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.
I reckon this is a fair call. Maybe we’ve become harsher over past seasons of crap. Or maybe it’s eaten away all our patience watching us forced to rely on youth who weren’t ready so now we have zero patience left... But we do have a habit of jumping on young players on here when form dips or they make mistakes - where everyone knows (or should know) youth are nearly always going to be hot and cold and the only real cure for this is time and experience.
I`d be starting Simmo for sure,knowing he can do a really good shift for us.I’d like to see Urena start and play at least 45. He seems to be the one slightly ahead in fitness over the Serb and Janota who I think will be on the bench for cameo’s.
I wouldn’t be starting Simmo.
And I think once Urena is up to proper speed we could see a very slight formation change with one striker dropping into #10 which honestly shouldn’t affect our excellent defensive block at all. But should help create chances for Urena whilst also accomodating Janota and the Serbian lad.
Pile on is a bit much but dropping him is fair when we saw what others were putting in. Hopefully its not a Fox situation and he cops it, knuckles down and comes back better for it. Mistakes are one thing for young players but not giving 100% is harder to forgive if its a recurring issue.
I dont think we have an option but I also expect this to be a more disciplined affair. Simon knows these guys, he's not going to be trying to send a message to Ninko or Wilkinson like he was with Ziggy. I'm still expecting us to press and fight but without the venom we saw on Tuesday.I wouldn’t be starting Simmo.
Re Miller ...sure he was grouse last year ...but somethings gone sideways over the off season...so why shouldn’t he get barked at ( in the nicest possible way) ?
