Maybe Arsenal wanted Radford and George earlier, Palace wanted Clive Allen and the third team wouldn't trade...seen this done in hockey.

The transfers just happen at the same time. It's not like at school where you swap your jam sandwich for your friend's ham one. That is a legimate swap deal.

The suggestion was that Palace wanted Allen but QPR wouldn't sell to them. Arsenal wanted Sampson so they created a deal.
