yea. he is real class.

sad to see him go. he was a leader in the squad.

he looks like he has the capacity to become a great manager. hopefully he return to madrid to coach.

That Christmas break is optimal for him and he can get further rest when Bayern eventually win the title in January/February. A rested Alonso is a monster, our problem was that we overplayed him and his form started falling the more games he started and that's on Carlo because he refused to sub him even when we were winning 5-0.

he was overworked, not just by ancelotti but also mourinho. there was no middle ground. he needed rest, signing a substitute type midfielder, like the club did for benzema (by signing a sub in chicharito) might have seen alonso stay, but with a kroos type signing he (xabi) probably felt he was going to be playing second fiddle rather than getting the necessary rest needed. that's how i see it

The Bundesliga is at least two steps down in quality from La Liga though so I'd take those "records" with a pinch of salt lol.

I'd still take him back in a heart beat though.

The same would probably happen at Barca. We are not a possession team hence why he didn't break passing records for us

In what universe is Xabi a traitor? lol

I don't like the way he left but he was honest and up front about it which I respect.

Plus the guy is pretty much seeing out the rest of his career by playing in a Sunday league. Let him enjoy his football.

He just left out of no where, there wasn't any rumors about it or anything.. One day he was here, the next he's gone

Alonso was an important player, but over the past year it's been hinted that he was being replaced. We got Kroos and Bayern probably promised Alonso regular playing time.

Yeah I didn't like it either but at least we parted ways on a high note.

The fact that he went to Bayern is really weird for me but we were always going to try and replace Xabi eventually. At least we have Kroos and Modric to fill in so it could have been a lot worse.

Alvaro Arbeloa: Xabi Alonso is a better person that he is a player

Post by Valkyrja on Tue Sep 27, 2016 4:25 pm

It's been 10 years since I was welcomed to Liverpool; staring, half a smile, and a firm hand. From that day to this, I knew a footballer who I've been able to discover as a real and true person, Xabi Alonso.
With him you earn more respect everyday, or in my case you have to win to earn it, and when you break that invisible wall you find a cheerful, loyal, loving, and restless character.
He has been my companion in a thousand battles, someone to count on during bad times, and to always support. These years I've enjoyed every day of our friendship and, fortunately, his incredible talent as a footballer.
If you've never seen Xabi play you can get a good idea by checking out his CV. If you've had the opportunity to play him, you've been able to test your skills against his elegant and precise strike of the ball that should be exhibited in the Museo del Prado, as he makes it look easy to put a ball at his teammates' feet from 60 yards.
You will also notice his presence, seemingly always in the right place, controlling the pace of the game at will, his mastery of the passing game, and his overwhelming ability to influence the game.
Playing besides him, you know it's all that and more.Throughout these years I've had the great privilege of playing with some of the best players in history. Undoubtedly, Xabi Alonso is one of them. But, I'm sorry, Alonso the footballer, you cannot beat my friend Xabi.

PS. In Madrid there is a great successor by the name of Casemiro. He's a unique player who is going to be very big.

Arbeloa and Xabi are top lads. Proud that they played for us.
