After a solid performance in the opening round we figured that a team that got beaten 5-1 by their rivals would be a simple task. Wrong. This was a Mariners team looking to emerge out from under the waters.

 

The Hills/Liverpool team talk about the game, our top performers and preview the derby this Saturday.

605 - Gone For Glory

Arguably our greatest recruitment of players, a solid 15 week pre-season with an FFA Cup semi-final to be played, all the makings of a strong start to an A-League season and then Sunday happened.

 

We discuss the shock news that Popa'd up on Sunday morning and also preview the other teams and our first game of the 17/18 season against Perth Glory.

S05E26: Sent Auff

Western Sydney's mediocre season has finally come to an end at the hands of Brisbane Roar. We talk of what went right, and what obviously went wrong, and what we should have done.

There's football, tv quotes, one of the team says farewell, and the whole team says goodbye for another season - this is the final episode of Around the Bloc for 2016-17.

S05E25: Youth Tube™

Whatever happened in round 27, we were going to get an away final so Popa decided to mix youth, experience, and Ryan Griffiths for his team lineup. In the end, it was a hard fought second half which produced a 2-2 draw, putting us up against the Roar - meaning we'll have played them in every finals series we've participated in. A win there would have the FFA covered in more ectoplasm than Randy Marsh, knowing they'll take all the ticket earnings from a Sydney Derby semi.

S05E24: Pleading For Fifth

A fairly dull draw secured our spot in this years finals series so we look at how Popa's famous rotation policy may or may not be in full effect.

We also consider the fact that there may be one more Sydney Derby left this season, discuss the upcoming visit from Arsenal (minus all the good players) and Nova talks about (and is probably still talking about) his feelings on the 6 team finals series. Toilet seat, indeed.
