EDITORS COMMENTS
In this iconic photograph captured during the FA Cup Final at Wembley on May 16,1987, Coventry City's Trevor Peake is seen playfully carrying off Tottenham Hotspur's Clive Allen. The thrilling match between the two teams had reached its climax, with Allen, Tottenham's prolific goalscorer, posing a significant threat to Coventry's chances of winning the coveted trophy. Peake, a versatile midfielder for Coventry City, had a reputation for his tenacious defending and mischievous antics on the pitch. In this moment, as Allen prepared to launch another attack, Peake saw an opportunity for a bit of fun. With a wink and a grin, he lunged at Allen, wrapping his arms around the Spurs striker and lifting him off the ground. The crowd erupted in laughter and applause as Peake carried Allen away from the action, momentarily disrupting the flow of the game. Allen, taken aback by the surprise attack, was left dangling in mid-air, unable to retaliate. The image of Peake carrying off Allen has since become a symbol of the light-hearted spirit and camaraderie that often accompanies the FA Cup Final. Despite the momentary distraction, Coventry City held on to win the match 3-2, securing their place in football history. The victory marked a significant milestone for the club, which had previously never won the FA Cup. The photograph of Peake and Allen remains a cherished memory of this classic match, encapsulating the excitement, drama, and unpredictability of the beautiful game.
