Don't know how to link but if you want to hear it type Frank McAvennie; Interview with Sex, Drugs & Carlton Cole... About 1 minute in.
McAvennie explains he was close to signing for Luton before joining West Ham in 1985. McAvennie got on really well with Pleat after meeting him. Luton paid for McAvennie, his agent and officials from St Mirren to come down to Luton to complete the deal.
But then guess who ####ed it up?! David Evans.
Upon meeting McAvennie, Evans came up behind him and slapped him on the head, saying 'Welcome to Luton'. McVennie said he wanted to knock Evans out. Sounds like Evans was being a bit tricky about the money and McAvennie thought better about it and told his agent he wanted out.
His agent then told him West Ham had also made an approach but had to give Luton first refusal. McAvennie and his agent meet John Lyall that night at Toddington Service Station and the rest is history.
What a line up that could have been Stein, Harford, McAvennie. I'm surmising we went out and got Newell instead.
