The Vibe Manager
by Andy Bernal
From being last on the A-League table for three consecutive years to 2019-20, the Central Coast Mariners made their way into three consecutive finals series until ultimately succeeding as champions in 2022-23.
The Vibe Manager - Inside the Central Coast Mariners 2022-23 A-League Championship is an intimate and honest portrayal of the successful 2022-23 season from the perspective of former Socceroo, Andy Bernal.
As an advisor to new Chairman Richard Peil, Andy joined new coach Nick Montgomery as part of the back-room crew that took the 'littlest club in the league' to be A-League champions for only the second time. Officially the Director of Athlete Development, Andy was also dubbed by Nick Montgomery as 'The Vibe Manager' helping to build the group of young and journeymen players into a champion team.
Andy Bernal writes with the same candour, humour and insight which characterised his first book, Riding Shotgun - the Autobiography of the Original Wizard of Oz.
This is the first time an A-League club has been the focus of a book.
