so.. after a complicated transfer saga.. finally Xabi Alonso path his way to Bernabeu..
well.. nobody wouldn’t be tempted to join a team fully packed with such calibre players like Kaka’, Ronaldo, Benzema, Albiol, Sneijder, Ramos, Casillas, Robben, and many others.. i understand that it isn’t about money, but about passion for glory..
but still, it’s something i dont want to happen with the Pool’s current squad.. CMIIW, it’s already three consecutive years no silverware added to Pool’s trophy cabinet.. and every Liverpudlian watching last season’s campaign must already have big expectations in this 2009/2010 season..
so, nobody want this solid team to get raided by any other team,, unfortunately, this summer happens to be the time the free-spending Madrid put their crosshairs on Pool’s versatile full-back, Alvaro Arbeloa, and Basque deep-lying playmaker, Xabi Alonso,,
it would be no secret Arbeloa become unsettled since the arrival of 18 millions England’s first-choice right-back Glen Johnson to Anfield.. surely nobody wants to become the second in the pecking order for Pool’s right-back position.. eventhough with the out-of-nowhere injury news of Aurelio and the out-of-favor Dossena so it means that only Insua is available for the left-back position, Arbeloa’s desire to join Madrid is nearly unstoppable..
but as for the latter player Madrid targeted? he’s been very instrumental in the last season campaign.. while Gerrard focused on tormenting the enemy’s defence togother with Torres, it’s Alonso partnering with Mascherano who kept the balance in the middle of the field.. while the Argentina’s captain is gifted with quite a speed and his tenacity, Alonso is blessed with wide vision of play and wide passing range yet tremendously accurate..
and now it seem like Alberto Aquilani who will take Alonso’s place.. true, that Alonso’s play is irreplaceble for Liverpool, but the team should cover the loss, and keep improving..
nevertheless, good luck Alonso, hope we’ll meet again in the Champions League.. and off course, with Liverpool ending the match by another crowning victory :D
YOU’LL NEVER WALK ALONE
