Two games at home to keep climbing

Hi everyone,

As I write this I’m listening to Ludovico Einaudi. I always -or nearly always- update my blog with his music playing in the background; I like it and it’s very relaxing.

It’s been a quiet Sunday following Saturday’s victory. We have had an intense training session and we also reviewed the game in London. Now we are looking forward to our next two consecutive games in Old Trafford.

This last win was very important, that’s for sure. Arsenal is a team that keeps attacking the entire game, even more when they play at home. They created good chances and it was tough, but we managed to bring the three points back to Manchester thanks to David’s great performance, Antonio’s shot that ended up in an own goal and Wayne’s clinical finish. We are fourth now and we want to keep climbing the table.

After two victories in a row all we want now is to keep this good streak. It’s not going to be easy against Hull and Stoke, but we hope to play two good games and win.

The bad news were Luke Shaw’s injury, and unfortunately we are suffering too many of them so far this season, but the most important thing is to keep winning games and wait for the team-mates to be fully fit.

I couldn’t watch much football this weekend to be honest, but talking about la Liga, Messi’s numbers are definitely worth to mention. He broke Zarra’s all-time goalscoring record in the competition. And many more goals to follow…

Thank you all for your recommendations about movies, you have good taste… 😉

I think the next classic film I’m going to watch will be ‘Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid’.

These days I’m reading the biography of a sports legend -tennis to be precise-, Andre Agassi. Are there any other biographies that you like?

Hugs to all of you, to the ones who read the blog every week and also to those who were curious to know it and came here today to have a look 😉

Have a nice week,

Juan Mata


PS: We have to praise Rayo Vallecano not only for their brave football but also for what they did to help one of their neighbours, Carmen. Congratulations.
