With the spotlight on us, the crowd roared as we entered the arena and lined up on what was one of the biggest, most nerve wracking nights of our lives. The expectations were huge and the task ahead a gruelling one, but finally, after all the interviews were over, we readied ourselves and… we started recording the most important podcast of our lives. In front of ABC cameras no less.
Oh and the Wanderers are taking a 1-0 lead to Riyadh.
This is Around The Bloc.

S03E03: Chuckin’ A Tanty

Another bumper episode of Around the Bloc where we all have our turns at throwing a tantrum over the Derby D'Sydney result and officiating.
Most importantly though, special guest Alan Mtashar provides great insight into the world of Asian football and Al Hilal in particular, as we head towards the 1st leg of the 2014 Asian Champions League Final.

S03E02: Sincerely, Speccy

We lost to Melbourne on the weekend. Now, we're not 1-4 negativity, but it was a pretty poor performance. It was, however, the first time we've actually conceded 4 goals but it didn't seem to bother the 1,500 fans that travelled to see it.
In other news, the W-League team beat Brisbane at Brisbane which is something the A-League squad hasn't done in a while, and the Youth League squad beat Sydney, which could be a good omen for this weekend's Derby - the first of the season. The RBB will once again descend (or stumble) upon the SFS in the hopes of taking 3 points home with them in the 8th edition of Popa vs the Smurfs. Will we turn their little village into Gargamel's lair? Only time will tell.

We're back for a third season, and hopefully a third star on our logo. It's been a really successful off season for both the podcast and the team we podcast about - Around the Bloc has won some silverware, but can the Wanderers? Only time will tell as we enter the home stretch of the Asian Champions League campaign, as well as the beginning of another A-League season.

On the other hand, the FFA Cup was an FFFail, Speccy's first attempt at‪#‎ATBBeers‬ doesn't quite go to plan, and all those cryptic clues that we put out on twitter that noone even really bothered to mention? Well, you'll find out about that within the first few minutes of the show.

We promise you, it's worth a listen. This is the new season of Around the Bloc.
