The Spurs win 3-2 at the home of the bianconeri who celebrate the purchase of the club by a very rich Saudi fund. Long suspension for an illness of a boy in the stands
Travolta, almost drowned out by the change of ownership party and by the rumors this week that Steve Bruce could be sacked and was eventually allowed to lead the team in the 1,000th presence on the bench, there was also the Newcastle-Tottenham match. and it ended as expected: 3-2 for Nuno Espirito Santo’s Spurs. The match was marked by an episode in which two Tottenham players, Reguilòn and Dier, may have saved the life of an East Stand spectator. The fan fell ill towards the end of the first half. Reguilòn caught something from the stands and signaled it to referee Marriner who interrupted the match. Dier ran to his bench and urged the Tottenham doctor to hurry to the stands with the defibrillator. Marriner first indicated a seven-minute recovery and then sent the players to the locker room. After a quarter of an hour, once the emergency was over, the race resumed and according to the information leaked on TV, the spectator was transported to the hospital and stabilized. It would be a boy. Reguilòn then told Sky UK: “The fans were yelling at us ‘stop, stop!’. I warned the referee who immediately stopped the match.”
Wilson’s 1-0 in the 2 ‘, on Manquillo’s cross, seemed the foregone event of a party that started early in the morning, with Newcastle fans walking around the city wearing kefieh and turbans. A collective hangover, in which a mobile billboard however recalled the murder of the Arab journalist Jamal Khashoggi, killed inside the consulate in Istanbul on October 2, 2018: the principals, according to investigators, are the leaders of the Saudi monarchy. The applause to the Magpies advantage of the new president, Yasir Al-Rumayyan, leader of the Arab sovereign wealth fund and the jumps for joy of Amanda Staveley, the British businesswoman who played a key role in the 350 million euro deal she closed after 14 years the era of Mike Ashley, they were broadcast worldwide by cameras, but the illusion that Newcastle could win their first league success lasted just fifteen minutes.
In fact, at 17 ‘, Ndombélé equalized, with a perfect right on Reguilòn’s serve. The 1-1 gave Tottenham confidence and in the 22nd minute, on Hojbjerg’s perfect pitch, Kane’s 2-1, on the offside edge, matured with a perfect lob. The VAR gave the ok and the English striker was able to free his joy: first center in the league. In the long recovery, Son’s 3-1, after a splendid play initiated by Lucas Moura and finished by Kane, destroyed Newcastle’s comeback hopes. Dier’s own goal, at 89 ‘, came too late to change the course of the match. Steve Bruve’s team was left in ten in the 83rd minute due to the dismissal of Shelvey, out for a double yellow card. Tottenham climb to fifth place, Newcastle remain penultimate. Bruce, defended by his son Alex in an interview that further warmed the eve, will soon be sacked, but the dreams of glory of the new property will have to come to terms with reality. Salvation, given the situation, will require a great undertaking.
