    A thread about a man named Xabi

    Liverpool issue denial over Alonso bid - Premier League, Football - The Independent Liverpool issue denial over Alonso bid By Paul Walker, PA Thursday, 23 July 2009 Liverpool have dismissed claims today that a fee has been agreed with Real Madrid for the sale of Xabi Alonso. Suggestions the Spanish international would not be travelling on to the second part of the club's Far East tour were also allayed by the 28-year-old's involvement today in training at Singapore's national stadium. The club insisted Alonso did not figure in yesterday's 1-1 draw with Thailand in Bangkok because of an ankle injury, although he travelled with the party to Singapore today. There have been claims in Spain that the reason for his absence from the team was down to a deal having been struck with Real and Liverpool's desire for the player not to pick up an injury. However, a Liverpool spokesman said today: "Xabi is with us in Singapore, and will train with the rest of the squad. He was injured ahead of the Thailand game, people can say what they like about that. "And there has been no deal agreed with anyone for his transfer to anyone." It has been claimed that Madrid have decided to end the summer-long saga in the face of defiance from Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez, who has intimated that he wants a fee of over £30m for the player. It has been suggested the Spanish giants are now prepared to meet the asking price for their transfer target. Alonso has made his desire to leave clear, and had hoped not to have to fly to Vienna on Sunday to meet up with the Liverpool squad ahead of the flight to the Far East. But Alonso did make the trip, and sources at Liverpool expect him to face Singapore on Sunday before the squad fly back to the UK the following day. A number of players have been linked with Liverpool if Alonso departs including Moussa Sissoko (Toulouse), Esteban Cambiasso (Inter Milan), Wesley Sneijder (Real Madrid), Alberto Aquilani (Roma) and Javi Martinez of Athletic Bilbao. There are also claims today that the refinancing package being negotiated by owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett could be delayed. The deadline for the pair's loans to be refinanced with the Royal Bank of Scotland and Wachovia is tomorrow. The club's American owners have been confident that they will get the refinancing of their original £350million loans, but negotiations could well continue beyond this week. RBS have made all the right noises about agreeing a new loan package, but there are rumours that Wachovia are not as keen.

    Steven Gerrard's Trial...

    From the Beeb The man allegedly attacked by England midfielder Steven Gerrard in a Merseyside bar has told a jury he faced a "barrage" of punches. Marcus McGee, 34, told Liverpool Crown Court he was attacked after he refused to give Mr Gerrard control of a CD player in the Lounge Inn, Southport. Mr McGee, who was initially struck by Mr Gerrard's friend John Doran, said he thought the footballer hit him first. Mr Gerrard, of Formby, Merseyside denies affray. Mr McGee lost a crown on a front tooth in the attack in the early hours of 29 December last year, the court heard. Mr Gerrard, who was in the club with friends to celebrate Liverpool's 5-1 win over Newcastle Utd, is shown on CCTV walking away before he returns several minutes later. Stereo control He said: "I remember a barrage of punches coming in at my face but I didn't know who has done what. "Having watched the CCTV it was obvious Steven Gerrard hits me a couple of times, maybe three times, but I couldn't honestly say on the night. "I didn't know who did what." Mr McGee said he was asked by the manager to be in charge of the music. Watching the CCTV footage along with the jury, Mr McGee said he had thrown no punches and was in a "nondescript" mood. Mr Gerrard was celebrating Liverpool's 5-1 win over Newcastle Being led through his evidence by prosecuting barrister David Turner QC, Mr McGee said Mr Gerrard had tried to grab a card from his hand which controlled the stereo. He said: "Mr Gerrard came to me from my left hand side and requested he wanted control of the music. "It was something to the effect of 'Here you are, lad, give me that'." He said he recognised Mr Gerrard, but did not give the card to him. "It wasn't my permission to be giving it out to somebody else, it was my job so I didn't hand it over. "He made a move to try to grab the card to take it away and I remember it slipped on the floor at one stage. "He then walked away, that was the end of it." Doran, 29, of Woodlands Road, Ian Gerrard Smith, 19, of Hilary Avenue and Paul McGrattan, 31, of Linden Drive, all Huyton, admit affray. Accrington Stanley footballers Robert Grant, 19, of Enstone Avenue, Litherland, and Ian Dunbavin, 28, of Guildford Road, Southport, have also admitted affray. John McGrattan, 34, of Rimmer Avenue, Huyton, has admitted threatening behaviour after denying affray. The trial continues.

    Has he gone yet? I'm blaming Rafa for that, and the fact me ovens just broke.

    To be fair to Stevie, the blame lies solely at Rafa's door. Can't believe no-ones pointed that out yet. Shoddy.

    I thought Barry was not going to be a direct replacement for Shabby, and that Shabby knew that. Or is that not toeing the party line?

    Liverpool Echo.co.uk - Liverpool FC - News - Xabi Alonso: I want to quit Liverpool FC for Real Madrid
  18. wanting world class players, and actually affording them are two different things completely. we are now at the stage where we only need one or two top quality signings away from being "there", whereas in the past we've had to go basement bargain shopping, and for that, we have Rafa to thank. he makes mistakes, but name me a manager who hasn't, but with Rafa, more than most, he knows when he's cocked up, and he will get rid. this thread is like playing russian roulette............so loaded.

    A thread about a man named Xabi

    http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/liverpool-f...00252-24113487/ LIVERPOOL’S hopes of holding on to Xabi Alonso have been raised after Real Madrid made a move for Italian international midfielder Daniele De Rossi. The Spanish giants have become increasingly frustrated in their ongoing bid to make Alonso their latest big money acquisition as Liverpool’s resolve to hold on to their midfield playmaker has not weakened. Rafa Benitez has repeatedly made it clear that the 27-year-old is not for sale despite Real’s remorseless public campaign – and the Reds boss is yet to show any sign he is ready to change stance. Sources in Spain today indicated that Real are “fed up” with Benitez’s refusal to bow to the demands of his former club by caving in and allowing Alonso to leave Anfield. In the face of such resistance Real are now examining their options and are ready to test the water to see if AS Roma’s desire to hold on to De Rossi is as strong as Liverpool’s determination to retain Alonso’s services. Newly installed Real president Fiorentino Perez has already snared Ronaldo, Kaka, Karim Benzema and Raul Albiol in a spending spree which has made world football sit up and take notice of the outlandish goings on at the Bernabeu but he is finding Liverpool a much tougher nut to crack than the other top clubs he has raided. The growing feeling at Anfield is that unless Real make an incredible offer for Alonso that would allow them to go on a spree of their own, the Reds would be better off keeping hold of the Spanish international even if doing so reduces their own ability to make a massive splash in the transfer market. Real sporting director Jorge Valdano has again spoken about the issue, admitting that a move for Alonso is now “further away” than ever – a revelation which will be music to the ears of the former Real Sociedad man’s legion of Anfield fans.
