The season so far: your top ten


It’s been a season of many highs & milestones but which have been the best? We asked you to compile the top ten.

Before our match against Brisbane Roar we asked for your season highlights. These are your top ten moments from Season 2013/14.

Don’t agree? Have something to add? Where would Ono’s farewell or the comeback against Heart fit in? Maybe the 2-0 revenge against Ulsan Hyundai? Tell us on our Facebook page!

1. First Home Derby win & Alessi debut

The Round 14 match not only saw the first ever home win by either team in a Sydney Derby but introduced 16 year old Daniel Alessi to the Red and Black faithful. Relatively unknown when announced, his name was soon on everyone-s list as he proceeded to mark Alessandro Del Piero out of the contest.

2: Cannuli scoring in final home match
Wally Van Gool

Australian Football legend Catherine Cannuli retired from football this season and went out in style, scoring a goal with her final kick in her last ever home match and against rivals Sydney FC. Her emotional reaction with fans, friends and team mates after the game will stay in the minds of those who were there forever.

3: Juric goals inspire Adelaide comeback

After making his home debut two weeks prior, new signing Tomi Juric truly introduced himself to the Wanderers fans when he scored two second half goals to steal a 2-1 win over Adelaide United. His first goal was class and the atmosphere was deafening when he headed in the winner with just minutes to go.

4: Away support in Round One

With the highly anticipated second season beginning with a Grand Final re-match, thousands in Red and Black made the journey to Gosford, taking over the stadium. Having fallen behind, the crowd lifted and the crescendo drove the players on to equalise.

5: Our first Champions League goal

When it comes to single moments, none were better than when Brendon Santalab scored against Ulsan Hyundai barely a minute in to the contest. With a huge off-field build-up for the competition, the early goal sent the crowd wild, showing that the Wanderers were serious about conquering Asia.

6: Our first win in the Champions League

With the Club-s AFC Champions League debut not going to plan, a young team went to China and proceeded to dominate a well-supported Guizhou Renhe. The away win not only lifted the Red and Black in to second place in the group with a real chance of making it to the knock-out stages, it ticked-off an important milestone in the Wanderers history.

7: Away Derby win and Allianz Stadium take-over

With the season in its infancy, victory in the opening Sydney Derby was very sweet indeed. Ono-s goal was as cheeky as it was masterful and the travelling fan base comprehensibly out-sang the Sky Blue.

8: First tifo against Wellington

Often a highlight on match days, the RBB-s tifo for the opening home match of the season against Wellington Phoenix was one to be savoured. The impressive work of art one of the best fan-made displays in Hyundai A-League history.

9: Christmas Lights against Mariners

Pirtek Stadium was in for a treat two days before Christmas as, during the 2-0 win against the Mariners, the entire stadium lit up with over 15,000 white fluorescent lights held up by fans sparkling in the night. It was a magical scene and one befitting of the holiday season.

10: Jerrad Tyson-s debut and cleansheet

A fan favourite due to his community work and professional attitude, Jerrad Tyson finally made his debut when the Wanderers travelled to Perth. With a number of good saves the cult-hero kept a cleansheet sending good vibes throughout the Red and Black fanbase.
