finally retired

Hey guys

The Derby is our home game and we will get preference here over any other fans regards less of location. The original hub plan when everything was behind closed doors had us playing in Newcastle as Central coast Stadium was booked out for NRL games and lots of them.
But as if the weekend everything has changed again and is likley to continue to change up until the game is played.
I am predicting that a draw will come out soon with no confirmation of home grounds.
Our first priority is of course Central Coast Stadium - I have no idea if NRL will affect us playing this game here or not - but I am on the case to find out.
If somehow things played out and we could not get our home games at Central Coast Stadium and there are crowds permitted back in to 25% - where would you like them played? It is important I get some feedback here so I can push hard for what you guys want, IO have had some mixed responses already.
25% of Central Coast stadium capacity is our usual home crowd anyway.....so what's different ? :popcorn:
my preference is Gosford if at all possible.... if that is not possible, I agree with others in either WWS or Newcastle stadiums

If CCS is absolutely not possible then I’m not super fussed about where it is, however well and truly f**k playing out of Newcastle for a ‘home’ game. Would legitimately rather have us at Hobart or Perth.
BankWest would be alright I guess.
This is exactly how I feel.
That's why I begrudgingly agree with Marinermick. North Sydney Oval.
Don't like the place at all. Or getting there. But playing a home game in Newcastle is not on.

What a weird stance to let hang ups get in the way of the most practical alternative. It would be a middle finger to the fans on the northern end of the coast to take games even further away when the most practical option is on their doorstep. People on here wanted a members forum up at the Doylo or similar but now some would rather games in Sydney if we can't go to CCS?

I'd imagine it'll only be 1 or 2 not all 4 games and Shaun has already said they would be handled as a home game as far as crowds and member access goes. We aren't putting money in the jets pocket since they dont own or run the stadium. It's just the closest, most convenient, suitable ground anything else is significance the individual is putting on it.

Fair point. If it's our home game, then playing in Newcastle is more accessible to our region than North Sydney.

So much nonsense in this article though
That bloke must be as high as a kite, I actually had to double check Betoota hadn't started a sports section. Pearce should be starting, Ziggy LB, Rowles RB. The site should be embarrassed for posting an article so bad.

Changing a goalkeeper will result in a change of luck for the team is one of the dumbest things I have ever read on a football blog piece..

Birighitti doesn't exist apparently. How he isn't as good as Pearce I'll never know.

Did any effort go into this? aren't journalists meant to research before writing?

The Roar is just an internet forum so he really isn't a journalist. The guy writes predominantly on AFL though does seem to like football. A lot of similar articles about the other teams show that he doesn't watch much football.

Perth Glory v Central Coast Mariners – Saturday, 18th July, 5:00pm @ Central Coast Stadium
Central Coast Mariners v Newcastle Jets – Friday, 24th July, 7:30pm @ Central Coast Stadium
Central Coast Mariners v WS Wanderers – Monday, 27th July, 7:30pm @ Central Coast Stadium
Melbourne Victory v Central Coast Mariners – Monday, 3rd August, 7:30pm @ TBC

When I saw the leak i thought our last two home games in 4 days was a bit rough but adding the Perth game sweetens the deal. Will need to see if Shaun can get the members in free or with discounted entry for that one but im sure he'll do whatever he can.
