The Allen Family - Three Generations

Making some who remember Les Allen as a QPR player (let alone QPR manager) and Clive Allen as a teenage prodigy, feel a little old!

BBC Allen loan gets father's backing
Crawley Town's new striker Ollie Allen is confident he will have a good loan spell after advice from his father, the former Spurs and QPR striker, Clive.
He told BBC Southern Counties Radio his father is fully behind the move: "He said it was a good set up."
"I think dad and (Crawley boss) Steve Evans are quite similar characters - very fired up. That's the way the game should be played."
The 21-year-old should debut in the FA Trophy tie at Torquay on Saturday.
The striker joined Crawley on loan after a frustrating spell at Stevenage where he started just one league game.
He said he needed little incentive to sign: "I've seen some results come in and I thought I want to be part of that, scoring eight and five!" BBC
