What I like about Clough so far is that he genuinely seems happy to be here...Evans never did, had a lot to say but made it clear he was bigger than the club and couldn't wait to get away, Flitcroft never seemed fully happy, always seemed like he'd got some sort of beef with the club and Coughlan well who knows, seemed grumpy and aloof to me!

I'll say again that you lot, the fans have played a huge part in that. The positivity, universal acceptance and in a lot of cases almost pride in him coming here WILL have given him a massive lift and will mean he wants to repay thay faith.

Of course 3 wins on the bounce helps ;-)

After a while, Evans created a "us vs them" mentality between the fans and the players. Very toxic in the end I felt.

Clough just seems to be a genuine bloke. And hopefully brings a level of identity that we need back at the club. Kind of lost ourselves a little

I think we are privileged to have him. Early days, however I think he will shape us, give us a sound base and ultimately progress us.

No almost about it. I'm massively proud that he's our gaffer. Still can't quite believe it to be honest. I found myself in a bit of awe while I was taking photos of him at Scunthorpe which is weird as I took plenty of pics of him while he was Burton manager. But now he's 'ours' it feels a lot different.

That all depends on our progression from now till then. Mid table and as near safe as dammit then it's job done and we'll feel fab.
Still crapping our pants in t'bottom four and the reception will be somewhat tense and muted.
However I think young Nigel will be looking at the former scenario and he'll be happy we're happy in his world.

Just from what I've seen so far under cloughie I definitely don't think we'll be crapping our pants come May.
Although this season is more or less a write off (barring some kind of miracle 25 game run of wins) it's obvious that he and JR have one eye on next season & getting a strong competive squad together for a promotion campaign in 21/22.
I believe fans won't be back this season so on our first home game in Aug 2021 im expecting young nigel to be welcomed loudly by 5000 happy stags fans.

I Always new about no 9 from my local rivals forest having been a Derby supporter from Brian Clough to Nigel Clough coming to the Rams, having had some wonderful years. The club was in a shambles under Paul Jewel in just over 4 years getting rid of huge wage earners that other clubs refused to match, He built the best Derby team for years on a shoestring has the 2013 play off final shows,, 7 years later 12th manager 160 million spent and still in the championship only bottom. I left Disgusted by the boards action and C-E-O Sam Rush only been there 6 months,and for me a pure dick=head on football. Sheff utd==Burton Albion==F+A cup semi final== 2 league cup semifinals==1 Playoff semi final and a automatic promotion.
to the Championship, with Burton Albion, and two unbelievable years,in the Championship with gates as small has 2-700 fans,,and still left them sitting comfortable in league 1.
Mansfield, with a new stand a Hotel,and better Parking could be comfortable a Championship club, And with my working at Workshop--Mansfield- Clipstone colliery i certainly have fond memory's of the area, and if Clough can work his magic you deserve it, - forget if we dont do it today==we try again tomorrow ==NO i in Team.

If we win tonight we'll be sat 6 points from the playoffs.

I'm not trying to get carried away but the league is tight this year. Imagine if on 1st January we were within 6 points of the playoff places and Nigel starts improving the squad!

Is that unrealistic?

The season should be written off yet.

Winning two games from every three until end of season will get us into the play offs.
