It's a coincidence that I'm really getting into that book at this particular point in political history.

Just wonder if the Labourite disorganisation possesses anyone with the genius of Ol' Big 'ead [or whatever you call him in your own West Germanic dialect].

Now -- differences in team selection. That's another thing.

Cloughie would have run a country properly. Can't think of a single socialist chancer fit to lace his boots.

Yoong man, I'll 'ave you know that he was a socialist chancer who would never lace your bootlaces.

And 'e 'ad superior tactics.

Even if I'm found drunk in a ditch [on 8/9/09] I'll still need to look up to him.

Once in a while a character emerges from an unlikely source,so unique that you wonder that there have not been any others to precede,or to effectively follow him.Clough truly was a one-off.Brilliant yet flawed,arrogant yet riddled with self doubt.What he did do was provide entertainment to a degree we had never expected from a footballer.Even when he was demonstrably wrong (The Polish "Clown" goalie).Make sure you see the film,despite the ludicrous casting of Taylor it is a classic.

I'm no longer a follower of the great game, just the World Cup/Euro matches, in fact I'm that guy who goes quiet when the conversation moves to the latest transfers. However, as a young lad I followed Forest through their glory years under Clough, taken to the City ground by my uncle to thrill at the noisy sweariness of the Trent End. In those days I could list every player including the subs and viewed Brian Clough as an absolute hero.

Two European cups, the first million pound signing, the England goalkeeper...eeeh, jumpers for goalposts.

Just a shame that Forest are in the Gala Bingo Local League these days.

In his book, Clough says that he paid 999,999 for Francis out of protest so he wasn't in fact the first million pound player.

I'm a Forest fan too

It's a real shame the way the game has evolved into who has the most money.

In those days good coaching and man-management was the key.

I hate all these 'big four' glory hunters

Brian Clough was an absolute legend!

The only good thing about it is that his achievements with Derby and Forest will never be repeated.Could you imagine a modern day manager taking a provincial championship team and winning the Champions League and the Premiership?
