This week we launch a brand new series of one-to-one interviews with notable footballing figures from both the past and present.

Our very first guest in the new series of the KUMB Podcast is former West Ham and England striker Clive Allen, who featured for the Hammers during the 1991/92, 1992/93 and 1993/94 campaigns.



One-to-one: Allen v Howlett


In our exclusive interview, the East End-born striker chats with KUMB's Graeme Howlett about his time at the club which covered one relegation, one instant promotion and one career-ending injury.

During the 40-minute chat, Clive also talks about:

* Why he didn't consider joining West Ham as a youth player
* The world-class star who embarrassed his cousin Martin 'Mad Dog' Allen during Clive's first match for West Ham
* Why his (other) cousin, Paul Allen, was happy to be fouled by Willie Young in the 1980 FA Cup Final
* Why he has never followed cousin Martin into management
* His thoughts on the Billy Bonds/Harry Redknapp partnership, that ended acrimoniously
