“If Steven Gerrard is the heart, Alonso is the brain.”-Tony Barrett
I’ve been thinking a lot about Stevie and Xabi and how to explain my feelings in regards to them. It’s been over 5 years since they’ve played together (not counting the charity match) and yet they are still talking about each other and breaking my heart in the process. I guess it’s not easy to get over someone who “knew exactly where I was” during games and who’s departure left you “devastated”. I’m never going to get over the way they smile and sway when they hear each other’s names during interviews, nor the fact Xabi still calls Stevie his captain after all these years. They are simply the greatest football otp and I look forward to the day they are side by side again.
