Waste of £15m


Seriously, LFC fans, this guy is boring to watch, even Henderson is more exciting. Allen stops Gerrard playing, slows the team down and is just predictable.

He's almost like a Charlie Adam but with short passing- for every few passes there's a silly foul.

Just imagine what could've been bought with £15m- I'll leave you with that thought. Another example of Liverpool's flawed 'buy British' policy

@maresh I dunno his distribution looked a lot sharper and more positive than say Hendo and Spearing last year in the 1st month, but hes definitely dropped off.

@lucas21 There are loads of stats out there if you look hard enough. FourFourTwo Stats Zone on the iPhone is epic.

Think it'd be nice if there were stats to show the percentage of side and back passes compared to forward passes

@maresh actually that's where you're wrong, allen made a forward creative pass on sunday! i remember it well, it went about 10 yards past gerrard and went straight out for a goal kick....

Strange one this because i rated him highly at swansea but the second half of last season and still this season, i'm starting to question what did I actually rate. Too many sideward and back passing for my liking, keeping it safe but theres no progression or productivity in what he does. Looks fantastic for opta stats but for the team is more negative than positive in my opinion. At least Xavi makes forward creative passes, cant remember the last time Allen has :S I mean LFC fans correct me if im wrong but so far not value for money, only bonus is he's still young and will improve so lets hope so

@CAREFREEE yeah but consider the wages too. at LFC allen would probably earn about half what sneijder earns a week so sneijder will be the more expensive long term. the transfer fee doesn't always tell the whole story

Sneijer offers are getting accepted for 8m so i get your point!!

I've never been joey's biggest fan as many of you will know. and i was well annoyed when he played ahead of hendo on sunday. he may well come good if we see more of the player we saw at the beginning of the season (notably against arsenal and city at anfield) then he will be a beast for us. unfortunately he has been utter wank for about 3 months now. just think of what that 15 million could have got us... in that sense i guess it was a waste because central midfield was never a priority in that window. and the fee is extortionate, jesus. 15 million. #wecomenottofindvalueformoneyinthetransfermarket

@paulison I agree. But I think the other 2 thought about Allen for CAM

@TheMightyPotter Adam did play well for Blackpool but he did not come anywahere close to that form for us and, from what I have seen so far this season, he isn't doing much better for you. Please correct me if you disagree but my point was that (disappointing as Allen's recent form has been) I still feel that Allen is looking a better player for Liverpool than Adam ever did.

@KavLFC @tittletan @paulison Just to make sure you know, I'm talking about Adam. Secondly, remember when he played for Blackpool?

@TheMightyPotter AM? So he can get the ball with a chance to pass to Suarez to complete a counter attack but instead pass back to the defence? Brilliant.

@TheMightyPotter CAM ? absolutely not.

Saying 'Liverfool,' 'Loserpool' or 'Liverpoo' is an embarrassment to life. It's worse than calling Man United 'Manure.'

@TheMightyPotter I don't think he's got the pace, accuracy or class to be an outstanding midfielder and he can't tackle.

@IanRush CAM is his best position

@TheMightyPotter How so? He's a CM and played there for Liverpool and Stoke. BTW, calling us "Liverfool" really shows us all how young you are.

@petergriffith94 Charlie Adam has been played in the wrong position for Stoke and Liverfool. But Allen has been worse for money

Woah... that's well harsh. He's nowhere near as bad as Charlie Adam!
