    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.

So there are 12 teams in each pool east and west but only 8 match days. So you don't play everyone but qualify for knock out stages if you finish top 8 of 12.
Seems a bit strange and uneven. Not even home and away vs same teams etc

What do you mean Kaltak?
Has he signed somewhere else
No rumours for Kaltak leaving as such.
But we are a selling club and Aukland will have new club money. And our success will also attract India and others for a spine player suck as Kaltak.

There is a rumour. The ISL team with Petratos and CumDingo

That's what happens when you take Asian comps seriously instead of stuffing around and getting knocked out in the group stage (they had better results pre-COVID because at least Chinese clubs would make it through at least one knockout round).
The Chinese clubs had mega money pre covid. A lot of that has dried up or at least been cut heavily since. But these things take time to be reflected in the coefficient

Yep, also we went to 0.00 in 2021 (and low in 2020) because of COVID but China basically did the same in 2021 and 2022. China's going to plummet as the 2019 and earlier coefficient points age out.

In the latest rankings China is still getting an extra Elite entry compared to where it's ranked (2+1, versus Iran and Thailand either side only getting 1+1) but I'm not sure whether that's due to earlier rankings or just a +1 China thing.
