three and a half minutes with… Xavi Hernández

I don’t know how long it will take me to produce the celebration posts, since I really want to enjoy this moment (and because no help is going on), so in the meantime, read the Q&A with Xavi!  It’s not as good as his famous one from the World Cup, but then again, nothing can top that one.

2. How much are chickens these days?  I don’t know; Cholo, my flatmate, does the shopping.
