if one day football doesn’t work out…*

November 28, 2011

We all know that Xabi Alonso is very stylish, elegant and great at (unintentional) posing.  So that got me thinking, and this is the result.

* as great a model as Xabi is, I don’t ever want to see the day that football doesn’t work out for him, but it’s good to know that he has other options.

    This is great! I have a feeling Xabi could even make Sergio’s wardrobe look good. 😉

    This is just brilliant! 🙂

    I have to confess I went thru the whole ‘catalog’ thrice so far, looking at different aspects of the amazing model, and admiring him doing his thing.

    Fabulous job Una! You totally rock!

    *LMFAO* That is amazing, Una! I love it! He does have a carer as a model – he is perfect for it. 🙂 Thanks for showing this!

    Ugh, how does he always look so flawless? I would ask for lessons, but I suspect it can’t be taught.

    (Also, what a way to start the week. You are the best, ever.)

    That’s it, I’m renaming him Marypoppins Alonso, as he is clearly Practically Perfect In Every Way.

    Thanks Madridista for taking the time to put together this amazing slideshow! I really can’t pick my fave outfit, but if pressed, that grey jacket + jeans combo is SURPRISINGLY flattering. And no one else can rock the classic Dad outfit of polo+shorts and look so unDadly. Oh Xabs. How are you so awesome.

    I love your page, your comments and everything you post in here! Congratulations! Keep on going this way; it always makes my day to read about these wonderful football players, and even more, because it comes from a female perspective! Thanks!

    If you want to do more of this sort of post and fewer “newsy” posts, I don’t mind. I can find news if I look for it, but this type of brilliance can only be found here. 🙂

    awesome work una!!

    however, i do believe arbeloa is sneaking up on xabi in the bossness dept. i’m not liking xabi’s full beard with the moustache. a bit too fred flintstone for me. preferred it when it was just red scruff on the cheeks

  15. November 28, 2011 15:57

    he is amazing.

    I am trying to catch my breath while staring at the tuxedo picture. It is so dreamy. I really would appreciate a husband like that. seriously.

    Love it! If he can’t have his own clothing line, he should at least be a stylist.

  17. November 28, 2011 17:00

    Oh that was a great post. Xabi is always so elegant. And your blog is amazing, Una!

  20. November 28, 2011 17:27

    (that said, I’m probably going to cry rivers the day Xabi leaves football, but let’s not talk about that…)

    hahahaha! that’s just brilliant, una!

  26. November 28, 2011 20:11

    This post is so absolutely spot-on and perfect, it’s ridiculous. What’s more ridiculous is how good looking Xabi is, it’s not fair that not all guys look like him!

    Xabi is truly a GQ material. I wish more footballers dressed like him.

    This is extremely random, but who the hell keeps giving cruyff interviews?? He has an article everyday and pisses me off to no end

  36. November 29, 2011 01:53

    haha this is wonderful. It gives me a great excuse to stare at him.

  37. November 29, 2011 02:16

    love it ,, Alonso my best ever 🙂

  38. November 29, 2011 02:49

    A+++ post!

    I seriously hope that one day, Xabi would drag Sergio to a GQ party, so that Sergio can learn some style pointers.

    Xabi is perfection personified. Adjectives fail me.

  39. November 29, 2011 03:39

    heh. love it! i’m telling you, him and arbeloa …

    Ah, Xabi looks so good, no matter what he wears! We would really be a great model! But if it’s up to me, he can start a modelling-career after his football-career. I’m sure he’s one of this man who look even better when getting older 😉

    JAJA my favorite part is that you got “pass on to the next generation” in the caption for the picture of Xabi with Esteban, AKA XIT! XD Too good.
