    Default We Remember Brian Howard Clough - Sept 20th Brian Clough Day

    I always earmark Sept 20th as Brian Clough Day
    The Greatest Manager. A man who could manage in any era and achieve success.

    Never forgotten. So many quotes, perhaps each could share 1 or a story.

    I wouldn't say I was the best manager in the business, but I was in the top 1.

    Why celebrate the date of Mr. Clough‘s death? Celebrate his birthday instead.

    As the great man himself said:

    „If you like me, don’t send flowers when I’m dead. Send them while I’m alive!“

    „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“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    Oh sorry Sept 20th is also his birthday....

    Thanks for the info...

    Meanwhile Mr Clough to Pat Jennings:

    Dear Pat, I have absolutely no sympathy. Every time you come to the City Ground you stop everything that comes in your direction. It’s of no surprise to me that you stopped the dart on this occasion, Lots of love. Brian’.

    Who's celebrating his death? You?

    I think there's a difference in REMEMBERING and CELEBRATING...

    But of course a brilliant Mod like yourself can substitute words to your liking.

    Bye now...

    Right.

    You are pushing it. You’ve made a couple of recent pops at Moderators, made trolling posts, and wound us up, seemingly deliberately.

    This is the last time I’m going to warn you - publicly - stop attempting to take the piss out of volunteers who give up their free time to moderate this forum.

    OK?

    This will be the last warning you get.

    Take care the nerves and hail volunteerism.
    Especially in the covid era. It's a great sense of duty.

    Huh?

    What are you on about?

    'Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings' - Salvador Dali 1904-1989

    I think 'odd' is a good thing. Oddness shows originality, uniqueness and a desire to be different from the masses. Oddness is, maybe, only deemed 'odd' by the majority who are considered less odd but only by their own blinkered observations and understanding. Oddness should never be criticised but be encouraged to nurture, develop individualism and to explore the mind rather than conform to expectation and 'normality'. Many of the world's greatest works of art and prose were born from those minds many considered to be 'odd'.

    It might seem unreasonable, those of us who give up our time to keep the forum running, expecting to be able to do so without pathetic attempts to wind us up, without our work being criticised and belittled, and without frankly rubbish attempts to troll us, and other members.

    And when giving those who seem to delight in flouting what few rules we have the opportunity to reverse themselves, which - sadly - in this case was not taken.

    Oh, well.
