30 Oct 12 | Madejski Stadium, Reading | Capital One Cup
What. A. Come. Back.
Truly sensational from Arsenal, nobody could believe that the gunners would be able to turn things around after being 4-1down at half time. Arsenal were piss poor in the first half. But after Giroud and Eisfeld were introduced in the 61st minute, things changed and it changed rapidly. Arsenal displayed a stunning game play, completely different from the first half and made it 4-4 at the end of regular 90 minutes. The match went into extra time and the Chamakh scored twice to give Arsenal the win. A very special brace from Theo Walcott.
Those Arsenal fans who left at 4-0 must be cursing themselves so bad.
