No Chandler for FCN's next two games
The current season has consistently gone from bad, to worse, to bordering on a Shakespearean tragedy for Nürnberg, and after last weekend's home loss to Hoffenheim dropped them down into the bottom three, they suffered another blow that will affect them well into 2012.
