    Not just in terms of goals behind, but also remember the quality of your opposition and the quality of your side. Mine has to be going 3-1 behind as Wales v. Germany, and then coming back to win 4-3, with a deflected free-kick and two Joe Ledley masterful goals. Exhilarating.

    It was when I was playing with Man utd. It's the Champions league semi final first leg at Old Trafford and i'm playing Inter Milan. I lose 2-1 I thought that was us out. So I play the 2nd leg and to my surprise, my team play out of this world - especially Tevez who gets a hattrick and we beat them 3-1 so we go through 4-3 on aggregate. Thats probably my best ever comeback! Tears of joy

    mine is not a comeback but anyway - i'm playing as newcastle against portsmouth away. in the first half my players score 3 goals for a 0-3 lead at half time. until the 60-th minute it was already 3-3 and i was wondering what the hell happened to my players. then steven taylor gets sent off for a professional foul in the penalty area. shay given saved the penalty! then joey barton gets sent off for a second yellow in the 80-th minute. i made a sub - put smith for owen in midfield and played with no strikers. in the 94-th minute of the 3 minute added time shay given launched a long ball and smith got it and rounded the keeper and it was 3-4 for my 9-men team. i just couldn't believe this. how great is that!!

    I think he meant 4-0.

    My best comeback was in the Champions Cup quarter-final. The first leg in Milan was drawn 0-0, so we had no away goals. The second leg at Old Trafford started terribly, at half time AC Milan were 3-0 up, with three away goals. In the second half, I played 4-3-3 attacking, with mentality set to 'All out attack' and 'counter-attack' ticked, we won the game 5-3, with the last goal scored by Giggs in the 87th minute. Sadly we lost the semi final to Barcelona
    Wow, 54 - 0 down.

    Ah... the beauty of a target man with a 1 point advantage in jumping over the man marking him. Were any of the goals near post headers, by any chance?

    I had a few decent comebacks but I remember one specifically, though it was a 2 goal comeback. I was Arsenal playing who-knows-who and was 1:0 down, it wasn't an important game so I just set it to all out attack and laid back in my chair and I did something else for the rest of the game. Then Adebayor scored 2 injury time goals to win the game 2:1... Fairly decent, but not as nearly as 6 C(r)ouch goals

    Sounds like all this human cheating needs to be fixed in a patch. ...How's the AI supposed to have any fun when SI rigs the human to make great comebacks?

    Here's a strange one from FM 06, my Man Utd team, with probably the best defence in the game, loose 10-1 to Barcelona, in the next leg, with an allout atack tactic, manage to score 9 goals, I would have went through on away goals, but on the 95th (!!!) minute, Ronaldinho scored a tap in. 11-10 to Barcelona... I was gutted for about a month

    I'm Liverpool and 2-1 down after the first half at Old Trafford in the 2010-11 season. I change my tactics to all out attack with a 3-5-2 with 2 wingbacks and in the team talk, set everyone to angry and then 5 goals in the 2nd half. Wow!!
    Probably beats my Liv-Barca {0-1,0-2,1-2,1-3,2-3,3-3,4-3} comeback by a mile.

    Jurgen Cavens 6' Michael Owen 24',69'

    On the super Crouch and comeback theme: I was playing Pool (FM 07) and was 3-1 up, they bring on Crouch in the 63rd minute, 90th minute, 3-3, 2 Crouch goals and EIGHT shots from him, 8 shots in 27 minutes. It was literally Crouch against us, yeh maybe they made tall players a little too good on 07(he was actually doing MAJOR damage rampaging down my left wing.........).

    Welsh Premier League.

    I was 3-0 down and down to 10 men at half time, imagine my joy when I came back and won 4-3 in injury time.

    Maybe not the biggest of games but I was rather delighted.

    It was the 2006 Champions league final. I was Liverpool and we were 3-0 down at half time. I rallied the troops and we clawed it back to 3-3. It went to penalties and Dudek saved against Sheva. It was great.

    Oh wait no, sorry that was real life.

    Never done a great comeback. Only against me Eg. 5-1 up at Half "Dont get complacent" lose 6-5 usual FM style.

    I was Everton and playing in the UEFA cup quarter-final against Bayern Munich. Lost first leg at home 4-0. I thought all was lost but in the away leg, I managed to score two goals before halftime. I put on James Vaughan for Yakubu. Bayern scored 1 more goal from a penalty but Vaughan scored an amazing hat-trick in the last 15 mins. Won on away goals rule.

    Mine was in the last 16 of the Champions League, as Arsenal I drew 1-1 away to HSV of Germany, and was a little annoyed as I'd done enough to win the game but I said to myself "I got the crucial away goal"...

    25 minutes into the 2nd leg and I'm 3 nil down, and they'd only had 2 shots - the 3rd goal being an own goal - making it 4-1 on aggregate thus I have to score 4 to go through.

    Van Persie scored twice in 5 minutes before half time leaving me with 2 goals to find in the 2nd half. Eduardo scored with 20 minutes to go leaving HSV winning on away goals, then with only 6 minutes left on the clock Van Persie completes his hat trick, and for the 1st time in the tie we were ahead and that's the way it stayed, and we went on to win the title that season, so that's why it was my greatest comeback, defaintley my most thrilling game to date.

    Playing as Liverpool, I was away at Man Yoo where we went 3-0 up inside 20mins and just before half time Rio was sent off for a professional foul.

    Second half and crushingly Man Yoo score goals on 46, 48, 51, 57 and 77 mins. Result 5-3 :angry:



    Yes, my PC may have beat me at football manager; but it was no match for me at Kick-Boxing.

    Haven't really had to have a comeback. Probably my greatest was against Portsmouth when playing as Sheff Wed in the premiership. Was 1-0 behind before equalising. Then Portsmouth took it to 3-1 before we got 2 late goals to equalise. Nothing special though.

    Wycombe versus Aab, UEFA Cup first round, home leg.

    It was 3 or 4 seasons into the game, Wycombe was mid championship table. Won previous League Cup not having to play anybody serious until the semi final and final (Reading & Portsmouth). The rest was taken cared by the miraculous attacking duo: Rence Van der Wal + Craig Lindfield.

    Half time: 0-2, hairdrier treatment. An hour gone, 0-3. I was ready to sub Van der Wal, who missed every one-on-one we created. Lindfield then headed on a deep cross. From an impossible angle, Van der Wal thumped it home. Right off the restart, we won the ball, sent it to van der Wal to circumvate their entire defense to score again. 2-3. Wycombe ended up winning 4-3 with minutes to spare. That was pretty frigging exhilarating.

    Met Arsenal in the semi final of the League Cup, away leg.

    Half-time, 0-2, again the hair dryer treatment. Lindfield took over, scoring 3 within 15 minutes. Changed to a more conservative playing style to protect the lead, only for Adebayor hitting the post twice before finally equalized. I was satisfied enough with an away draw before Lindfield scored his 4th in the 93rd minute. 4-3!!! Hahah, pwned, Wenger!!!!

    Sadly, there was a second leg to play. With them itching to revenge, and our sooper sekrit WMD not so motivated having proven their points, there was no other surprise. Arsenal spanked Wycombe 5-1. It was ugly.

    3-0 up against Spurs in the FA cup as Norwich at half time, thinking I'm onto a right little earner with a good cup run, 2nd half Berba scores 4, Bent gets one and Benoit Assou f*****g Ekouto or whatever his name is even manages to get 1!

    Not totally in line with the subject, but i had two 4-3 comebacks and a 6-4 comeback in four games, all with players praising my team talks in the media afterwards. I said the same thing at half time, and used the same tactic in the second half three times. Quite amazing.

    (The other game was a 1-0 loss to Blackburn incase you were wondering)
