If you think about the characteristics of your every day pitch invader, most will agree that speed is an essential attribute to pulling off a successful run.
But then this happened in an A League tie between Central Coast Mariners and Sydney FC on Saturday and we are beginning to question everything.
How in the hell did he manage to get past security for starters?
Sydney were 2-1 up when this pitch invader, wearing a moon boot and crutches, decided to invade the Central Coast Stadium without security batting an eyelid.
He held his crutches in the air, celebrating like he'd just won the World Cup final, before security finally intervened. Play was even stopped to get this guy out the premises.
As you can imagine, this was a big talking point on social media, during and after the game. Forget about he scoreline, this bloke with crutches and a moon boot grabbed the headlines.
Here's just a few tweets to wet your appetite:
While Simon is the main option up front the club are limited. Nice finish today but both Hoole and Pain not up to it. Really missing a playmaker in central midfield. Certain inevitability about it all ...the pitch invader on his crutches looked more of a threat around the box:blush: pic.twitter.com/9HzlzlVf26- Steven Quilty (@Stevenqoz) December 1, 2018
Just witnessed a pitch invader in Central Coast Mariners v Sydney game. Nothing unusual you may say....but this pitch invader had crutches and a leg in a stookie and still got past the stewards/security and onto the pitch. And we think Scottish football stewards are pathetic!!- Paul Deery (@Zinaad) December 1, 2018
We still don't know how he managed to dodge security. Even Usain Bolt looks surprised.
Never change, the A-League.
