S02E21: La Banda-ing Together

A huge episode this week as two members of the RBB’s band, La Banda, join us to share their opinions on all the on and off the pitch happenings, which they drum into us, and are generally bass’d on their experiences in the RBB. Having been one of the cymbals of the active supporter group since day 1, they try not to repinique themselves as they recall how they formed, how the chants come together, and why they, for some reason, love Tom-Tomi Juric.

Also on the show……………………………………………….. thats right – the silent protest. We delve into the why, the who, what, when, the where and the how, as we were all grabbing our hair and tearing it out wondering what the hell was going on.

Sit back, relax and drop it like it’s hot – this is Around the Bloc

S02E20: Dynamic Duo

And then there were two. With most members of the team missing, the dynamic duo of Steve and Brendan bring you this week’s podcast which is more exciting than a backup goalie’s debut.

It was a perfect start to a long run of games for the Wanderers, and with the ACL looming, we turn our attention to the failings of Brisbane Roar and William Gallas. We give credit where credit’s due, though, to everyone’s favourite Wanderers player, Jerrad Tyson (as quoted in The Guardian), and our resident Spanish commentator has something special for him too.

S02E19: Nameless

With the Wanderers gameless, our podcast could’ve been aimless, if not for some questions which amazed us, sent through by listeners for a talkback segment that’s become famous, for rants and tangents and being totally outrageous and keeping Turner far from blameless. Our plugs are shameless, we hope listening will be painless as we try to offer you something different from the sameness and get to know you on a first name basis, and just like a really fat waitress we are Around the Bloc!

S02E18: En-Tyson

Everyones favourite Wanderers player, Jerrad Tyson, joins the ATB team for this week, and is a really good sport about getting bombarded with questions until late on a school night.

Berisha makes a nuisance of himself once again, so in the head to head between the Roar and the Wanderers this year, there’s been a 1-1, one team’s won one and one team’s won none. We find out who each podcasters mortal enemy is, Things We Could’ve Done Better Last Week almost makes a comeback, Jerrad offers some insight into the day to day dealings of a Wanderers player and has some handy hints for the relief of Fibromyalgia, whilst Turner, although you can’t hear it, does the exact opposite and polishes off an entire packet of chocolate snacks for the third week running.

This is Around the Bloc.

S02E17: Mid-Air Collision

Unlike the FFA, Around the Bloc does actually appreciate it’s fans, and this week we’ve rectified our premature evacuation of the podcast studio from last week and we’re back to our regular episode length.

The Wanderers went up the Freeway to Newcastle, and after 2 amazing strikes and 2 dubious goals, came away with a point from a 2-all draw. Feeling more blue than a speech from Joel Griffiths, the RBB travelled to the W-League and National Youth League double header in modest numbers and were unfortunate not to see a point from those games.

The foreigners cop it in ATB Feedback this week, the ATB boys are left Mullen over the new signings, such as Antony Golec who is my new Wanderers brother, and Golgol who is Mehbratu.

This is Around the Bloc.

S02E16: Ingloryous Wanderers

Around the Bloc has a new sponsor this week in Cosy Kitchen Catering, but the feast they provided for us wasn’t the only one on offer as the Wanderers devoured Perth Glory in a 3-1 win at Parramatta Stadium. It was the Wanderers thyme to shine as they rocket-ed back into 2nd place, slowly eating away at the top spot.

ATBFeedback had Speccy all heated up this week, as he struggled to digest some of the answers provided, the Youth league boys had a win but the Roar proved Toum much for the Wanderers ladies up in Queensland.

You can have your cake and eat it too, on this weeks episode of Around the Bloc.

S02E15: Prodigal Podcast

The Wanderers went to the City of Churches, praying for a win. Popa put a team on the pitch that had some fans asking ‘why have you forsaken me?’. And would you Adam-and-Eve it? We came away with another loss. It was the RBB’s tour of duty though, and the quality of the active support is a testament to the travelling fans.

In other news, Shinji Ono is leaving the club, unlikely to return in 3 days, the W-League and Youth League teams struggle through their matches, although neither are crucified as much as Speccy is when we confront him about his ‘Prodigal Son’ call from last week.

In the name of the Iván, the Turner, the Brendan and Steve, this is Around the Bloc.
