Up Front: My Autobiography

Clive Allen, James Olley

Regular price $25.80

From the publisher:

Clive Allen is one of the finest goalscorers of his generation but arguably his biggest battle has been to prove himself the best in his own family. His remarkable 49-goal haul for Tottenham in the 1986-87 season still stands as a club-record which earned him the rare dual honour of Professional Footballers Association Player of the Year and Football Writers Association Player of the Year in addition to the First Division Golden Boot. That stunning achievement is the apotheosis of a career which began at Queens Park Rangers before becoming English footballs first million-pound teenager when signing for Arsenal in 1980. Yet, in one of the most mysterious transfers of modern times, Clive was sold to Crystal Palace without playing a game and went on to represent eight more clubs including a year in France with Bordeaux before a brief stint as an NFL kicker for the London Monarchs.

The author:

Clive Allen won the Professional Footballers Association Player of the Year and Football Writers Association Player of the Year in 1987 after a remarkable season in which he scored 49 goals for Spurs. Clive also had spells at QPR, Arsenal, Crystal Palace, Bordeaux, Manchester City, Chelsea, West Ham, Millwall and Carlisle. James Olley is a journalist, biographer and opinion-former with more than a decades experience reporting on the biggest events in football for the London Evening Standard. He is a regular contributor for the BBC, Sky Sports and talkSPORT and a Sports Journalists Association Regional Journalist of the Year winner. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
