January is just around the corner and that means the transfer window will be open again. I expect there to be quite a bit of activity during that time. Not so much at Liverpool but with other teams in the Premiership. But it is not going to surprise me when we get bombarded with a lot of bids for Xabi Alonso. With the form Alonso has been showing this season, it is only natural that clubs are going to want his services especially since they know that there is some tension between Xabi and Rafa.

Now I do not know exactly what is going through Alonso’s mind right now and so to Rafa’s but I hope that both parties are not willing to go their separate ways comes January. I just hope they can put their differences aside until the end of the season and then we re-look the scenario in the summer. It is clear Rafa wanted to sell Alonso and get Barry but right now, Alonso is probably our player of the season so far.

Alonso seems like a new signing with the way he has just bought in a new lease of life to the team. He is working harder and his passes are more accurate than they were last season. We have a unit that can challenge for the title this season and if we let Alonso go in January then we would seriously dent our title chances. This is the best we have looked in a very long time and let us not rock the boat.
