    Those heartfelt seven words from Barry Davies (10.00) still make me cry like a baby today.

    Thanks for posting.

    Just found this interview with John McGovern on Cloughie's retirement. Good insight.

    There are very few sports commentators who qualify as genuine legends.

    Barry Davies is one.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    Had the good fortune to spend an a morning in the Comppany of BC. By the time I met him he was already drinking hard and his first question was would I like a beer or whisky at 10.30 am. The next few hours were magic, it was a Friday before we played Derby on the Saturday and he asked me to wait while he went and talked to the players. I thought well he will be away for an hour... 10 minutes later he was back , what did you say Mr Clough and it was just go out there and play the ball on the grass and we will win.. we did. He invited me to lunch but even then it was all about the young players who were coming through , I would have to research the player but he spent time with the parents of a young player who eventually played in the first team and they were in awe of him.

    Great moment for me and he was a genius ..albeit flawed by drink at the end.

    Thank you for all the memories... I will always remember you for giving me so many great times and memories.

    No words needed. Just a few minutes of deep thought for such good times.

    I've got a BC story I heard at a reunion of Forest players a few years ago. All through the evening you couldn't separate Neil Webb and Steve Sutton. They told some great stories about the time they went on a cider diet. But someone asked Webby to compare working for Mr Clough and Alex Ferguson. Neil said that very often you wouldn't see Cloughie until about ten to three on matchday. He'd walk into the dressing room hand the ball to Webby or Steve Hodge and say " There's the ball now go and play with it " and that was the team talk. Neil said working for Ferguson was hard work. Get there at noon talk about the oppositions strengths and weaknesses. He said he hated every minute of being a Manchester United player

    Shouldn't have gone then.

    There are, of course, countless ways of remembering "Cloughie" from his achievements, interviews and stories about him by others. He was football and football was him.

    One bit of all that which always springs to my mind was his post-match interview on Match of the Day after beating Arsenal to reach his first ever FA Cup Semi-Final. His excitement about it was there to be seen in his face - Clough was having a struggle to be Clough! I'm not suggesting his whole career was act, far from it, but he was always in control of a situation with a witty put-down or a line out the blue that nobody would expect. But on that occasion you could tell he really had to fight an inner urge to be just like us mortals, put his hands in the air and scream "YEEESSS! YES, YES, YES!"

    He'd been 'Clough' with the Championship trophy in his hand. He'd been 'Clough' with the European Cup in his hand. I'm guessing his reaction that afternoon was not so much about the FA Cup itself but about being so close to finally completing 'the set'.


    I just found that moment endearing, reminding me that he too is human after all. Wish he'd been able to complete his set. Bless him.
