A Newcastle United fan collapsed with a suspected heart attack after hearing who had bought the club and how much they had paid for it. The match at St James' Park was suspended while PR men rushed to the scene to convince those in shock that everything was normal and that it is perfectly acceptable these days to receive hundreds of millions of pounds from well dodgy billionaires.
Professional conspiracy theorists earning thousands online just by suggesting bonkers stuff have pointed out that there is a connection between people who have collapsed during football matches. Crackpot theory inventor Jay Kay said, 'Remember when Christian Eriksen collapsed in that Euro 2020 match? He was playing for Denmark but was a Tottenham player at the time, Fabrice Muamba collapsed at the old Tottenham ground, and this fan collapsing at Newcastle last weekend was in a match against... you got it...Tottenham.'
'I'm not saying that Spurs are part of a shady global conspiracy behind a spate of people collapsing at football matches, but I am suggestively planting the idea so that you think there might be some truth to it. But it is definitely not true at all that the Football Association and the UK Government are now allowing any old corrupt cabal to buy Premiership football teams. That would be mad and totally unbelievable.'
