I’m reminded by Arsenal on This Day that today is the 32nd anniversary of Clive Allen leaving Arsenal for Crystal Palace. Thirty-two years is a long time to hold a grudge, but Mr Allen seems to be managing it okay. See how he almost barges a frail pensioner out of the way on the touchline at a recent North London Derby, in his efforts to try and join in and get a kick in a competitive game for the Arsenal. Go on Clive! Get in! Meanwhile ‘Arry seems to have fallen asleep or is pretending not to see the incident, and Joe Jordan appeals unsuccessfully for offside.
To be fair, I’m sure Clive’s a lovely fella*.
*No I’m not.
