    ccmfans.net is the Central Coast Mariners fan community, and was formed in 2004, so basically the beginning of time for the Mariners. Things have changed a lot over the years, but one thing has remained constant and that is our love of the Mariners. People come and go, some like to post a lot and others just like to read. It's up to you how you participate in the community!

It only takes a few minutes, and joining will let you post your thoughts and opinions on all things Mariners, Football, and whatever else pops into your mind. If posting is not your thing, you can interact in other ways, including voting on polls, and unlock options only available to community members.

    ccmfans.net is not only for Mariners fans either. Most of us are bonded by our support for the Mariners, but if you are a fan of another club (except the Scum, come on, we need some standards), feel free to join and get into some banter.

I rest my case on Juric.
Actually thought he linked up. Held up the ball and helped include Rogic into one of his better games.

Almost got the tap in but for good defensive slide cover.

Was like watching the Mariners last year. Nice passing (backwards) an occasional thrust forward but no real chances.

Also was very similar to out qualifying where we dominated teams then gave up goals on their only chance. Just can’t get away with that at a WC. Peru were better against the the other teams but skinned us. Gotta love that about football.

There is no one apart feom azarni coming through in Attackers.

Good luck Arnie. A solid team lacking quality and everyone hates you already.

The Paul Okon curse strikes again.
Spain played with 2 defensive middies and enjoyed 80% possession but had zero penetration so only had 7 shots on target in 120 minutes. (Russia had 1)
That is pathetic so they deserved to go home although they cost me $90.

Agree, but Okon would have still talked up the performance. Wonder if he will ever change his stripes, if not give up coaching. That’s also why he will not make a career out of commentating, just as boring as his game plan (plan A).

Weird. Thought he took up poor positions constantly. Never changes direction so his runs are useless. Can't get off a shot. Can't beat a man. Poor at closing down. Average hold up play is nowhere near enough compensation.

Our lack of a quality striker is easily the number one reason we cannot capitalise and our greatest short coming imo.
