Career

Having spent his early years as a prolific goalscorer for Fields United, a youth team in the London Borough of Hackney, Falco started his professional career as a junior at Tottenham Hotspur, making his first-team debut in 1979. In his time at Spurs he played along strikers Steve Archibald and Garth Crooks. He had a good career at Spurs however scoring 98 goals in 236 games.[1] He won the 1984 UEFA Cup with Spurs, successfully dispatching his penalty as Spurs overcame Anderlecht in a shootout. Whilst at Spurs, he had a brief spell on loan at Chelsea over November and December 1982, making three appearances.

In 1986 Falco signed for Watford, scoring 15 goals in 30 matches, but soon moved on to join the growing English contingent at Rangers in the Scottish Premier League. In his short spell at Ibrox, Falco scored 10 goals in 19 competitive games, including a vital strike against Dinamo Kiev in the European Cup.

Falco was signed by Queens Park Rangers for £350,000 in December 1987, and made his debut against Manchester United soon afterwards. He went on to play 87 league games for QPR scoring 27 goals. He moved to Millwall in 1991. He retired through injury in 1992.
