Damn, the football audience is collapsing again

Damn, the football audience is collapsing again

The Premier League match between Tottenham and Watford has been stopped by a medical emergency in the crowd? weeks after a match between the Hornets and Chelsea was interrupted by a spectator who suffered a cardiac arrest.

In scenes that were almost unparalleled before this season, a Premier League match has been canceled for the fourth time in a few months due to a supporter suddenly becoming ill in the stands.

The worrying development, which caused Tottenham’s trip to Watford in the top class to be suspended on Saturday, bears the eerie echoes of three other emergencies that have taken place during the ongoing campaign in England.

When Spurs traveled to Newcastle on October 17, the nearby presence of another fan who was an accident and emergency doctor proved to be a heroic benefit as a tipper who suffered a cardiac arrest was rescued.

On December 2, Watford’s Vicarage Road home witnessed another outrageous break that lasted 30 minutes after a person was treated for a cardiac arrest and taken away.

The affected supporter at the time was later said to have been in a “good mood” – although there was more concern that evening when a fan also needed to be taken care of during Southampton’s match against Leicester.

There has been no immediate update on the latest person to become ill, although they are said to have been applauded when they were removed from the stadium.

Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso alerted doctors to the situation in the stands during his team’s settlement on Vicarage Road.

Physicists from both teams are said to have rushed to the supporter’s aid when a second medical problem arose at the stadium near London on New Year’s Day.

Football has been plagued by heart-related health incidents during the 2020/21 term.

The most notable came when Christian Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch during Denmark’s meeting with Finland at the European Championships 2020 in June.

Premier League legend Sergio Aguero was forced to retire due to a heart problem that was discovered after he had to leave the pitch when he played for Barcelona in October.

Among many other examples of the disturbing pattern, Sweden’s defender Victor Lindelof left Manchester United’s match against Norwich in December prematurely when he suffered a heart attack.

An eight-minute extension was added due to the second suspension which was to take place in Watford.

Tottenham scored the only goal of the match when Davinson Sanchez broke through in the 96th minute.
