brian clough leeds united manager When Revie left Leeds to manage England it was he that advised the Leeds board to appoint Johnny Giles as his successor. This recommendation also recieved the backing of most of the Leeds players and no doubt would have gone down well with the Elland Road faithfull. It didn't come as welcome news to the Leeds players or fans when it was announced that Brian Clough (nicknamed Big Head) would be taking over the reigns of manager. Brian Clough, born in Middlesbrough the same town as Don Revie, was one of the biggest critics of Don Revie's Leeds United, attacking their style of play and was even known to have called them cheats.
One of the first things Clough did when he took over was tell the Leeds players that they should throw all their medals in the bin, since they'd won them unfairly. This did not help Clough's case. Neither did the teams start to the season managing to win only once in seven games and scoring five goals. The crowd blamed John McGovern, a Clough signing for the bad start. McGovern was filling in for Billy Bremner who had been suspended for 8 games following the infamous Charity Sheild brawl with Keegan.
In mid September the Leeds board probably realised they had made the biggest blunder by appointing Clough. After 44 days in the job he was sacked, leaving Elland Road with a 25,000 pay-off.
