    Is that the one with Jesaulenko's Mark of the Century in it? Recently read an article on it.

    Anyway, off the top of my head:

    - Nick Faldo's turnaround of a six shot deficit to Greg Norman on the last round of the 1996 (IIRC) US Masters.
    - Liverpool coming back from 3-0 down at half-time against AC Milan to win the 2005 Champions League final.
    - The Botham/Willis test in the 1981 Ashes.
    - France coming back from 24-10 down v The All Blacks in the 1999 World Cup Semi-Final to win 43-31
    -Dennis Taylor coming back from 8-0 down to beat Steve Davis in the 1985 Snooker World Cahmpionship
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Remember watching that when I was about 8 and almost crying. We had nothing in the 2nd half.

    TBF Lamaison (sp?) was inspired in the second half. The game was worthy of the final (which was a bit of a damp squib, really). Might even go so far as to say the best game I've seen.

    Liverpool scored 3 in 45 minutes (and then had to rely on the luck of penalties to actually win it).

    United scored 2 in 3 minutes.

    Then also you remember that we had to comeback against Juventus in Turin in the semi, after being 2-0 down after 11 minutes. No-one won in Turin back then. That in itself isn't > Liverpool's, but the final is.

    It's only against the Blucerchiati and hardly on the same scale as Liverpool and Man U's efforts but I will always remember this comeback, truly unreal especially considering I went to the toilet at 0-2 and come back six minutes later and it was 3-2.

    Also Inter's comeback in this season SuperCup was pretty good as well.
