Clough Stories - Ian Bowyer (trailer)

"It was the best decision I ever made." That's Ian Bowyer's verdict when looking back at an FA tribunal shortly after Brian Clough's arrival at Nottingham Forest in 1975.

Bowyer was out of contract and Cloughie had to go to the hearing at the FA's headquarters in London. The midfielder decided to stay at the City Ground and became a vital part of the side that won the league title and twice lifted the European Cup.

"He was the master at preparing you for matches," recalls Bowyer during this fascinating chat with pod host Marcus Alton.
