Remembering Mr Clough, six years on..

The man himself wanted no epitaphs of profound history and all that.  So I won’t write one.  Not again!  Let’s face it, there’s a lot of excellent ones already out there in book or website form, but I would of course urge you all to take a moment to reflect, have a think and perhaps raise a glass to our foremost of legends.

Rest in peace, Mr Clough.  You now stand proudly in bronze in three cities to whom you bestowed a not inconsiderable amount of your greatness.

  1. Can’t believe it’s been 6 years.
    Will never forget the day football lost it’s most colourful character.

  2. R.I.P genius

  3. 6 years, and it feels like a day.

    RIP Boss.

  4. “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”.

    I liked you so much, Mr Clough. God bless your memory.

  5. For anyone who would like to read a personal insight into the great man, buy a copy of “Young Man, You’ve Made My Day”; written by Marcus Alton, the founder of http://www.brianclough.com and the initiator of the Nottingham Statue Campaign.

    6 years ago – it seems like only yesterday when Marlon King curled the ball into West Ham’s net to give us a 2-1 win and a fitting tribute!

  6. NICE ONE NFFC…………………..

    ==========================================

    Agree but I thought it was Marlin Harewood?

    • No Gill, Marlon had opened the scoreline FOR West Ham, we had sold him to them. Marlon King was his replacement that had come in from Gillingham if Im not wrong.

  8. Quite right NFFC that we reflect on the great man and his achievements for us.
    Maybe tho’ we shouldn’t forget a couple of other anniversaries around this time ?
    20 years ago (in a few weeks) Peter Taylor died 4 October 1990.
    21 years ago this month, unveiiing the bust of himself at the CG, Cloughie said the Brian Clough Stand should be renamed the “Brian Clough and Peter Taylor Stand”.
    I for one am still waiting.

  9. I can still remember exactly where I was when I heard the news. Can’t believe it was 6 years ago. RIP Sir Brian, never to be forgotten

  10. He was such a huge influence on me as a young lad I had the honour of meeting him twice and one very special moment .

    He was as Roy keane pointed out a true football genius and a very bright and generous human being.

    Nice one NFFC I will be raising a glass.

    U reds

  11. I think of him every day and I will always miss him.
    What a man.

    R.I.P Mr Clough

  12. “6 years ago – it seems like only yesterday when Marlon King curled the ball into West Ham’s net to give us a 2-1 win and a fitting tribute!”

    Please don’t mention that cunt’s name in relation to Brian ever again.

  13. Fair point, well made kt, if a little forceful
