The travelling Palace supporters wave for the camera.

Landon Donovan and his Galaxy team-mates.
Introductions and national anthems (this time, they did find a recording of God Save the Queen to play!)
Paul Nagamura equalizes for the Galaxy beating Palace goalie Julian Speroni low.
Danny Butterfield intercepting for Palace.
The wind starts to pick up as the rain starts to fall at the beginning of half-time.
Many of the fans braved it, hoping the rain would subside (while some of us, especially the ones with expensive camera gear, took shelter under the unused coroporate hospitality tent!).
The wind was gusting strongly now as the thunder and lightning got closer.
Once the heavens opened and the lightning started striking all around, even the diehard travelling fans, like Colonel Britain, took advantage of the tent.
Chas enjoying the rain.
Absolutely chucking it down.
At this point, the game had been abandoned. Palace fans just now wondering how long until they can safely make a dash to the car park.
Michael, Paul, Chas and other unidentified Palace fans sheltering under the tent.
