Peter Taylor and Brian Clough appear at the BBC Sports Review of the Year TV show in 1972.
PETER TAYLOR - BIOGRAPHY
Born Nottingham 1928.
Discovered by hometown club Nottingham Forest (although he never played a first team game), he went on to make his name at Coventry and Middlesbrough - where he met Brian Clough.
Turned to football management and coaching after his playing career was over, first with Burton Albion in 1962. The club won the Southern League Cup in 1964.
Became Clough's assistant manager at Hartlepool and together they turned around the club's fortunes.
In May 1967 both men left to join Derby County where they rebuilt the team, signing players such as Roy McFarland and Dave Mackay. The pair won the League Championship in 1972.
In 1973 Taylor and Clough resigned from Derby County after a series of disputes. They joined Brighton in 1973 but Clough left when he was headhunted by Leeds United in 1974.
Taylor rejected the offer a position at Leeds and stayed on at Brighton for two more seasons.
In 1976 Peter Taylor joined Clough again, this time at Nottingham Forest, where they formed a highly successful partnership. They won the Championship and the European Cup with the team in 1979 and 1980.
The signing of John Robertson is widely regarded as the main cause for the breakdown in the Clough-Taylor working relationship.
Taylor retired in 1982 but returned as manager of Derby later that year.
Taylor's autobiography - With Clough by Taylor - led to friction between the two men.
Taylor died on holiday in 1990.
Honouring a Forest legend - Peter Taylor
Peter Taylor is a legend in football management. During the 1970s his partnership with Brian Clough became one of the most successful in football with Derby County and Nottingham Forest.
Together the two men helped Forest win the European Cup two years running, still thought to be one of the greatest achievements in football history.
Now the family of Peter Taylor have spoken of their anger that the club have never formally honoured his memory.
Taylor collapsed and died from a heart attack while on holiday in Majorca in October 1990.
His family say Derby County have now "shamed" their Nottingham rivals by planning to unveil a statue of Taylor alongside Brian Clough.
Taylor's daughter said Forest had shown "disrespect" to her father ever since failing to observe a minute’s silence in his memory at the club’s first home game, a few days after his death.
Mrs Dickinson said: "I’m fairly critical about Nottingham Forest and I think it’s quite disgraceful the way they haven’t recognised my father’s contribution to the success at Forest.
"But it’s really nice that Derby County, both the fans and the club, have decided to recognise the contribution of both of them."
The Taylor family say that, unlike the Clough family, they welcomed the recent dramatisation of the two men’s relationship in the film The Damned United.
The film acknowledges the important contribution of Taylor to one of football's finest partnerships.
