Just like CJ in GTA: San Andreas says; “ah s***, here we go again”. A new season, new manager, new players but same attitudes. What do we make of this team and does it have enough to mount a salad platter or toilet seat challenge?
No, we’re not going to rag on Markus, quite the contrary. However some in the football world in the A-League have been bashing him figuratively over the last few weeks.
The Wanderwomen thrash Sydney FC by five (Sydney is red and black after all thus far), and sit close on the ladder to leaders City and quick rising star Mina joins us again for a look at the W-League.
The rest of the crew are back for our airing of grievances and discuss some talking points.
This is a merry around the bloc.
Newcastle away is a fun away trip, but when you don’t get a result the drive home sucks.
What doesn’t suck at the moment is the Wanderwomen who won their third straight against the Roar.
Muscat waiting in the wings? Ange king of Japan? Does Turner overreact?
This is around the bloc.
Byes are boring when your teams not playing on the weekend. Never the less, the W-League kicked off and the Wanderwomen started their season with a last-minute win against Adelaide.
We have a special guest joining us to discuss the W-League plus we find out who the Vuck aren’t fond of on their team, which player can’t remember Alex Baumjohann and our preview of City’s visit to Bankwest this coming Friday night.
This is around the bloc (we think)…
It was us against the new old boys and they came out on top by their two goals to our one.
Turner, Tats, Nick and Josh (Jaush) discuss not the game itself but certain elements of where we went wrong and where we go from here.
This is around the bloc.
Let’s be real, it wasn’t a game for the ages. A nil-all against Brisbane isn’t what we’d expect but it kept nil-all mainly thanks to the man between the sticks: Daniel Lopar.
We will discuss Lopar amongst many others alongside fellow Wanderers fan Pia who is also part of the RBB and La Banda (the drums of the RBB) for a discussion on active support plus the preview for the match in Geelong against newcomers Western United.
This is around the bloc and saved by Lopar.
And so it goes Wanderers 1 Sydney FC 0 in the first derby in Parramatta for many a year.
A tense and physical match was witnessed by nearly 30K at Bankwest and all is well in Sydney and the A-League once again.
Turner, Josh (Jaush) and Nick are joined by you to talk all things Sydney derby, ball experiments, praising players, referees and also previewing the next game against Brisbane Roar this Saturday.
Sydney is red and black.
Last episode was our own lads, this one is everyone elses.
We look at the other ten clubs and the squads with our best three and league positions.
This is Around the Bloc (league).
The season is a few days away as is the return home to Parramatta. The western side of ATB come together and discuss the current squad for the 19/20 season along with the preseason that was, our best starting eleven and what we can expect to see on the pitch.
This is the refreshed around the bloc.
Nick had his say on the Sydney Derby experience at the SCG and the aftermath that occured on Fans United with Athos and Louise on FNR.
