Plenty of Liverpool fans have been having their say on former Reds’ midfielder Joe Allen and his time at Anfield.

The 30-year-old now plays his football for the Championship outfit Stoke City after four seasons at Anfield. The Welshman scored seven goals and provided five assists in 132 outings, admitting that he did not know that he was leaving the club until he found out from a friend.

Previous manager Brendan Rodgers, who was dismissed in 2015 that paved way for Jurgen Klopp to come to the club, famously called Allen the “Welsh Xavi” in a career which represented anything but that. The 53-cap international was Rodgers’ second signing since he was hired in 2012.

Was Joe Allen's career successful at Anfield?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Taking this all into consideration, supporters did not rave over Allen’s time at Anfield and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan said that he “tried but wasn’t at the level that’s needed”, while another described him as “bang average”.
