UK Payment: Paypal (preferred) or Postal Orders Overseas Payment: By Paypal only The Clough years In 1967, the now legendary, Brian Clough took over Derby County (in partnership with assistant manager Peter Taylor) and led them to their greatest glories. When Clough took over at the helm, the Rams were treading water in the Second Division and the club's only honour, the 1946 FA Cup win, was becoming a distant memory. There was little expectation that the young manager was going to lead his team to the club's first League Championship. With Clough having clinched the influential signing of Dave MacKay, Derby were promoted to the First Division in 1969 and won their first ever Football League Championship in 1972. On 8th May 1972, Clough was on holiday in Spain with his Derby side as they were crowned champions with their season having already ended. Back home Leeds United and Liverpool failed to get the results necessary in their last games and this was enough for the Rams to clinch the title.
