Footnotes

  • Brian Clough and Peter Taylor's partnership at Derby County Football Club brought success which has yet to be repeated by any manager since, the pair taking over the reigns at Derby in May 1967 and proceeding to re-build the side with Taylor instrumental in signing players such as Dave Mackay and Roy McFarland. Derby were promoted to the First Division in 1969, they finished fourth in 1970 and won the League Championship in 1972 - the first in the club's history. Derby reached the semi-finals of the European Cup the following season, controversially losing to Juventus. They departed on the 15th October 1973 when they both resigned.
