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!

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.
Yeah, I think I have a new favourite player :} Apparently he had the fastest red card in history [among many cards] and said that the FA should be grateful to him for taking the hooliganism from the terraces, and onto the pitch. Can we hire him for one on one coaching to show Moresch what a REAL foul looks and feels like? Maybe keep him away from Miller as he could pick up some bad habits :]The great Vinnie Jones-now there was a GREAT DM-scared the crap out of opposing mids ad forwards
and Tommy Smith at Liverpool, Dave Mackay at Spurs and Peter Storey at Arsenal (who had quite a colourful life of the field as well). It seems all top sides had a brutal enforcer - and all of them would have prospered today as well because they were quality footballers as well as being ruthless hatchet men - they would just have toned down the latterIn the 1960s and early 70s Chelsea had Ron "Chopper "Harris,Leeds had Norman "Bites your Legs" Hunter and Billy Bremner and MU had the toothless ,ruthless Nobby Stiles.They were absolute assassins and would not be allowed to play today
Or this clip from the Ricky Gervais comedy series Extras, where "hardman" actor/documentary maker Ross Kemp - sending himself up - had heard Vinnie was filming nearby and was shooting his mouth of about what we would do to him.Watch Lock Stock and Snatch. Brilliant. Just plays himself
