First Post: A China Fan [A letter to Torres]


Recommended Posts

Hello, I am a fan from China. This is my first post. My pastime is watching Chelsea games and translating english news into chinese for my country people. I also like to write original stuff. This is one of my articles.

I did include the chinese because it was part of the forum. Enjoy!

对阵星队进球后
一位切尔西球迷

Torres, you were my worst dreams.
Everytime I saw you streaking down the Stamford Bridge with the ball, I would roll my eyes.
Here we go again.

It was not because you could not score, it was because you could.
Yes, you were still with Liverpool. You were unstoppable. One famous reporter said: You give Torres half a chance, and he is gonna make you pay.

You receive. You dribble. You cut. You crossover. You act as if the goalie was not there.

That year, it was all I heard.
"And it's Torres with the ball...... Must be! And Torres puts it in the net!"
"Torres surrounded...... Does not matter! He slides it pass the keeper with four defenders hanging on him! Oh, Great goal for Liverpool!

托雷斯,你是我的梦魇。
每当我看到你拿球冲刺在斯坦福桥的草皮上,我的心里就一阵刀刮。
千万别进啊!

不,那时候我不是因为你不能进球而揪心,而是因为你太能进球了。
你在利物浦所向披靡。一位评论员曾经说到:这就是托雷斯,你给他半个机会他就能进!

你接球。带球。变相。过人。你视门将如无物。在你面前,他们是那么渺小。

曾经,你的进球充斥我的耳畔。
“托雷斯!托雷斯拿球!好机会!绝佳机会!没错!进了进了!托雷斯进球了!”
“托雷斯被包围。。。。。。那又怎么样!太美妙了,四个防守球员包夹下,托雷斯的射门划过门将,利物浦一比零!”

You were so good, it scared me.
Every touch of yours seemed like magic. Every run a piercing dagger to the heart. Every time you got the ball I shivered, because I knew what you were going to do next.

That's the scary part. Everyone knew what you were going to do next. The defenders knew it, the goalie knew it, the fans knew it.

But nobody could stop it.

Oh, everyone in the stadium could tell that you would cut and cut again, then put the ball in the far side corner. Did it matter? Not really.

你真的很强,令人敬畏。
每次出球都充满了魔力,每个跑位都像尖刀一样刺向球队深处,每一次拿球,都令人毛骨悚然,因为我们都知道你要做什么。

最可怕的就是,我们都知道你要做什么。防守球员知道,门将知道,球迷也知道。

但是没人挡得住。

所有人都知道你会左切,右切,然后把球送入远角。知道有用么?没用。

I do not think, to this day, that you were overrated to the price tag of 50 millionpounds.

You were not afraid of anyone. You would stand with anyone face to face, holding your ground, with "Bite ME!!!!" written all over your face.

You were truly unique. You were one of a kind.

我觉得你值五千万。真的。

你谁都不会惧怕。你可以和任何世界级球星对峙,脸上写满了“有种你就过来动我”。

你很独特。你是唯一的托雷斯。



Torres, I wish you were back.

I wish you were back, because I love seeing you happy. And yes, I will say this outloud. I think that you are such a character, I would like to see you score anywhere, anyplace, against any team. I love seeing your goals. I did not appreciate them when they were all over the place; now that they are getting rare, I miss them more and more.

托雷斯,我真希望你回归状态。

这不仅仅是出于对切尔西的热爱,同样是出于个人喜好。我喜欢你进球的方式。你是那么开心,那么欢欣,我何时何地都喜欢看你的进球。以前看你的进球感觉没什么,因为你的进球遍地都是。物以稀为贵,你的进球越来越稀少。

Torres, thanks for the present on March 15th.

I saw the old Torres back again. Not just the goal, the goal was essential, and I know it. I'm talking about stance. The way you play. Your magnetic field. Your Charisma. It's back.

托雷斯,谢谢你在3.15的礼物。不只是进球,进球很重要,大家都知道。我说的是身体语言。你踢球的方式。你的磁场。你的魅力。我看到了以前的托雷斯。

I know the big money that Chelsea can offer you is luring. It's hard to turn down. And yet, I think that you and Chelsea really are not the best fit.

I say this because I am a Chelsea fan, and I must think for my team. But also, I love your goals.

我知道切尔西能提供的薪水很诱人。真的很诱人。但是。我觉得你和切尔西这桩婚姻真的有点不合适,就好像婆婆和新媳妇一样,你们总是在冲突。

我这么说是因为我是切尔西球迷,我必须为我的球队照想,但是,我很喜欢你的进球。

Torres, what if you left Chelsea? Do you still have enough passion in the game to give up millions of pounds, and turn them into goals?

I know that you are no longer young, and I wish I could believe that this performance was your encore. But no, I view this more as a goodbye performance, a last bow before the curtains are drawn, the last piece of a great artist, the final key of a mocking bird.

托雷斯,你若是离开了切尔西会怎样?你是否还有当年的热血,能拒绝接下来的千万英镑,为了你对足球的热爱?

我知道你已不在年轻,矫健的身姿已不能象从前那样飞奔。我真心希望对阵星队是你的安可,也就是复出表演。很可惜,在这次演出中,嗅到了绝唱的味道。就像一个演出,拉帘前的最后一躬。就像一个伟大的画家的最后一幅画。就像百灵鸟的最后一个音符。

I saw a goodbye call of a great baller. I saw the tears that hid behind your eyes. I sensed the sadness behind your elation.

Are you saying goodbye?

我似乎看到了一个伟大球员的谢幕,我看到了你藏在背后的眼泪,我觉察到了你藏在庆祝里的悲伤。

你在和我们告别么?

I wish you would be back like this every game, but I have wished that before.

I wish you could score at will every time, but I have wished that before.

I wish you were still 22.

我希望你此后每场比赛都能这样,但是我以前这么祈愿,你却总是放我鸽子。

我希望你能能够这里开始进球如麻,但是我以前这么祈愿,你却置若罔闻。

我真希望你仍然是22岁的少年。

Torres, you are over the peak.
You did not stop when you met the very top, and now, you face your very own scary drop. Because what goes up, must come down.
Torres, I wish you would leave Chelsea. Not only for Chelsea, but more for you. Yousill have some years in you, to find the peak again. Believe it or not, it is there.


Just, not at Chelsea.

托雷斯,你早已过了巅峰。
你在巅峰的时候不知足,还想要更多。于是,你得到了史上最大的前锋下滑之一。因为升上去的东西,总是要坠下来的
托雷斯,我希望你离开切尔西。不只是为了切尔西,更多是为了你。你身体里还有余力。相信我,你还有新的巅峰。巅峰就在那里,只是你敢不敢攀爬的问题而已。


只不过,巅峰不在切尔西。



The ****ing stupid thing is, after all this shit,

There is still a small voice in my mind, piping:


Torres! Torres! Bloom at Chelsea!

可是,最****的事情是,就有这么多的失望,这么多的伤心,

我的心里仍然有个微小的声音:

在切尔西重新雄起吧!托雷斯!!!!!!








But of course, the choice is your own.

但是最终的决定,还是要有你来做。

献给托雷斯














Maybe one Sunday afternoon, my grandsons will gather round me.
They will see the pictures that I am holding up.
"Grandpa, who is that person in the red shirt?"
"Torres....... Fernando Torres. Ah, so many memories."
"Wow, was he good?"
"The best."
"Did you see him grow?"
I pause and say.
"Even better.



I witnessed his downfall."


也许在未来,某个惬意的星期日,我的孙子会在我的膝下团聚。
他们会注意到我看的照片。
“爷爷,穿红衣服的,那是谁?”
“托雷斯。呵呵,好多回忆啊。”
“他很厉害么?”
“很厉害。”
“你见证他的成名么?”
我会微微一顿
“不,但是。。。。。。



我见证了他的陨落。”

Bless you Torres.

Bless Chelsea too.


祝福你,托雷斯

祝福你,切尔西

Hahaha, shut up!

I bet you were a fucking virgin philosopher at my age! :Goober:

Ow my .... I was actually pretty active (had had two serious girlfriends - one since 15 and new one on 17 that stuck with me until 22 - after that I was Casanova, man!) :-)

Ps: If you are a nice lad I will let you into a secret :-)
