moved to Arsenal in June 1983 for £800,000. However he did not really live up to
the hype surrounding his move, and his lifestyle in the capital was the
subject of much tabloid speculation, earning him the nickname "Champagne
Charlie" and only scored 11 goals in his first season.
In all he scored 54 goals
in 184 matches for the Gunners before he was sold to Aberdeen in January 1988.
