Jermaine Pennant Liverpool 2006 2009 Stoke 2010 2014 Signed for £6.7 million on 26 July 2006, Pennant made his Liverpool debut against Maccabi Haifa in the Champions League qualifiers and scored a memorable first goal in a red shirt in the 2-0 home victory against Chelsea. Loaned out for the second half of the 2008/09 season, Pennant was not offered a new contract upon his return and eventually moved to Real Zaragoza as a free agent. Pennant agreed a four-month loan deal to Stoke City on the final day of August 2010 transfer window, in that time he played 13 games for the Potters and didn’t register a single goal but was signed permanently in the January transfer window of that season. After signing permanently Pennant played a further 52 games and scored a total of four goals.   Michael Owen Liverpool 1996 2004 Stoke 2012 2013 A product of Liverpool’s academy, Owen rose to stardom during his time at the reds. In his eight-year career at Anfield Michael Owen turned out 216 times and scored 118 goals; collecting an FA Cup, two League Cups, a UEFA Cup, a Super Cup and winning the Ballon D’or for his performances in 2001. Owen eventually moved to Real Madrid in 2004 for a fee of £8 million + Antonio Nunez where he would spend just one season before moving back to the Premier League. Michael Owen ended his career at Stoke after his infamous move to rivals Manchester United, during his time there he was hampered with hamstring injuries and would only make eight appearances, scoring once in a 3-1 defeat to Swansea.   Victor Moses Liverpool 2013 2014 (loan) Stoke 2014 2015 (loan) Moses appeared in a Liverpool and Stoke shirt by the product of two failed loan spells from parent club Chelsea, making 19 appearances for both sides his time at Stoke was arguably more successful than his time at Liverpool with him scoring three times for the Potters as opposed to once on his time at Merseyside. Despite these two failed loans and another one the season after at West Ham Moses somehow still found himself at Chelsea and played an integral part to their title charge last season.   Glen Johnson Liverpool 2009 2015 Stoke 2015 Present Johnson signed for Liverpool as one of the best right backs in the Premier League, his time at Portsmouth was enough to convince Liverpool to pay £18.5 million making him the most expensive right back in the Premier League at the time. He played in the 2012 League Cup victory over Cardiff and scored eight goals in 160 appearances for Liverpool. After being released from Liverpool, Glen Johnson moved to Stoke where he was weirdly given the number 8 shirt. He initially was their starting right back and has made 51 appearances but game time has been hard to come by recently for the ex-England player.   Salif Diao Liverpool 2002 2007 Stoke 2006 2012 One of the worst signings in Liverpool history, Diao become a running joke during his time at Liverpool. Time was spent on loan at Birmingham and Portsmouth before finally finding his home at Stoke. Still in the championship at the time Diao helped Tony Pulis’ side gain promotion to the Premier League and eventually retired whilst at the club in 2012.   Peter Crouch Liverpool 2005 2008 Stoke 2011 – Present The player with the record for most headed goals in the Premier League, Crouch is adored by football fans in general as especially by fans whose clubs he spent time at. It took a while for Crouch to get going at Liverpool but once he scored his first then there was no stopping him, scoring a memorable perfect hat-trick against Arsenal and multiple bicycle kicks during his time on Merseyside. Crouch joined Stoke from Spurs in 2011 and despite being 30 at the time has spent six years at the club with no plans to retire soon. It was during his time at Stoke that he broke the record for most headed goals in the Premier League with 43 goals in 180 appearances and scored some memorable goals most notably a volley from distance against Manchester City. Patrik Berger Liverpool 1996 2003 Stoke 2006 2007 (loan) Now an ambassador for the club, Berger is remembered fondly on Merseyside. Renown for his long range shooting the Czech played a vital role in Liverpool’s 2001 treble season. In his seven years at the club Berger made 148 appearances and scored 28 goals, with the most notable of these being his double against Chelsea. In 2003, Berger would move on from Liverpool and sign for Pourtsmouth. Three years later, whilst an Aston Villa player, Berger moved to Stoke on loan for a short period after falling out with the Martin O’Neill. He would only start one game for the then Championship team whilst he made six more appearances as a substitute. In January 2007 he went back to Aston Villa where he would once again fall out with the manager and move back to his boyhood club Sparta Prague.   Oussama Assaidi Liverpool 2012 2015 Stoke 2013 2015 (loan) Signed out of nowhere in 2012, Assaidi looked a bargain in his Youtube videos. As it usually goes, the player in the Youtube clips wasn’t the same player that was stepping out onto the pitch. In his one year at the club Assaidi played four times and didn’t manage to score a single goal. He would, however, go on to help Liverpool during his time at Stoke; scoring the winning goal against Chelsea who were rivalling Liverpool in the title race.   Joe Allen Liverpool 2012 2016 Stoke 2016 Present The Welsh Xavi was one of Brendan Rodgers main targets in his first summer transfer window at Liverpool, in his four years at the club Joe Allen made 91 appearances and scored four times; one of them being the late equaliser against Arsenal at Anfield. Joe Allen had good spells and bad spells during his time at Liverpool but ultimately failed to live up to his price tag. Joe Allen has been a consistent starter since his move to Stoke, he hit the ground running with six goals in his first season at the club; more than he managed in his whole time at Liverpool. An injury on International Duty has plagued his season so far but when he comes back Joe Allen will be looking to help his team climb the table.   Charlie Adam Liverpool 2011 2012 Stoke 2012 Present Charlie Adam was the star of a Blackpool team that captured the hearts of Premier League fans but ultimately failed to avoid the drop. Despite coming up with the team Adam’s performances meant he wouldn’t be going back down into the Championship with them and he signed for Liverpool in 2011 for £6.75 million. Similarly to Joe Allen, Charlie Adam had a couple of good games but failed to live up to the money we paid for him; moving to Stoke after just one season. Adam has been much more consistent for Stoke, in 134 appearances he has scored 19 times but at the age of 31 Charlie Adam now finds himself in the BBC Radio Studio more than he finds himself on the pitch for Stoke.     Article by Louis Connor
