One of the greatest comebacks in my memory has to be the 5-3 victory over Middlesbrough back in 2004.

With the Gunners needing to avoid defeat to equal Nottingham Forrest's long standing record for consecutive games without defeat (43), the mighty Arsenal find themselves 3-1 after Thierry Henry had given us a 1-0 lead with a delicious lob over the Boro keeper.

Three unanswered goals from Boro left Arsenal reeling. But with old head Dennis Bergkamp on the field Arsenal got back into the game with a Bergy strike only seconds after Boro's third.

Then ten minutes later chaos ensued as Robert Pires and Jose Antonio Reyes both scored in the 65th minutes to give Arsenal the equaliser and then the lead in an astonishing passage of play.

Martin Tyler's commentary still send shivers down my spine to this day ('RRREEEEEYYYYYEEEEESSSSSS!!!!!').

Thierry Henry completed the scoring in this once in a life time game of football on 90 minutes to cap off a crazy evening at Highbury.
