Although Forest were the defending Champions, Hamburg went into the 1980 European Cup Final as favourites having thrashed Real Madrid 5-1 in the second leg of the semi-final - and with England captain and European Footballer of the Year Kevin Keegan desperately wanting a winner's medal. But master tactician Brian Clough had their measure. Playing right footed players on the left wing so they can cut in has become fashionable with modern coaches but Cloughie was doing it 30 years ago. Step forward John Robertson. Auf wiedersehen Keegan. Forest became the first team to win the European Cup more times than they had won their own league.
