    Javi is priceless! Bluntly honest but adorable doing it.

  2. Lovely cutie pie! Thanks for translation UnaMadridista!

    And may I add that the second pic from the bottom -the one with Xabi, Alvaro and Iker in it – is like a picture made in heaven!

  3. hahaha, funny answers! especially the one to question no. 50 :D

  4. Ohhhh, your Big Basque Crush is adorable… honest and witty!! ;) I’d love to talk to him in person… he seems to be quite fascinating :)

    I see many La Roja players love the U.S. – Llorente, Crackdevila, Javi… they have to go there together and have fun ;)

  5. “20. What is your dream car?
    – An F1 car.”

    I like this so much. <3____<3
    Also, Una – you are so adorable, with your exclamation marks. xD

  6. Oh my god, Una! You two are perfect for each other! Obvi.

  7. Oh my god. I did not think I could love this boy more.

    But no, he goes and proves me wrong once again.

    This is hilarious and adorable and I find myself otra vez looking up flights to Bilbao…

  8. YES, JAVI, COME TO NEW YORK. No one will recognize you at all, you will blend into the Generically Cute Guy scenery (I mean this in the most positive of ways, and it is completely true), and you can hang out at dinner as long as you want and join in a kickabout with some of my guy friends, who would LOVE it.

    I wish they’d asked him for Iraizoz’s poem. Would have loved to read it too! And also, now I want to see him face off at Playstation against, like, Jack Wilshere.

    And Madridista, “civil status” is a TERRIBLE question to start with, because we know he’s UNMARRIED, this is public knowledge – what we want to know is if he is SINGLE, no?!?!

  9. Thanks for the translation Una! But I’m confused is Javi single or not? Because they ask him who is the sexiest women after his.

  10. I LOVE JAVI!!!!!!!!!! *LMAO* i can’t believe …some of his answers….I just loved and his such a great guy … my fav was the one he said …

    21. Is it easier for footballers to hook up with girls?

    – I wish.

    ^^^^ awwww pobrecito … I’ll hook up with him… with of course your premisson Una^^^

    and then I have to say AMEN to this….

    23. Is love necessary for you in sex?

    – Necessary no, but it is important.

    ^^^ that is 100% true ^^^

    I got a question …. did they ask Xavi those question … cause I know he did few interviews before & some look the same… but not all???

  11. thanks for taking the time to translate! could he get any cuter?

  12. Aw… Javi (!!!) is the cutest thing. He’s got such a sense of humor! I love his answer to the poem question!!(especially since most players are just like “uh… I don’t read poetry”)

  13. Awww. He really is adorable. And seems awfully down to earth too.

    Thanks for the translation!

  14. Thanks for the translation! I’d be happy to be his personal tour guide in New York :). He’s so cute and sweet. How is he still single??

  15. I can see why you love Javi so much! He is just too perfect and funny! :D

  16. The fact that he supports Mexico just makes me love him even more!!!

    • mari_madridista

      I couldn’t agree with you anymore. I was reading this thinking, “aw, javi is adorable!” but when he got to that question, it was like cupid’s arrow hit me, jaja.

    • I know me too! I’ve been a die hard fan of El Tri all my life. I got all giddy when I read that!

  17. I know my comment isn’t really original or anything, but whenever he’s concerned, my brain is too busy squeeing and can’t think properly, so I’ll just leave it at this:

    I LOVE HIM. More than anything or anyone. Really and honestly. OMG.

  18. OMG he’s cute, witty and smart.
