New Angle of Newcastle Goal Emerges And Arsenal Fans Seething With Frustration

A new angle in the lead-up to Newcastle’s goal has emerged, leaving Arsenal fans seething with frustration.

The Magpies clinched a hard-fought victory, securing all three points at St James’ Park in a fiery encounter with the Gunners, ultimately triumphing 1-0.

The match saw tensions escalate, especially in the first half, where many supporters believed Bruno Guimaraes should have received a red card for elbowing Jorginho in the face.

Despite fervent appeals, VAR showed no interest in reviewing the incident, leaving Arsenal fans visibly upset as the half-time whistle blew.

VAR made another crucial intervention around the 60-minute mark when Anthony Gordon put Newcastle in the lead. The goal stemmed from Jacob Murphy’s snap-shot, which initially seemed destined for a goal-kick.

However, Joe Willock’s persistence on the touchline kept the move alive, leading to a cross into Joelinton. Under pressure from Gabriel Magalhaes, the ball deflected into Gordon’s path, allowing him to lash it home from close range, sending St James’ Park into a frenzy of celebration.

A protracted VAR review followed, with officials scrutinizing whether the ball had stayed in play and assessing potential fouls on Gabriel and an offside infringement by Gordon.

After an almost comically lengthy delay, referee Stuart Atwell finally signaled for the goal, prompting contrasting emotions from the fans in the stadium.

This incident has once again highlighted the controversial nature of VAR decisions, leaving Arsenal supporters aggrieved and questioning the consistency of officiating in crucial match situations.
