There’s not a great deal of difference in Liverpool‘s Joe Allen and Billy Elliot.
They were both stars once, but both have now gone on to fade away.
Billy Elliot, or Jamie Bell, the actor that played Billy Elliot in the movie, was hot property after the film was released. Jamie won awards and the film about a boy who stumbled across ballet was a huge success.
But after Billy Elliot, Jamie hasn’t had the same success.
When Brendan Rodgers was appointed as Liverpool’s new manager, one of his main plans was to bring his former player to Anfield.
He achieved that but it took £15million to take him from the Liberty Stadium. Since his move, Allen just hasn’t impressed as a Liverpool player. He keeps the ball but is not hurting teams and is too lightweight. He also now no longer features in Liverpool’s starting XI.
If Allen’s career continues to fail at Liverpool, a role as Jamie’s stunt double in his next movie could be an option available to the Welshman.
