Mariners looking strong for next season.... Okon has assembled a decet squad so far 

Da Silva deal under FFA scrutiny. Apparently, FFA won't register him till it is sorted.

26yo who has only played 76 career games in La Liga 2 for 14 goals & who has spent the last 6 months lying on a beach in Thailand. 

It's a risk I wouldn't be taking.

WOUT BRAMA MAKES TRANSFER TO AUSTRALIA

July 29, 2017

Experienced midfielder signs Down Under a contract for two seasons.

Wout Brama departs directly at FC Utrecht to go on an adventure with the Australian Central League Mariners. 

Brama was taken over by PEC Zwolle in the last winter, despite a continuous contract. FC Utrecht did that under the same contractual conditions as the Zwollenaren so that Brama could instantly fill in the position of the seriously injured Rico Strieder. 

Technical manager Erik ten Hag: "Wout made the move to FC Utrecht last season and he managed to complete the gap of Rico's position. He manifested himself as a very experienced player within our team and proved a great service with his team and his leadership. Wout has been a great wish for a foreign adventure for several years now. He agreed to a transfer to FC Utrecht on the condition that the club would work on a transfer if such a unique opportunity arose. Now this chance is over, Wout wants to grab these too. 

FC Utrecht thanked him for his contribution and commitment in recent months and wishes him a great success. Down Brama joined FC Utrecht in the Eredivisie, in the battle for the KNVB Cup and in the Europa League. In total, he played 21 parties for the Judges. 

The almost 31-year-old midfielder began his career at FC Twente, where he came to 231 competitions in 9 seasons. He was of great value among various trainers and celebrated various achievements in Enschede, such as the 2010 Country Championship. After his period at Twente, Brama passed 2.5 seasons at PEC Zwolle. Should be such a unique opportunity. Now this chance is over, Wout wants to grab these too. FC Utrecht thanked him for his contribution and commitment in recent months and wishes him a great success.

Well you guys had to spend the banked salary cap of the last 2 years. If you didn't questions would have asked.

Plus beating the jets must have been sweet.

Dark horse! Will be very hard to break down, and look stronger than Roar, Adelaide, Nix, Jets, Glory. Will give every other side a run for their money.

There's not much better in the A-League season than a trip to the Central Coast when they are strong.

Full stadium. Great atmosphere (mostly provided by us and partly by the brass band at the northern end). Great pre game pub where we are welcome. Great march. Scorching sun and humidity. It's a farking great day out.

CCM is Gosford is just basically like a home community round style game, never feels like an away game. Always hot and always humid as you say. I will miss the one in December though :nono:

Guess that means the Mariners are on the wrong side of the gap?

In February this year, Lincoln City, who were in the 5th tier of England, made it to the 5th round of the FA Cup by beating (among others) Cheltenham who were in League Two, AFC Wimbeldown who were in League One, and then Leeds United from the Championship.

They were drawn against Burnley, who are a Premier League team that avoided relegation that year.

Lincoln won 1-0 with a goal just before stoppage time.

Even against Arsenal, they only lost 2-0. How wide is the gap between the English 5th tier & 1st tier?

Blacktown City had basically every advantage an NPL team can have in this fixture. Mariners are barely in pre-season, and are one of the worst teams in the comp. Blacktown are at the pointy end of their league season. Blacktown were at home like every NPL vs A-League game. They have a synthetic pitch. A-League sides hate synthetic pitches. It would probably be torn up and replaced by grass if they were ever playing first tier. About the only thing that evened out was a few of Blacktown's better players were hurt, balanced by Mariners not having recruited their full squad yet.

If this Blacktown squad were in an 11 team A-League, over a ~30 game season they'd finish last.

Weren't the WSW the first HAL side to be knocked out of the FFA cup by a lower tier team?

Yup. And then we won the ACL a few months later.

Making huge blanket statements about the quality of tiered leagues based on a handful of one-off games is silly.
