Its got to be up there. Tainted by Suarez, but the history books wont show that.

Has to be up there. Amazing!

But for me Liverpool beating Milan in the final was a bigger stage and so more impressive.

Manu V Bayern final 1999 just as good

Oh and the winner won the treble.

Didn't watch but how the hell can a team play so bad as to concede 6 goals, Was it like a Sunday league game?.

However credit to Barca it's an amazing comeback, Unbelievable.

Was that with the 2 goals right at the end? Only difference being i wouldn't often completely write Man U off in that situation, but I would definitely usually write off Liverpool at 3 down!

3 goals in the last 7 minutes, including a good free kick. It really shouldn't have been possible, but I suppose barca are that sort of team..

Ref gave them 2 non-pens and PSG gifted them 2 goals so Barca really only won 2-1.
No would be my answer.

Yeah, I read it on Skysports, It's surreal, They'll probably go on and win it.

I think they get alot of help from UEFA though, I remember Chelsea got cheated a few years back v Barca.

​Remember when Van Persie got a red card for shooting vs Barcelona in 2011? No? I do. Barca have always had UEFA in their pocket.

Liverpool did similar against Dortmund last season just in a longer time period

What happens to Arsenal in the UCL last 16
they 10-2 get knocked out

Yeah. The sooner we're out of the EU, the sooner we won't have to play those cheating foreigners. I'm with you on that one, shaune.

Ridiculous that video technology still isn't standard when you have such blatant cheating occurring so frequently.

It really infuriates me.

I'd be just as annoyed if a player from my own team did it. Its not needed. Play fairly for crying out loud.

I'd like to say the same, but sometimes support of our clubs blinds the best of us.

But for fairness, hopefully now that Blatter and PlatinI have left their posts football can finally catch up with the 21st century.

Good turnaround.

Neymars value just went up £20 million

Making him the highest transfer ever me thinks.

I honeatly cannot see him leaving Barcelona any time soon. Especially because, as you say, his value will be so high.

If he was to go, however, he would certainly be up there in terms of transfer fees.

He would go to Chelsea or Man City if the money was right for sure. But thats it. No where else to go.

It does matter.

The 1999 come back in ET to win the champions league without scholes and captain keane due to suspension and on top of that winning the treble could easily be named as the best comeback in history. The odds were against united before the whistle had blown. It was a tactical masterpiece from fergie as both subs scored to win the game.

I watched it live and remember it like yday. I also watched the liverpool 3-3 comeback and that was class too to be fair, but the odds before the game were not against Liverpool, nor were they missing any key players like united. Liverpool wouldn't of been able to do it without Gerrard as captain on the day. And in 1999 Keane was far more influential in games than Gerrard was.

To make you feel proud though deeky, i guess the 2012? 2013? season was a great comeback from mancity to win the title. Feel better now?.

Might as well spam this thread then, you obvioulsy think the United comeback was the best in history X) The pre-match circumstances don't make it a comeback X) The only relevant part is the late goals.

And yes, I would have to offer up City vs QPR as a better comeback. It also had a very special bonus, seeing the United fans jumping up and down cos they'd won the title X)

United had over 80 minutes to get just one goal to keep the game alive so nothing special in terms of a comeback.
It was a dramatic ending for sure just not a big comeback in terms of goals needed per minutes.
