623 – VARcicalls

It did work in our favour in the end, but it’s VAR from the finished product.

Whilst ‘top’ referee’s were getting calls wrong in all sorts and the video assistant referee was probably playing FIFA instead, there was an excitement and fire in the crowd that we haven’t seen in a while at fortress Spotless.

Turner, Tatiyana and Nick discuss that all over the place game against the Jets, why VAR isn’t working and whether this could be the Wanderers’ best chance of a win over Sydney FC away at Allianz in many a season.

This is around the bloc.

S05E23: Corn With It

Captain Cornthwaite was pretty close to repeating Santa’s three goal haul as the Wanderers picked up a third win in a row against the Jets. With a new found momentum, enthusiasm and ability to actually find the back of the net, will Popa’s words about winning the grand final be replayed more often than ‘Holy Diver’ during A-League ad breaks, or simply become another forgotten soundbyte?

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.

S05E04: Finders (New) Keepers

The talking points weren’t exactly positive after our first game at the showground, after letting a 2 goal lead quite literally slip through our fingers, ending up with just a point.

With that behind us though, we return to our new Wanderland this Saturday for a game against a team we should beat… Should.

S04E24: Pod Depth

After a 1-0 win that put us into the ACL spots, which would give us a week off in the finals, do you feel like cancelling your season ticket?

Some fans might, but the rest of us will be there to watch our toughest contest yet against Adelaide, and the ATB team produces some word play that nobody in their right mind would be proud of – but that’s what you get when you listen to Around the Bloc.

S03E22: You’re Coming Down With Us

Another week, another winless run of games, another lot of injuries, and another journo getting his facts wrong. Not much has changed in Wanderland since our last show, although when we say we want to see the youth, Popa listens. This coming week though, we stray further from home than Ante Covic with trips to Brisbane and Perth, and with not much to play for, we can only hope to ruin their seasons instead.

In other news, Turner talks transfers, we all talk DIY, and ATB starts posting pictures of food, trees and our freshly painted toenails on our brand new instagram account.
