With just one game of the 2014/15 Premier League season remaining, it's that time of the year when sports writers start preparing end of season reports and lists of top moments that occurred throughout the season.

After another memorable year that saw Chelsea eventually romp away with the league title and newcomers Queens Park Rangers and Burnley lose their Premier League status, we thought we'd get the ball rolling with a light-hearted look back at the moments which made us laugh.

These are just a handful of the entertaining moments we saw that makes the Premier League the most watched league in the world.

5. Not a Welsh town

Looking at Newcastle United's form demographic for the 2014/15 season, it's pretty bedazzling. 

It only took Magpies fans until October to realise that something wasn't quite right, and with their 'SackPardew.com' campaign, they unveiled a banner at the Liberty Stadium to make their feelings known in the funniest way possible.

The idea was quite genius, so credit to its inventor. The poster read 'LLDWLLLWWLWLLLLLLWLLDDLDL. Not a Welsh town. Our form in 2014'. If you're going to have a dig at your team at least add a bit of humour.

4. Knockout blow


Remember that time when social media was being flooded with Wayne Rooney jokes after a video emerged of him being knocked out by Phil Bardsley in his own home.

Now, don't worry. The Stoke City didn't go to his house and blatantly take away his consciousness, but the former teammates were having a "mock" boxing match in the Manchester United forward's house.

Rooney made good fun of the headlines, however. When he scored a couple of days later, he celebrated fashionably; throwing a few punches before falling onto his back as if he had just been knocked out cold. Comedy gold.

3. Return of the 'evil laugh'

If you have nightmares over creepy laughs, then I suggest you don't watch this one, although by its popularity on social media, you'd probably be in the minority of people who haven't seen it.

Last season, when Crystal Palace virtually drowned Liverpool's title hopes, fighting back from 3-0 down to draw 3-3, Tony Pulis' sinister laugh was triumphant on the Twitter trends.

But the return of the dark chuckle came at The Hawthorns a few months ago when Gary Lineker made a funny comment on the West Bromwich Albion manager's footwear. 

Here it is again if you missed out:

2. Classic Phil Jones

Phil Jones is well known for his funny faces, but he even outdid his self with his brave, yet comical clearance against Arsenal.

Olivier Giroud went through on goal after the defender slipped, but used the slippery surface to his advantage as he sprawled on his hands and knees to head the ball along the floor, off Giroud's knee and out for a goal kick. Great improvisation!

1. Accurate passing sometimes ISN'T a good trait to have

Cesc Fabregas is the king of passing in midfield. He can pick a ping when he wants, and how he wants. With such accuracy, he can hit any target. Literally.

During a mass confrontation between Chelsea and West Brom players, Fabregas asked for the ball before booting it into the crowd.

However, what happened next was just sheer luck, or bad luck if you're Cesc Fabregas. The ball whacked Chris Brunt on the side of the head, and the Spaniard was consequently sent off by Mike Jones. He really couldn't have picked a better shot if he tried.
