Early season line-up changes force Dan out this week but Chrisso is back for his 2018/19 Debut! In part two of our season preview. We take a look at Adelaide, Victory, City, Newcastle & Sydney. We bait Chrisso with Usain Bolt chat and he lashes out at young people's music.
We're back for 2018/19! and we're easing our way into the new season Diego Castro style. Part 1 of our pre-season preview we take a look at the Ins and Outs for Central Coast, Wellington, Western Sydney, Perth & Brisbane.
The 2017/18 season is done and dusted with Melbourne Victory coming from fourth to win in controversial circumstances and now it's time for the second annual Golden Gallop Awards recognising outstanding achievements in the field of comedy, shabbiness and general A-League-ness.
Thanks for listening over the last seven months, the response this year has been humbling. We’ll see you next season.
This week the lads, sans Chrisso, go through all the excitement of four teams with varying levels of irrelevance on this season. We chat about Robbie Slater’s social media presence and two hour old milk on a hot Perth evening.
This week the lads talk about flares without Murdoch press hysteria, try on Neil Kilkenny’s cooked accent, fawn over the Sydney Killbots and celebrate the Jets 10 year premiership anniversary (since the FFA didn’t).
Round 10! Will our Melbourne City correspondent joins us on the couch filling in for the Honeymooning Dan to talk Derby pantsings, Victory's woes and mutual terminations . All the usual stuff including the preview of "Spanish Round"
This week the lads wax lyrical about Newy and CCM, talk viciously about Perth, Victory and Brisbane. They wonder if Ross McCormack actually got bigger in the past week and then backed over Perth again.
The first Sydney Derby of the season is in the books and the points have been shared. We also talk about Vinnie Lia's not one, but TWO thunder bastards. The naivety of the CCM defence, if Newcastle can keep their momentum going after the horrific injury to Ronald Vargas and of course everyone's favourite topic VAR.
With the 2016/17 A-League season finally over and the Sydney KillBots winning the toilet seat, we’re thanking you by hosting the first annual Golden Gallops awards, recognising outstanding achievements in the field of comedy, shabbiness and general A-League-ness. Nominees include Michael Theo, Tim Cahill and Roy Billings. Thanks for listening over the last seven months, and we’ll see you next season.
We have an intruder in the box this week, with City correspondent Will Castley joining Rudi and Clarky in lieu of Dan and Chrisso. The lads go through City's care factor, the Sydney Killbot Factory, RoboRef and more.
On this week's episode, the boys dissect the Melbourne Derby, write off Perth, uncover a piece of classic A-League commentary and Clarky tees right off on a City marquee - you'll have to listen to find out which one!
It's week 7 of the A-League, Clarky's back and the boys talk left-field defensive signings, long winded goal celebrations, pay respect to Paul Izzo & with an overwhelming sense of deja vu, administer the last rites to Adelaide's season.
On this week’s Clarky-less episode the remaining lads talk Sydney’s flawless start to the season, their concerns for Adelaide, the newly christened Nullarbor Knockout and the new obergruppenführer in town, Maxi Beister.
This week the boys discuss each other's A-League names, Kenny Lowe's baseball cap, Alex Brosque's weird head, Kerem Bulut's disciplinary issues and the odd spot of football including the seven goal thriller at Etihad and City's home win against a luckless Adelaide outfit.
It's a Rudiless ship this week as Clarky, Chrisso and Dan talk Kenny Lowe taking one for the team, Adelaide being behind the eight ball again and the Summer of Nigel (Boogaard). The boys also have ample opportunity to get stuck into some classic A-League goalkeeping after an action packed weekend.
With Rudi and Dan having temporarily abandoned their posts it's up to Clarky and Chris to fill you in on the opening round of A-League action. Comfortingly, shit jokes and references to Jack Clisby still feature prominently.
The other football codes are finished and this weekend the 2016/17 edition of the A-League finally kicks off! The guys look at the ins & outs for Melbourne City, Sydney FC, Central Coast Mariners, Brisbane Roar & Perth Glory and do their best to preview week one's set of fixtures.
Despite our best judgement and the legal advice of a myriad of lawyers, we're back for a second bite of the cherry in the 2016/17 season of the A-League. On this episode the lads preview Adelaide, Newcastle, Western Sydney Wanderers, Melbourne Victory and Wellington Phoenix.
After 30 episodes, 19 written complaints, 25 El Tuna goals, 144 matches and one ASIO raid, here is the final episode of Destruction In The Box for 2016. We talk amazing comebacks, hostile crowds, discuss the season that was and preview the grand final.
This week the Destruction in the Box lads talk brilliant bicycle kicks, ridiculous red cards, stupendous stoppage-time winners and all the finals action you didn’t know you wanted. There's also a comprehensive review of each of the bottom four teams' seasons.
THIS WEEK - The Premiers Plate! Finals! Heartbreak! Chokes! Brawls! Laurie Thomas! Ross Aloisi! Niche gags that about 7 people will get! Plus - Glenn Moss Wins, Paul Izzo Loses, Dan Says Things About Fixturing & Stefan Mauk Bashes An Assistant Manager.
On this week's (very loose) Destruction in the Box podcast, the guys anoint Brisbane Roar the 2015/16 Premiers, discuss whether or not Perth can actually do it and quote lengthy excerpts from award winning Kiwi author Ben Sigmund's new book.
On this week's pod the partied-out DITB boys (minus Dan) discuss Melbourne City's new-found favouritism, Arnie's status as the comedy icon of the A-League and Ernie Merrick's questionable press conference comments.
On this week's pod we take a look at the two point gap separating the top four teams, leaving us to make confused, non-committal noises whilst shrugging; make some bad Simpson's jokes, query Brisbane's away form, Clarky takes issue with City's crowds (again) and we discuss the relative merits of some of the A-League's glovemen.
In this week's express-paced pod, we look at a couple of brutal beatings that were dished out, make hardly any fun of Sydney FC's woes, salute City's solidity on the road while Dan shows off his true colours.
In a sweaty Destruction in the Box the boys discuss Brisbane's defending, Brisbane's attacking, Bruno Fornaroli's finishing clinic, Adelaide's ascent to the peak, the doom and gloom at Gosford and the Matilda's brilliant Olympics qualifying campaign.
With Rudi a late omission, Chrisso hosts Greensborough's favourite A-League podcast as the panel chat about the Carney curse, hot Bruce injections, the Jets mini-resurgence and question the Heart of Melbourne City.
This week the lads try and make sense of the utterly bonkers Perth v Brisbane game, Chris brings back some first hand intel from the lockout city derby and Rudi gives some love to the world class level of celebrations from round 20.
It's a full house again on the Destruction in the Box podcast, with crowd behaviour, Sydney FC, refereeing and goalkeeping all up for a kicking, while everyone was so blown away by Blake Powell that it's lucky the pod wasn't 55 minutes of stunned silence.
On this week's pod, the Jets bomb Melbourne City while Clarky nods approvingly; we look at all the talking points on the pitch and from the stands when the league's two biggest clubs meet while we're sadly light on for Lucho references as the DITB crew examine all the A-League's games and rodent siblings from Round 18.
The DITB boys sink their teeth into a few meaty issues this week, with David Carney, the FFA and Wellington Phoenix in the firing line, while the lads (mostly Chrisso) remain #LocoForLucho and discuss the liberal application of egg-based condiments in Perth.
With a fairly turgid offering from the A-League in Round 16, the boys have to resort to making gags about Daniel Beltrame and Richard Kitzbichler. Some time is set aside, however, to discuss Adelaide's form, City's imperious front three, Wellington's slide and who Melbourne Victory will take to the ACL.
On the round 15 pod the lads discuss the Sydney sucker punch, the Victory's warning shot to the league, City's Caceres shenanigans (surprisingly, Clarky's not a fan) and the Adelaide fans' siren thing that they're allowed to have for some reason.
On the round 14 Destruction in the Box podcast the boys (minus Dan) discuss the City v Wanderers epic, the Victory’s battling point away to CCM, Marcelo Carrusca’s class, and whether or not the A-League will ever manage to kick a game off on time.
The football festivities continue on this week's episode, featuring some constructive criticism on head-butting techniques when we relive the big moments in New Year's Eve 'Miracle on Masterfoods'.
Admissions of error, retro Adelaide United jerseys, Jordan Elsey and the Slippery Fish all get a mention as Chris, Dan and Clarky air their expert opinions on all the happenings in this round of A-League action
On the new DITB Pod, Clarky is finally convinced on City's credentials (sort of), Dan's still beating Adelaide's drum, and everyone owes Perth an apology for doubting them.
The guys also bemoan Jacques Faty's decision making in his own penalty area, wonder why Filip Holosko didn't take Sydney's penalty, pontificate on the safety of Tony Walmsley's job and run through their Christmas wish list for the A-League.
On the round 10 episode of Destruction In The Box, Rudi, Clarky, Dan and Chris discuss the Wanderers statement making win over Melbourne Victory, Adelaide's late show against Sydney and wax lyrical about City's front three - again.
Undeterred by the six pack he cost himself last week, Chrisso drops a huge prediction and opens up about his addiction to niche podcasting.
The lads return this week for a guaranteed 100% defamation free* episode of Destruction in the Box! Clarky remains unsold on City despite them scoring goals for fun, while Chris and Rudi castigate the FFA and New Zealand Football for the all round shambles that was the game Nix v Victory game in Auckland. Dan meanwhile has become a full Andreu convert, and all the guys like what the Wanderers are doing.
It's a full house for the first time on the Destruction in the Box Podcast this week, and Rudi, Clarky, Dan and Chris waste no time sinking their teeth into the issues that led to the fan walkouts, with the FFA and some journalists coming in for a huge whack.
The lads also talk a bit of football, with a now customary Aaron Mooy lovefest, the rise of the Wanderers, and a tipped Adelaide United resurgence all up for discussion.
Chris and Clarky are reunited with Dan in this week's pod - Rudi is sitting out for some well earned birthday leave. The lads dissect the epic Big Blue, pick over Adelaide United's winless carcass and check each other for moles while casting their expert eyes over the week that was and the games ahead in Australia's top flight.
On the round 5 edition of Destruction in the Box, Rudi, Clarky and Chris sing City’s praises and suggest that the bell may shortly toll for Guillermo Amor at Adelaide. The bizarre refereeing decisions in the Newcastle v WSW game come in for some criticism, as do the FFA for their Cup final ticketing strategy.
The lads then reminisce about where they did on November 16, 2005 – everyone remembers exactly where they were when Aloisi put the penalty in – before some discussion about the upcoming Socceroos games takes place.
