Best player you've ever seen play against us

What is the single best performance you've ever seen from an opposition player against us?

Mine is Henry when Arsenal beat us 4-0 at home. The best player I've ever seen play live before.

Yeh was gonna say Henry. Or Hameur Bouazza when Charlton beat us 4-2 in 2008.

2010 game v Villa in the FA Cup. 2-0 up at HT but Ashley Young and John Carew absolutely tore us to pieces in the second half.

They were a really decent side under Martin O’Neill.

Victor Moses 2009/10, he almost retired Tabb.

This is always my answer as well. Tbf, that whole Arsenal team was unreal.

Yeah this one sticks out for me as well, was only a nipper at the time as well. Couldn't do anything about it.

Demitar Berbatov who scored 4 goals in the amazing 6-4 match in December 2007.

Not the best player, but best performance -- Brian Jenson the Burnley keeper at Turf Moor in the 2008 / 2009 season pulled off save after save with a little bit of help from the woodwork .

They had a hoodoo over us that season. We were the better team across the 2 playoff legs but they scored 2 once a season worldies in 20 minutes.

Henry.....just head and shoulders above everyone that day. That team underachieved big time. Fabregas and Hleb also that day were also almost unplayable.

He was phenomenal in that game. We should have been about 10-0 up and then Robbie Blake and his stupid fcuking underpants won the game for them.

Weirdly I don't think he was even the best player in that game. Roberts could've had a hat trick by half time. He absolutely terrorised us. Any time he got the ball we collectively sh@t ourselves.

In the game we ended up winning 3-2 v WBA? He was very good that day.

I was going to say Henry and Moses. To be honest when we were in the Premiership none of the big names impressed me, with the exception of Henry.

I felt James Milner vs Newcastle Utd in October 2007 showed he was much better than all the other players on the pitch when he came on as sub that day and turned a comfortable 2-0 scoreline into a scary 2-1 victory for us. Kitson did score a wonderful goal tbh. Michael Owen was awol on the pitch .
