Al Anpardew's exact wealth is a closely-guarded secret, but he is rumoured to own a palatial London mansion in the much sought after "South Greenwich Village" (previously known as Lewisham).

Even as a young boy, he recalls being delighted when he learned of Mike Flanagan's hole-in-one at Twickenham during the Boat Race."
