Here I am writing to you and getting my luggage ready before travelling to Spain. I’m going to tell you how my last week has been, leaving me with a bad taste after the draw against Liverpool at home and John Terry’s injury.
Precisely, it was JT who scored the opener for us following a corner kick. We did try to score another goal and keep the lead, yet we couldn’t. At the end, after Luis Suárez’s goal, we got only one point, which is not what we expected. However, our captain’s injury is even worse. I hope it’s nothing serious, he is very important for us… Come on JT!
Now we have to focus on the next game, against WBA. They are on a good streak and scoring a lot of goals. Talking about goals, there have been plenty of them in la Liga this weekend. Like both of Iago Aspas for Celta at Rayo, who eventually came back to win 3-2, or Osasuna’s resounding victory at Espanyol.
And what to say about the Zaragoza-Deportivo! From 0-2 to 5-3, proving that Jiménez’s teams never give up. Later on Saturday, Málaga, the hot team in Europe, lost at home against Real Sociedad. I like some of Real’s players such as Vela, Chori, Griezmann, Xabi Prieto… They all are very skilled.
On Sunday morning, before our match, Valladolid and Valencia drew 1-1. Cissokho played a leading role in this game. First, scoring a goal for Valencia and then being sent off. It’s not a very bad result for my former team mates, considering that they played with 10 men for nearly half an hour.
After our match at Stamford Bridge, Atlético beat Getafe at Vicente Calderón and remain in a Champions League position. I was very happy for my friend Adrián scoring the first goal for Atlético. He is a phenomenal player. Later on I also followed the Levante vs Real Madrid. Real were forced to win after Barcelona’s victory at Mallorca (2-4), and so they did. I was amazed at the intensity of the match on such a rain-soaked pitch. Levante are very competitive, and this victory reinforces Real Madrid. I’m happy for Morata, who scored the deciding goal.
I’m about to finish, since I’m flying to Madrid in a while and from there to Panama with the Spanish national team. We play there next Wednesday. I will meet Panama’s manager, Dely Valdés, to whom I saw scoring plenty of goals for Real Oviedo at Carlos Tartiere when I was a kid. I take this opportunity to send all my support to the club and the fans. Congratulations for this Sunday’s victory! It’s amazing that there were nearly 20,000 people in the stadium! It’s great!
As I use to do, I leave you with another tip about London. This time Wardour Street, in Soho. Full of restaurants and pubs, this is one of the liveliest areas in London’s West End…
I’ll see you next week. Hug! :-)
PS: It was great to go to the O2 Arena and enjoy pure tennis. I was able to meet some of the players, like Ferrer and Djokovic… Since I was a kid I’ve always loved this sport!
