611 – Quick Maffs

3 plus 5 is 8 from 6 games that’s… undefeated.

Well, that’s one way of looking at it. Another would be winless in five.

Gombau was in charge of his first game against the club he was rumoured to be coaching a couple of seasons ago and with a new manager change is apparent in playing style, personel and attitudes.

Surprise starters and scorer, testy temperaments and a referee who needed a video replay to correct his own mistake.

The Best and Worst of Wanderers vs Melbourne City (Rd 6)

A-League Round 6 vs Melbourne City – 12/11/2017 AAMI Park 1-1 Draw Welcome to another edition of the Best and Worst series. Please sympathy hit the share buttons as I write about yet another draw.

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?

S05E13: Franjic, Flukes, and Other F Words

After a couple of weeks off, the ATB team return to status quo – the squad isn’t firing, we still haven’t won, and now we’re about to play our biggest rivals who haven’t lost a game.

So while we’re not looking forward to the immediate future, we do consider our options and talk about food a fair bit to cheer ourselves up.

S05E08: Clouded Vi$ion

Kerem ‘Cloud’ Bulut produced one of the greatest goal celebrations in our short history, but it was not to be as a legitimate goal was called offside in a tense draw with Cahill City.

The result of the next game against Brisbane is as unpredictable as the kit they’ll be wearing, with both teams inconsistent in their form so far.

S04E18: Around 100

It’s ATB’s 100th episode and what better way to celebrate than to see the Wanderers play a game that takes years off our lives and makes us feel 100.

We also run through some of the better moments of the last few years of the pod and basically pat ourselves on the back for a little while

All this on the 100th episode of Around the Bloc.

S04E15: Blew It

Wanderers were royally screwed in the city game on the weekend and we all felt pretty hard done by, despite conceding three goals. The Derby d’Sydney is this weekend so that’s giving us another game where we’re able to look forward to an unjust outcome, which we’ll know all about as soon as we’re assigned Kris Griffiths-Jones.

S04E07: Red and Black Friday

Technical difficulties didn’t stop the podcast tonight, just like City, Victory and Mariners couldn’t stop the A, W, and Y league teams on the weekend. With less controversy than a marquee striker’s first goal, but more excitement than his celebration, this is Around the Bloc.

S03E24: A Bit Howsit Going Friday

The weekend was long, but so were our match day experiences, watching another two draws – but at least ATB Feedback provides us with good food stories to tell this week, whether or not meat on Good Friday is your thing.

In other news, we interviewed Victoria Guzman, a Wanderers W-League player and big fan of the club, we talk potential transfers, the upcoming six-pointer with the Mariners, all my religious intro puns get stolen, and a certain member of ATB and La Banda gets told to put a sock in it.
