We won’t be seeing those long, searching passes delivered with such speed and accuracy.
We will sorely miss your half-way line attemps, where you have also managed to score a few.
We will not be able to mock Michael Carrick as ‘the poor man’s Alonso’ anymore.
Without you, other teams wouldn’t end up with 10-men.
You’ll be wearing a different color soon, but to us, you’re still a Red.
There’s only one, Xabi Alonso.
Thanks for the memories.
