Factual error: At the end of the movie it says Clough went on to win 2 European cups, "a feat no British manager has achieved since". This is incorrect as Alex Ferguson had won 2 prior to the film's release.

Suggested correction: The end says he went on to win the European Cup in 1979 and again in 1980. It is the feat of winning back to back cups that has never been done by a British manager since 1980. It wasn't about the number of cup wins, since Bob Paisley ended up winning his 3rd Cup in 1981, having previous won back to back Cups in 77/78.


Factual error: Towards the end of the film when Brian Clough goes to see Peter Taylor at his house in Brighton, there is a 'Pay & Display' ticket machine visible in the car park in the background. The film-makers have done a good job at placing period vehicles in shot but seem to have forgotten the shiny black new (solar powered?) ticket machine.

Brian Clough: We're from the north, Pete. What do we care about Brighton? Bloody southerners. Look where we are! We're almost in France.
