Brian Clough - My Fake Diary

Wednesday, 5 September 2012

I was pleased to read this:

Martin O'Neill's footballing education under Brian Clough is evident in many areas of his management, and here again the Ulsterman utilised the teachings of one of football's greatest to maximum effect.

Realising just what a coup this could be for Sunderland, O'Neill promptly visited Johnson at his home - twice. A famed tactic of Clough's, though the latter famously refused to leave the house of Dave McKay unless he signed for his Derby County side at once, it is an ever so simple manoeuvre but one that undoubtedly strikes a chord.
So it proved. Scarcely had the ink dried on Fletcher's contract, barely had the club photographers changed their film, than Johnson was putting pen to paper on a four-year deal and holding that scarf aloft.

Nice to be remembered...
