Xabi Alonso own-half goals for Liverpool: January 7, 2006 v. Luton Town and September 20, 2006 v. Newcastle"I love to practise it with the trainers. Many times they shout at me because I throw a lot of balls away but it is something I like and I will keep trying."
"Cause he knows I would have kicked him," - Steven Gerrard on Xabi Alonso being relieved about not playing against him Liverpool.
"Call Xabi?" "Of course, I’ll be on the phone to him."
"We had a fantastic relationship."
"Xabi Alonso definitely never got this—" (interview or arse, you decide)
"If you wanna go after somebody, you make sure that they got black eyes. Gotta know who the real monsters are in this world.”
"Moments after the draw, the phone rang. “It was Xabi and he was fuming. “Bloody hell, typical. How unlucky am I?’” The only consolation Arbeloa could offer was to tell Alonso he might get there with Bayern Munich."
