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.

Still in our hands. We win our games we finish in the top 2.

TBH I think losing Hrustic is a good thing. When he plays we play too much through the wings and the incessant mostly wasteful crosses and ignore the middle. Tommy as CAM give us another option. Early on in his NT days Hrustic played on either wing and I hope that is where he ends up. He may be an option for one wing with Boyle on the other. both like cutting in so they would probably end up playing like an inside-left or insider-right.

Mabil and Nabbout seem to be missing game time and are very rusty.

I caught the mini match at lunch. Not a lot to like there and we need more creativity down the middle. It's like watching us over recent years with the cross, hope, repeat approach. Without a significant shift its hard to see us beating Japan or SA.

Agree with all said. No meaningful penetration centrally. No idea why JM can’t get more minutes. Leckie is beyond wasteful imo,

Now, I’m no fkn expert at footy ,but , it seems to me the Socceroos have been sussed out by the rest of Asia now ….can you imagine a draw against the Saudis when Ange was at his peak as boss…I can’t either …but then it’s been suggested by a Bay 16’rs or two that ,and I quote, #ArnieIsAf**kinFraud…no I’m SERIOUS

I've been amazed by some selections, Nabbout hardly played last ALM season due to injury and looked so rusty the other night however that is to be expected and no fault of Nabbout. Arnie has his clear favourites and it may cost him dearly in the end. I agree with everyone else, the constant crossing into the box is soooo one dimensional and everyone expects it and focuses on defending it. He seems clueless with tactics and the squad selections.
