Mr Clough - The Best Ever England Manager Who Never Was,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Clough - The Brian Clough Story [DVD] (DVD)
This DVD covers everything concerning Brian Clough's climb to the very highest level in the football world.
It covers also the release of the book and the film 'Damned United'
and compares and explains the huge differences between both.
This DVD is football history never to be equalled, Brian Clough took a small virtual non-league team at the time Nottingham Forest; within under a five year period to become European Champions (Two years in a row), this feat of a normal UK domestic league team away from the big four becoming champions of Europe will never ever be able to happen again and never will.
The DVD shows in depth what all true football fans knew already that because Brian Clough was not a 'Yes Man' the F.A. even though he was the best manager in the country; blocked him from becoming the England manager. "People in high authority are scared of experience, knowhow and success" by an individual doing things his own way.
The DVD is at the end very sad, I had a tear in my eye, knowing that Brian Clough was a outspoken footballing genius who was corruptly and unfairly blocked out of the job he wanted so dearly the England job and to many people all over the world have stated that if he was in charge of the national team then, England would have won the world cup again and again.
For any real football fan of any age this DVD is a must buy...

Most people think that those in power like those in the FA will do anything which increases their profits but this isn't true as the story of BC being kept from the England Manager's job.
Above all it is control of what they consider the agenda should be that matters to these people. BC had his own agenda which no doubt would have brought him into conflict with the FA Apparatchiks so it was a not contest decision for them to reject him.
They know they will make profits anyway from mediocre managers so it really doesn't matter who they appoint and though not having won anything since 1966 might be a considered failure they have never been so secure or so rich.
When failure is so well rewarded by the loyalty of fans they will never change.

Virtual non-league team indeed! They had been relegated from the First Division (That's the Premier League to you) 3 seasons prior to Clough arriving.
After reading your other reviews I see that you are a Spurs fan. Well, guess what? Clough's first game in charge of Forest was a 1-0 win over Tottenham in an FA Cup 3rd Round Replay.
Kids today... I don't know.
