      A true genius. RIP

      He was undoubtedly mad. That&#39;s why he left DCFC for Forest.

            i&#39;m not a football person, but my grandad played footy for a living years ago - he was a big cloughie fan.

            i always liked his one liners too&#33;

            sleep well indeed.

                  Managed to miss this - last I heard he was sort of off the booze and occasionally helping out in a relative&#39;s newsagent&#39;s in West Bridgford...

                  Not a footy fan at all, but even I know when a legend exits the landscape - when I was growing up, the joke was to put your foot on the pedal bin, open the lid wide and shout &#39;Look, it&#39;s Brian Clough&#39;. Still can&#39;t use a pedal bin without thinking of him, actually...

                  Surprising he lasted this long, but very sad to see him go...

                    Have to agree with you there. Watford rubbish

                    And shame about Cloughie, he was a giant of a character in the game, and gave it to that pitch invader good and proper.

                              That was quite a chortle. I was at school with two of the lads he clattered (Mark Wheeler and Paul Richardson) and they knew that they were the ones out of order and it was they who apologised. The Clough effect demonstrated there methinks.

                              Sir Alex is Sir Alex because his team (WATPOAE) enjoyed an incredible level of success during the 90s and then took the Champions League as part of a unique treble-winning season.

                              And because he knocked the fucking scousers off their perch&#33;&#33;

                              No arguments that Clough should have been knighted also, and I&#39;ve a feeling it was imminent (which makes the man&#39;s passing all the more poignant). Maybe it took longer to award him one because he was such a public and staunch socialist?

                              You have to remember how much easier it was to win in Europe in those days though, when you could avoid bigger teams because of the lack of seeding system and it was a straight knock-out competition from the off. I don&#39;t want to belittle Forest&#39;s achievements, but they played FC Malmo in one final for fuck&#39;s sake&#33;

                              Pinched these from a United fansite (where we express much mirth over duffing the vermin last night):

                              If God had wanted us to play football in the clouds, he&#39;d have put grass up there.&quot; On the importance of passing to feet.

                              &quot;Manchester United in Brazil? I hope they all get bloody diarrhea.&quot; On Man Utd opting-out of the FA Cup to play in the World Club Championship.

                              &quot;I can&#39;t even spell spaghetti never mind talk Italian. How could I tell an Italian to get the ball - he might grab mine.&quot; On the influx of foreign players.

                              &quot;I bet their dressing room will smell of garlic rather than liniment over the next few months.&quot; On the number of French players at Arsenal.

                              &quot;Who the hell wants fourteen pairs of shoes when you go on holiday? I haven&#39;t had fourteen pairs in my life.&quot; On the contents of Posh Spice&#39;s missing luggage.

                              &quot;I wouldn&#39;t say I was the best manager in the business. But I was in the top one.&quot; Looking back at his success.

                              &quot;On occasions I have been big headed. I think most people are when they get in the limelight. I call myself Big Head just to remind myself not to be.&quot; Old Big &#39;Ead explains his nickname.

                              &quot;Walk on water? I know most people out there will be saying that instead of walking on it, I should have taken more of it with my drinks. They are absolutely right.&quot; Reflecting on his drink problem.

                              &quot;Players lose you games, not tactics. There&#39;s so much crap talked about tactics by people who barely know how to win at dominoes.&quot; Reflecting on England&#39;s exit from Euro 2000.

                              &quot;We talk about it for twenty minutes and then we decide I was right.&quot; On dealing with a player who disagrees.

                              &quot;I want no epitaphs of profound history and all that type of thing. I contributed - I would hope they would say that, and I would hope somebody liked me,&quot; On how he would like to be remembered.

                              &quot;It was a crooked match and he was a crooked referee. That was a tournament we could and should have won.&quot; On the 1984 UEFA Cup semi-final Forest lost to Anderlecht.

                              &quot;I&#39;m sure the England selectors thought if they took me on and gave me the job, I&#39;d want to run the show. They were shrewd, because that&#39;s exactly what I would have done.&quot; On not getting the England manager&#39;s job.

                              &quot;For all his horses, knighthoods and championships, he hasn&#39;t got two of what I&#39;ve got. And I don&#39;t mean balls&#33;&quot; Referring to Sir Alex Ferguson&#39;s failure to win two successive European Cups.

                              &quot;I like my women to be feminine, not sliding into tackles and covered in mud.&quot; On women&#39;s football.

                              &#39;&#39;That Seaman is a handsome young man but he spends too much time looking in his mirror, rather than at the ball. You can&#39;t keep goal with hair like that.&quot; On England goalkeeper David Seaman.

                              &quot;I&#39;ve missed him. He used to make me laugh. He was the best diffuser of a situation I have ever known. I hope he&#39;s alright.&quot; On the late Peter Taylor.

                              &quot;He&#39;s learned more about football management than he ever imagined. Some people think you can take football boots off and put a suit on. You can&#39;t do that.&quot; On David Platt&#39;s first season as Forest manager.
