With the Round of 32 draw next week (June 29, live on Fox Sports), #MagicOfTheCup tragic Aidan Ormond offers his 12-1 top Cup moments in the tournament’s fabulous three-year history.
12: Cahill has City in Cup dreamland
The legend delivered when it mattered most. Tim Cahill. The Man. The Australian great sprinkled some of his undoubted magic on the 2016 FFA Cup final with a moment of classic "Timmy Time".
The only goal of an intense 90 minutes against Sydney FC was trademark Tim, and you could really sense how much winning that trophy meant for City that night.
11: Mooy’s Magic of the Cup
Seeing a future English Premier League player at your local club in the FFA Cup? It’s just another reason to love the Cup and boy did the maestro Mooy put a show on.
His best was a two-goal masterclass against Edgeworth with a couple of sizzling set pieces in 2015 to sink the brave Eagles 2-1, who showed plenty of class in front of their home support at Magic Park in front of almost 2,500 fans in the Round of 32.
10: Tuggies’ triumph in Tassie
Getting away with the lads and a professional preparation is a huge selling points for FFA Cup players.
Tuggeranong flew from ACT to a chilly Apple Isle and won an exhilarating penalty shootout in 2014.
"It'll go down in the annals of Tuggeranong history as one of the great performances," Tuggies coach Steve Forshaw said.
"To come all the way from Canberra, to play a very, very useful South Hobart outfit and to get the result, puts us in the final 16 of the national competition, the first one, so great effort.
Speaking of Tassie...
9: A slice of cheese!
... off the pitch, the Cup gave new media faces a time to shine. Enter the entertaining duo "Gilly and Corndog".
Absolute local legends who came to national broadcasting attention during Tassie Cup games, they added to the football lexicon with this gem: “A slice of cheese (a yellow card).
Add a host of other colourful phrases ("right down the hey diddle diddle") that had fans jumping on the Gilly and Corndog bandwagon.
8: Hume’s heroics
Hume were the story of 2015. Their run in the early rounds were full of breath-taking stories as they went all the way to the semi-finals.
Victory stopped them, though. And one then unknown player was about to parlay his Cup run into a full-time A-League career.
His name? Jai Ingham. And who does he play for now? That's right. Victory.
7: Naumoff’s screamers in Sydney Derby
Sydney United v Sydney FC. Old and new league heavyweights met on an absolutely brilliant night of football at a packed Edensor Park with Kiki Naumoff capped his night off by not one but two screamers in the Round of 16 clash in 2014.
Next week… 6-1! Which moments will make the cut? See you back here to wrap up the top 12 next week!
