Inter Milan's remarkable comeback

Did anyone else see the game today on British Eurosport where Inter Milan were trailing 2-0 at home to Sampdoria after 88 minutes only to produce the most remarkable and memorable turnaround Ive seen of all time to win 3-2 and preserve their undefeated streak?

 

Im an AC Milan fan but I got to give credit where credit is due and say that Inter Milan are the most entertaining team to watch this season if youre a neutral.

Yeah I've never really understood it... Unless you've got heritage from that country or club then why support them?

 

Pissed me off when people who supported United suddenly became Real fans when Beckham left too...

 

But back onto Inter...

 

Yeah great comeback but I've seen both teams play this year and Samp have been ordinary, Inter shouldn't have been in that position to start off with really...

 

Still not as good as City's comeback against Tottenham when 3-0 down anf with ten men... And thats coming from a Man U fan.

That is the single greatest comeback in football... We where dead, our players so morale sapped and tired from three huge games in a week... Hopes where so high and it seemed Basler's goal and German negativity would smite us on top of injury and suspension...

 

Then Sheringham and Ole produce theirs, the clubs and british footballs (in the last 15 years) finest hour and suddenly Munich were beaten and we had the treble... I cried, I jumped and screamed and hit my head on the floor doing a flip of absolute excitment and pleasure...

 

It is bar the day I lost my V the happiest, most pleasurable and exciting moment...

 

Man U, 1999 Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup winners...

 

The greatest season ever in club football!

The Michael Owen FA Cup Final rules all. :) I could go on for ages about that match and how it ended especially.

 

The Olympiakos game wasn't that bad either. ;)

 

Seriously, one of the best comebacks in recent years was Man City against Spurs in the Cup last year at White Hart Lane. 3-0 down, down to 10 men, and SOMEHOW, City won 4-3. Vintage FA Cup.

The FA cup final was my greatest moment as a Liverpool fan. My head was slumped on the arm of my sofa and I didn't think. I knew that we had lost. But the feeling when those goals went in, the second especially, was something to treasure. In fact, I dont think Ive experienced anything like it since until the Arsenal and Olympiakos games this season.

 

As far as comebacks go though, I also have to say the Man city Spurs game. People tend not to mention that their top goalscorer had limped off in the first half as well. Although the France England game at Euro 04 was something as well

considering Inter are the draw specialists that's pretty impressive, and I agree with most of what Gringo said, I'll never forget that night in Munich

 

WHO PUT THE BALL IN THE GERMAN NET?

*Cough* Tranmere Rovers, bottom of Division 1, showing no form, looking more and more certain of relegation, go 3 - 0 down to a Southampton side enjoying their best spell under Glen Hoddle. Tranmere a team with no confidence, no moral our key players that night? Nick Henry, a player who had a blood disorder which meant he couldn't play more than 60 minutes, Stuart Barlow who had scored 3 goals all season and was transfer listed and Paul Rideout who was 34 and past it.

 

Yes we won 4 - 3, best.FA Cup.comeback.ever!

Sorry to bring up a slightly old thread, but I forgot to reply to it. And I have to give to Inter, one of the greatest comebacks I've ever witnessed... 2nd only to fricking Man U's v Bayern.

 

I'm a diehard Samp fan as some of you may know.. and this was without a doubt the LOWEST point in my time as a Samp fan, even worse than the relegation years ago.

 

My older brother, an Inter fan, jumping around in front of me didn't help... I sat on the couch almost in tears :(

 

And the thing is Inter keep doing it, they got a goal back in the dying minutes against Chievo the other week to draw 1-1.

 

Shame they're only 1 point ahead of us now! HAH. We WILL have that last Champions League spot. Plus now we have Simone Inzaghi. We rock. :D

 

*Does the Samp dance*

I was always a big fan of the Samp side of the early 1990's... The one with the under rated Mancini, Vialli and Platt in the side. Shame Arsenal beat them in the Cup Winners Cup semi's on the way to losing to Zaragoza...

 

As for Inter, their defense is getting shoddy, wish I could say the same about Milans, thats gonna be a tough tie for my boys Man U...

Didn't Samp win the italian league in the early 90's, and get to a champion's league final at Wembley?

 

Speaking of comebacks, Man City against Spurs was amazing, although for me, I do remember a cracking Liverpool- Man U game at Anfield where Man Utd were 3-0 up inside half hour, and Neil Ruddock's header made it 3-3. Was a top game.

Yeah Samp got there and where beaten by a fantastic Barcelona side...

 

Also shame that great game (Nigel Cloughs best in a Liverpool shirt) was spoiled by accusations of Brucie's match fixing afterwards...

 

Still the best goal in the game was Irwin's free kick, classic...

Do we really need to talk about that Champions Cup Final? :(

 

Indeed Samp did win in 1990/91 (our only scudetto in history), and the league champions flag beside my desk still flies triumphantly. However, one Koeman free kick later and Sampdoria had lost the Champion's Cup final 1-0 to Barcelona.

 

And we drew with Siena today, AT HOME... when we had a perfect opportunity to go 4th again. So irritating.

 

Milan lost today as well, 2 weeks in a row now they've lost to mediocre teams so I wouldn't say they were invincible... Juventus, on the other hand...

I support Inter cus they're my favourite non British team for reasons that i won't go into and they rule. The comeback was awesome. Adriano rules and lets hope chelski dont get him. Norwich's 4-4 draw against Middlesbourgh was pretty awesome too. 4-1 down with 10 minutes to go. And for a team of their stature against a eam of Midds' stature that's a damn good comeback.

 

Of course how can you forget Coventry's magnificent performence against Man U. When we were 1-0 down with something like 2 minutes to go and Dion Dublin and a wonder goal by Huckerby sealed a 2-1 win. Everyone must remember that.
