    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

What a rollercoaster following this team is.

On the short term scale of a week...
-> Finish the season 3rd and looking like contenders in the finals race

-> Bowing out first round (but proud nonetheless, can still salute the team)

-> Coach who is a big chance at coach of the season and credited with this amazing turnaround: quits, taking his assistant with him

-> Players start to confirm they're leaving, with only a few even signed on for next season. Looks like a mass unraveling is set to beginning

-> Ken confirms the culture is solid and the players are majority keen to stay and improve further

-> key player signings start being announced keeping the spine and core of the team intact (so far)

-> somehow we're spoiled for choice with coach options matched to our unique requirements. Better, these are the very coaches that laid the foundations for the successful A-League youth prospects in the first place and the systems that will keep producing them

Then, on the long term scale of years...
this rollercoaster of a club can go from the highest of highs (premiers, developing the next Socceroos, multiple grand finals) to the lowest of lows (4 spoons in 5 years, 8-2 scorelines) - moving on...

Throw in some left of field stuff like taking on Usain Bolt, putting on the regions carols and fireworks for a council that steals their plans for the stadium and presents them as their own, having a cannon and using it, plus about a thousand things more.

You have to admit it - CCM is never a boring side to follow

That's a good read and the second time he has mentioned Ruon as part of the team (this one he mentioned him as part of the core group of senior players) so hopefully now that's a pretty clear indication of Ruon hanging around. Maybe waiting to announce until after this issue which lead to him dropping out of the Olympic team has been resolved?
