    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.

First 5 minutes and VAR call on offside for what looked a legitimate goal. Interestingly there was no footage of the offence. No offside lines or anything. Just a replay from a pitchside camera.

Edit. Now they've shown it a good 10 mins later. Actually a great way to show the offside too. Would never have picked that offside in a million years.

Yep until they showed the delayed picture it looked a very dodgy VAR call for offside.No problems with the penalty call though.

Ecuador all over Qatar at this stage and now up 2 nil-good start by Valencia with a penalty and a top header and also the disallowed goal.

That header was sublime. Qatar getting a lesson. I think they've only had the ball in the final third once.

Watched the mini as not keen to sit through the full match replay for this one. Gee that is a tough offside call on Ecuador and I wouldn't be happy to be on the receiving end of it. Must admit I was happy to see the reigning Asian Champions with a starting 11 consisting of 5 nationalised players be the first home team to lose the opening game of the World Cup. Just shows oil money can buy a lot but not everything.

Ecuador looked sharp and well up for it, not easy playing the host nation first up and that early disallowed goal could have knocked them around mentally. Hopefully tonight's matches will be a little more exciting.

I'm still pissed off with that VAR call. How on Earth was he interfering with play? And there were a couple more game transactions before the final header.

Did anyone see the new Rolex on the ref's wrist as he left in his Maserati?
