CumbrianRam Posted August 29, 2013 Share Posted August 29, 2013 Just found an article about the 1987/88 season, using the summary from the year books and few things took my interest. 8 – Derby chairman Robert Maxwell invites Johan Cruyff to become technical director.15 – Johan Cruyff announces that he will become Barcelona coach for a year, declining the offer from Derby.First time I have ever heard about this failed approach to get Cruyff in a techincal director. Was it a serious move or just paper talk? Also from February in the same year3 – The Welsh FA announce the termination of Mike England’s contract, which had 6 months still to run.4 – FA of Wales secretary Alun Evans denies reports that Brian Clough is to be offered the job as part-time manager.8 – Brian Clough expresses his eagerness to become part-time manager of Wales, against the wishes of Forest chairman Maurice Roworth, and is due to discuss terms with the Welsh FA subcommittee tomorrow.9 – Brian Clough is set to take the Welsh job on the 24th, although he still has not got the nod from Forest.11 – Forest refuse Brian Clough permission to manage Wales.12 – Brian Clough says he will not resign from Forest over the Welsh job disappointment.http://spiritofmirko.com/2013/08/15/19871988-a-review-of-the-season-as-told-by-the-panini-football-yearbook/ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
