22nd minute to put the Phoenix ahead, but the Mariners drew level through Connor Pain on the half-hour.

Central Coast went down to 10 men before the break when Jacques Faty was given a straight red for bringing down Krishna, who was through on goal.

The Fijian striker's header early in...

Wellington signs Marco Rossi despite questions over match-fixing ban

Marco Rossi
Marco Rossi was banned for 20 months for his part in a match-fixing scandal that engulfed Italian football in 2011.

Wellington Phoenix coach Ernie Merrick is confident about the character of his new signing Marco Rossi despite the player being banned during the match-fixing scandal that engulfed Italian football in 2011.

The 28-year-old, who has previously played for Parma, Sampdoria, Bari and Perugia, has signed a two-year deal with the A-League club.

The centre-back was banned for 20 months in 2012, not for match-fixing but for not reporting match-fixing during his time at Bari.

While there was no mention of...

Merrick calls A-League salary cap to be scrapped: 'Let's just get on with it'

Ernie Merrick
Wellington Phoenix manager Ernie Merrick has grown tired of the A-League's salary cap intricacies.

Wellington coach Ernie Merrick has called for an end to the A-League salary cap, arguing the competition is too mature for a system that's become outdated.

Each club can spend up to $2.6 million under the cap but are allowed to sign two marquees outside of it along with a season-long guest player -- essentially a third marquee.

With loyalty bonuses and other conditions thrown in, Merrick believes the set-up has passed its use-by date.

"I just don't know why we bother with a salary cap," he told...
