Esa mañana habrá sido como todas. El mediodía también. Y la tarde arranca, en apariencia, como tantas otras. Una pelota y veintidós tipos. Y otros millones de tipos comiéndose los codos delante de la tele, en los puntos más distantes del planeta. Pero ojo, que esa tarde es distinta. No es un partido. Mejor dicho: no es sólo un partido. Hay algo más. Hay mucha rabia, y mucho dolor, y mucha frustración acumuladas en todos esos tipos que miran la tele. Son emociones que no nacieron por el fútbol. Nacieron en otro lado. En un sitio mucho más terrible, mucho más hostil, mucho más irrevocable. Pero a nosotros, a los de acá, no nos cabe otra que contestar en una cancha, porque no tenemos otro sitio, porque somos pocos, porque estamos solos, porque somos pobres. Pero ahí está la cancha, el fútbol, y son ellos o nosotros. Y si somos nosotros el dolor no va a desaparecer, ni la humillación ha de terminarse. Pero si son ellos. Ay, si son ellos. Si son ellos la humillación va a ser todavía más grande, más dolorosa, más intolerable. Vamos a tener que quedarnos mirándonos las caras, diciéndonos en silencio «te das cuenta, ni siquiera aquí, ni siquiera esto se nos dio a nosotros».

Así que están ahí los tipos. Los once nuestros y los once de ellos. Es fútbol, pero es mucho más que fútbol. Porque cuatro años es muy poco tiempo como para que te amaine el dolor y se te apacigüe la rabia. Por eso no es sólo fútbol.

Y con semejantes antecedentes de tarde borrascosa, con semejante prólogo de tragedia, va este tipo y se cuelga para siempre del cielo de los nuestros. Porque se planta enfrente de los contrarios y los humilla. Porque los roba. Porque delante de sus ojos los afana. Y aunque sea les devuelve ese afano por el otro, por el más grande, por el infinitamente más enorme y ultrajante. Porque aunque nada cambie allá están ellos, en sus casas y en sus calles, en sus pubs, queriéndose comer las pantallas de pura rabia, de pura impotencia de que el tipo salga corriendo mirando de reojito al árbitro que se compra el paquete y marca el medio.

It's one of the best articles about football I've ever read.
Was trying to find an English version but them I figured how ridiculous it would be... Doubt it was ever translated to English

Post here for the Spanish/Portuguese speaking people anyway

I'm not asking for a summary, but what's the conclusion?

It's about Maradona goals against England in the 86 WC, from the pov of and Argentine. Part of it is kind of a moral discussion, though it's a bit pointless, it's the narrative about the goals and his meaning that is really nice here.

U know wot pisses me off abt that 'HoG' goal? Is that nobody talks abt the beautiful build-up play that led to the goal! Its just as pleasing to the eye as his 2nd goal.

Recent Messi nutmegs reminded me of these:





Great channel btw, with rare footage from his Argentinos Juniors days. I recommend the Skills #3 vid in particular: 3 mins of sombreros and another 3 mins of roll over fakes (Idk what it's actually called in English... just watch it!)

Jammin you're an absolute LEGEND for sharing these.

This is GOLD

Once again.... a big big thank you.

Somebody just posted a pic of Diego in a football group.... within 10 minutes the comments were flowing in against him from old englishmen who still feel bitter. Quality admins as they banned 4 of em straightaway lol.

This is what Diego had to put up with.



Nevermind eh... revenge was sweet in 86... and even sweeter in 1990
