- WHEN he's first introduced to the Kop in 2007, it was shocking to say the least. Not much was known about him, aside that he was bought from Deportivo de la Coruna. The shocking part is that he was lined up in the first 11 against Barcelona with a specific task - to stop Lionel Messi and amazingly, he did it rather quite well!... His part in keeping Messi quiet helped Liverpool to a 2–1 win over the defending champions.
- Thus when we saw his name in the starting line-up the whole season, we have this comfort in our hearts that our backline is as solid as we could be - combined with our rock - Jamie Carragher, Sami Hyppia, Skrtel, Daniel Agger and sometimes on form, sometimes not, Aurelio. Of course, last season we saw a weird spectacle when Carragher pushed and scolded Arbeloa for failing to stop an opponent advancement in our penalty box.
- Now, after 99 games altogether - Arbeloa is returning to his natives land and to be precise, his Alma mater - Real Madrid. He could be the cheapest player the galacticos are assembling now. But no matter for Arbeloa because for him it's like coming home.
- He should be thank full to Rafa and Liverpool. Because of the chances given to him, he made it to the Spanish squad and attracted the crazy Real Madrid owner (crazy when you pay £80 million for a scum).
