To suggest... that my father would ever snub anybody and refuse to shake hands is a nonsense. I have many personal warm memories of Brian Clough and I never fully understood what turned him from an ardent disciple into an arch enemy of my dad. My dad didn't understand either! The film portrays my dad as some haughty, humourless, stand-offish big shot. It is quite the opposite of the warm, caring, funny and brilliant man that he was. Ask the players he coached, ask the ladies in the laundry and tea room at Elland Road. In fact, ask anyone who actually knew him!
(Duncan Revie, Mail On Sunday)
