Clive's wish

Posted on 22 April 2004  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Clive Allen has two wishes this weekend - one we beat Arsenal on Sunday, two that he could play himself!

Legendary Lane striker Clive - famed for his 49 goals in 1986-87 - is back at the club as reserve team coach.

He wishes he could turn the clock back a few years and pull the white jersey on again.

He said: "I always remember the games being very tight encounters, very fast and furious, classic derby matches.

"You always understood the magnitude of the games for not just yourself as a player but the fans as well.

"That will always be the case regardless of where the teams are in the league. I always enjoyed it. I loved the extra edge of the games and I can't see a footballer who wouldn't want to play in them. I just wish I could play now!

"I'm sure that will be the same on Sunday. I think it will be a close game, I hope it is and I would love to see us come through and win because, without doubt, that would be just what we need for the end of our season."
