please be patience, no help is going on
Tomorrow, the national team returns! In the meantime, here is a post to (hopefully) amuse you.
Watch a video here about PF Juan Mata’s first month in London (the video is from several weeks ago). In it, he says he’s still living in a hotel, that he’s gone out to eat a few times and that London is a great city, although the prices are higher than in Spain and he’s not used to the British meal hours (Juanín says he needs his midday snack and coffee). So far, the weather’s been good to Juanín, and he finds the roundabouts and parking confusing, since you have to get the ticket on the other side, but he doesn’t think it will take him long to adapt to the driving. As for his English, it’s “improving” (he says that word in both Spanish and English), so in this case, maybe some help is going on.
Whose English also needs improving is Iker, as we’ve seen on his Facebook posts, and David Villa as well. Last Friday, he posted this: “Hi friends! This week will be plenty of happy moments!!! We won a Champions’s important match against BATE; this weekend I return to Gijon with Barça in League; and we are already rubbing 2 million friends in facebook!!! Thanks to all for the fondness you give me!!!” I love the rubbing part; it’s just as amusing as Iker and his “not easy party” and the “hug young” and “crony” (both from the same post).
For old time’s sake, here is this classic video. It never gets old.
By the way, Pepe’s English should be better than this, after all those years of living abroad, no? “I love to see how you post me. Continue posting me, because I read you and I am very encouraged to see that you follow me.”
Also needing English lessons: David de Gea, after that donut “robbery” incident at Tesco in Altrincham. He explained to COPE earlier this week what happened: “it was an anecdote, without importance. My cousin and a friend from Spain came to visit me and we went to buy some things. We picked up the donuts and other things. I realized that I didn’t have my wallet and I went to the car to get it. They thought I was leaving without paying, I tried to explain but my English isn’t very good yet. In the end, a Spanish girl came, we came to an understanding and they ended up apologizing to us.” De Gea added that many of his teammates have given him donuts as a joke. David was interviewed by Punto Pelota on Tuesday, and they also brought him donuts, which De Gea decided to share with his best friend Iker Muniain.
David also said that he’s happy in England, that he has his mother cooking for him and that it’s a privilege, and that he follows Spanish football with his father.
Taking English lessons: Sergio Canales, who will start taking English classes and also economics classes, which he stopped doing while in Madrid. For the former, he says “it helps a lot” and for the latter, “I believe it provides you with many things.”
If any of these guys
Javi (!!!) need help in English, I’m more than happy to volunteer!
