The Stajcic Era, a Partnership of desperates or a Marriage Made in Heaven?

Given what Anton said at the forum when talking about Glassrock.
Something along the lines of needing a "big ugly" centre back I would have thought we'd be signing someone else.
Can't see anyone big or ugly enough at the club yet, unless Staj didn't agree, but he didn't say so at the time.
I'm sure a keeper will turn up soon too.

I agree, seems to have clicked and from what I've seen so far. Staj seems like a straight shooter with more rigour and professional experience than the coaches of the last few years, the proof will be in the pudding though but I like what I see so far. He hit the nail on the head in that interview, we've heard it all before and the numerous Fb posts saying people won't renew until they see proof of improvement is testament to that. (although I already renewed based on what I've seen to date).

No one seems to have mentioned it much, I thought the big young fella at CB from the youth team, Miller, was very impressive in the friendly against Manly, I'd like to see him given a chance....
Welcome to the forum Dobbie.
Good first post.
I think Staj has the wood on the last few turkeys,I`ve never heard of the players having soreness before.
I just hope it`s not because they fell so far behind on fitness in the off season

No, I'm sure Hoole reported having a sore head a few times.

I suspect it is whingeing from some of the snowflakes who were used to allegdly training 3 or 4 hours a week last season - we didnt collapse in the last 10 or 15 minutes for no reason - it was because they were completely unfit.
If Staj is flogging them - great.
If you cant be as good, be fitter

Wasn't this literally our approach in the first season? Knowing we wouldn't attract the big names of some of the glamour clubs, we went out to be the fittest club on the park?
Although it's probably much harder to be able to do that now - for all the talk about how much more money clubs like MV, SFC, MCY, WSW have to spend on players - I'd also hate to think how much more than us they're able to spend on support staff and technology to help with fitness

Central Coast Mariners play Maitland tomorrow night in the FFA Cup Round of 32. And if you don't think it's an important match, you are sorely mistaken.
It sounds like the biggest match in Central Coast Mariners' history.

The four-time Grand Finalists have been part of some of football's greatest moments on Australian soil, but few might be aware that tomorrow night's Cup tie against Maitland FC is one of their biggest.

I wouldn`t mind Alanna Kennedy at the back for us though...:popcorn:

Welcome aboard the forum too mate . I hope you enjoy it as much as we do :overheadl:
Yep, she'd be good, but the FFA may require Staj not to approach within 100m of her, bit tricky if they are both on the bench :)
Thanks SC, I AM having fun

Staj has actually known Alanna Kennedy since about 2002 and is also friends with hers parents.
He used to coach her brother Daniel,along with Matt Thompson`s brother Mitch.
I know your comment is tongue in cheek but the FFA can go FFF themselves on Staj`s sacking...:popcorn:

It says a lot about Staj`s integrity in that he hasn`t openly "aired his dirty laundry in public".
Personally I like the man and so far he`s done everything right.
I can`t wait `til the season begins...:popcorn:
i think the shambolic state of the matildas , at the world cup . shows what a cluster f'k
his removal was . the incompetence lays squarely with the FFA .
we have the best coach in the league i have no doubt
