The rather important matter of three Championship points may be at stake in Saturday lunchtimes FL72 local derby between Derby and Nottingham Forest on Sky Sports, but whenever the fixture takes place it is forever associated with the memory and achievements of one man – Brian Clough. Both sets of fans have paid fitting tributes to their iconic title-winning former manager following his passing in 2004. So, ahead of the latest ‘Brian Clough derby’, here is a selection of classic quotes from one of the most charismatic and colourful football characters of them all…Classic Cloughie “The River Trent is lovely, I know because I have walked on it for 18 years” – on being the best.Im sure the England selectors thought if they took me on and gave me the job, Id want to run the show. They were shrewd because thats exactly what I would have done” – on never becoming England manager.Im loath to confess they could be as good as us. They are brilliant. It sticks in the craw a little bit because nobody likes Arsenal! Of course theres a Frenchman in charge, Wenger, and not many English people like Frenchmen. He is a top, top manager” – on Arsenal breaking Nottingham Forest’s record for 42 games unbeaten. Players lose you games, not tactics. Theres so much crap talked about tactics by people who barely know how to win at dominoes” – on his football tactics.Resignations are for prime ministers and those caught with their trousers down, not for me – on staying the course.I wouldnt say I was the best manager in the business. But I was in the top one – on his standing.Anybody who can do anything in Leicester but make a jumper has got to be a genius - on his ex-player Martin ONeill’s success.If God had wanted us to play football in the clouds, hed have put grass up there - on long-ball football.“I’m a little bit of an idealist, I do believe in fairies, and that is my outlook” – on his playing style.“We talk about it for 20 minutes and then we decide I was right” – on listening to players opinions. I only ever hit Roy the once. He got up so I couldnt have hit him very hard – on looking after Roy Keane at Forest.That Seaman is a handsome young man but he spends too much time looking in his mirror, rather than at the ball. You cant keep goal with hair like that” – on facial hair…and ponytales.“The players havent got enough heart to fill a thimble” – on his Brighton side’s 8-2 defeat to Bristol Rovers.“Good managers make good sides. There’s no such thing as a side making a manager” – on lucky players.“Don’s slightly different and his record proves over results that he perhaps is right. But having said that, I want to be like me” – on definitely not being ex-Leeds boss Don Revie.

Fantastic, its unbelievable, he said, speaking at the training ground after long celebrations at striker Jamie Vardys house. Im still punching myself. I cant quite believe it yet. Its not sunk in yet. It was a long night, last night… plenty of celebrating and Im feeling pretty drained at the minute.You have seen some of the scenes on video and that just continued on. And after the initial euphoria had finished everyone was just down.

The boys were jumping on each other and standing on furniture… I hope Vardys house is all right this morning.Everyone was just so excited and phoning their loved ones and messages coming through from everybody. It means so much to everyone involved with Leicester and all around the world. Just the effect weve had on people - it is felt from everywhere. Leicester goalkeeper coach Mike Stowell says the squads team spirit was the key factor in winning the Premier League. I cant quite believe it. Its safe to say I never thought Id be in this position right now. So it just puts things into perspective, how far we have come and the journey we have been on, its something that will go down in history, definitely.
