Senility might be a bit of a sensitive topic after Conte's little outburst

Fergie >>>>> Clough >> Wenger.
Spot on 92ers.. absolute admiration for BC but Taylor was half of his success. Taylor the brains and tactician but Clough the mind, psychology and character of the team.

Not too sensitive in the London/national press - donít give a shit about somebody being called senile but any mention of proven match fixing/compliance is ott and below the belt

Should include Peter Taylor in this discussion... compare and contrast with how Clough did with and without him as his assistant.

They would have been fine I reckon. You only have to see how Van Gaal calling a journalist "fat man" was hilarious but Mourinho calling out Conte as a cheat is immature to see that.

Two league titles with Derby and Forest was impressive. But ultimately just two league titles and a few league cups. The European Cups don't impress me for reasons outlined above. Malmo ffs.
