    CL finals 99 and 2005 definitely top the list. Barcelona-PSG last season and Spurs 3-5 United are up there as well.

    Palace 3-3 Liverpool was the only good thing in that shite season.

    That sounds insane. The defenders for both teams need to have long hard looks at themselves though.

    I've just seen a show entitled Football's Greatest Comebacks. Highlights include Marseilles v Montpellier in 1998-99, which Marseille won 5-4 having been four down, West German Bayer Uerdingen win 7-3 on the night to win 7-5 on aggregate having been 5-1 down against their rivals from the east Dynamo Dresden in a 1985/86 CWC Quarter-Final and Flamengo overcoming Santos in 2011 via a Ronaldinho hattrick to win 5-4 after being 3-0 down (one of which a Puskas Award-winning goal from a young Neymar).

    2004...I remember City being 3-0 away to Spurs at White Heart Lane in the FA cup...and then Barton got sent off leaving the pitch at half time so they were down to 10 men. City ended up winning 4-3. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/fa_cup/3447235.stm

    THe same year we ended up beating City 4-2 in the cup despite Neville getting sent off for diving and then having some kind of meltdown.

    Difficult to top being down 3-0 at half time against a fantastic Milan side in the CL final and then go on to win it.

    Mali v Angola, was 4-0 to Angola 10 minutes before the end. I remember some student put all his savings which was several thousand pounds on Angola winning at 1.01 and lost.

    It was still 4-1 in 88th minute.

    Barcelona v PSG too, obviously. Probably even better.

    Liverpool vs AC Milan 2005

    Considering the outrageous disparity between the two sides and being 3-0 down at half time it's an easy winner for me

    On the plus side if Liverpool can win with a team as average as that against a Milan as good as that then there's hope for us yet.

    We'd sit back with 10 men behind the ball at 3-0 though.

    Patriots vs Falcons in last year's Super Bowl.
    Cavs vs Warriors in NBA Finals being down 3-1.

    Football related and less known: Antwerp vs Vitosha in UEFA Cup '89. 1-3 down after 87' they managed to turn it around and win 4-3.

    Not a comeback per se, but Spain beating Malta 12-1 to qualify ahead of Holland for the 84 euros was quite the comeback.

    Also the most obviously bought and paid for result in the history of sports, but meh, water under the bridge.

    Newcastle 4 - 4 Arsenal from 7 years ago. Arsenal were 4-0 up at one point. Don't think the Gooners have ever recovered from that.

    Taking the occasion into account, the 1954 World Cup final (Hungary 2 - Germany 3) has to be up there.

    But David Bowie's The Next Day, obviously.

    I will never forget the 3-5, was at the pub with ALL my United supporting mates. I was giving it a massive amount of mouth the whole first half and during half time, we had played some lovely stuff. But as soon as Cole put that away after the first minute of the second half I knew we were beaten.

    I remember Arsenal went 4-0 down to Reading by half time in the League Cup. Went on to win 7-5 after extra time.

    Not the greatest of all, but Chelsea 2-4 Bradford in the FA Cup is worth a mention. Impressive for a League One side to come back from 2-0 down against the Premier League leaders.

    Got to be the second leg of the CL semi final against Juventus in 99. 2 nil down after 11 minutes, it looked all over for us until Captain Keano got us back in the game, and forced us on to the win and on to the final, getting himself booked and banned for the final in the process. The definition of sacraficing yourself for the team and why he is a legend.

    One of the greatest comebacks and I would say the most important comeback in our modern history.

    MLS Cup 2003 Conference Semis. San Jose 5-4 LA Galaxy. San Jose lost 2-0 in the away (1st) leg and went 2-0 down early in the 2nd (home) leg. Won the tie 5-4 after extra time. No away goals rule was used at the time.

    Thrilling 2nd leg.
