Since the A-League began we’ve seen a host of banners. Many may have failed to live up to expectations while others will live long in the memories of all A-League supporters.

We look back at some of the more light-hearted and entertaining banners which have popped up at A-League matches across Australia.

From the weird to the wacky, here are the best A-League banners to grace the A-League.

Graham Arnold – Long live the King (Sydney FC)

As we saw in round three’s Sydney Derby, the Sydney FC coach certainly has the support of the Sky Blues faithful. Adored by supporters, The Cove thought that their banner would be the perfect way to show their appreciation for Arnie.

Unveiled only minutes before kick-off against their sworn rivals, the banner may have spurred on Western Sydney Wanderers as they drew first blood in the fiery affair.

Gone to the pub – When all else fails, head to the pub! (Central Coast Mariners)

Central Coast Mariners’ fans took matters into their own hands after their poor start to the 2015/16 A-League season.

In protest against Football Federation Australia, the Yellow Army supporter group boycotted their match against Melbourne City at Central Coast Stadium.

Judging by the banner, the Yellow Army had reportedly gone to the pub and rightly so as their side was hammered 5-1 by a ruthless City side.

Aaron Mooy and Patrick Kisnorbo – City’s banner backfires (Melbourne City)

Melbourne City fans unveiled this banner with the best of intentions however their execution was questionable.

This banner was created in tribute to the recently departed Patrick Kisnorbo and Aaron Mooy. Kisnorbo retired at the end of the previous campaign while Aaron Mooy left for Huddersfield in the English Championship.

The creators of the banner should be commended for their representation of Kisnorbo however Aaron Mooy’s image is far less flattering.

The comical shape of the 27-year-old’s head caused a stir across social media as fans voiced their opinions on one of the strangest banners to grace the A-League.

Even Mooy had his say!

Terry McFlynn – The Sky Blue saint (Sydney FC)

With the 33-year-old set to retire at the end of 2013/14 A-League campaign, Sydney fans thought that a colourful banner would be the best way to thank their skipper for his service to the Sky Blues.

Fans didn’t hold back in their depiction of McFlynn with the Irishman represented as a saint with the Sydney Opera House under his arm and an Ulster flag above his head.

McFlynn spent over 10 years wearing the Sky-Blue jersey and although he may not fit the description of a saint in a biblical sense, he sure did from a footballing perspective.
