  1. Yes... three blokes having a kebab killed the game for us...

  3. 100% Agreed I also recommend 'The Hollowmen' as fantastic from the Working Dog Production crew
  4. Prydzopolis, I think you and I have different ideologies, which is more than fine. I think if I replied, it would be a long essay that none of us have to time to prepare or read. If you like, I'm happy to make myself available for a coffee at a game to chat further - just dm me via WSF and I'll make myself available. Good chat mate
  5. Yeah I knew your overall point - hence my post starting with "I'm nitpicking here". I was going too far down another tangent - my bad! On this point you make - what more would you like the club to do? The information gets released & the club make themselves available to be discussed with. It's also discussed at the Marconi forum too (of which I'm constantly disappointed at the turnout each year for what is such an important event). If you suggest a more consistent member forum over a season I would agree but general turnout does not suggest so (unfortunately). Regarding informa
  6. I'm nitpicking here - we share what can share. If someone asks us not to disclose something and shows trust in us to comply - we respect it (regardless of where that avenue comes from). We seek clarification on how we can share the information from the person who shared it - if they don't feel comfortable - we don't share it. If it's easier - we just won't share information at all from now on. There hasn't been a secret method to how we get our information; we just strike up a conversation and keep a relationship - you're all free to do the same. I dare say there are members of this foru

  8. THIS WEEK ON ATB: PTI "Pardon the Interruption" show! We've stolen the timeless ESPN format for our show this week and we will be debating 6 topics at ten minutes a piece. Emphasis on the word "debate". We have got some ideas as to what topics to debate but would like to hear your input and have it incorporated on the show. Feel free to post here, on our twitter, facebook or even email us with your feedback at feedback@aroundthebloc.com.au Cheers Josh
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. They were players signed under instruction from Gombau. Those contracts were pre-signed (which is common) during that season for this season ahead.
  12. JT goes for the players that he is instructed to under the Manager. He doesn't recruit players without that guidance.
  13. 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.
