S05E21: Harry Popa

AKA Harry Popa and the Philosophy’s Stuffed

The game this week didn’t provide a whole lot of talking points (at least none that haven’t been discussed to within an inch, or centimetre, of their lives) so we went all Q and A – ATB Style. Thanks to everyone for your questions!

S05E20: Perthetic

The hangover from the derby included a 4-0 and a 2-0 loss to Urawa and Perth respectively. Needless to say, the joy after our first win in Homebush was short lived, and we get to thinking about what we, as fans and consumers of this product, expect from the club we support.

With a tough game against Shanghai and then returning to play bottom placed Adelaide, it could be a long couple of months leading to the end of the season – unless things change for the better.

S05E19: Vincible

Saturday night was one for the ages – the streak was broken, the unbeatable were beaten, Santalab seemingly changed his entire temperament in the course of a week, and even a one-eyed monster could see what it meant to the WSW players.
Of course, the aftermath of the game has not been without controversy and whether it’s Chris Beath, Alex Brosque, the FFA or a painted piece of fabric – all the talk has revolved around giant dicks.

S05E18: Strike Farce

The performance on the weekend left a bad taste in many Wanderers fans’ mouths, and got us thinking that the problems at the club are deeper than simply what’s happening on the pitch. After airing our grievances (is it Festivus yet?) we try to maintain some form of optimism about the upcoming derby, with a bit of success, and wonder if Popa is just pulling our collective leg.

S05E17: Piss Fartin’ Around

That winning feeling returned to the lives of the Wanderers players and fans in the unlikely setting of New Plymouth, despite the best efforts of the referee and linesman to do their business on our clean sheets.

We’re only one game away from the final derby of the regular season and we’ve got one hurdle to overcome in the Central Coast Mariners – but they’ll be looking for their 3rd win on the trot so we’ll be finding ways to show that kebabs > fish and chips.

S05E16: Brissed Off

A late goal from Brett Holman sealed our fate as Brisbane scored yet another late winner, which led to plenty of discussion post-game about whether Tony Popovic still has a place at the club. Has he got the full support of the board? Or will he remain at WSW?
We then move onto the geography of New Zealand and work out where our next game is, and how to get there – then, with as much confidence as Popa had in stating that we’ll win this years Grand Final, we all decide that we’ll flog the Nix.

S05E15: Lach’d & Loaded

WSW Youth prodigy Lachlan Scott has scored his first A-League goal (his 3rd in competitive top tier fixtures at Campbelltown) and, along with a spine of other WSW youth, helped us along to our first win in what feels like a lifetime. And while Nova lost his lid, and the lack of EFTPOS facilities at Campbelltown was the difference between Kennedy having a delicious chicken roll and going hungry, the ground remains a fortress for WSW who have now won 3 out of 3 competitive fixtures there.

A visit to Brisbane looms, and while Lang Park is a similarly tough place to beat the home team, the travelling RBB will be out in full force on their tour of duty.
