Hey guys, just following on the new CEO at the Leagues club was really good and open to working hard to make the experience better for Mariners fans and members with a view to rekindle the partnership between CCLC and CCM.

I went through some of the challenges from previous seasons and the experiences that have caused us as a club and also you as a fanbase to slowly walk away from the leagues club.

We will be working closely with them on building a strategy and hopefully there are some really positive outcomes that are driven from this before the end of the season.

Happy to bring any suggestions and specifics that you guys might have up with them over the next few weeks. One concept that I would be keen to hear would be to have a post match function at the leagues club after the Brisbane Roar game on the 25th Feb? It would probably be around 8pm but to meet all the players and hear from Staj straight after the match could be a potential function that we put on? Thoughts?

Marketing folk will tell you the hardest client to win is a former client that has left you.

CCLC lost the fans over a number of years, the business mistakes they made could be used as a case study in how not to do things and turn people away.

The reason I posted the above sentence is to drive home to the club, its been mostly there own actions and non actions that has caused the walk out. Meaning they need to work their socks off to win people back, and more so to stem the flow that is increasing.

How do they repair the damage, tis an interesting question...

For starters they could show they care .... how could they do that, three simple things.

1] At the entrances to the club have larger Mariner pictures of past players and signed shirts.
2] Match days dress bar staff in Mariner shirts.
3] Allocate part of the club as a Mariners area pre and post match's, have the allocated bar filled with Mariners pictures, signed shirts.

More direct things.

Allocate to all Mariner members, say 6 free drink vouchers, limited to wine and beer...

On a similar theme, if you are a Mariner member receive 5% off drink prices.

Shaun, its difficult to turn back a flowing tide and thats what the CCLC is faced with.... it needs to be said ,their own incompetence and arrogance being the chief course ...

I would add this equally applies to CCM as the inability to put a team not battling for the spoon over 5 years and maybe more ..... the unwillingness to invest in either a top striker and central defender pre-season and what anyone who analysis-ed our club including the forum said was essential.... it is starting to bite at a community level.... CCM also need to work hard to get fans back....

Just watching this U23 match vs Iraq on Kayo.
And genuinely blown away that buhagiar is on the same pitch as these players. The iraqi’s are very very good btw.
He’s literally been invisible. Chased down one ball and put a cross in. And he started over a player like Italiano?!? Is he dating arnie’s unknown 2nd daughter or something?

Out of genuine curiosity, what is it that the CCLC does for the mariners or our supporters that they expect attendance or patronage?

It has always absolutely baffled me how any sort of on-going events/relationship hasn't been formed. Such a great opportunity that hasn't been capitalised on. One can only assume that it would've been hugely beneficial to both parties over the years.

Someone who was there back in the first few seasons would know more than me, but l believe the relationship started off pretty well Seasons 1/2/3 but it dropped off and then just became non-existent. I feel as if they believe they should get the patronage on game days since they're literally across the road and it's convenient for most which is true. However, with Bay Rd and Baker St. providing an alternative, they've lost business and now realise they've got competition. Bay Rd for me has been a welcome addition and a fantastic alternative with its location and its good beers and vibes and CCLC now have to actually try and get those people back by doing something.

This. They get business by default and have been taking it for granted. Well that's if they even care, with the way they've systematically managed to kill it off as somewhere young people might go over the last 15-20 years they can't be surprised when those same customers now in their 30s and 40s have little interest in attending and young people in their late teens early 20s never became customers at all.
