"If he did come to us this Jan, has he already played enough CL group games to earn a winners medal if they go on to win it, or would he also have to have played some of the knock out games? They can have Sahin back to balance the wage books!"

"Xabi returning would be the best signing ever also I don't know if you guys agree but I reckon its worth us recalling Carroll from his loan spell at west ham and selling him back to Newcastle in a swap deal plus cash for Pa Demba Cisse.We don't need Tom Ince and 6 million its far to much we already have Assaidi,Downing,Sterling and Suso who are wingers we don't need any more. YNWA"

"Ramesh13, its not a question of not wanting Xabi back, its that i can't see him coming back, his heart is still at the club he comes over now and then to watch matches, but thats where I see him a great player from the past still supporting Liverpool as a few can learn from on here."

"A recent picture was tweeted by a member of his family, of 2 kids together in Gerrard and Alonso shirts! I think it's gonna happen. Can you just imagine how many goals Suarez would get with Alonso feeding him through! "BRING XABI BACK" banners at the next game!!!"

"Would love to have him back...but I doubt the LFC brains trust would have him back...not British!"
Amerigo
9th Jan 2013 15:34
"Do whatever you can to get him. In the role he plays, he could still be playing great football at 35+, as he's a tremendous passer and not a box to box midfielder like Gerrard. Hopefully he'd consider a move when his contract is up... we'd instantly be favorites for the top four and be challenging both Manchester clubs. Things are looking up!"

"Xabi knows that he would be always welcome at Anfield and think that had Nuri Sahin leave it would open the door to a possible new arrival in midfield, a defensive midfelder or a attacking midfielder or even both, so why not hope?"

"I would love to see Xabi back in the Liverpool midfield, its madness how Rafa favored Gareth Barry over him, but sadly i dont believe it will happen, Brendan is very stubborn when it comes to players over 28 apart from club legends like Carra and Stevie. Also would like to point out about Assaidi, its very disappointing not seeing him in the match squad...very tidy player "

"I'm not in favour of bringing players back to Anfield because we have to move forward with a new young team but Alonso is the exception to that rule. He's still only 31 and clearly one of the best midfielders in the world. We should do all we can to bring him back to LFC. Alonso is world class and we should never have sold him in the first place. Xabi never called LFC a small club. He loves LFC."

"that is the past men. look forward. I would like to see him with a red shirt but not now too late for him. If Xabi is come back he will be on the bench to give advice to young player and play our game against west ham norwich... not serious to our future..."

"Not doubting he would add to our team and he is an absolute legend in our eyes and hearts but i just feel we need to stick to our guns and think of the future, get another couple of young midfilders in and give them a few years to gel and we will be a real force again ynwa"

"Well fans who know a great footballer when they see one would love him back."
9th Jan 2013 19:00
"He is the one player I want back at the club, more so now then ever. That's due to his experience & technical ability in the style we want to play and would be great for players like Allen and Hendo to learn from."

"I HAVE TO TOTALLY DISAGREE WITH LFC73. XABI ALONSO IS AN LFC LEGEND AND THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT HE'D STILL DO A FANTASTIC JOB AT ANFIELD. HE'D BE WELCOMED WITH OPEN ARMS BY THE VAST MAJORITY DESPITE HIS AGE."
JACKHIGH
9th Jan 2013 19:07
"SPECTATORS WOULD LOVE TO WATCH A SUPERB PLAYER, BUT WOULD IT BE GOOD FOR LFC. WHEN ALONSO & GERRARD FINISH PLAYING AT THE SAME TIME IT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE TO FILL THE MIDFIELD ROLE CREATED GOOD IN THE SHORT TERM BUT QUESTIONABLE IN THE LONG TERM"

"Can't believe anyone would want Torres back after another terrible performance for Chelski, like Owen his best days are well and truly gone. Xabi really loves LFC that's why ALL the Liverpool fans love him so much I'd have Alonso today but I'd never resign Torres he is totally rubbish now."

"XABI.....we should not have let you go in the first place. We had the best team in the world at the time. Unfortunately the old yanks had hidden agendas. Used our beloved club to bankroll their own interest. Rafa became the scapegoat....rest is history. I know that LFC means more to you than RM...your kids still wear the red gear with pride. You are still one of the best. Help us win PL"

"On Transfer Rumour - Re Xabi Alonso - If he returns to LFC, the premier league le becomes more than just a possibility. That man is "The Catalyst" needed. With Lucas, Allen and Gerrard in tandem with Xabi, Suarez, Sturridge and Fabio upfront, we become genuine contenders. Bring Alonso home. You Won't Regret it. YNWA "

"Just heard that Torres got booed...I feel sorry for him though at times I was angry when he left us. If I am given a chance, I would give him another chance back to Liverpool. With Alonso and gerard I believe he will get all the support. What else, with Suarez and Sturridge. The striking force will come alive!!!"

"Would love him back but I just don't see it happening. Unless it was coming to the end of his contract. Yes we are building for a future but it would be stupid to think that experience isn't needed too. What's that saying 'You don't win things with kids'. For every Thiago Alcantara you need a Xavi beside him, yes a Barcelona reference ;) "
