823 – Red Mist Covers Eastern Sydney

Two from two! Derby delight for the second time this season: same score line, same scorer, different location. The Duke of Western Sydney scored the lone goal as we gave Sydney FC their second loss this season.

We go through the match, the W-League making the finals play-off for the first time plus some general WSW and A-League news.

This is the derby Baumjohann hasn’t won a game in yet.

This is around the bloc.

822 – Derby CopWatch

Whilst there should have been only scenes of celebrations in the Sydney derby in Kogarah this past Friday, there were scenes that should not be seen not just in the A-League, but in sports in general towards the fans none the less.

In this special ATB, Tats and Jaush discuss the situation that unfolded between the travelling away fans (notable in the RBB) and the police geared up in riot squad uniform.

821 – Five Star Fight Back

After the bore draw against the Jets the previous week understandably spirits may have been down, but Captain Duke and the lads put up a fight to take it to dark horses Adelaide United where we WON 5 goals to 2. That’s amazing’!

Turner, Tats and Mina are making sure the show goes on (Turner especially) as they go through the win vs Adelaide, the W-League team and the upcoming reschedule Sydney derby.

This is around the bloc…I hope.

819 – Cox Seals JP’s First Win

JP took charge of his first match as head coach for a very long time and it proved to be a success with the Wanderers winning 3:1 away to the Central Coast Mariners with new signing Simon Richard Cox scoring on debut.

Turner and Nick took the drive up and saw the boys take the points while Josh and Tats looked on via the TV but all gave their input into what they liked, didn’t like and what they expect coming up in the Sydney derby.

This is around the Cox bloc.

817 – The Fall of Babbel(on)

The inevitable came through on Monday morning after a frustrating and performance void of any spark or optimism.

Markus Babbel’s run as Wanderers manager is over after a near year and a half and it hasn’t been the best. Turner, Josh and Nick are joined by the man-in-demand Stephen to discuss Babbel’s dismissal, what went wrong, look at the squads performance and what is needed to lift this club back to the top.

We’ve taken into account the time the VAR calls have needed and included that total, so this episode is an extra thirty minutes for your listening pleasure.

This is a Babbel-less (and Tatiyana-less) around the bloc.

816 – German Exports and Irish Imports

Nick is here with a solo pod giving you the rundown of what has happened in the last 24 hours (not even) in the world of Wanderers.

Alex Meier seems to be gone and Simon Cox seems to be due in from Swindon Town as we look to make a move on in the league to hit that top 6 or top 4 position.

Babbel is still under pressure so who knows if Cox’s inclusion will help him or not but the squad is looking healthier so we may see some familiar faces against Perth this weekend.

815 – Managerial Debate

For those that have been with us all season know that we’ve been critical of players and manager at times but this one seems to be the real go to for that conversation.

A recap of the W-League loss, the Y-League win, the loss in windy Wellington and of course the Babbel in or Babbel out debate.

This is around the bloc.
