Brian Clough - My Fake Diary
Thursday, 6 September 2012
On the ESPN site I found this Q & A:
Has any team ever won the top division the season after being promoted? Asked Bob Warner ... from Reading
Answer: This has actually been achieved on five occasions, most recently by Nottingham Forest in 1977-78. Managed by Brian Clough, Forest took the league championship the year after claiming the final promotion place by finishing third in the old Second Division.
The first to win the title the year after being promoted were Liverpool, in 1905-06.
It had to be my jinx team didn't it.
Still, they're in the shit now!
