The funniest moments from the 2021/22 A-League Men season

-

After a season like no other, it would only be fair to acknowledge the brighter side of the A-League Men competition. We at The Football Sack count down our top five funniest moments of the 2021/22 season in no particular order.

Adama Traore puts A-League All Stars in front, equalises for Barcelona minutes later

No, this is not a grammatical error. Not only were there two Adama Traores on either team, but Adama Traore marked Adama Traore and Adama Traore scored and so did Adama Traore.

How’s that for a tongue twister.

Seriously though, it was the matchup the fans wanted and it delivered with both scoring for their teams.

If someone told a non-football fan that Adama Traore scored twice and neither was an own goal, it would likely leave them clueless.

Victory fans cheer on Wellington against City

Last game of the season, Premiers Plate up for grabs. Melbourne Victory are holding first-place and need Wellington to hold out Melbourne City to secure it.

Every fan and team knows the power of home-field advantage, so why not cheer on the opposition team against your cross-town rivals – in person.

Victory fans decided to show up to AAMI Park and sit with the minimal Phoenix fans in the away bay, hoping to deter City from winning and securing their second consecutive Premiers Plate.

Although they weren’t enough to stop a City onslaught, it still proves the lengths fans will go for their club.

Just kick the ball away Daniel

Western Sydney Wanderers were holding a 1-0 lead with minutes left in the game. The ball is kicked backed to goalkeeper Daniel Margush with no-one within 20 metres of him.

Two options here: kick it downfield and away from danger or make yourself look silly, commit a foul that leads to Brisbane Roar’s equaliser and get sent off.

Roll the tape.

Cumdoggggggg

Having a nickname like such, it is deserving to be mentioned on this list.

With speculation mounting regrading the Scottish striker signing with Central Coast Mariners in the early stages of the season, everyone was quick to share their thoughts on social media.

Mainly regarding his aptronym ‘Cumdog’.

Jason Cummings has engraved his mark on the A-League Men with his play style and talent, and also his nickname, with supporters preaching ‘Cap the Cumdog’ constantly after some incredible performances.

Western United duo streak press conference

This season Western United were crowned A-League Men champions for the first time in their three-year stint in the competition.

With punters writing United off from the start, especially considering John Aloisi’s record with previous clubs, it was all the more reason to celebrate.

United striker Lachie Wales and reserve goalkeeper Ryan Scott decided to have some fun with their coach and forward Aleksander Prijovic’s press conference post-game, pouring alcohol on the pair while chanting and screaming.

In a week full of streakers in the world game globally, many would feel this to be a suitable way to do so.
