Attending a match at Central Coast Stadium is a truly unforgettable experience.

And this is solely due to the gigantic inflatable sauce bottles that canvass one end of the ground.

Just as Forrest Gump’s mum foretold, you never know what you’re gonna get with these beautiful bottles, so here’s of their most famous (and infamous) emotional states.

1. Patriotic

It is always a lovely sight to see the boys parading their Central Coast Mariners colours. In this case, the tomato and mustard bottles – and their saucy pie friend – are a true example for passionate fans to follow.

2. Proud


The sauce bottles up at Gosford are not only fanatical but also so proud of their side. If this tomato sauce bottle had a mouth he would be beaming from ear to ear.

3. Absolutely Flying

This incredible tomato sauce airship has taken the emotion “absolutely flying” quite literally. He’s just that ecstatic about life and the Mariners.

Sadly, no one’s had the heart to break it to him that they are winless from five matches.

4. Cheeky

Kosmina’s shocking chokehold on Muscat. Berisha’s blatant penalty dive against Perth in the 2011/12 final. Del Piero’s picture perfect free-kick on debut.

These are just some of the moments that just flat-out do not compare to this infamous incident in the season’s first F3 Derby.

With his forefathers in the background a brazen barbecue sauce bottle did what had to be done and flipped off Newcastle Jets fans in the most gracious of manners.

His brand even released a statement warning the Bottle after the match.

5. Imposing

Honestly, who knows what this fella has got up his inflatable sleeve.

But regardless, we don’t want to know. Let’s move on.

6. Angry

This barbecue sauce bottle certainly is earning a reputation for trouble.

If results fail to change, we may even see some of the bottle’s notorious left-right-goodnights.

7. Deflated

Now this is a sad sight.

We should never take the effort these sauce bottles put in for granted, because they suffer just like us.

8. Hurt

Sometimes it is the players you love that let you down most.

Maybe betrayals like these are what has shaped the Barbecue Sauce Bottle into who he is today.

9. Comforted

If there is one thing that these bottles can count on it is the love and affection of some club legends and one of their former fathers.

Never change, sauce bottles.
