Amazing Night At St James's Park

Tonight at St James's Park was witnessed one of those nights that rarely come along and perhaps that is a good thing as surely one's nerves can't handle too much of this! From being 1-3 down then clawing back to 3-3 with a goal in the fifth minute of injury time you'd have thought that this game had given you everything, despair at 1-3, hope at 2-3 then joy at 3-3 - but no, this game was to deliver ecstasy too a 4-3!
