    Around the Bloc Podcast Season 7

    I've been pretty anxious about doing this episode even for the lols. For the record, I did think it would be funny to do. I can certainly understand everybody turning it off a fraction in to the episode. This week, we had the following issues: 1. No Game 2. No Controversy 3. No guest lined up 4. No ATB Feedback (as we had done one a couples of weeks before) The only content we could've delivered was an evaluation of the season thus far. Which would've been pointless with only 5 rounds left to go. It's also something we would do post season. Next time there's a split round and we don't have a game - we will be prepared and organise some quality content. For those that listened all the way through, there was some quality discussion surrounding the ACL and the A-League's approach to it. I hope that was enjoyable and something that people are interested in once we return to the ACL. Apologies if this week's joke of an episode went too far.

    Wasn't a whole lot to talk about re: the Guangzhou R&F game. The youth plus Fitzgerald looked quite threatening at times against Guangzhou in the first half and also defended quite well under pressure. Come second half, it was a totally different story - Guangzhou figured themselves out a little bit and went for it and pull us to pieces. 3 goals conceded in the second half.

    Squad Development 2018/19 Part 2

    They were players signed under instruction from Gombau. Those contracts were pre-signed (which is common) during that season for this season ahead.

    JT goes for the players that he is instructed to under the Manager. He doesn't recruit players without that guidance.

    From what I hear, that is correct. Lederer is in completely in and wants to see this club do well. The other board members are in to the extent of their investment. I, personally, can not stress how happy I am with the club off the field. Academy, owner, new stadium, corporate relationships, staff, etc. - I am quite please with.

    It was so bloody annoying too - all I could hear was some f***wit on a microphone that seemed to have more audible strength than Hill & Slater commentating.

    711 - HONDA 4.0 TYPE-RANT The ATB crew is back to discuss a disappointing result against a Honda led Melbourne Victory. We address many of the criticisms being thrown at the club and try to clear some of it up. A detailed discussion is held about the state of the club and what the future hopefully brings. Oh, and Turner rants a bit, assisted by Josh. This is Around the Bloc. https://www.aroundthebloc.com.au/711-honda-4-0-type-rant/

    100% - it's a situation largely a victim of circumstances.

    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! This is Around the Bloc. https://www.aroundthebloc.com.au/710-defend/
