HAPPY 2015!

Hi everyone,

This is the blog’s last entry of the year so first of all, before I forget, I would like to thank you for all your support, for your comments and for being always there, and of course, I wish you a happy 2015!

It’s been a long time since I started to talk with you through this blog… I can’t believe it, time flies! I hope you still enjoy reading it every Monday morning, same as I do when I write it. I also hope you make the most of the last few days of 2014!

We have closed the year with two games in just 48 hours and I think the team did very good against two tough opponents. Personally I felt really well on the pitch and that makes me look forward to the next stage of the season, to keep working hard so we can do even better. Against Newcastle we were the best team and we managed to prove it with nice goals to win the game.

Then on Sunday, in White Hart Lane, we created enough chances to win again but we were not very accurate so we added only one point. I think the team’s performance in the first half must be the example to follow in order to keep playing good… The important thing though is that we haven’t been defeated in the last nine games, and that gives us a lot of confidence.

Having a look at my stats in the last 12 months, I can see that I have played 32 official games in 2014 and I have scored 12 goals. It’s a good figure but obviously my aim is to have a better 2015, and I work every day for that. As you know, many things have happened during 2014 from a professional point of view, but my goal is always to become a better footballer and I will keep this way in 2015 😉

As I told you before my family is here these days, and I love that. It’s a joy and a boost of energy for me to have them here at home. They are already talking about New Year’s Eve. I will try to keep the Spanish tradition and eat the 12 grapes, even if I’m going to be in a hotel with the team ahead of the game against Stoke (not an easy one, by the way), which is something I have got used to in Christmas in the last few years… I hope we can start the New Year with a good game and a good result.

As I said last week, I have made a playlist on Spotify with songs from the 60’s and 70’s based on some of your recommendations. Thank you very much for that. I hope you like it!

Enjoy the New Year and may all your wishes come true! And the most important thing, good health for everyone!

Happy 2015! Hugs!

PS: I would like to send all my support and a big hug to all those people who are suffering or spending these days in hospitals… And I praise those who take care of them so they can have the best possible Christmas
