Ange's style requires time and regular training / games. Difficult to achieve when you only have pre-game camps
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 always thought that Arnold's transformation here was better. He took a team that was 8th ( after his 2010 World Cup duties) to top 2 for the next 3 years. Ange took a team from Frank Farina that was in the top 6 to narrowly avoiding the wooden spoon on the last day before his good run.
Both coaches have done well .Ange better at coaching club teams where he has time to mould them to his ideas of attacking football.Arnie the better NT coach as he has learnt how to enthuse and utilise the strengths of players who are not playing in the top tiers ,hence he plays a counter attacking style mainly though the Socceroos can play possession football depending upon the opponent.Ange left with plaudits but no wins in 2014. If he again had no wins with probably a worse squad in 2018 then his World Cup would have read 6 games 0 points. Ange left for Ange. His team believed in him but ultimately he didn't believe in them.
I think he is a great team coach in that he can bring in players that fit his mould. As a NT manager though he doesn't have that luxury - you can only deal with the players you have.
Ubud is really nice and has a Blue Mountains feel to it. Some tourist things to do like the Big Swing and the Monkey Forest, The Waterfall and a lovely Temple. Denpasar (busy capital) and Sanur (laid back beach suburb with 5km beach promenade you can walk or hire a scooter or pushey) are not too far either.I've never been to Bali however very likely to go to our game. Where are people staying? Ubud seems to have a lot of accommodation options and not too far from the Stadium. As with others how do we get tickets to the game?
Thanks for the info, that’s the impression I got for Ubud. Was thinking it might be too quiet but then not looking for the Kuta experience either.Ubud is really nice and has a Blue Mountains feel to it.

Going to be a big task with us yet to start our season and only 1 competitive game weeks ago. Im worried that a combination of fitness, upheaval and maybe hubris will result in a reality check but if it does hopefully we can reset afterwards.This is because the Turtles squad has yet to lose in 11 Malaysia League (M League) matches.
Is it just me or do you get the sense that behind the scenes is a bit chaotic right now.wasn’t he with the u23’s last week? Maybe got a niggle or maybe he’s just not in the few photos
Some info on who travelled would be nice though.
Tbf squad related comms have always been an issue.
