“Eric Dier is an absolute legend” Despite poor defending and an own goal Dier highly praised
By Bruce Grove -

Eric Dier is one of the players that a lot of Spurs fans wish would never put on a Tottenham shirt again but there is no doubt that the man was a hero yesterday, alongside Sergio Reguilon.

Dier and Reguilon were named joint man of the match but it was not for footballing reasons, certainly not in the case of the Englishman, who was rather poor with his defensive efforts that culminated with an own goal.

The Tottenham duo was instrumental in seeking out medical attention for a fan that had collapsed in the stands.

Reguilon was the first to notice that there was something going on with the fans frantically calling for help for the stricken person, the Spaniard then approached the referee Andre Marriner to inform him that something was amiss.

Dier did not wait on the referee to take action and instead sprinted over to the sidelines to urge the Newcastle medical team to go to the aid of the fan, which they duly did.

Their actions may have saved the fans life as Newcastle has confirmed that he is now stable in hospital.

Fans, pundits and journalists were all full of praise for the Tottenham pair with one calling Dier a legend.

This is not the time to call out Dier for his footballing performance but instead to applaud him as a decent good man, the same applies to Reguilon and both of them did Tottenham proud yesterday.

Also, the ref should not be forgotten in all this, he handled the situation like a pro and if there is one thing English refs are good at, it is remaining calm in a crisis.

I dont get it, they dont have cpr trained staff or coppers in the stands? No EMTs on standby, the players on the pitch have to attend to the medical emergencey?

Jesus wept, the outpourings of these vicarious grief junkies are endless.

How soon will there be shops selling photographs of people crying? They’ll be a queue 6 deep going round the block.

Look, this is just common humanity they displayed. It’s happened before. At the Carling Cup final of 2007, Abou Diaby inadvertently kicked John Terry in the head and he swallowed his tongue. Gary Lewin, the Arsenal physio, raced on as the players of both sides waved frantically, he sorted out Terry’s airway and the player was taken for medical attention and recovered fully.

No player on either team that day cared the colour of John Terry’s shirt. They just cared that a fellow human being didn’t die…..

I had high hopes for Dier and he’s obviously a thoroughly decent lad, however this was the only good thing he did on Sunday…
