710 – DEFEND!!

DEFEND! This is all that Josh wants from the team as they continue to frustrate the ATB crew. We talk about stadiums (terrible ones and the ones dreams are made of), we talk the good stuff coming from the WSW team (ie Majok and our attack – mostly), and we talk the things that don’t seem to be improving yet, eg DEFEND!

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.

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.
