Cloughie would give the road sign thieves hell...

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

UN­HAPPY Kal Singh Dhindsa is lead­ing calls for Derby County and Not­ting­ham For­est to do the un­think­able and come to­gether – by re­plac­ing Brian Clough road signs that have dis­ap­peared from the A52. The Rams sup­porter is up­set that five of the 20 signs along the 15-mile stretch have been stolen since the road was re­named more than ten years ago. It is feared they have been taken as sou­venirs of the man who served both East Mid­lands clubs. “Brian Clough Way is not the same since the signs were taken,” says Dhindsa, and he wants the fierce ri­valry put to one side so Clough is rightly honoured. There are no coun­cil plans to re­place the miss­ing five signs and the County fa­natic reck­ons the clubs should unite. He said: “Per­haps some gen­er­ous bene­fac­tor may want to cover the costs. Maybe some of Cloughie’s for­mer clubs will con­trib­ute.” “If he was here to­day, I think he would prob­a­bly be giv­ing some­one a good telling off.”
