The elusive Turner returns for a stint on the podcast that David Villa would be proud of, and with everyone else showing up for once, the team was 6 strong. 6 is also the number of games we’ve played in the A-League without a win, but despite what’s happening up in Brisbane, the Wanderers fans seem to be giving King Popa all their support, which they express in this weeks apparently silly ATBFeedback. The question of the week segment is back also, and is answered by Ivan.
On the bright side, we’re unbeaten in 2, and we cover both the Mariners and Newcastle games, as well as the upcoming Sydney Derby which is a must win for so many reasons - namely the bragging rights that come with it. It could be a first loss for Sydney and a first win for us, or it could potentially see both teams at completely opposite ends of the ladder if things go Sydneys way. Hopefully it’s the former.
This is Around the Bloc.

S03E07: Min. Power

Well, the Wanderers lost again this week - but given the team line up, is there anything really to worry about? The attitudes of the team and fans alike are positive, but some improvement has to be on the cards.
We found that the podcast needed some improving too, so we introduce Question of the Week on this show, and I give a long, detailed history of podcasting which I’m sure is going to be as much fun for you to listen to as I had telling it, and I didn't even insult anyone in the process. Well, I don’t think I did - I'll keep an eye on twitter though. There’s that, W-League, Youth League, Nikminnit and all the other stuff on this weeks episode of Around the Bloc.

S03E06: The D

The trilogy has ended and we are Alan-less this week, as well as Ivan-less and Turner-less, not to mention still win-less in the A-league and Santalab-less, because he is shoulder-less. We can't do much about missing podcasters or the need for surgery, but, like Seyi Adeleke, the Wanderers need to turn around and head in the right direction, and they can begin in Perth where they play the Glory this weekend.
One thing we are not missing this week is Speccy, who has returned from Riyadh to tell us a few tales of the road, and why he thinks Qatar should retain World Cup Hosting rights, and if you haven't already turned this off to log onto twitter and abuse him for it, thanks for staying tuned - this is Around The Bloc

S03E05: Got It!!

2014 AFC Champions League winners!

Special Guest Alan Mtashar returns to complete the trilogy as we discuss the Wanderers' historic victory in the AFC Champions League Final.

There's pride, tears, food, tangents and plenty of laughs. Pretty much everything you'd expect from another episode of Around The Bloc.
