    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.

2022/23 Season

To provide added perspective:
Wanderers with a coach who's attitude hasn't lead to success beyond two seasons - we've seen him in the league for a long time too, I don't think he'll improve
MC with a coach who may be one position above where he should be. Only previous experience didn't go well and I hear he bottled a GF. He'll have the cattle, I'm not sure he's a head coach. Admitting to your CEO on camera after losing a grand final 5-1(?) "I don't know what happened" doesn't give out a good vibe
Bling - same old coach who now couldn't do the job with experienced players and now has to turn to youth
Adelaide - Their coach was delusional in the last few weeks of the season, showed no ability to change things up and has no Goodwin, no recruits of note and an aging hacker in Isiais, who was at fault with more than 75% of the goals they leaked against us, as a key player.
Vuck - see Wanderers above, but their coach isn't a complete tool

I think all others are wild cards and have potential. Then us ..

Established, dynamic, strategic leadership with clear goals and plans to achieve them. A very good squad. Matt Simon. And the exciting opportunity to bring in a coach that suits our ethos and can build on the solid foundations laid by Monty/Staj/Ken etc.

And what's with the Dick hate here? He's made a couple of mistakes and he'll make more. But he's hands on, supportive of the staff, brought in a lot of support staff in areas we didn't have covered before, putting his hard earned into the club. I don't always like the letters he sends to us, hard to guess his strategy there, I suspect he had more to do with the GF in Sydney debacle, and don't like what I heard about letting go a good youth coach.

BUT I LOVE DICK! and forgive those errors in judgement.

If they start well this season - and their showings so far suggest they will - they could be contenders this season. Maybe it'll fall apart but I think it's more likely they build on last season.
