    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!

    If you want to get rid of this message, simply click on Join Now or head over to https://www.ccmfans.net/community/register/ to join 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.

2021/22 season

It's still weird they give clubs like Adelaide a pass when I think they look worse than us or the Nix who have been seriously depleted and have to play the early part of the comp away from home.
Not really. We're up for sale, probably the smallest, youngest squad, smallest market. They don't need to pander to us. TBH we've gotten off on it in the past and we should do so again. We could have won the league last year and it wouldn't be any different.

Not much of that matters. Objectively the Nix and Adelaide have been hit harder than we have and haven’t replaced as strongly as I believe we have. We’re an easy pick for the spoon because we’ve been in the conversation if not the winner most recent years but that’s hardly decent analysis.

Yeah, we're not talking about decent analysis. I was testifying to the reason why it isn't weird that these teams get a pass while we don't

This season really could go in any direction for me, but I think our days of visiting the 'Have we hit rock bottom' thread are over for now.

I would like to highlight that whilst Monty is a coach new to this level he has his Pro licence which is a LOT of work, and requires huge amounts of developing your personal coaching philosophy and strategy and tactics work. Added to that I am told Sergio is a very smart tactician.

Monty was also a high level pro player and a DM himself - so understands a thing or two about defence. He knows how to set a team up defensively, and has evidently recruited and trained to transition into attack from a solid base which is massive in a DMs mind.

We have kept nearly all of the spine structure from last year which worked so well and have put speedy, dynamic creative players in around them which look to be an upgrade to my mind overall.

Finally, whilst Monty is new to this level, his success with the Academy wasn't an accident. It was planned and deliberate and supported by hard work. It was not just good, it was dominant.

There are reasons to hope

I'm an idiot savant without the pesky savant bit
Robbie slater said on The Back Page that one of the top coaches in the comp is a vicious anti -vaxxer, and his not heard what players won’t get jabbed…sure gonna be intriguing shortly, when players /coaches can’t travel
