It is very astonishing when a team comes back from being 4-0 down, but here there were many referee errors which helped Newcastle come back. The two penalties shouldn't have been given and without those, they wouldn't have managed to score 4 goals. I have experienced the same thing at the game Koln-Bayern, where Bayern completely dominated the first half, being 2-0 up and in the second half being a completely other team and Koln scoring 3 goals and made me very upset. This had to do with the lack of concentration of Bayern players as well with the nothing to loose attitude of Koln players. But still, if the stronger team plays the same and the referee doesn't help the other one, this type of games are not very possible.

I think the Newcastle crowd deserves the praise for this comeback. They stood behind their team despite being 4-0 down and cheered for every move the team made. This shows what fan following can do to a game. The sending off of Diaby gave them the numerical advantage and the will to fight back in the game.

I think any coach will praise the team after the kind of fightback that Newcastle showed against Arsenal. It was a truly a great comeback and one that was really fought hard by the team. I think personally though Pardew's job is under a lot of scrutiny. The fans did not like him coming in for Hughton whom they were all behind. And then the sale of Andy Carrol has not really endeared him to the fans. But more performances like this from his team and he could win back the fans. Cheers! Ram

I suppose when you are 4-0 down at half time, you have nothing to lose. I imagine the sending off helped Newcastle, as it meant that Arsenal sat back and let Newcastle attack them. It was an amazing comeback, and when things like this happens, it proves why it's the greatest game around and why we love it so much. I feel sorry for the Newcastle fans who left the stadium when Arsenal were 4-0 up. They missed the best comeback ever. I bet they are as sick as a parrot.
