    Greatest comebacks from losing positions


    1 Not allowed!
    I noticed Salford City who are top of Vanarama north were 4-0 down on Sat with 9 mins to play and drew 4-4.

    Got me trying to remember what was the Albion's biggest comeback from the jaws of defeat, but I can't think of one on that scale.

    What is the biggest comeback you know of.?

      My dad, who supported Charlton before moving to Brighton in the late 50s, never used to tire of telling me how Charlton, down to 10 men and losing 5-1 to Huddersfield with half an hour left turned the game round with 5 goals to lead 6-5. Huddersfield then equalised, but Charlton got a late winner to make the game 7-6. Huddersfield were the first, and as far as I know only, side to ever score 6 goals in a league match and lose. A Charlton played (Johnny Summers?) scored 5. Amazing stuff.

      The law dictates Salford should have lost that match 5-4 with a goal from the very last kick of the game.

      Right on both counts. Paul Emblen scored a hattrick.

      This is one for @alfredmizen. I wonder if he was there too. My stepdad was a massive Chelsea fan and sometimes took me to games. I was at a game at the Bridge in the late 70s/early 80s where Chelsea went 3-0 down against Bolton very early on but scored 4 goals in the last 10 minutes to win the game.

      I can't recall seeing a bigger one than that although did Arsenal come back from 4 goals down against Reading a few years ago?

      The Salford game, they were not only 4-0 down on 81 minutes; they were still 4-1 down on 89 minutes.

      The equaliser was from a soft penalty in the 96th minute. Kidderminster not impressed.

      The girls rugby team that I coach were losing 36-5 at half-time yesterday but drew 48-48. That was a good feeling

      Spurs v United, is the biggest, and most famous of the Premier League era, I'd say.

      HT Spurs 3-0 United
      FT Spurs 3-5 United
