HIS reign as Leeds United manager ended after just 44 days amid bitterness and recriminations.
And, four decades on, the story of Brian Clough’s spell in charge at United remains as compelling as ever.
Now, ahead of Saturday’s 10th anniversary of his death, the Yorkshire Evening Post wants to hear your views on his ill-fated time at Leeds as well as his triumphs with Derby County and Nottingham Forest.
A critic of Leeds’s competitive playing style during their rise to the top of European football, Clough was a shock choice to succeed Whites manager Don Revie when he left to take the England job in 1974.
He was quickly shown the door after failing to win over a side still loyal to ‘The Don’.
Clough’s short stay as Leeds boss was immortalised in controversial 2006 novel The Damned Utd as well as a subsequent film of the same name.
