S03E27: Out Of Our Misery

Posted in Uncategorized by aroundthebloc on May 6th, 2015

That's it for another season - there were tough times, injuries, bust-ups, people turning on each other, swearing at each other, people leaving due to poor conditions... and that's just the podcast.

The team finished on a bitter-sweet note however, winning against Guangzhou but losing out to yet another injury time winner which just happened to be at another game in another country. Now, more than ever, we look forward to the off season, until a month down the track when we all miss the A-League and want it to come back.

But that's football, and this is Around the Bloc.

S03E26: Copping a Spray

Posted in Uncategorized by aroundthebloc on April 28th, 2015

It's the end of the season and the bad results weren't the only thing that left fans in tears as the RBB conducted its annual protest at the eleventh hour, giving everyone something to talk about despite losing 2-1 to Perth.
On a brighter note, the boys discuss the more positive points of an otherwise dull season, and Ivan discovers that North is just geography, not a state of mind.

S03E25: FFD-Who?

Posted in Uncategorized by aroundthebloc on April 14th, 2015

Ivan returns to the podcast this week as the Wanderers return to the bottom of the ladder, and its Pistolita vs Kennedy vs Turner in a triple threat Hell in a Cell match when the conversation turns to our injury replacements and their pedigree.
We all know by now that the Mariners beat us, but do we have a chance at not coming last? Probably not much of one, but we can still fight our way into the round of 16 in the ACL, though we’ll need to hold our collective breath while we risk smelling defeat.
All this, emails, failure in the FFDU awards, and heaps more, on this episode of Around the Bloc.

S03E24: A Bit Howsit Going Friday

Posted in Uncategorized by aroundthebloc on April 9th, 2015

The weekend was long, but so were our match day experiences, watching another two draws - but at least ATB Feedback provides us with good food stories to tell this week, whether or not meat on Good Friday is your thing,

In other news, we interviewed Victoria Guzman, a Wanderers W-League player and big fan of the club, we talk potential transfers, the upcoming six-pointer with the Mariners, all my religious intro puns get stolen, and a certain member of ATB and La Banda gets told to put a sock in it.

All on this weeks episode of Around the Bloc

S03E23: Bloc, Rocket, Beats

Posted in Uncategorized by aroundthebloc on April 1st, 2015

It was another mixed week for Wanderers fans, firstly obtaining all 3 points against Brisbane in one of their highest wins ever, and then heading to the West Coast for an unfortunate loss. The travelling RBB did their best to show the Perth fans how it’s done, and despite the loss on the field, it was a clear cut contest who won off it.
We do have the ACL to look forward to in the next week, as well as a match against Melbourne City who we’ve beaten recently - if history repeats, this could be our most successful fortnight of the season!

S03E22: You’re Coming Down With Us

Posted in Uncategorized by aroundthebloc on March 24th, 2015

Another week, another winless run of games, another lot of injuries, and another journo getting his facts wrong. Not much has changed in Wanderland since our last show, although when we say we want to see the youth, Popa listens. This coming week though, we stray further from home than Ante Covic with trips to Brisbane and Perth, and with not much to play for, we can only hope to ruin their seasons instead.
In other news, Turner talks transfers, we all talk DIY, and ATB starts posting pictures of food, trees and our freshly painted toenails on our brand new instagram account.

S03E21: Unhappy Meal

Posted in Uncategorized by aroundthebloc on March 18th, 2015

Well, you win some, you lose… most - We beat one Melbourne team and then, despite actually playing reasonably well, lost against the other one. We saw glimpses of the kind of play that can win games in style, but it could be too little too late for this season.
In positive news, the youth and fringe players got a run and they all did us proud. Our ATBFeedback responses echoed our calls for these guys to be used more and more, and we may just see that as we take on FC Seoul in South Korea this week, where we may have more of a chance at getting 3 points than you might think.

S03E20: For Nato

Posted in Uncategorized by aroundthebloc on March 11th, 2015

Each week, we talk about our chances against our opposition, and each week this year, bar one or two, we've been let down. ATBFeedback this week asks the question - should we use the rest of this season to roll the dice with our youth players, rather than tire our first team out even more? We've got 2 games in 3 days so is now as good a time as any to take the pressure off our increasingly fatigued seniors?
We also talk about our recent losses against Brisbane and Guangzhou, but unlike our controversy-laden Champions League game, we go far more than 17 minutes overtime.

S03E19: Admit None

Posted in Uncategorized by aroundthebloc on March 3rd, 2015

It was a bittersweet week for us Wanderers fans. First we scored three and won, then we scored another three and lost. Then we had chorizo, then we had the ACL ticketing fiasco - it's been a hell of a roller coaster. On another note, with Bulut firing, the immediate future is looking slightly more positive, but what about the long term?
We discuss this at length and so much more on this episode of Around the Bloc
