    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.

Mariner stuff not worthy of a whole thread

I think the best plan to beat the press is to stop trying to beat the press. Give them the credit they deserve and respect the quality of that component of the game, and frustrate the daylights out of them by playing long ball and nullifying the press until they wear themselves outrunning after nothing.

We are turning into a second half team - playing long ball, saving our energy while they waste theirs is actually a great plan. But it takes humility to understand their press is amazing and we don’t handle it well.

MJ will have a plan.

Finals are a different beast. Sydney had their first win of the season against Macarthur last weekend. No reason why we can't have our first win against them this season on Friday.

Loving all these articles praising the team.
Feels like when we found that key on the beach a month ago.
That's such a great article, sums up our history well, and a few tidbits of info in there too. Seems Rich is in for a good while yet

APL may be looking at Mariners hosting the GF if we are playing Wellington. I suppose they figure it wouldn't draw any more than the 20,000 it would get here if it was held at Alliance.
Barely got 25k vs Citeh last year. So there's no reason vs a 'small' team we shouldn't get it at home.
