Friends Of Liverpool

Latest news is that Xabi Alonso is to be sold in the summer to wealthy Manchester City for 18 million!
According to Chris Bascombe in the News of the World, Alonso is to be sold to City to raise the money to finally bring Gareth Barry to Anfield.
I, for one, would be appalled if this were to happen as I think the Spanish play-maker has been instrumental to Liverpool’s title challenge this season.
He is the fulcrum of every Liverpool attack, spraying the ball from one end of the pitch to the other, always finding a team-mate in a good position.
Anytime I have ever watched Aston Villa play this season, I have struggled to notice Gareth Barry in the team.
He doesn’t get on the ball or dominate teams often enough for me.
I would buy him as a left-sided midfielder who could act as cover for Mascherano or Alonso, but not as a replacement for Xabi.
I hope the papers have got it wrong and Alonso stays at Liverpool.
