Yes - I grew up thinking it was normal for your local team to win the European Cup. Somewhere in the back of my mind I probably believe it could happen again.

A great, if flawed, man. He was big enough to apologise for the bad things he'd done in his last autobiography though.

I loved this man and his passion for the game - he reminded me of a garden gnome and I altered one of the several pictures I used to have of him to suit that image - gawd bless him - I hate f**king cancer - it takes the best away. :cry:

One of the greats even though thanks to him Forest took the best manager Orient ever had (in my lifetime anyway) Frank Clark when he retired.

A sad day for Football. Cloughie would have sorted those toesrags out at WBA v Fulham on Saturday.

More evidence of quality - how embarrased does Vegetables look here?

From the BBC site, which has credited him with winning back to back Championships with Forest - as if his achievements weren't great enough.

251 goals in 274 league appearances - amazing.

Yeah, at least we appreciated Clough while he was still with us. Clark, along with paul hart, got the rough end of the stick i think. It's still less than 10 years ago that Clark had us in the UEFA Cup quarter finals.

Not only was Brian Clough a great manager but he was also a top class player. Cloughie was Boro's most prolific goalscorer averaging almost a goal a game over 6 seasons - 204 goals in 222 starts. A petition was started a few months back to get Cloughie knighted, if anyone deserved it was him.

He'll be sadly missed. :(
