627 – Slow Split Round

With all the talk of managers leaving, players having tantrums, coaching staff complaining about kebabs and more, there was a lot to talk about in this looooong podcast primed for your traffic-heavy delayed travel to work.

Turner manages more works per minute once again, Tats is requesting you to just “@” her and Nick is a tired man who gets yelled at.

Why? Listen and find out.

626 – [Title Retracted]

Stephen and Josh are back to talk all things football on and off the pitch. We look at the Wanderers comprehensive win against Wellington Phoenix, veer off into a discussion about what’s wrong with the A-League (again), football in this country (again) and then get angry and frustrated at fans’ treatment at certain venues and in the media (again).

625 – Around The SellOuts

We were sold on the SkyDeck at Spotless Stadium for the match against Perth Glory, albeit not sold on the game, but it was nice to be out yelling and having a bevvy at the SkyDeck bar (more can be seen of our ATB live reactions.) here. We also got to have a chat with Fox Sports’ Adam Peacock and our very own midfield man Roly Bonevacia, (who knows when to shoot… you’ll hear why).

The view was good, the game wasn’t. The weather was good, the attendance wasn’t.
Apart from that, there was still a fair bit to cover and Turner, Tats and Nick were at the helm of this one.
