629 – Ce-hoodoo

Another trip to AAMI Park (albeit improved), wasn’t enough to get a much needed win against Melbourne Victory.

Some players who’ve been under the interrogation lamp showed us the better light, while others might as well have been found with their pants down.

It took the VAR way to long to tell us that Kosta Barbarouses was randomly selected for an extended Easter break, but Turner wastes no time in telling us what he did over the weekend whilst Tatiyana is ready to fight him.

Also included is the talk of new players and the managers potential length of stay, whether next to no opposing active fans is why the travelling numbers are low and does Turner eat Stalactites more than three times a day?

This is around the bloc.

The Best and Worst of Wanderers vs Melbourne Victory (Rd 25)

A-League Round 25 vs Melbourne Victory 31/03/2018 AAMI Park 1-3 Loss Don’t forget to hit those share buttons, check out all the previous Best and Worst editions and subscribe to the podcast Every week I think I’m going to struggle to come up with a list, and every week I exceed my own expectations. Better output than this […]

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?

S04E26: March Mediocrity

The Wanderers were essentially crucified due to a mediocre performance against victory, and will need to rise again on Friday against mariners to have any chance of finishing in the top 2.

ATBFeedback confirmed our concerns and things will need to change in the last few weeks if the club is going to keep the fans happy.

S03E25: FFD-Who?

Ivan returns to the podcast this week as the Wanderers return to the bottom of the ladder, and its Pistolita vs Kennedy vs Turner in a triple threat Hell in a Cell match when the conversation turns to our injury replacements and their pedigree.

We all know by now that the Mariners beat us, but do we have a chance at not coming last? Probably not much of one, but we can still fight our way into the round of 16 in the ACL, though we’ll need to hold our collective breath while we risk smelling defeat.

All this, emails, failure in the FFDU awards, and heaps more, on this episode of Around the Bloc.

S02E25: Twist and Shout

I get by with a little help from my friend Ivan on this week’s podcast, as Steve is on his way back from the USSR… or Japan, and Turner’s off being a paperback writer or something.

For starters, a huge shout out to the travelling RBB who went on a magical mystery tour to Japan. It made us all proud to see them standing there and we all wished we’d bought a ticket to ride

Unfortunately though, it’s been a couple of hard day’s nights for the Wanderers, who are gently weeping after two consecutive losses to late goals, and that has left some fans refusing to give them all their loving. The team won’t be able to buy their love though, so Sgt Popa’s Lonely Hearts Club Band will have to earn it back with a good performance against the Roar on the weekend.

We are the Walrus, and this is Around the Bloc.
