i find it amazing in this day and age that a game of professional football can be called off because of the weather.
The statement from both coaches was that the right decision to postpone the match was right. But they need to think of the fans. How much money would some of the Newcastle fans have paid to travel to Barcelona to watch the game? And now they have to pay for another day's expenses or go home without seeing a game.
