The beautiful game
I'm getting sic talking about the way are playing the game, an probability you too, believe me it's not BEAUTIFUL.
Lets concentrate in doing it, the right way... But I already said IT!!
Who am I, to tell HOW the game have to be played?....If I tell you, that I was nobody, that was the worse player in my neighborhood, but, I had GUTS!, never back up for nobody, or anything, That help me in life tremendously. Today, everything I own, is thank to my integrity, courage, honesty, or, whatever you want to call it. But no FEAR, or if onetime I felt the FEAR, I kick it to the side, and, KEEP GOING straight up!, Can be one of the reasons I do not hold any licenses (driver, YES!), I always said, WHO will teach me how to play the game?
If I learned it, with the best ones that played the BEAUTIFUL game!! I'll tell you just one (for now), My good friend Hector (Sapito--Little toad) Martinez, we played a few times together,but, when he was playing for Penarol on the Liberator's Cup, has to play against Brazil,- Santos' PELE, before the game began, "Sapito" told PELE, "Hey Pele, I'll pass the ball in between yours legs" Pele smiled, for the positions they played, just meet once in the whole game, in that particular play, Sapito got the ball, faced Pele, and with a fancy feet move, tried to pass the ball in between Pele's legs, instinctively Pele closed his feet, and the ball did not go through. I imagine Pele smiling, I never could confirm this history, never have the chance to ask Pele. But knowing Sapito, it cold happen!! he was FANTASTIC!! Players like him were all over, he played with a Pele's team mate MOASIR, they usually, in the practices, kicking the ball, will bet, where the ball hit! (for a glass of wine!), I would like, that somebody check in his records and fine out how many goals he MADE from corners kicks!!!, free kicks! you named!!, but IN THAT YEARS, they were so many good players, and, not transfers to other countries, like today!! I don't want to say they were better than today's players, not, was not chances to play, not openings. Look at Pele's record, he just played for Santos, -yes, I know the NY Cosmos, but, that is another history!!-
Like I said, FEAR, it was not in our dictionary, I don't want to say, today's it!, but, just look a couple examples. No, better I shut my mouth!!, but in the game, that line of four (4) THAT IS FEAR!!. Only two (2) attackers, THAT'S FEAR!!!. The team is defending a corner kick, get 8 players inside the box, and the start to hold by the jerseys, the arms, even they get in touch with body parts!!! THIS IS FEAR!! Plus is RIDICULOUS!!! Is ONLY ONE (1) BALL!!! And sometimes it goes out of bound!!!
I can go no and on, for days, but, nobody listen, again FEAR of change something, that is not working, BUT, what if?, better give the ball back to the goalie!,

First I have to THANK my buddy ACE!! Again and again, because without his knowledge and patience I could not do this!
Because I didn't have many responses on the couple years this blog is running, I thought people didn't care, and the truth is I lose my enthusiasm. And now by POPULAR DEMAND (ACE) I'll start to write in my broken English, and in my natural language Spanish see if I can touch base! before I hung up my cleats!!!
According with the request and/or questions, would be the life of this blog!
I don't want to look critical, but, lets check the last MLS Final game.
What I was talking about it, in past posts, came to be the real truth!!
The "Revolving Door" Yes, coaches are fire for inept from one Club, and, another Club HIRE them!!!" Old Players" turned coaches- do not know better that toss the ball in the air (High as they can) and RUN for it!! "Players may get hurt" In this particular game also happen it! Two players got hurt! running for that loose ball! "The luckiest one will WIN" exactly, is what happen, both teams, during the season, were lousiest, do not tell me the best team won! No Sir, the LUCKIEST WON! The funniest thing is, the winning coach told me couple years ago, (by emails) the "I was insulting him, WHY, he would take my advise", I tried to explain him, then that is one of the beauty of this game, that you can criticise constructively, and believe or not he won the 2009 Cup! "Too many people in the box, and blind the goalie" Exactly what happens in one of the goals, guys running "in line" watching ONE attacker with the ball. That defenders should pay entrance , because they got the best seat in the Stadium!! The other goal, almost the same scene, but this time the "STAR ( I said "FIASCO") in front of the attacker, but, turned his body and jump like a butterfly, again, the goalie would not expected that move and did not see the ball!
Next Post I would like to say something about the slogan some WEB PAGES ARE RUNNING, they write the "BEAUTIFUL GAME" (They don't have idea what it means)
