QOTD: Steven Gerrard on Xabi Alonso
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.
