    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.

This is where the marquee money should be going. Bring back roos in their late prime.

Rather than some semi washed, pay day seeking mid 30yo
Great theory but there is probably only Rogic and Ryan that would fit the bill these days, this is not the golden generation. Your "roos in their late prime" these days is the likes of Jackson Irvine, Aziz Behich and Mitch Duke, not Viduka, Kewell and Cahill. You would struggle to get anybody outside of their immediate family truly excited by bringing most of the current mob home

I don’t blame him either, was just unfortunate he was the one to miss the intercept. Massive fan of the kid, ready made replacement for when Kye eventually gets a move overseas.

also, I can see why many are saying Ruon should’ve been thrown in… but he only played 30mins in about 6 weeks. Cam had been playing NPL regularly and had a couple decent games in the lead in. Monty trusted the young lad and he was fitter and sharper. I thought he did just fine in the circumstances.
Yeah but he didnt. He cost us the game. Rowles did as well.

But we dont spend money on a specialist defensive coach so we don't really know how to defend properly.

Agree. Also, Ruon has suffered a tragedy and was having a very tough time before that… throwing him into a prelim final with so little game time - where he easily could be the one who now makes a crucial error that on top of all he’s suffered, now cost his team their finals hopes… it’s not a risk I would have been comfortable with as a coach.
