League over European Cup any day and I don't support Man Utd.
Wrong, when Forest won the European Cup it was a proper event, not a Mickey Mouse hybrid format. Man Ure always had stars, Forest didn't.

This when England had the best overall depth in both leagues.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

True, Forest winning it was an incredible achievement without the ££££ spent nowadays and he took them from the division below to this success.

Legend of the game and just about the only thing Forest and Derby fans could agree on.

Too bad that format isn't going today, but such is life and he did very well with a team that weren't great as individuals.

When Gary Shaw plays in a winning Euro cup team, then it has to be good. At the same time Dugarry played on a winning World Cup team.

Re: Jose Mourinho quits as Chelsea's manager

I still remember the 1993 Marseille team with Basil Boli (and a Barthez with hair in goal) that pipped Rangers, amazingly, to the final Vs AC Milan... then scoring the winner in the final and eclipsing his previous best career moment - head butting Stuart Pearce in the 92 euro's and getting away with it scott free

Re: Jose Mourinho quits as Chelsea's manager

Brian clough rocked and I think that Nottingham Forest winning back to back European cup titles from 1979-1980 is the most impressive achievement by an English club, given the size of the club, budget etc.
It is quite interesting that since the champions league format was introduced in 1992/93, no team has successfully defended their title in the competition. In the 90s, Milan, Ajax and Juve all won the tournament one year before losing in the final the next.

Re: Jose Mourinho quits as Chelsea's manager

I know Cruyff won the European Cup and Cup Winners Cup as a manager, but never the UEFA Cup.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Jose Mourinho quits as Chelsea's manager

I'm not sure about that. It will be interesting to find out if anyone has.
It is quite funny that Arsene Wenger has never won a European trophy as a manager, and has he been a runner-up in all 3 of those competitions, the cup winners' cup in 1992 with Monaco, and the UEFA Cup in 2000 and champions league in 2006 with Arsenal.

Maybe the Trapp has done it.

Re: Jose Mourinho quits as Chelsea's manager

Yes, Giovanni Trappatoni has done the deed.

With Juvenuts he won.

European Cup :Winner: 1984-85.
Cup Winners' Cup :Winner: 1983-84.
UEFA Cup :Winner: 1976-77, 1992-93.
European Super Cup :Winner: 1984.
Intercontinental Cup :Winner: 1985.

Re: Jose Mourinho quits as Chelsea's manager

The Trap also won a 3rd UEFA Cup title, with Inter in 1991 I think.
Wow the fact that he won every single major competition with Juve is very impressive.

Trap's failure was only with the national team
