The weirdest and funniest moments from the 2022/23 season

As another season reaches its conclusion, we’ve decided to look back at the most memorable moments to have happened away from the pitch in 2022/23.

From big name fall-outs, to a bizarre mid-season World Cup and some truly terrible poetry, we’ve looked at some of the weird and wonderful moments from a campaign to remember.

Here are the weirdest and funniest moments from the 2022/23 season.

Tuchel and Conte clash

A fiery London derby saw the opposing managers clash at Stamford Bridge, with the post-match handshakes turning into a Stamford Bridge brawl.

Of all the people to give their analysis, Youtuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul weighed in on his assessment of the managerial match up.

Allan Saint-Maximin’s shirt swerve

Cold-blooded from Newcastle’s flamboyant Frenchman, who gave this shirt-craving supporter the same swerve that leaves many full-backs with twisted blood.

Just. Act. Casual.

Ronaldo blanks Carragher…and Neville

Given so much has happened since, it’s easy to forget that Cristiano Ronaldo began this season as Manchester United’s reigning Player of the Year.

Ronaldo’s situation soured rapidly during the season’s opening months before an explosive exit, but not before the forward had taken objection to criticism from Sky Sports’ punditry team.

Jamie Carragher was first to be blanked, before Ronaldo’s former team-mate Gary Neville was given the cold shoulder. Off the Christmas card list, indeed.

World Cup fake fans

The World Cup was both controversial and compelling, a tournament that proved a fantastic spectacle on the pitch but was mired in issues away from it.

The Qatari authorities were accused of paying ‘fake fans’ in a bid to improve the image of the tournament and build atmosphere in the Middle East.

We’ll let you make up your own minds on this one…

‘The best thing since sliced veg’

Jack Grealish, never change.

Match of the Day’s ‘mare

The BBC got done with an all too familiar prank, as some rather inappropriate noises came through during a live broadcast.

The old ones are often the best.

“What a big baby… baby!”

Roy Keane had little sympathy for Andy Roberton earlier this season, after the Liverpool left-back appeared to be elbowed by linesman Constantine Hatzidakis in a bizarre incident at half-time of the Reds’ 2-2 draw with Arsenal.

The delivery of the third baby is comedy gold.

Daryl Dike

In August, West Brom forward Daryl Dike confessed to accidentally washing his clothes with dishwasher tablets.

For EIGHT months.

The 22-year-old American is in fact brighter than his error – and perhaps clothes – would suggest and graduated with a first-class honours degree in finance last summer.

Zinchenko cops it from City players

Manchester City were keen to rub it in to former team-mate Oleksandr Zinchenko, after beating Arsenal in the FA Cup in January.

There were little brother vibes going on at the Etihad, as the City stars took turns in winding up the Ukrainian.

‘Hard as a totem poll’

Ryan Giggs was a great footballer.

He has, however, a rather long list of indiscretions off the pitch and is a truly terrible poet.

If you can read this and not squirm, something’s not right.

Klopp’s sore celebration

Liverpool’s 4-3 win over Tottenham was one of the games of the Premier League season and Diogo Jota’s late goal sparked wild celebrations from the Liverpool bench.

Jurgen Klopp – aggrieved with the decisions from the officials all game – set off in celebration to confront the fourth official. However, he was forced to hastily retreat, clutching his hamstring as he hobbled back to his technical area.

Ice-pack needed.
