【36】马塔周记——2013-09-16

Hi everyone!

We’re starting of one of those weeks we’ve been so used to in the last season, with two consecutive games in just a few days. And, to be honest, I believe this is the best way to move on after being defeated at Goodison Park, our first defeat in the Premier League. It’s always tough to play in that stadium; last season we were the only team that won there, but we couldn’t do the same this time. I think we had enough chances to score in the first half, yet we didn’t, and in the last minute before the break we were punished by Naismith’s goal. At the end we couldn’t tie the score and we lost. We have to learn from this defeat. Also, from a personal point of view, I can confirm that I’m feeling good after the muscular problems I’ve been suffering since pre-season…

大家好! 我们又进入了上赛季已经习以为常的密集赛程。老实说,我相信这是在古迪逊公园遭遇首次联赛失利之后继续前进的最佳方式。在那座球场里比赛总是很困难;上赛季我们是唯一在那里获胜的客队,但这次我们没能取得同样的结果。我认为上半时我们有足够的机会取得进球,但我们没有做到,接着在半场结束前的最后一分钟付出了代价,让奈史密斯打进一球。最终我们没能扳平比分,败北而归。我们必须吃一堑,长一智。另外,就个人而言,从赛季前就开始困扰我的肌肉问题解决后,我现在感觉很好…… 



As I said before, after one defeat you just want the next match to come as soon as possible, and probably the Champions League is the best way. I really want to live a night like this at Stamford Bridge. It’s a different feeling, even more since we won the title two years ago. This competition brings great memories to all of us and makes us feel really excited. Talking about good memories, our rival will be Basilea, from Switzerland, the one we played in the Europa League semifinals. I’m looking forward to play at home again and I hope we win so we can face the next Premier League game with a good taste. The next few weeks ahead are very intense: 5 games in just 14 days. In order to get ready for them is very important to get confidence and to be positive.


正如我之前所说,一仗失利之后你就想尽快进入下一场比赛,或许参加欧冠联赛就是最好的方式。我真的很想在斯坦福桥度过这样的一个夜晚。这种感觉很特别,尤其是在两年前我们赢得冠军之后。这项赛事为我们所有人带来美好的回忆,让我们满怀兴奋。说到美好的回忆,这次我们的对手是在欧联半决赛中遇到过的瑞士球队巴塞尔。我很期待再次在主场作战,希望能够取得一场胜利,接着面对下一轮英超联赛。接下来的几周任务繁重,短短14天里要打5场比赛。为了做好准备迎接这段赛程,自信和乐观的心态十分重要。


As I write this to you, I’m watching the Spanish la Liga on TV: Betis vs Valencia. The score is 3-1 and the match is about to finish… Here I send, once again, all my support to my friends in Valencia, this time to ‘Ori’ in particular. I’m sure that, with more minutes and confidence, he’s going to have a great season; I know what a good player he is, and he deserves the best: he’s been very unlucky with injuries and he is one of the best persons I’ve met in football. So a very big hug to him and to the whole team!

写这篇博文时我正在看电视上的西甲联赛,贝蒂斯对瓦伦西亚。现在比分是3-1,比赛快结束了……再次在这里向我在瓦伦西亚的朋友们表示支持,尤其是向“奥利”[罗梅乌]。我相信随着出场时间和自信心的增加,他会度过一个很棒的赛季;我知道他是个多么优秀的球员,他配得上最好的成绩:之前他非常不幸地遭遇伤病打击,而他是我在足球界遇到过最好的人之一。给他和全队送上大大的拥抱!



Now, regarding Real Madrid and Barcelona, they suffered until the end and we have to give credit to Villarreal and Sevilla for that. This is just the beginning of the season and every single team needs to get to the top of its game. Yet it seems Atlético is very close to it. They’ve won every single match so far, showing how competitive they are and the good work done behind. Like Tiago’s goal, for instance, a masterpiece in strategy. I would like to know which are the best goals of this kind that you can remember. Me, I remember one from Mendieta at Camp Nou… And also free-kicks from Le Tissier…

至于皇家马德里和巴塞罗那,他们一直苦战到最后,为此我们得对比利亚雷亚尔和塞维利亚表示肯定。赛季才刚刚开始,每支球队都需要提升至最佳状态。然而马竞看来已经十分接近目标了。他们至今战无不胜,证明了他们的竞争力之强,以及幕后所做的努力。以蒂亚戈的进球为例,这是战术上的杰作。我想知道你们记忆中这种类型的最佳进球有哪些。我记得门迭塔在诺坎普进过一个……还有勒蒂西埃的任意球…… 

When I was thinking about the recommendations to give in this post, and because this is the week it is, I just realised that I’ve never talked about Stamford Bridge, and I do believe this is a very nice place to visit in a Champions League night… I hope you have many opportunities to go there this season, it will be a good signal! 

在思考这次要推荐什么的时候,联想到这个星期的赛程,我才意识到我从没谈到过斯坦福桥,而我确实认为这是欧冠之夜值得造访的好地方……希望这赛季你们会有很多造访蓝桥的机会,这会是个积极的信号!

I also want to tell you about books: now I’m reading ‘Demian’, by Hermann Hesse. My friend Carlos recommended it to me, and I’d also like to get your suggestions before getting my next book!

另外我想和大家谈谈书籍:我正在读赫尔曼-黑塞的《德米安》,这是我的朋友卡洛斯推荐给我的。至于下一本读什么书,我想听听你们的建议! 

See you next week! A million thanks for the way you’ve welcomed again this blog! Your comments are a great support to me, I keep reading everything you write!

Hugs and have fun,
Juan
