QOTD: Steven Gerrard on Xabi Alonso

Stevie in Manchester at San Carlo restaurant“Devastated, yeah. Devastated. But there was nothing I could do about it… 

Xabi said a long time ago that he wanted another chapter in his career and finally he got it and his team-mates and the coaches couldn’t stand in his way. We just have to say thanks and move forward without him.”

Liverpool’s Steven Gerrard on how it felt to see Xabi Alonso leave for Madrid this summer.

Random: Can we have a quick discussion on Steven Gerrard’s groin situ?

Coupled with the news that Fernando Torres has a hernia/groin injury as well, we’re thinking there needs to be some sort of universal healing hands offering.

For those that weren’t in the UK during the David Beckham broken foot disaster of 2002, let us fill you in.

This was serious emergency biz-nits. Tabloid newspapers actually printed photos of David’s left foot and asked the nation to pray it would heal before the World Cup started.

We did. Damn it, we prayed. We listened to psychics and all touched the telly at the same time and sent healing thoughts.

And guess what? The foot fixed in time. No, England didn’t win the WC, and the Brazil loss scarred a nation, but that’s not the point.

Should Liverpool fans be prepping a life-sized, full-colour, printable shot of Stevie and Nando’s groins, lighting some incense and having a group prayer?

It’s what we would advise.

  1. Just desire to say your article is as surprising. The clarity on your publish is simply spectacular and i could think you are knowledgeable on this subject. Fine with your permission let me to grasp your feed to keep up to date with forthcoming post. Thanks one million and please continue the enjoyable work.

    I think Stevies jacket is DSquared (favourite of the Spanish players), I have a really similar one, and mines DSquared, mne isn't shiny though, it's a matte finish :)

  3. Nurul says:

    (stevie's picture and also his comment on alonso leaving liverpool are) just too cute =p

  4. Pamela says:

    I wanna have Xabi Alonzo's baby.

  5. [...] Stevie Gerrard was devestated when Xabi left Liverpool. [Kickette] [...]

    Reading that article broke my heart… but as the ONTD girls said, if you liked it Stevie, you should’ve put a ring on it. He was hailing the possible signing of Barry two summers ago instead of supporting Xabi to stay as he didn’t look like he wanted to leave just then. I was a bit disappointed with that and maybe Xabi was too. But sadly, we can’t know what goes on in the change room, and anyway, what’s done is done.

    So sad to see Liverpool struggle like this. But I hope this is what they have to go through to resolve issues and get better. I am worried for Nando and don’t want him to risk further/long term injury by playing through pain, but he is one of the few players that keep the team alive.

      I think it was between Xabi and Rafa. It was a sweet comment but I agree that he might have left out the everyone did everything we could to make him stay bit.

      Xabi might have gone back to Spain someday but he wanted to win the League as much as any Liverpool player and loved the fans, so I don't think it would have been this season if he hadn't felt pushed by being put on the market the summer before — actually, he's said that.

      More importantly — what doorway was this most cute and flirty (am I projecting?) Stevie in, accompanied by whom, and with how many patches on his shirt?

      • Danika says:

        Thats Coleen’s brother, and they were in a restaurant in Manchester Bella.
        When Xabi insists that he loves Liverpool we can only thing that there was something at the club that didn’t suit him, Rafa comes first in mind, but we can also think at the managers in need of a lot of chash for the American owners…Gerrard was right he didn’t thought at what was Xabi for their team game!

    • lee says:

      i thought i was imagining it, but reading your comment, i do remember reading that steven welcomed barry.. i like steven, and i believe he knew the value of xabi (who we adore). it is (still) heartbreaking to read this. we suffer as fans, too. xabi was then, and still is, just being human. good luck to my teams, liverpool and real madrid! peace to everyone..

  7. KateAlonso says:

    I've heard that before and now I'm devastated that the most important players suffer injuries and Nando? a surgery? it will exclude him for couple of months from playing – very hard times for all the red fans ;(

    I may be a volunteer if they need me to massage, feed or just make them relax – call me.

  8. Redgirl says:

    Forget the praying. I'll offer myself as masseuse…

  9. michael says:

    what kind of jacket is that

  10. RedGirl (Mrs. Casill says:

    hhmmm, some praying to do… well, I guess I'll put on my liverpool shrine the groing shots and start to worship and say a little prayer =P

    p.s.: the jacket looks like it was make out of those big black plastic bags O.O

  11. Anya says:

    I like his jacket. Where Alex bought it Stevie?

  12. Julia says:

    Ok, this is getting a bit slashy!

    • Riya says:

      What’s wrong with slash? I quite enjoy it…

      “Nothing I could do about it” we know you tried your best Stevie ;)

  13. Didi says:

    We are in such a bad position lately and our captain is talking about how devastated he was when Xabi left. He should be saying something else at the moment.

  14. Kleon says:

    what's up with hernias?? seriously second player from Spain's national team that suffers one…

  15. Michaella says:
