      Goodbye Xabi farewell, your class is evident for all too see, IMO Madrid got a steal considering you have got your best years ahead of you for the next 4-5 seasons.

      What the f**k was Perez thinking trying to haggle for you.

      That was the same for me. :( We're gonna miss him, not just as a player but as a character and a part of our club, something he doesn't seem to have understood in his haste to get away.

      Alonso passes Real medical
      Midfielder on brink of finalising move from Liverpool

      A fee was agreed between the two clubs on Tuesday evening, with Real expected to pay in the region of £30million for the former Real Sociedad man.

      Real have spent much of the summer trying to conclude a deal for Alonso, who outlined his desire to leave Anfield last month by handing in a transfer request.

      He is now close to finalising his move to the Santiago Bernabeu after passing a medical and holding talks over personal terms.


      Alonso is expected to become Real's final signing of a hectic summer which has seen the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka and Karim Benzema arrive in the Spanish capital.

      The club will now focus on selling players on the fringes of Manuel Pellegrini's team, with Klaas Jan Huntelaar expected to lead the departures.

      So I guess that's it.  It's good bye to Xabi Alonso.  It's actually sunk in and I'm quite speechless.  :(

      Know the feeling.

      Onwards and upwards, as they say. It's all downhill after Liverpool.

      On SSN there was footage of him lying on the medical table with his thumb up.  I think he'll do well at Madrid, but if he doesn't or has an average season, & for some reason Real consider selling him, I'd be all for bringing him back.

      After all, Rush came back after one season at Juventus.  It's happened before.

      Just like Owen when a main player leaves we go on to bigger and better things (winning champion's league) maybe this year when Alonso is in Spain on the bench Gerrard will be on a platform lifting number 19 ;D.

      Would be icing on the cake to win number 6 at the Bernabeu as well ;)

      Like your thinking i think we can reach the final this year just hoping its not at the expense of number 19. I think playing for Real Madrid will dent Alonso's world cup chances as he wont be getting as many games as he would have with us i can see Fabregas overtaking him this year.

      Yeah, Real Madrid have a big problem keeping all their players happy. I think they've got too many players and have only sold Javier Saviola so far. I was thinking more of a treble season ;)

      If I was playing the Playstation or PC, I'd put some money in for Xavi Hernandez, ;D but that's just plain mean. It's like taking Steven Gerrard out of Liverpool.

      At the moment, Alberto Aquilani seems to be the best but I'm not sure if he can adjust to the demands of the Premier League. I also think Stephen Ireland is pretty good as he's young.

      Then I can't name anyone who I think will be a pretty good replacement as the other names may just be good in their leagues and are unproven in the Premier League.

      It will help his chances. Like in England playing for a top 4 side, in Spain playing for either Barca or Real will big help and I don't get where you think he will play less, Real went after him for months, paid over the odds for him, he will be in the starting XI week in week out.
