The missus and daughters at Watford. Medical staff giving CPR to someone in the crowd. They are not saying anything on the broadcast. Players will be back out soon.

Some of the goal celebrations were a bit ****ing OTT weren't they.

Like the equivalent of a fully grown adult beating a 2 year old in a boxing match and then standing on the ropes cupping their ears and holding up a flag.
It may well be that the players do their ‘celebrating’ away from the pitch if the pictures I’ve been sent on WhatsApp are anything to go by. 😳😳😳😱😱

Good ol mainstream media doing a fine job of sweeping this under the carpet. I've been watching football for near 50 years and not seen anything like what I'm seeing this season. How many games now, across teh league and Europe that players and/or fans have required emergency assistance.

Are people too scared to discuss this openly ??

We don't know anything about the individuals or the circumstances, so we have nothing to discuss other than wish those individuals a speedy recovery.

People collapse all the time, for all manner of reasons, I collapsed at a rugby match once, everyone assumed alcohol but I hadn't touched a drop, it was exhaustion at the end of a dissertation submission. Not necessarily a conspiracy in every ailment.

Plenty of people are asking the same question and thats off the back of not having seen matches stopped due to medical interventions to players and/or fans as regularly as we've seen this season and that is fact.

But if we want to simply throw the word Conspiracy in than that's rather lazy..

The point is, we don’t know anything about the circumstances so there is nothing to discuss.

FWIW someone was taken ill a few rows in front of me at a match a few years ago and required medical attention, the game wasn’t stopped. My feeling is that stopping the games is a recent development, not the fact that someone falls ill.

To be honest, the way that you are implying nefarious circumstances, and the way that social media is these days, the word conspiracy seems apt. The explanation is likely ‘ordinary’ and unfortunate, but that won’t satisfy some people.

Not sure Gaz, I don't ever recall these events happening so regularly during a single season and certainly not across so many league.

Sure you would agree..

I wasn't impressed with their goal celebrations either, watching them giving it large. I bet Kane wish he could have played to up his goal scoring stats. And they call it sport.

My Brentford bod office mates told me that they were sent on a long (& apparently enjoyable) course for dealing with suspect cardiac arrests and the like before the season started, as did all clubs. Partly he reckons because of the Euros and what happened there.

So basically health and safety has been upgraded.

Yep, the actual team's medical staff seem to be more involved now also, so naturally the games are paused.
