Mariner stuff not worthy of a whole thread

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.
Flashbacks to Troppo.

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.
They could start by bulldozing the shit heap and building something nice :)

What did you want to see Fulham? You know they intend on building some new mega club with skyscraper and hotel?

Maybe they will employ someone with 1oz of Marketing ability.

The only thing I can think of he came in under Lawrie and doesn't like that he clached with MC and left.

Just looked at our next 5 games. Absolute chance to take 15 points. Wutd/roar/WSW/jest/reds
First off we need to rectify playing like Shite after a win, all the games this season after a win have been less than impressive.

We are breaking some old records this year like finally beating the Victory, maybe we can manage back to back wins this season.

Therefore I see this WU game as a real challenge, only benefit is their defensive stocks are very thin at the moment and maybe some unrest in their dressing room.

I think it's Bosnich's ego, it's like he wants to be the champion for the fans of "big" clubs maybe cause he wants to remind us he played for Man U. But he always bangs on about Wanderers and Victory along the lines of they should be the top club's every year just by default. Does no analysis about why they're in the doldrums, poor recruitment of players or staff, just"they're a big club, I'm sorry but their fans deserve better".

Then he adds "no disrespect to other clubs" as if that makes up for the disrespect he's just shown to the other clubs. Apparently we don't deserve respect despite our many years of fantastic achievement.

I was hoping Matty would tell him to f off "that was you playing for that penalty when you got your body between Donachie and the ball, c'mon Matty we know you" - her never had said that to Del Piero. And as Matty took the mic he continued on his "Mariners didn't deserve the 3 points, no way was that a penalty" - what a twat!

I reckon Bozza had the demeanour of a dog licking piss off a thistle post game because I called him out for eating all the pies at half time....:thumbup:

This is a must win game if we want to kick on and make top six

If you combined Boz and Kruse's tears from last night, it'd give a much needed top up of Warragamba Dam.

Alot of things to rectify but these games are an opportunity. Roar are on the up but still labouring. All the others are absolutely beatable. Sunday's game showed the old school Mariners luck and fight. Showed a few guys what it's like to fight hard for a win.

I see we still manage to get a mention in the David Squires cartoon, even though it's about the scum.
Not sure about everyone else, but I'm still annoyed this even happened.

I get that it was a 'marketing' tactic to add some drama for the derby, but some things just shouldn't be done at our home ground and this is one of them imo.
