631 - Theventh Heaven

Mediocrity should not be rewarded and thankfully for us, it wasn't. A narrow 3:2 loss to a resurgent Adelaide United meant the Wanderers were knocked out of the top six and now get to regroup or find new clubs for next season (we're used to it).

Turner, Tats and Nick discuss the shambles of the game, plus also looking at the winners of the Wanderer's medals, looking into the knock-out 'semi's' for this week and our State of the Game podcast with Fox Sports hosts and special guests.

This is around the bloc.

ATB Extra - The RBB Boycott

On April 6th a statement from the RBB (Red and Black Bloc) to boycott the remaining Wanderers A-League fixtures for this season was released.

629 - Ce-hoodoo

Another trip to AAMI Park (albiet improved), wasn't enough to get a much needed win against Melbourne Victory.

Some players who've been under the interogation lamp showed us the better light, while others might as well have been found with their pants down.

It took the VAR way to long to tell us that Kosta Barbarouses was randomly selected for an extended Easter break, but Turner wastes no time in telling us what he did over the weekend whilst Tatiyana is ready to fight him.

Also included is the talk of new players and the managers potential length of stay, whether next to no opposing active fans is why the travelling numbers are low and does Turner eat Stalactites more than three times a day?

This is around the bloc.
