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!

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.
There is no-one in the league who wins the ball back as much as Stens, full stop. For some reason a lot of punters seem to concentrate on the mistakes. They happen but less often than most others out here. He makes up for every loss of the ball with ten turnovers. Staj can see the stats and the player quite clearly, which is why Stensness starts every game.
Without new ownership, nothig will change. He isnt funding the current cap so will be delighted if it goes altogether as he can sign more park footballers.
The last 3 games have been dreadful
Take Birra out and we would have let in 100 this season
He is a good physical presence who breaks up play quite well for someone so young but you can’t keep winning the ball and then turning it back over with poor passing. They negate each other and you become un playable. He must cut out those errors or he won’t be good enough to play A LeagueThere is no-one in the league who wins the ball back as much as Stens, full stop.

we came last because our back 4 are still in nappsAlso no one in the HAL apart from Melling that gives the ball up as much. I can see a decent player inside but he is VERY flawed at this stage. It 2 years he will be ready for the HAL...right now he is winging it................and it is one of the reasons we came last.
Replace Stens with the Korean at DM and play Fox at CB instead of the Korean and we would not have come bottom.
Step overs and fancy tricks are all very well, but are useless if you cannot produce an end product (ie an accurate pass to someone in a better position) they are also useless if you cannot keep the ball. Most of our players need to work seriously on these basics.The DDS/Silvera effect. They cant play in the same side and should play wide (yay more curriculum step over experts)
I'm not buying that - none of the other divers in the league have ever had that problem, and he's never been booked for diving.I think Silvera has a reputation as a diver and would need to be hit with a baseball back to get anything
The better the player is the more they seem to get benefit of the doubt. When it’s Matty or SIlvera the mindset is they’re diving because they won’t score otherwise. When it’s Berisha, Fornaroli, ALF it’s taken more at face value.I'm not buying that - none of the other divers in the league have ever had that problem, and he's never been booked for diving.
Post game interview he said he will stay on in a dual role so I’d expect him to be re-signed in his super sub role and maybe start working under Monty or some other off field capacity with an eye on life after football.The more I think about this,the more I think we need to keep Matt Simon on the books for next year albeit on a reduced and affordable pay scale.
The question was phrased around whether he would be playing on or hanging up the boots. The way he spoke definitely indicated it would have an on field component.Dual role could also mean something like youth assistant or assistant coach / community engagement coordinator. No guarantee it's an on field position, although a part time player role is ok
