    I always thought with Cloughie's love of Derby that is was a case of "first cut is the deepest".

    Two things. I heard the man say once on the radio that Derby County were like your first love, you would never forget them and always have a soft for them. Also a friend of mine was on a table with Mr Clough at a corporate event and Andy asked Mr Clough who was the best player he ever bought. He answered immediately.....................

    I've often thought that Derby must have employed some truly outstanding managers during his eighteen years at the CG in order for Cloughie not to ever get the opportunity to go back there.

    I don't care what people say about which club he liked best, or which team he thought was better...

    Twice European Champions.

    I wonder what his feelings for the sheep would be now considering how they treated his number nine. And I would imagine his favourite team would be Burton if he was still alive

    It would have been strange if he hadn't subsequently wondered 'what if' after the way he and PT left them, especially when they seemed to have everything going for them there.

    I've often thought BC & PT had a self destructive streak. They left Derby when they were on the cusp of greatness, and broke up the Forest European Cup winning team when it could have dominated for quite a few years after.

    Me too.

    Which is why I find it so bizarre that so many hold that, and supposed "ego-ness" against a certain modern day manager of ours.

    This.

    Derby fans can grasp at his affection for them all they want but the facts are he spent far more time here, and made some incredible history for us that now defines our club.

    I'll take what he did this club over which club he liked. Funny to see how keen they've been to associate themselves with Sir Brian in recent years, as a marketing tactic, where near universally he is identified with us.

    To be fair, and much as it pains me to say it, Cloughie's Derby era was wonderful football theatre from start to finish. I was certainly very jealous of Derby at the time for having him as manager.

    Also that really was when he established himself as a household name and created the platform for his legend.

    Indeed Hulk. Sheep fans should take note that their then-chairman, George Hardy, pulled out all the stops in 1978 to try and entice the pair of them back to the Baseball Ground. Taylor was very much up for it but, thankfully, Cloughie wasn't, much to the relief of the fans at the this end of the A52 following a tense couple of days when the Derby Telegraph was triumphantly anticipating their return as though it were a mere formality.

    Cloughies Derby side is the one that beat Leeds in their pomp no wonder he loved them so much. Plus he got a bunch of rag tags and moulded them together a bit like forest I'm not surprised he said that however it's a very small victory for Derby when we have all the trophies and records. I don't care if Clough thought his Derby side was the best one he built it changes nothing.

    Spot on Otis, you took the words from mouth. I was living in Derby at the time, yes the Derby Evening Telegraph were so cock sure Clough and Taylor were returning back to Sheepland. If my memory serves me correctly it was not too long before the first League Cup final. This was when the fans put the placard on the pitch saying "BRIAN NO LEAVING, the gentlemen" (this was a response to the Clough placard that read "GENTLEMEN NO SWEARING PLEASE, Brian")

    Derby fans have never got over that Clough snubbed them. I remember sheep supporters chanting on many occasions, " who's up Clougie's arse... who's up Cloughie's arse... Peter Peter Taylor is... Peter Peter Taylor is". Says it all about the respect they had for Clough and Taylor during the late 70s and early 80s.

    The thing is Derby is a smaller place, it didn't have city status when Clough was there. The whole place embraced him and he literally ran the town from some stories I've heard, much back scratching and deals were done in the Midland Hotel.
    He never had that power or pull in Nottingham, the city is too big and the people are more stubborn. Even Taylor preferred Derby and he was a Nottingham lad.

    The Footballing Town comment is bollocks, I don't care who originally said it. Their ground was designed for baseball ffs. It was a Railway town and still is a manufacturing place. Derby County are in the background. Clough and Taylor could have taken over any provincial town football team and the whole place would be behind them.

    I wonder how many other non-football "towns" have accommodated two league clubs for the last 152 years?

    Well, it’s their “Cup Final”, isn’t it?

    Their junior league games are cancelled for it. Our lads teams, the sheepshaggers that play for them aren't playing and are going to the game....no problem but they dont miss games when they play anyone else but Forest.... its really sad.

    Isn't Burton closer to Derby than Nottingham is? Surely they are their rivals now?
