    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.

Chinese Super League... not so super

Chinese football was thrown into disarray on Sunday as the owners of reigning Chinese Super League champions Jiangsu FC announced the club would cease operations with immediate effect. A post on Jiangsu‘s official WeChat account expressed hope of new backers or that a “company of insight” would be willing to consult on the team’s future.

Not surprised there was so much wasteful investment in players to a league that couldn’t support it long term. Plenty got a nice retirement fund out if it.

The people who own the Chinese club who are folding also own Inter Milan.
I think that's really why there were articles about China.
I'm pretty sure the mega deals in China have been drying up for a while.
They have been but winding down is a fair leap to leading clubs collapsing. Helps Australian hopes for ACL though, a weaker chinese league makes the group of death we often cop just a little bit softer.
