This is the whole of that incredible match - Newcastle United 4-4 Arsenal - on DVD. It was the greatest comeback in Premier League history.
On the 5th February, 2011, Newcastle United entertained high-flying Arsenal at St James' Park, in front of 51,561 passionate supporters. However, for Newcastle, it was the worst possible start to a game - we were 4 goals down within half an hour! Theo Walcott opened the scoring after only 1 minute, and Johan Djourou added the 2nd only two minutes later. Then, a van Persie double on 10 and 26 minutes apparently sealed the points for Arsenal. One or two home fans left at half time.
However, a resilient Newcastle team emerged after the break, and with Diarby shown the red card early in the second half following fouls on Joey Barton and Kevin Nolan, Alan Pardew's side sparked into life. Joey Barton scored from the spot after 68 minutes and Leon Best made it two with 15 minutes to go. With time running out and the pressure on the Arsenal goal relentless we were awarded a second penalty, which Barton slotted away to set up a barn-storming finish. The noise of the crowd was incredible. And with only 3 minutes remaining the ball came out Cheick Tiote who, from 30 yards, struck the perfect volley which curled into the corner and nestled gloriously in the back of the net. The impossible comeback was complete!!!
Kevin Nolan might even have won the game for Newcastle in injury-time, but that was a little too much to ask.
