Stop Xabi Alonso; Stop Liverpool

Almost every homo sapien on earth believes that Steve Gerrard is the best thing to have come out of Liverpool since the Beatles. I'd agree to a point. He is mustard. The second best player England have. After Theo Walcott of course.

Luckily for Arsenal, unluckily for Liverpool I've heard a sick rumour he won't be playing tomorrow. However, in my opinion he wouldn't have been the biggest threat that Arsenal faced anyway. Nor would Torres have been/will be.

The danger man we must nullify, in my humble opinion, is Xabi Alonso. The third best Spanish player in the world after Cesc Fabregas and Manuel Almunia of course. The geezer is amazing. A footballer I would watch all day long.

I'm sure each campaign the Premiership committee/panel pick a player of the season. If I was in that committee/panel I would vote for Alonso. He has been immense for Liverpool this season despite being treated like some spat out paella by Rafael Benitez last summer.

Allegedly, Arsenal could have signed Alonso but refused to budge on their offer for the Spaniard. Liverpool wanted £16,000,001, Arsenal went as far as £16,000,000 and Arsene Wenger went mental. Apparently there was pizza everywhere.

It would have been great to see Alonso lining up at Anfield in an Arsenal shirt tomorrow. Instead we have to stop him pulling the strings for Liverpool. He is key to them, starting most of their attacks.

The key battle is who gets control of the midfield. Fabregas or Alonso. It will be like a bull fight. To the end. Fabregas V Alonso. Shame. It could have been Fabregas and Alonso. Never mind.

Keep it Goonerish.................

Alonso is class, love his long shots, type of player we need
Now Villa are missing out on Champs League, will Liverpool go after Barry? Will that unsettle Alonso allowing us to get him? Or should we go straight for Barry?
I would take either, experience alongside Cesc in the centre will be a massive plus for us.

No, don't focus on stopping anyone, we should just play our own game.

At saturday, Wenger thougt about stopping Chelsea to play, look where that got us!!

im not sure alonso will be the biggest threat tomorrow. i am sure song and fab will keep him relatively quiet. i am a little more concern about the tussle between torres and silvestre. not sure if silvestre has enough pace, quick thinking, agility to deal with torres. lets hope we won't be punish for every half decent chances liverpool get.

If his tightfistedness had used common sense we would have bought Alonso in the summer and bar injury which seem to hit every Arsenal player available we would look at a different kind of season.

Alonso is not the "type" of player we should be after. Song is much more suited to partnering Fabregas, even Denilson has performed better in the "DM" role, Alonso is to a midfield what bergkamp was to a strike force. He was not a gopalscorer, but he was not an attacking midfielder, somewhere in between, Alonso is the same in midfield, always needs a DM in behind him like Mascherano, Hamann or Senna

i know how you feel wrighty even if they arent the most suited players i think hes class and when we hear how we were close to signing him its painful. he couldve really helped when cesc was injured. oh well i just hope arsene knows best and song will turn out better than him. :)

If he was in an Arsenal Shirt then the season might have been different for us.

Eduardo coming back should be the difference banging in 5 goals from 5 attempts lol
