Floodlight failure: Both teams wait on the field

Floodlight failure: Both teams wait on the field

The teams, picked only from domestic leagues, were due to meet for the second time in two weeks after Brazil won 2-1 in the first match of the "Superclasico of the Americas" doubleheader in Goiania on September 19th.

Despite only picking domestic players, both squads featured some big names including Neymar, Lucas Moura, Leandro Damio and Maxi Rodriguez.

But just as the two sides took to the field, the power went. Chilean referee Enrique Osses delayed kick-off as both sides stood waiting for half an hour.

With no back-up generator available, the decision was made to abandon the match.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
