Liverpool supporters might agree that Joe Allen’s recent run of form has seen him playing with the wind beneath his wings, but this may be taking it a little too far.
The Welsh midfielder – kind-of-ironically-but-not-really dubbed ‘the Welsh Xavi’ by Brendan Rodgers once upon a time – appears to have taken time out of his busy schedule to show his tender face on the crispy coating of a chicken nugget…

It seems Allen’s unscheduled appearance on the side of this fried delicacy may have been fated after all. Allen and his wife Lacey recently appeared on the cover of Chicken & Egg magazine gamely talking up the 16 chickens they keep at home.
“What are the chickens’ names?” we heard you cry. Well, we’re glad you asked: Bruce, Rodney, Meg, Leg, Silkie Steve, Kate, Silkie Steve Jr, Giblets, Snowy, Nugget, Kiev, Dora, Holly, Shimmer, Shine and Chickaletta.
Well, at least he’s doing something useful with all the money he makes, right?
