2009 marks the 30th anniversary of Nottingham Forest’s first European Cup triumph, masterminded by Brian Clough. A provincial football club broke and slipping towards Football League Division Three when he took charge, had conquered England and Europe inside three years. He achieved many great things with the clubs he managed, most notably Derby County and Nottingham Forest which would be considered impossible and unthinkable now. Clough would probably disagree but he was more than just a football manager.

As a Sunderland fan Brian was my boyhood hero and although I had watched this programme when it was aired on TV I bought the dvd as I knew that l would watch it again and again and it also contains some extra bits which were not shown on TV.
He was a unique man and I am sure there will never be anyone like him again. His wife made the statement that he was the best manager that England never had but I think that he was just the best English Manager that there ever was.
If you are interested in Clough or just interested in football this is fascinating stuff, although not the full story of his life by any means.

I've watched this three times since I bought it and I am sure will watch it many more. I'm sure I will never do so without a tear or two on my cheek.

Along with the programme that Brian Moore did many years ago - can't remember the name of it - this is a moving tribute to Brian Clough, and a true reflection of his greatness. Some of it follows Nigel Clough, including his appointment as manager at Derby, as he remembers his father, and there are also excellent snatches of interviews with Barbara Clough.

It appears the DVD was released as a balance to - or maybe to cash in on the interest in - the film "Damned United" but I'm sure it will be watched long after the Damned United is forgotten. The real story about Clough is not Leeds (although the TV exchange with Don Revie, chaired by Austin Mitchell and included on the DVD, is engrossing) but Derby and Nottingham Forest. Hence the interviews with Roy McFarland, Kenny Burns, Trevor Francis, Peter Shilton, Martin O Neill, John Robertson and John McGovern are excellent. "He wasn't my kind of bloke, and I wouldn't go out for a pint with him," says McGovern, "but play for him ? To play for him I'd walk across the Sahara desert."

Yes, the DVD could have been longer and taken in Clough's later success with teams that featured the likes of Stuart Pearce and Roy Keane. But it nonetheless highlights the achievements of the outstanding manager in an era where instinct and insight could trump money, and when humour and courage could light up the English game.

Priceless.

Format: DVD
If you were an admirer of Mr.Clough then you'll love this. It charts the end of his playing career all the way to his back-to-back European Cup days with Nottingham Forest. It was made by ITV in response to the very 'bad press' given to Cloughie in that Satanic verse of a book called the Damned United, which apparently was a book of faction about his days at Leeds United.

The DVD has two great interviews with Austin Mitchell and journalists on his arrival at Leeds United and one directly after. It clearly sets the record straight on the issue and forms a great tribute from ITV to the Clough family as a whole as they are shown paying tribute to their father. The Clough family are mainly represented in the interviews by 'Our number 9', Nigel Clough and his mum Barbara.

As a Forest supporter from Burton-upon-Trent I cannot give the DVD high enough praise as the Clough family are local heroes. I was only disappointed that the DVD was not longer and could celebrate the great teams that came after 1980. I couldn't help feeling that a multitude of players would want to be on a tribute DVD to give their stories of the great character he was. I would have been keen to here the acknowledgement of help given to their careers from Neil Webb, Steve Hodge, Stuart Pearce, Des Walker, Roy Keane and so on.

Format: DVD
This documentary is just brilliant.

It tells a great human story wonderfully well, with style, wit and terrific use of archive. There's a terrific cast of interviewees - from friends (like Sir Geoff Boycott and Lawrie McMenemy) and players (such as Martin O'Neill, John McGovern, and Johnny Giles) to family (Clough's wife and their son, Nigel).

The word "definitive" gets over-used alot, but this is the real deal.

And to top it all off the bonus features include two full length uncut Clough TV interviews from the archives - one of them being the classic Clough and Revie debate which took place days after Clough's resignation from Leeds Utd. This really has to be seen to be believed. As a piece of theatre it far exceeds anything depicted in the Damned Utd film - or even the book for that matter.

Watching this documentary you realize that the real, unadulterated Clough doesn't require any embellishment. The fact far outweighs the fiction.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
My Step-son had a copy of 'The Damned United' film for Christmas last year. He loved it and despite my initial misgivings, he persuaded me to give it a go. To my surprise, I thoroughly enjoyed it too. (And yes, I appreciate all the controversy about it.)

Interest raised, I recorded a programme from the BBC about the great man a few months ago but stupidly missed off the last few minutes. I bought this DVD in the hope it was the same thing. Sadly, it wasn't, but it doesn't matter because it's superb.

I'll admit that when the A52 between Nottingham and Derby was re-named 'Brian Clough Way' a couple of years back, I thought it was stupid. I'm no great football fan and couldn't see what all the fuss was about, but having watched this DVD, the next time I travel that way I'll give the man a nod of considerable respect as I pass the signs.

For the details of what's on the DVD, please read the other reviews as there's no point in me repeating it here. But there is one thing that I was quite astonished by that I do want to mention.

Right at the end of the main programme, you're shown a bit of archive footage of each of the former players who are featured, and then a silent shot of them as they are today. I found that inexplicably moving, especially for some reason Peter Shilton. I can't understand why this was, but I'm sure I won't be the only one similarly affected by it. Perhaps it's the feelings of genuine warmth for Brian that the film instills in the viewer simply coming to a head when you realise that he's no longer with us.

This is a fine piece of film making and even my wife, who has not the slightest interest in football, was glued to the screen all the way through.

My only advice? Buy it!
