    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.

Mariner stuff not worthy of a whole thread

A better headline for the article would be "Former fan favourite makes pitch to be a future Sheffield United manager".

There is a link in the article to another article from last year. It does seem that Monty is using old relationships with local journalists to take both the club and everyone in Sheffield along on his coaching journey and make sure everyone his in no doubt about his achievements, philosophy, development mindset and ability to deliver on a shoestring.

Not a dig at him by the way, in fact the opposite, it is smart work from him making sure the seeds of his return are well and truly planted with both the owners and the fans.

I like the fact this article is pointing out the ordinary officials and a rugby league law. Cop that APL.

It’s no wonder we are doing well when you understand his philosophy.

Anyone know when the AFC Cup pools are drawn, I got the misso on board and now all I have to do is look at my options.

We have depth now.
You can't deny it though, as with many organisations not just football and I've seen it in companies I've worked at. Takes a long time to build a good strong culture and it can be ruined in under 6 months.

We have the processes in place however just look back at the Academy and their start to the season to see how fragile that process is.
