RIP. Just a shame he was never knighted. There was a petition going round only a few weeks ago to get him to become Sir Brian Clough, but it's too late for that now...

A travesty he wasnt ever offered the England job!

Remember the time when fans invaded the pitch and he started kicking and punching anyone that came close to him. This one guy just looked at him and said sorry! Legend. He'll be missed.

There'll be flowers, memorials and all sorts here soon, the town of his birth - a true Boro legend, in every meaning of the word. 222 games - 204 goals. As a player, he was arguably our best ever, and Boro born and raised (and proud).

Our region's finest ever sportsman, and the greatest ever character in football. I signed the petition last week for his knighthood.

"Don't send me flowers when I'm dead. If you like me, send them while I'm alive."

"I want no epitaphs of profound history and all that type of thing. I contributed - I would hope they would say that, and I would hope somebody liked me."

Brian Clough, we all loved you.

RIP.

i was at the game, and pak played better, but it was a close game, it wasnt a pasting. if we had gotten youhana out earlier we would have won or if we had gotten them 4 down alot earlier then we would have won i felt, 230 was a winning score, unfortunate but we have to look forward to the aus series now.

im not saying this because we have lost but i would rather us lose every odi so far and beat the aussies and everybody knows we have a great chance to beat aus

yeah i was at the game as well, sitting in the Raglan Stand...did anyone else see Sunil Gavaskar and Ritik Roshan, they were in the boxes. All it would have taken for India to win was Ganguly, Shewag or Laxman to have scored an extra 20-30 runs and Pakistan werent exactly amazing or anything. Surely gavaskar has to be dropped now as im sure there is someone in the whole of India who is better then him. Dont forget India were also missing Tendulkar, Khan and Balaji, who if had playd Pakistan would have got hammered. Agarkar did well and played some brilliant shots and the catch by Yuvraj was amazing.....

india needed that 4th wicket early after pak were 28-3 and needed 220, and we would have won i felt

Khan : an idiot who doesn't know how to nurse his injuries and comes to bowl india out of contention a lot recently ( think jayasuria at the asia cup where he ripped him apart ) and then limps to the crease in his 4th over . i think he lets india down too often . Nehra maybe inexperienced but hes a smart bowler.

Tendulkar : best batsman in the world , but as matty hayden said , he goes for the centuries all too often and slows down proceedings . But his statistics are too great , so i cant diss him too much .

Balaji : not exactly indias best bowler at the moment , only good if the pitch assists him ( and this pitch didnt , ganguly , lawman , sehwag , malik and hameed all got out to stupid shots and not great bowling )

Agarkar : Highly underrated player , i dont know which idiot leads ur selection committee and leaves him out of the team so often and take players like rohan gavaskar ( an idiot who cant bowl , bat or field )

Was living in Nottingham for the 92-3 season, when it all fell apart for Ol' Big Head; was such a shame it ended that way. A total legend. The 3 year turnaround of 1976-9 will never be repeated in English football, the best manager England never had. RIP

and had dravid walked like a gentelman after the nick india wouldnt have made a good score :rolleyes:, i know the situation was very bad for india , but i think walking off should be applauded , it helps cricket as a whole as younger players will do the same when they see ppl like inzi or dravid walking.

Well in a crucial game such as this Dravid should not have walked and i very much doubt ANY pakistani batsmen would have walked.

When you're out, you should walk.

i was at the game and when i got home, a pakistani friend of mine told me tht twice a player nicked it and nobody appealed. once was dravid and once was youhana i think he sed, or some other player

no player in the world will walk if nobody appeals, not even brian lara. if the team appeals then fine, but if nobody appeals a player will not walk.

lara always walks , and there was an appeal but only by moin , but youhana never nicked anything yesterday . i saw each ball of that match on Tv , its much easier to find out if theres a nick on tv .

Did anyone here follow it? I'm surprised there hasn't been a thread on it. Well done to Europe. All players contributed at least a point to the overall score, and there were some outstanding performances, including from Garcia, Westwood, and of course Montie who finished it all off. With brilliant captaining by Langer. So who do you reckon played the biggest part in Europe's Ryder cup win?

Without a doubt, the man who played a bigger part than any other person in the history of the competition - Hal Sutton.
