    Thanks to the interweb I can tell you!
    On the 4 May 1968 we played Blackpool at home in the last game of the season and lost 3-1 to finish 18th on Goal difference.  Ipswich (the other East Anglian team) were champions that year. We won 13 matches all season and lost 19. Interestingly, considering Brian's mantra was to start at the back, we shipped 78 goals.  Mind, we scored 71!
    There were 5 players in that final team that we would all recognise as being part of our first great side - Roy Mac, John Robson, Alan Hinton, Kevin and John O'Hare.  Kevin, of course wasn't a Cloughie signing, he was Tim Ward's greatest legacy.  Also in the team were Reg Matthews, Mick Hopkinson, Pat Wright, Jim Walker, Arthur Stewart and Richie Barker.  Barker and Walker did have (smaller) parts to play in our future success. Ron Webster was also at the club and Alan Durban but not in the squad.
    There is a good argument to make to say that as a team we never really took off until Sir Brian signed Willie Carlin from Sheffield Utd part way through the 68/69 season.  He provided the feistiness, leadership and midfield control that we could probably do with next season.  He was a small and bloodyminded, shop steward of a scouser and we were to replace him with a small and bloodyminded, shop steward of a scot in Archie Gemmill.  Put either in our current side and you would see a huge difference.
    When we look back we see only success but - and it might appear to be heresy now - there were many who doubted Roy McFarland's abilities, Alan Hinton who couldn't tackle and John O'Hare who was too slow. Kevin was a hero from his debut onwards and the undoubted star of the team. There were certainly many on the terraces who objected to Brian's brashness and that he didn't deliver in his first season what he promised. The 67/68 team produced worse than Tim Ward's teams.  Had social media been around there would have been a vigorous Clough Out campaign.  
    You forget too that these were the days before the internet and worldwide TV - when every single player of almost any age is widely known about - so that Brian and Peter could go and steal Roy from Tranmere under Liverpool's noses; and you forget too that the Transfer Window is a recent thing so that, in those days you could sign anyone at any time.  In many ways it made life easier for a manager and less expensive for a club. There were no agents, no cameras outside club gates and no deadline day.

    Frannie Lee was fat and over the hill, Charlie George was just a diva and Gerry Daly the product of a good team round him.

    Does anyone know if Maguire tweets about other clubs and grasses other clubs up to the EFL or is it just us?
    Just wondering if he has ever raised concerns with owners owning 2 clubs internationally and using this to transfer players to get around, and make a mockery of P&S.
    Also has he asked the EFL to check when a chairman who owns 2 clubs transfers a player, say from Greek clubs, how are the values calculated, are they realistic values based on current market value, or over/under inflated to help with P&S.
    What about owners transferring debt from the club to their own private business. Glass houses Mr Gibbo.
    Maguire seems so up on financial issues with Derby you would hope he is on the pulse with all other 23 championship clubs.

    Maybe but the simplest answer is to close the loophole by changing the rules.  In my mind I have no doubt that the driver for this is boro’s involvement.

    You've said that about every takeover bid.
    Sooner or later, you will get one wrong. However, given how many there are, you'll still have an impressive record.

    Imagine Becks sitting in the exec seats up in the West Stand, the whole ground rising in appreciation, "David Beckham's Black and White Army" ringing round the stadium......then it dies down, goes quiet, and a lone voice from the back of the South Stand gives it, "Posh Spice, takes it up the.........."

    If only he had £millions to deposit from a huge cocaine smuggling empire the EFL would have approved him.

    Reggie Greenwood reacted to Ghost of Clough in EFL appeal   
    Spot on.
    So much has happened over the past couple of years that I completely forgot about this point. I had assumed, like charge 1, that the EFL were arguing we would have failed P&S without it.
    Baswd on the Decision Document from the original hearing, charge 1 specifically claims the stadium sale meant we avoided failing P&S.
    However, charge 2 only claims that by having non-compliant accounts, we have breached P&S rules.
     
    The LAP have concluded that the accounts are non-compliant so a punishment is required for breaching rules.
    The logical punishment to me is a fine and resubmission of the P&S figures using a striaght-line method. The reason a points deduction isn't warranted is because no on field benefit was achieved.
