Normally scoring should make you happy, but after we came... to Newcastle with high expectations, we left disappointed after a major anti-climax. It was a case of no glove, no love, as an equalising penalty was slotted past Covic and instead of a W, we ended up with a D.
There’s heaps of feedback from the listeners this week, Nick explains how he manages to actually research for the podcast whilst still being a superstar drummer in La Banda, and we realise that even clubs in absolute turmoil can still do social media better than those who aren't

Despite winning at the foot of the mountains, we’re still at the foot of the table, and although our expansive midfield kept us happy, the expensive water didn’t. We won our first game of the season and quite frankly - its about time. We head up to Newcastle this weekend, and hopefully head up the ladder as well.
In #ATBFeedback, we discuss the missing and weakest links in the squad, as well as in the communications from the club, where important information is still being leaked to fans over social media, rather than by more formal communication.

The Wanderers played once again in another country, and were unable to bring the points home. The rumours are flying around about players departing, but could it be the shake up we need? Or is it going to cause our chemistry rating too plummet further? We’ve got 2 games before the Asia Cup and then a well deserved break, so hopefully the team can bring us some New Year cheer.
We also hope that all of our listeners and contributors have had a great Christmas, and also have a happy new year - with love from Around the Bloc.
It was lucky we were recording on Festivus, because there were a lot of grievances to be aired this week, mostly against FIFA and the FFA and the usual, but there was also a lot of good stuff too, in particular the fundraiser for Nato and the Berthaly Family which raised 20,000 bucks! That’s an impressive example of how the Wanderers family sticks together whether the team is doing well or not.
In other good news, the Y-League team had a good win that we were actually able to talk about for once, and it’s the end of December, which means heaps of food, hopefully heaps of holidays, and a rare A-League game that actually features the Wanderers. We here at Around the Bloc wish all our listeners a happy Christmas or if you don’t celebrate Christmas, we hope you have a good time anyway.

The second derby of the season has come and gone, and the Cove and the RBB were both fans of the team that didn't win. Tomi Gun’s goal was cancelled out by a screamer from Ibini, and the Wanderers winless and undefeated streaks continue.
The club did, however, perform well at the AFC Awards night, winning Club and Coach of the Year. We lost in the spelling bee, but we hope to continue this winning form on the pitch against Brisbane and Adelaide this week.
