    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.

Bling had less than 40% possession. Time for a real coach some time soon. I can see them missing out on the Top 6.

Possession means jack shit, especially against the turgid, slow build up of Newcastle. Sydney are average no doubt, but Newcastle only got some peanuts because of the individual brilliance of Yuel. It had nothing to do with possession.

Not a fact and I disagree with that.

Think of all the teams that trounced us when we had Okon yet we “dominated possession”.

Sydney’s biggest problem is that they didn’t know how to press properly and as they grew more tired Newcastle had more outs and their dangerous players received the ball more.

This probably because of poor coaching, poor fitness and an ageing team than dominating possession.

Great result. Both teams still below us on the table.

After tonight both Rhyan Grant and Mathew Leckie (in the other game) should be no where near our national team.
Not sure who you would put in, in Grants place but Leckie could easily be replaced. The young Volpato from Roma would be worth a spot.

Bullshit. This is a perfect working of VAR and still people f**king whinge. 🙄
Most of the issues seem to be not giving us the VAR images and lines. There's zero transparency on whether hawkeye can rule on that, I assume it can if it can rule on an offside 1m further forward but without the confirmation we're left bickering among ourselves with no faith in the system. VAR and replays are an area where Paramount has some catching up to do.
