The top one: Nottingham Forest fans remember Brian Clough

The 21st March 2019 marked what would have been the 84th birthday of one of football’s greatest managers; Brian Clough.

The former Nottingham Forest boss guided them through what was an unparalleled period of success in the club’s history. Throughout the 1970s he won two European Cups, a European Super Cup and a First Division title. Further triumphs were also to follow in the form of the League Cup.

Reacting to a tweet wishing him happy birthday, fans flooded to pay tribute to their late manager.

There were plenty of superlatives for Clough, with supporters of the Reds labelling him the best manager of all time. One supporter found it fitting to leave a single goat emoji, symbolising his status as one of the greatest ever.

Another fan said he’d never be forgotten as tributes continued to pour in with one individual claiming that it was because of him that they found love for the club. One tweet used one of Clough’s famous quotes.

Here’s the best of the tributes.
