Well, the result was a loss in PKs after a hard fought match…not desired but in the end, there has to be a winner (even the keeper got to take a PK)…pretty cool run regardless. Unfortunately, the team won’t get to defend the UEFA Youth League title but I’m glad you were able to play in important matches. I know you are sad for being unable to help out but sometimes disappointment is part of your development. Things always happen for a reason.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Now the focus shifts to the second half of the season… I’ll leave you some material below to cheer you up. Remember there’s isn’t a single activity in life that defines us. Find what makes your journey joyous and stick to it.
Meanwhile Jogo says hello from wherever he’s at this week. That little dude is having all the fun in the world.
Here we go again Johan. Different year but the same objective: win and advance to the round of 16 to defend the title from last year. Not an easy task but not an impossible one either. To be honest, it is a privilege to just be able to watch these games..the intensity, the atmosphere, the purity of play…I can’t imagine how fun it is to play them.
It’s unfortunate that you won’t be able to part take of this one due to not being 100% quite yet; however, your recovery has been going amazingly well and you are progressing faster than expected. You have always liked to beat the odds. It’s extremely encouraging that you are practicing again with the team and regaining your top form. Bueeena
We love the intensity that you show in the video below. You now belong to a great club. Enjoy each day. In the end, it’s about forming those habits and discovering what you are capable of. Keep up the good work rate and hurry back; the team really needs you. Remember, there are three things you can control: preparation, attitude, and aggressiveness/effort. As for tomorrow, let’s use all three to support the team at Olival. #DragōesJuntos #TheGomezway
The rainy, windy and cooler weather conditions did not alter the enjoyment of our first family outing watching you play with FC Porto. The game lived up to the expectations; a feisty away game against the team currently sitting in 2nd place: Famalicao. The game, the teams and especially you did not disappoint and we were glad we could witness it. FC Porto had the majority of the possession but in the end, the team who scores the goals wins. The end result was not the desired one (1-0 loss) but we move on, we learn, and we improve. Thanks for this opportunity to watch you Johan; the family could not be more proud of the young adult you are becoming….
