Football mourns one of the greats
Brian Clough died from stomach cancer at Derby City Hospital aged 69. The larger-than-life figure, who began his stellar managerial career at Pools back in 1965, had undergone a liver transplant almost two years earlier. He won the league championship with Derby County, and both league and European titles with Nottingham Forest.
