Great yarn here from Big Norm, recounting on the Under The Cosh podcast the time he was purposefully “brought back down to earth” by Nottingham Forest manager Brian Clough at some point during the 1990s.

It probably goes without saying but there’s a generous amount of coarse language from this point onwards…

Another fine example of Cloughie’s unique, off-kilter approach to keeping egos in check.

Magnificent, bone dry bastardry with just enough glint in the eye to keep you enamoured.
