    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.

If you could change that and 2 other 'moments' - the Cummings penalty miss against WU in 'wtf are we' and the Dan Hall underhit pass back to Birraz we end up on 47 and win the league. As it is we end up 5th on 42 and City win on 49.

Small moments - big ramifications!!!
Astute observation

I'm sure there are plenty the other way too, particularly some of birraz saves have been outstanding this season. Things that go wrong that we could have controlled I'm fine with, stuff liked those missed opportunities. I'm not fine with clear cheating and bias from a corrupt ref who keeps his job with no ramifications and continues to do whatever he feels like.

Birraz is employed to make great saves. TBH the standard of keeping in the league is abysmal at the moment which only makes him look better.

The two moments I picked were because the players themselves took it hard. Cummings was bereft that we dropped the two points against WUN and the pass back from Dan was so different from what he has done the rest of the season.

Football,indeed all sports,are full of these moments.Life also has these " moments"-I had an acquaintance who was in the USA in 2001 and a flight he was going on was overbooked.The airline wanted him to wait till the next day to get another flight but he insisted on being on the original flight.

The plane they asked to go on was one of the 9/11 ones.

Faz and Kye looked devo at the own goals as well. I've made one of those hospital passes to a keeper before, the look they give you as they're about to be bent over is not one you forget!

I was on the Herald of Free Enterprise on the same day at the same time 1 year earlier and I thought that was spooky, narrowly missing that flight you'd feel blessed the rest of your life.

And I like how professional they are and bounced back.
