S03E27: Out Of Our Misery

That’s it for another season – there were tough times, injuries, bust-ups, people turning on each other, swearing at each other, people leaving due to poor conditions… and that’s just the podcast.

The team finished on a bitter-sweet note however, winning against Guangzhou but losing out to yet another injury time winner which just happened to be at another game in another country. Now, more than ever, we look forward to the off season, until a month down the track when we all miss the A-League and want it to come back.

But that’s football, and this is Around the Bloc.

Note: This episode contains some coarse language after the outro music

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.

SNUBBED: Around The Bloc misses out on FFDU Award nomination despite Alan Mtashar being the greatest guest host of all time.

Around The Bloc’s monopoly of the Podcast D’Or is over, as fans awoke on a grey and gloomy Friday morning, shocked to hear that their favourite podcast had not made the shortlist. Looking to add a third star to their logo (or change it to a single star with the number 3 in it), most […]

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.

All on this weeks episode of Around the Bloc

S03E23: Bloc, Rocket, Beats

It was another mixed week for Wanderers fans, firstly obtaining all 3 points against Brisbane in one of their highest wins ever, and then heading to the West Coast for an unfortunate loss. The travelling RBB did their best to show the Perth fans how it’s done, and despite the loss on the field, it was a clear cut contest who won off it.

We do have the ACL to look forward to in the next week, as well as a match against Melbourne City who we’ve beaten recently – if history repeats, this could be our most successful fortnight of the season!

This is Around the Bloc.

S03E22: You’re Coming Down With Us

Another week, another winless run of games, another lot of injuries, and another journo getting his facts wrong. Not much has changed in Wanderland since our last show, although when we say we want to see the youth, Popa listens. This coming week though, we stray further from home than Ante Covic with trips to Brisbane and Perth, and with not much to play for, we can only hope to ruin their seasons instead.

In other news, Turner talks transfers, we all talk DIY, and ATB starts posting pictures of food, trees and our freshly painted toenails on our brand new instagram account.

S03E21: Unhappy Meal

Well, you win some, you lose… most – We beat one Melbourne team and then, despite actually playing reasonably well, lost against the other one. We saw glimpses of the kind of play that can win games in style, but it could be too little too late for this season.

In positive news, the youth and fringe players got a run and they all did us proud. Our ATBFeedback responses echoed our calls for these guys to be used more and more, and we may just see that as we take on FC Seoul in South Korea this week, where we may have more of a chance at getting 3 points than you might think.

S03E20: For Nato

Each week, we talk about our chances against our opposition, and each week this year, bar one or two, we’ve been let down. ATBFeedback this week asks the question – should we use the rest of this season to roll the dice with our youth players, rather than tire our first team out even more? We’ve got 2 games in 3 days so is now as good a time as any to take the pressure off our increasingly fatigued seniors?

We also talk about our recent losses against Brisbane and Guangzhou, but unlike our controversy-laden Champions League game, we go far more than 17 minutes overtime.

This is Around the Bloc.

S03E19: Admit None

It was a bittersweet week for us Wanderers fans. First we scored three and won, then we scored another three and lost. Then we had chorizo, then we had the ACL ticketing fiasco – it’s been a hell of a roller coaster. On another note, with Bulut firing, the immediate future is looking slightly more positive, but what about the long term?

We discuss this at length and so much more on this episode of Around the Bloc
