This is depressing, but, he has given us 5 years of excellent service, and if he fancies a change, who are we to stand in his way? YNWA Xabi (ever) I don’t understand too! They value Xabi so lowly, he shouldn’t go! I am hoping that there are just rumours. Still delusional :( I’m absolutely gutted. But I expected it with all the recent talk about replacement targets. He won’t be as appreciated in Madrid as he is in Liverpool. Bye! And there we were in Singapore, cheering and roaring every time Xabi touched the ball. I’m sad if he goes, but we must soldier on. YNWA Xabi. You will never be appreciated and loved the way you were at ANFIELD!!! It is sad news for us all alright, but we’re a lot more that just a one man team. It might give the other lads a chance to step up to the plate and make a name for themselves. I’m not up to date on who the best replacements would be, but I’m sure that Rafa will have a few lads already lined up and Im beginning to trust in Rafa’s transfer dealings a lot more. It was clear he never wanted Keane (sorry fello countryman), and I think the stand he made with him will reap benefits in the long term. Thanks a million Xabi, all the best at Real and be carefull in the showers with that shirt-lifter Ronaldo lurking in the back-ground. “… You’ll never walk alone my friend” Ha! i knew the fans in Singapore didn’t move him like all the reports and rafa said. impossible. Mrs. Alonso must have a say in this decision though. i dont blame him the gareth barry thing i think hurt him,rafa made a mistake,ihope he stays but wish him the best of luck great player :| dang it…oh well xabi…you always got liverpool if that portugese idiot drives you mad…our midfeild will miss you. and one more thing.. i would like to see real get their butts kicked by liverpool again… I think Alonso should see sense. We thumped Real Madrid 5-0 last year (agg) and now he wants to go them. Ronaldo, Kaka and Benzema may be good but they are not miracle workers. Stay Xabi STAY!!!!!!!!!!!!1 Real Madrid are full of mercenaries. The way Perez talks you’d think they have a devine right over every player. The truth is that Xabi should have handed in a request ages ago…not two weeks before the start of the season.
