We all know that Don Revie went off to Dubai after resigning the England job. But no one seems to know how he got on there. In another vein, we all know that Sir Alf won a championship with perhaps the most unlikely club in the history of the Football League, but few could tell me off the top of their heads how Ramsey got on at Birmingham City, or when he was there.
The subject has the makings of a very short quiz. No Googling.
- Brian Clough was manager of Leeds United for 44 days. How long was Jock Stein’s reign at the club?
- Who was the first former England captain to manage a club to a European Cup Final?
- Which football club was managed by two former England players on its way to a European Cup Final?
- Name two England managers who have taken clubs from promotion from the old Second Division to runners-up spot in Division One the following year.
- Finally, give the wording of the curse placed on Brian Clough’s former clubs. To say nothing of Don Revie’s. There’s been a lot of water under the bridge since this game, hasn’t there?
