S03E13: Catched

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.

S03E11: Finding Nemo-rocco

The Wanderers this week played in the club world cup, where they came off the pitch squeaky clean due to the weather, but couldn't keep their sheet in the same condition and missed out on their dream match with Real Madrid. The team now goes on to contest the fifth place playoff against Algerian team ES Setif, who we hope gets ES se-mashed.
With mostly away games coming up, we’ve got details of how the RBB will be getting behind Nato - flag making and waving extraordinaire - who’s having a rough time, as well as all the usual stuff as well.

Well, the Wanderers lost two games in the last week, and to top it off, the players are having issues with the clubs owners about their bonuses for playing in the Club World Cup… That’s right, the Wanderers are playing in the Club World Cup! We start off against a Mexican team, once we Cruz through them, things will get Real… really Real. After we Bale them over, we've got one game to win before we’re champions of the world.
Easier said than won eh?

S03E09: K-Gate

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.

This episode is brought to you by the Number 1 (in Asia), the number 10 (in the A-League), and the letter K.
