Article in The Independent (print version), 29th September 2004, quoting from the final interview with Brian Clough (UK football manager who had recently died – he was talking about a new manager he admired, can’t remember who)

“…like me, he doesn’t believe in the star system. He’s consumed with team spirit and discipline… The players have to fit with his vision and pattern of play, which is right. Don’t confuse footballers – keep it simple.”

That one comment is text book ‘Good to Great‘ and I’ll bet he never read the book!
