GRAEME SOUNESS: Nottingham Forest could learn so much from the way Brian Clough ran their club

Reading now: 144

I have so many memories of encounters with Brian Clough, whose Nottingham Forest team had the sign over Liverpool for a few years, but the day we planned a £5 note trick on him sticks in my mind as much as any.

Clough had engendered an incredible fighting spirit in Forest at the time and there was a great deal of fear about his management style.

I took it upon myself to go into a Liverpool joke shop and buy about a dozen of these devices which allowed you to attach a £5 or £10 note to a fishing line on a coil with a spring.

You can't see the line, of course, so when your target goes to pick the note up, it springs back out their reach, leaving them looking ridiculous.
