Arsenal's Win At Reading And More 4-4 Comebacks (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

"Two-nil," so the cliché goes, "is a dangerous scoreline." But is 4-0 the new 2-0? Arsenal are best placed to comment having suffered the ignominy of throwing away a 4-0 lead at Newcastle United in February 2011 and then coming back from 4-0 down to go on and take make it game and set 7-5 (and match) against Reading in the Capital One Cup.

Even Manchester United haven't risen from the 4-0 rubble during Sir Alex Ferguson's reign to achieve a draw or a victory. So like the Terminator rising in the background, here are some other teams who never said die at 4-0 down and got their just rewards...

PORT VALE 4-4 QPR, 1997

NEWCASTLE 4-4 ARSENAL, 2011

And this is how bad it feels (CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE)*...

GERMANY 4-4 SWEDEN, 2012

*That reaction was after Newcastle got it back to 3-4.
