    Default Happy Birthday, Mr. Clough!

    The great man would have been 85 today.



    Whilst he may not have been the best Manager in the business, he was certainly in the top 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“

    The word Legend is banded around far too much these days.

    If you looked up the meaning of the word in the dictionary it would say : Brian Howard Clough OBE.

    Happy Birthday

    I miss that man, still remember the horrible feeling in my stomach when I heard of his passing.

    I don't suffer from being star struck and often find the cult of celebrity irritating, but I did actually seek out Cloughie's family house in Middlesbrough and photograph it and then walked round to his statue in the local park.

    It seemed a perfectly sensible thing to do.

    Oh and happy birthday Red Bandit out there in bandit country, from previous posts I reckon you are a few months older than me as my birthday is not until July.
