I've been having a debate with a friend (who happens to be a Newcastle fan) and he's under the impression this was the 'Best Comeback Ever' now I think that's a little stupid due to some of the other comeback's that have been played, one example is Liverpool's comeback in the Champions League Final, which many consider to be 'The Best', also after Arsenal went 4-0 up they had to play the majority of the game with 10 men.

"they were terrorised by the noise of 52,000 fired up fans and some unbelievable team spirit second half. Arsenal are the best footballing side in the country man, 4-0 up with 40 minutes to see out against a strike force as thin as ours. Howay your argument falls flat on it's face. Once in a life time stuff." - A quote from him.

I'd like to hear the views of Newcastle fans on this, and also other peoples views.


Any silly comments and arguing I will close the thread.

the liverpool comeback has greater significance because it was the champions league final, but our comeback on saturday was still special, we are the entertainers again.

I agree with your friend. It was UNBELIEVABLE to watch, god knows what Pardew said to them at half time, but its just unheard of for a team to even get near to coming back from 4-0 down.

Not the greatest ever, but quite possibly the greatest ever in the Premiership. Also Arsenal did not play the majority of the game with 10 men.

Lol that's ridiculous, Newcastle managed to comeback because Arsenal didn't turn up in the second half. Liverpool's was just magical.

Still to score 4 goals, in 40 minutes against Arsenal, when 4-0 down, ten men or not, that is ******* special.

But on the other hand, you could say Liverpools was just AC milan having 7 minutes of Imploding. Just saying it works both ways.
